Day 4 - Eliminate Red Meat

Speak, Sarah the Oracle.  We are listening.

"You've committed to going vegan, and today is the day that you will take the first major step toward becoming vegan. Starting today, you will eliminate all red meat from your diet and your kitchen. As you know, vegans don't eat meat, poultry, fish, dairy products or eggs, and you will be eliminating one of these items every four days until the end of the 30-day program."
Sarah Taylor. Vegan in 30 Days: Get Healthy. Save the World. (Kindle Locations 172-174). Kindle Edition.

Sarah goes on to tell us to empty our cupboards and fridge of all red meat (this includes all flesh meat that isn't fish or fowl, by the way) and give it to the local food bank.

Easy Cheesy.  Winner Winner Tofurky Dinner. 

I don't buy much red meat - or pork, which as we all know, is the 'other white meat' - so no big challenge for Teener here.  I ended up with a half a package of roast beef lunch meat; a can of chili; a can of Chunky soup; and a couple cans of ravioli.    And since, at any given time, I'm about $200 away from being a food bank CLIENT, I'm not actually giving this stuff away.  I will instead feed it to my child. 

It's okay, he's not a blogger.

So, another day in the can.  We are doing well, don't you think?  Tomorrow we are "finding substitutes."

Until then, sleep well and dream of happy cows and pigs living very long, unslaughtered lives.

  1. I can do w/o the turkey/chicken/pork, but I LOVE me a good hamburger!

    I've decided to basically just quit eating. Last nite's dindin was: A scoop of canned )not even fresh!!) greens, 1/2 of a pear, and a mini-cornbread muffin thing (not even the sweet kind!). Later I had a PB&J and a necterine.

    William's Mom cooked Salmon Patties and I don't like those. Ew.
