Vegan Cuts Box saves this Emotional Day

As an emotional eater, whenever something happens out of the ordinary to get me stirred up, I usually revert to old eating habits for comfort. This means carbs and alcohol.  That kind of happened today.  

I ran out of hemp milk and was pretty hungry, so for breakfast I served up a double helping of tofu scramble.  This wasn't such a great idea.  That much food (and spicy food for that matter) as the first thing into my system in the morning is never a good idea.  I was feeling pretty crappy for a couple hours.


At around 10 or 11, I ate my almonds.  For some reason, we all got sidetracked and realized at about 12:30 that it was time to eat lunch.  Since I had a doctor's appointment, I just went ahead and went to whole foods.  Man, their salad bar is the best.  I love their tofu.




I was SO excited that they had brussels sprouts on the hot food bar.  They are one of my absolute favorite foods.  I spent a little time reading Game of Thrones (book 2), then I headed to my doctor.  I am not really going to get into it that much, but suffice it to say that an issue I have been having is worse that I had thought, and it looks like I'm slated for some MINOR surgery next week.  Since I'm a big baby, this sent me into a bit of a spiral for the rest of the day.  I was emotional, so I just went home.  Luckily, my vegan cuts box had just arrived.  I took this as a good time to break my diet.

Here's what's inside.  I will try to write something up when I eat each of these.













I have really been wanting to try this Beyond Meat.  I saw it at Whole Foods the other day, and I almost picked some up.  I have a weird feeling about meat like products.  I'm not even a huge fan of seitan because of the texture.  I will try it though, eventually.  

Last weekend we picked up some plastic chairs for the garden, so I figured this was the perfect opportunity to take a snack and head out there to read and calm down a little.




After Josh got home, we sat in the den and read for quite awhile.  At around 8:30 we decided to venture out for food and some cheering up, and we found ourselves at American Pie in North Little Rock.  Apparently, it was trivia night, so the place was packed.  I couldn't decided what I wanted, but eventually I settled on some beer and a salad.  This really didn't go over too well though, and I just ended up picking the walnuts and olives out and eating them and only drinking half my beer.



Our final stop for the night was Kroger for some ice cream.  We picked up these treats, and they were SOOO good.  Definitely a good end to the night.  I didn't count carbs or calories today, but it was a long day, and I'm feeling better today.


Just to re-iterate, everything health wise is fine.  I will be MIA for a few days next week, but maybe I'll have something to blog about as a vegan in the hospital.  I'm not really looking forward to it, though.  Anyway, no matter all the diet breaking, I'm still down another pound, so things are moving in the right direction.  I need to focus and keep going.
