Arktoi needs to make her "things" more specific.
This isn’t strictly speaking a vegan rant (‘cause the cookie was not vegan) but a food rant in general, but this seems like the best place to put it.
Time and again, I buckle under for foods I know logically I shouldn’t eat because I want it, damn it! The regret and accompanying stomach ache are never far behind. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been steadily working toward a vegan diet. I’ve bought only vegan food for the house and even made a trip to Food Fantasies, the local trippy hippie health food store (which I love but don’t think I’m cool enough to frequent), for vegan “butter.” When we’ve gone out, I’ve been careful to order things I could be at least fairly certain were vegan. (Can you ever be 100% sure at a non-vegetarian restaurant?) But then today…
I don’t want to blame my indiscretion of my period, but let’s just say it was a contributing factor. All I wanted was a damn cookie! I knew it had milk in it, that it was ginormous and gooey in the center. I even knew that I didn’t really want it but that it was only a pale substitute for the giant slice of moist chocolate cake with fudge icing that I really want, but I was weak and got the cookie anyway. Now my stomach is doing weird freestyle laps, and I feel like I’m going to be sick. =^(
Can I put a positive spin on this? Maybe it’s my wake-up call to stay away from the garbage.
