DH going vegan for 21 days!!!

Hi all! Well here is the latest and greatest news! My DH has made the decision to go VEGAN for 21 days. Now all of you may or may not know that my DH is a 100% carnivore! So there maybe some grumpy days, but he wants to do this. Detoxing is not always easy. He is a great advocate for veganism and knows it is best for him. He is my best supporter, always telling everyone he talks to how healthy a vegetarian diet is. Today is the day he marked as his starting day. I am going to be eating a very healthy vegan diet to help him along. He wants to detox a bit so he is hoping to have breakfast, lunch, and snacks HIGH RAW. Pictures are worth a thousand words. :o) You can do this honey! I believe in you! Enjoy!!

Green smoothie breakfast. Spinach, banana, and blueberries. Look at that awesome watermelon! It is huge, sure hope it tastes as good as it looks. :o)

He is so melodramatic!

His last words before drinking his green smoothie were, "No More Steaks!"

All gone! 2 quarts consisted of 4 cups of spinach, 1 banana, and blueberries. I added a bit of stevia because DH has an awful sweet tooth. His last words after drinking his smoothie were,

"Hey this was really good!"

Snack time and he was ready! We had been out working in the yard, garden, and pool so his morning calories were burnt. 2 organic white peaches and an ounce of raw mixed nuts.
I only had a peach, but man was it a good peach. I love my CSA!

Lunch time! DH had CSA cucumbers, carrots, and tomatoes along side a chocolate protein drink. His drink is made with chocolate rice milk (yes he loves chocolate), banana, and Sun Warrior Raw Brown Rice Protein Powder. Veggie girl turned me on to this and I love it. DH said it was a good lunch, but the drink was a bit grainy.

He said he will get used to it because the flavor was great.

Here is my lunch. Cherry tomatoes fresh from the garden, cucumbers, and carrots. My protein drink is made from vanilla hemp milk, Sun Warrior Raw Brown Rice Protein Powder, and a bit of orange juice. I was trying to get a "50- 50 bar flavor" Kinda worked.

Dinner tonight is going to be Eggplant Parmesan from Susan at

I will keep you posted on DH's success! I am hoping that he will feel so good and see such great results that he will want to continue on with a vegetarian diet.

Oh you ask, why 21 days? Because my birthday is in 21 days so it

just seemed like a good number. :O)

Thanks for visiting!

Wow! Congrats DH! I think that would be hard for ME and I'm not a huge meat person really. You really can do it, and you'll probably feel great in the process, right there next to your beautiful wifey!

That's wonderful! I hope the trial goes well, and maybe we can even woo him over to the dark side for good... ;)

Tell DH, way to go! I like how his pictures start out not grumpy, but not happy either. then they progress to him smiling.

He can have a "steak" if you grill a portobello mushroom. I think Isa posted a recipe for them this year on her blog.

Yay Pop! I'm proud of you :) You can do it! You can be an example to me, and Jr and my DH too!
