@splendorhub Last Vegan Post.jpg

I can't believe this is my last post for the Eat Like a Superstar Vegan Challenge. Today I'd like to share with all of you the awesome meals I had, and how I almost risked it all.

The reason I wanted to participate for the challenge was simple. I had read and done plenty of research to know I wanted to give the vegan diet a chance, for about a year.

How hard is it to give up cheese, pies, hard boil eggs on a daily for a snack. Very hard. Had it not been for @heart-heart for this creative contest, let's just say I would had still been thinking about the vegan diet.

When you see the struggle ahead...

I love my comfort foods! All of them donuts, pies, cupcakes, milk, blue cheese, sharp cheddar.

I think I've made my point. Knowing that I had to come up with easy and tasty food replacements to guaranteed my success.

The first week was a challenge been behind on my meal prepping and fruit and veggies not ripen made me second guess my decision.

The following week would had to be different, I bought more groceries and veggies with anticipation.

Week two

started really good! I had done plenty of vegan recipes searches and was ready to start having some fun :)

Week three!

I cook as often as I can. I prefer homemade for sure! Going out is nice too, but when is date night, trying new places is more fun.

Living in Southern Orange County is a great place to be if you're vegan I came to realize. Most places have at least one vegan option on their menu. Lucky me !

I'm feeling good...really good !

Into to my fourth week it was confirmed that my energy and mood had changed. It was clear after forgetting to drink my coffee twice! I love my coffee and having it in the morning makes the day brighter! I still drink it, but I'm at the point were I don't need it.

Week four....the cravings ...

During the final stretch of the challenge I was craving pie! Yes ... blueberry double crusted pie. High calorie treats was all I was thinking about. That's when I started to maximize the flexibility of the sweet potato.

My meals for this week were delicious. It was also this week that I wasn't sure I was ready to go back.

Day 21 and 22
Here I made tofu fried chicken with a side rice, corn and kimchi.

On the last day of the challenge it was moms birthday dinner. To my surprise they have veggie mole enchiladas. IMG_6403.JPG

A side of rice and black beans.

Not a bad way to end the challenge!

In summary,

This has been the best decision I've made this year. I have proved myself the strength of my will power. There's nothing to do it but to do it! During this challenge I missed several things, but at the end my energy was better and so was my mental clarity.

I feel great! I have decided to keep up my vegan diet for as long as I can. Being around meat eaters can be tough. Thank you all that follow me during my challenge. If you want a challenge for a greater you, this is the one. 22 Day Vegan Challenge.

@splendorhub I am proud of you. It is difficult to stick with anything if you don't give it at least 90 days straight. Also if you will go back into your post to Week four and make sure TREATS is spelled correctly. I like Treats too................

@splendorhub That's awesome you have mental clarity from this diet. Keeping a high protein may help the cravings. It helps for me at least. Have you tried any protein shakes?

Ice-Cream is my comfort food, also Oatmeal. Rice is great. Did you drink all of that tea in that big cup? Good work with the finish-line.
