It has been a bit of a hiatus, but I am back. Overall, I do believe that I Have been doing tremendous (if I may say so) in eating clean & vegan, but I STILL have those nasty cravings!
When I chose & I am cooking or ordering from a menu, I chose healthy vegan every time (well 99.9% of the time). It is when I am out & I have the temptation of something sweet (& likely not vegan) that I struggle.
I WANT to eat clean & I DO EAT CLEAN practically all of the time, but I know that the sweet choice will taste so yummy!
THAT is the problem.
I even thought of this while in Adoration this evening at church. It is like when one goes to Confession, confesses one’s sins but still has the attraction to the sin. The “craving” is still there. It is here, where the the hidden struggle really happens.
I know that heading a healthy vegan meal, snack or whatever is critical to good health, yet I know that those Oreos taste soooo good & I will enjoy eating them (at least while I am eating them that is).
I know that I will feel guilty if I chose what I know is not the better choice yet I often still choose it.
Deep down inside, I KNOW that if I can fight this “devil” on my shoulder & listen to the Angel on my other shoulder, that I will be much better off.
I also understand that if I can “push through” this temptation, that ultimately, my taste buds will change & the cravings will fade into oblivion.
Is this true?
I’d love to hear your comments.
