40 Days and 40 Nights

Fat Tuesday is over. I’m one sad girl. I didn’t get any beads, but I had one last meal of pasta with parmesan cheese to get me ready for the next 40 days.

 Um, where did Josh Hartnett go?!

I miss him.

 Anywaysss…last year I gave up chocolate and meat. This year:


Honestly, I’m a little nervous. I love cheese and I eat it nearly every day. Cheese and chocolate are pretty much my two main vices. It’s gonna be hard giving up the good stuff.

 It’s been a day, people, and I’m already having a difficult time. But, I came up with an awesome recipe to make me think “cheese? what cheese?” …Sorta.

Meet me new friend:

 Not really new, but the saltiness of the veggie bacon is a good substitute for the saltiness I want from cheese.

Now, meet the A E & B sandwich.

 That’s avocado, hard-boiled egg and veggie bacon piled high on toasted wheat bread. So. Good.

Toast up some bread. Boil up an egg. Fry Microwave some bacon. Slice up some avocado.

 (Yes, I like it burnt!)

  Take that, cheese!

  1. ohhhhh cheese is a hard one to give up if one ever has to! You’re a brave, brave girl….;) And your sandwich sounds delicious!

  2. Good luck lady! You can do it! I gave up cheese for two years in a row. After a while you just get used to it. You miss it, but you don’t need it to have a great dish.

  3. Cheese would be tough! Do you have nutritional yeast? It’s GREAT with eggs and avocado.

    Interestingly enough I neeever eat cheese- if you need any tips let me know! I really don’t miss it actually – not even on pizza (blasphemy) good luck!

    I gave up cheese too! It’s been all of two days and I’ve already got the shakes. Avocados are going to become a heavy hitter in my diet. I’m excited to see what you have to offer over the next 38 days!

  6. Melanie says:

    I CAN’T believe you gave up cheese! I could never. If you haven’t yet checked out the blog Peas and Thank You (which is hilarious and one of my favorites), Mama Pea has a lot of great “cheese” recipes using nutritional yeast, etc. Her “mmm sauce” is heaven!
