Everyday at work I get a rash of crap for my vegan lunch. It includes a Boca Burger (or black bean burger), a small bag of pretzels and an apple. I eat it everyday and I love it, simple, not too filling and I am an energetic powerhouse after lunch instead of slow and sluggish.

By no means have we jumped on the vegan ship completely. We are what I like to call “Hybrid Vegans”.  We eat meat on occasion, more like a treat than a three times a day occurrence.  I still have to throw-down a massive turkey on Thanksgiving and a giant ham on Easter!  We also indulge when we go out to eat or go to a friends house.  I would say we went from eating meat 2-3 times a day to maybe eating it 2-3 times a month.

Yes that includes all dairy products as well!  However, as I stated above, we are “Hybrid Vegans”.  We have the occasional dairy filled cupcake here and there or splurge on a pizza every once in a while.

Regardless of our dietary decision I hear things like, “How do you get enough protein to sustain muscle mass?”.  My response, “Look at the gorilla!  That is one big-ass vegan!”
