Okay, there must be something to this. My ex is a vegan, Bill Clinton is a vegan, Ellen is a vegan and now Russell Simmons too?? Alright ya’ll, I’m trying to give up my plantation ways and get off the meat-go-round. But how do I give up chocolate? I need my See’s candy, Nuts & Chews every once in awhile. I won’t go cold turkey. I’ve tried that, just to return to eating meat with a vengeance all the more the following day or week. What I will do is give it up, a little at a time, item by item. I will experiment and switch out stuff from my pantry. I will give myself until my birthday in April. It’s a big one too, so I want to see how I look and feel then. (Sucking my teeth, with a stank eye twist) Alright, let’s get started. Psst, I can still eat fried pickles though, right??
