Well, my week of the sort of cam's challenge is over. I say sort of because 'fumes actually wanted us to go vegan for the week. Like I said from the start, I was not up for that and went vegetarian for the week instead. My wife thought it was a cool idea and joined in. If you read the other post you know that we had a dinner party on wendsday and both of us had a little pork sausage and chicken. So we did not make the week meat free, but we came close. My wife said since we slipped that day we ought to tack on one more. I was up for that, so we went from sunday evening until dinner yesterday. I tried some new foods; like soy milk and bocaburgers (I'd only had a bite in the past.) I ate a lot more veggies and nuts than normal. I was surprised at how much I wanted meat by the end of the week. Yesterday, at dinner my wife and I mutually declared the challenge over. What I really wanted was roast suckling pig. The closest I could find was some pulled pork BBQ. It was great! Looking back on the week I've got to say it was an interesting experiment. I think the biggest change was thinking before I ate something. 'fumes great idea, even though I did not fully accept it. cam, that is quite a lifestyle you have there.
