I cannot say that this second ten days were any easier. I had a few occasions where I ended up at restaurants that had very few meatless options. The salad I had at The Chancery on Day 19 was delicious, but my only options were a salad or pasta. I was really craving some protein.
Things I am missing:
Fish. Friday Fish Fry, tuna sandwiches, fish tacos. Yum.
Ribs. Or at least the option of ribs. I think I am missing having options in general.
The end is in sight! I am very excited to add some meat back into my diet. I'm not a lifer on this. While I think it has helped me be conscious of the amount of meat that I eat, I do plan to add some back into my diet. I will do my best to balance with other protein sources though.
Can't wait for next week....
