Thanks for the Support VikingBride2Be
I’m going to try and post some of my thoughts/plans in order to keep myself on track.
The big thing for me right now is doing enough food shopping and staying a few days ahead of my eating. Tomorrow I will go to the food store. I will buy dried chick peas and soak them over night and cook them Sunday morning. I will also buy enough vegetables to make 4 large salads (and other groceries). My next super market trip (after tomorrow) will be on Wednesday. I think a Wed/Sat shopping schecule will work well for me right now. I hope to eventually transition into a vegan diet (for Feb/March at least), but will use up the food I currently have slowly. I followed a whole foods vegan diet in 2012 and had a lot of success. I feel more comfortable with this plan because it worked for me in the past. I’m hoping to avoid caffeine and alcohol over this 2 month period.
