I’m giving my liver a break. For the last month, my diet has consisted mostly of meat, starches and beer. Being a huge veggie lover, I can feel that my body is not happy with me.
At the beginning of our camping trip, Mike and I agreed to make a conscious effort to eat healthy. We were actually quite good about not buying any junk food on the road and were constantly eating fruit and were successfully avoiding fast food chains. But later on, the healthy eating was slowly overcome by the festivities of summer and we just ate like everyday was a holiday. It also didn’t help that camping food usually equates to grilling lots of red meat and eating s’mores.
So after 28 meat-filled days, I am going on a vegetarian break. No meat, dairy, salt, sugar, oil, and alcohol for at least 3 days. My diet will consist only of fresh fruits, vegetables and beans. As of 12:46PM today, all I’ve had is one carrot, one small cucumber, a banana, a few slices of pineapple and a cup of cooked mongo beans. I do miss the meat but I know my body will thank me after the three days are over.
In the meantime, let me take you on a visual tour of some of things that I ate during my North American holiday.
Uploading all these photos made me hungry. Now, where’s that carrot….
