A-yup. I went the whole 40 days without meat, eggs, or dairy- except
for Sundays as Niccolo noted. Going out to eat was a pain, and there
was plenty of time here at home that I couldn't stand the though of
more fish so I went with a bowl of brown rice and some veggies.
Yesterday's brunch with a slab o' Ham and eggs and milk in my tea... ahh.
I think I would not make a good vegan. Ovo-lacto vegetarian, maybe.
But me likey cheeze too much! I can has cheeeezeee!
