Vegan

9AM - Not vegan
Until a few days ago, I did not know the difference between a Vegan and a Vegetarian.  I brought up this question with my friend John, and he sent me an email with a link to a story defining these two diets.  A Vegan, is a person who eats nothing that comes from animals.  No cheese, eggs or any animal products.

Do you recall last week when I went to a Vegan restaurant and bought Tofu Chicken?  I actually returned to this restaurant twice before I convinced myself that this Vegan food was not for me.

It turns out that I am not a Vegetarian either.  Although I tried that diet for awhile too.  Instead, as I believe I wrote to you before, I am eating nearly everything, but a lot less of it.  This eating less goal is not easy for me.

For years I have been over-eating.  As a result of over-eating, I rarely had hunger pangs.  Now that I am eating less than 1/2 of what I used to eat, I have hunger pangs a lot.  I like the feeling of having hunger pangs.  But I have to admit to you that they drive me crazy. I am constantly thinking about food.

This morning for breakfast I am making tuna salad. I love to eat tuna salad spread on matzo crackers!
