14 DAYS DOWN, 26 MORE TO GO

Today for lunch, I ordered a Whopper with cheese, hold the meat. I told the kid taking my order that "I have a stupid request" and that "I lost a bet and can't eat meat for a month." Somehow lying was easier than admitting that I had given up meat voluntarily for Lent. The kid behind the register laughed. Really hard. He turned away and doubled over. I guess you really can "have it your way," but it doesn't absolve you from ridicule.

I put french fries on the Whopper. It tasted vaguely Whopper-like, but only vaguely.

Try Teriyaki Vegan Jerky by Primal Strips It's really good.

You should celebrate making it all the way with one of these steak toasters. http://gizmodo.com/358671/a-steak-toaster-did-you-hear-me-i-said-a-steak-toaster

Whatever Jill! It's sort of like quitting smoking...a royal pain in the ass at first but then it's okay. Sorry, didn't mean to snap at you like that. It's the protein withdrawls.

Philly - That steak toaster, while completely absurd, is also completely awesome.
