Today we went to a dinner party at the Wandering Horse Buffet. I was questioning whether or not I had the willpower to stick to my new vegan diet around so much tempting food, but I am happy to say that “I Survived the Casino Buffet”. Thankfully they had a salad bar and a couple vegetable dishes so I was able to eat without feeling deprived.
Well, truthfully I did feel slightly deprived but not as much as I thought I would. The only thing I really missed was trying all the desserts. To make up for it I made my boyfriend try them all for me – I may have slightly drooled while I watched him eat everything, but hey it’s only been 3 weeks since I started this diet so I’m allowed.
The thing I’m most happy about though is that I didn’t leave feeling sick and holding my belly, which is usually what happens every time I go to a buffet. I still managed to eat 3 plates of food, but eating 3 plates of fruit and veggies is way different than eating 3 plates of meat, seafood and creamy desserts. The thought of that doesn’t even sound good to me right now. I guess that’s a step in the right direction.
