The Vegan Eats a Chicken

I hesitated writing this post. I don’t like to make statements like “I’m a vegan now” and then within 45 days of my “new lifestyle choice” eat an entire rotisserie chicken with my bare hands while standing over the kitchen sink. But I did. So here we are. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy being…

Burn Baby, Burn

Sometimes it’s not the pain you are experiencing that is so troubling, it’s not knowing what is causing the pain. For two weeks now, my face has been red, peeling, and in extreme pain. On that stupid pain scale they show you at the Emergency Room, it would be a constant 9. Being in relentless…

Not What I Expected

I have officially been vegan for five days. It has been….not what I expected. -I haven’t shaved my legs in several days so now I am a hairy-legged vegan. Typical. I am still wearing Secret chemical-infused deodorant though, so I don’t think I’ve gone too far to the dark side. Also, I still refuse to shop at Whole…
