Lunch - Hummus, pita bred, harissa, and cucumber.
Yesterday someone important to me was critical of my vegan eating. I’m still quite upset, and when I’m upset I want to restrict. This isn’t a good lunch, but it’s an example of forcing myself to eat when I don’t want to. Hummus and pita bread are both fear foods for me, so it is a great step that I managed to eat them on a bad day.
You might also be interested to check out a new page on my blog: The Case for Veganism, which I have started to save all of the reasons that I am vegan. I really believe that a vegan diet is more environmentally friendly, sustainable, and kinder to animals and humans. I am afraid of milk, and I am afraid of meat, but that is NOT the reason I choose not to eat them. I am also afraid of hummus, yet I eat it at least three times a week, I am afraid of avocados, yet I eat them twice a week. My point is, while for some people veganism might be a veil for an eating disorder, it is not for me.
