What I've noticed with not eating animal products, I believe it's been a few days now, that the heaviness isn't there to make me feel that full feeling you get. I'm not necessarily hungry just not 100% satisfied either. We shared our dinners but left some to bring home, had vegetarian egg rolls and enough hot tea to send me to the restroom several times so it's not as if I didn't get enough. I know my body needs to adjust to not filling it with food that it must work incredibly hard to adjust so for now I'll just wait and make sure I have healthy snacks around the house. I'm thinking hummus will be plentiful around here.
Tomorrow nights dinner was planned to be braised beef, it's in the freezer so we decided to make it to get rid of it. Looking across the table this evening we both decided that it just does not sound appetizing at all. We will leave it in our freezer for another time. I think I may make something up with the red quinoa I bought from Whole foods instead. Sounds plenty appetizing and exciting to make up something different and new.
