Did you read that crazy woman's post last week? OMG! Some female blogger saying she was going to do a 21 day cleanse food regime. Don't know her all that well, but having read a few of her posts I know she is a little strange. She had the gall to try and enlist others to join her in this wild endeavor, as well. Then before she even tried the regime, she posted a couple of lame recipes for others who might be so inclined, and then just disappeared into the vapors of her eternally simmering soups. She even posted some drivel about oatmeal steaks! Well, I for one, did not take the bait or buy into her vegan schemes.
Doesn't she know how abysmally difficult it is to deprive oneself of caffeine, animal proteins, sugar, wheat and alcohol all at the same time? Has she never heard of the word 'withdrawal'? Does she not live with other normal people who will continue to eat, relish and enjoy all these things right in front of her? Does she not realize that while caught in the throes of withdrawal, after having had wheat and sugar probably every day of her life, that she will not be able to shop, plan a meal, recall a recipe, think straight, find the kitchen, or make sense of this new language called 'Veganese'? Did she really think she could continue her normal activities, be of service, be courteous, when all she really wants to do is grab a ciabatta smothered in butter and shove it in her mouth? What part of her brain is malfunctioning to such an extreme that she could get caught in such a plan? I bet in her desperation she has probably resorted to eating Cape Cod cholesterol free potato chips (no caffeine, no sugar, no animal protein, no wheat and no alcohol!!!) while hiding under the island in her kitchen!
If you know this wacky woman do steer clear of her - because I bet she is not fit company for anyone right now. From what I know of her she is somewhat lacking in impulse control, has little ability to delay gratification, and could possibly become violent if you step between her and what she really, really wants. I have not seen any posts from the people who entertained doing the 21 day cleanse with her. I hope they are fairing better than I imagine she is. Frankly, I think she asked for whatever sacrifices and suffering that ensued and she better not start whining about it on her blog - because nobody is going to want to hear it. She set her table now let her sit at it!
