  • Dinner: Breaking Vegan with a meal at Johnny Mantattan’s. This was a dinner with friends that was planned prior to deciding on this experiment. That being said, I didn’t have steak. After sharing some truffle fries with the table, I had a cup of the crab and mushroom soup followed by the special strawberry salad, sans goat cheese, and the Trout Almondine for my main entree. It was all delicious, but super rich, and I only was able to finish about 4 bites of my dinner before asking for a to-go box. Can’t wait to go back, as everything was amazing, including the staff and decor.

  • Thoughts: The end of week 3. I have some great new recipes and combination, but I have found myself missing a few things that the omnivore diet has to offer. For example, on Monday I made some delicious looking skin-on chicken thighs for the rest of the family, and while I was easily able to take a pass on the meat itself, I really, really, REALLY wanted to tear into the crispy seasoned skin on top. Like, really bad. I resisted, but just barely.

Now, onto week 4!
