Vegan MOFO has begun!

Here we go.  It's the first day of the 2012 Vegan Month of Food.  I still am not quite sure what I will be making tonight for dinner.  But, in addition to celebrating the VeganMoFo, I am also quitting Diet Coke for a month starting today.  I don't know if I'll make it through the month without succumbing to the wiles of DC, but I will certain give it all I've got.  I want to know if it would make a great difference in my weight loss if I gave it up.  I have had several people say that it will indeed.  So, I'm giving Diet Coke the old heave ho.  I will do anything to feel better.  Of course, one reason I'm feeling fairly good today is I had corstisone shots in my knees last Thursday.  It takes a few days but now I'm walking quite well and feel good.  Hopefully, I can do some water aerobics this evening after a nice dinner.

Wow.  Feels like a lot of changes on the way.  Not really, but it seems like it.  Amy and I considered Potato and Leek Soup, because we have a bag of the vegetables in our fridge.  I suppose we could do that.  It's cool enough for soup, and I think it would be tasty.  I could stop by Food Lion and get a Pan Bigio bread loaf to go with it.  Maybe I can get Brian to start it before I come home.  I don't see why he couldn't do that.  We could add some beans for extra protein.  I think I might be the only person who doesn't worry about where we're going to get protein.  I think we eat quite a bit of protein, actually.

Update: I'm staying home this evening, but I definitely still feel good.  And the shepherd's pie we made really hit the spot.
