Pizza Love Part II

Today's pizza incident turned out to be the most tempting thus far. Rather than an empty pizza box in the trash can, I had to sit through a working team lunch catered by Minsky's.

My heart was crying on the inside as the delivery man dropped off at least six different kinds of pizza. I managed to pillage through the garden salad and make it work, removing all hard-boiled egg and crouton remnants. Lettuce, carrot shreds, cucumber, broccoli, and Italian dressing, yippee! And honestly, I don't really like salad.

Getting through lunch today did give me a bit of a boost (here's some motivation for ya). I realized that I CAN do this, I don't have to give into temptation, it's not as hard as I thought it would be, and it IS getting easier as time goes on. I'm also holding onto the hope that one day I'll completely forget what real cheese tastes like. Although it would be incredibly sad, it would make this process much easier.


  1. Hang in there, Gretchen! You can make your own darn pizza with flavorful sauce and delicious veggies (maybe some cashew cheese, but go easy -- things get weird). And remember less cheese = more room for beer! (Disclaimer: maybe not at work...)

    There are some good videos out on the world wide web of Ellen Degeneres talking about vegan pizza (the cheese dilemma) and making a recipe with Wolfgang Puck.

    Loving the blog!

    1. Thanks for being such a vegan inspiration and cheerleader! I definitely do want to try making my own vegan pizza. This "cashew cheese" you speak of, sounds a bit suspect but I'll try anything once!
