My typical morning routine is; take my thyroid medicine (I have to take it 30 min before eating), run the dogs and get ready for work. I typically make a smoothie for breakfast consisting of: coconut milk, plant based protein powder (in bulk at Ozark Natural Foods), frozen bananas and another type of fruit. I used to love adding raw kale from friends at Rocky Comfort Natural Farm to my smoothies but found out that cruciferous vegetables, such as kale, are considered goitrogenic foods and that people with thyroid problems should cook their cruciferous veggies before partaking.

One of my new guilty vegan pleasures is indulging in vegan indian tacos at Kind Kitchen, who just so happens to be outside of my office window. It is actually pretty horrible because I can SEE people eating the vegan cupcakes from outside of my window and my will power is only so strong..
Last night, I dreamt of ordering a cold brew and the barista insisting on put half and half in the coffee. This dream proceeded the dream of a piping hot breakfast sandwich with stringy cheese, eggs and bacon. It is funny because I haven't had bacon in a good month! Time will tell if the vegan lifestyle is right for my body.
Any other vegans out there have "forbidden" food dreams when first becoming vegan?
