I'm omni for a week. Yes, I know, this upsets some of my noble readers. I appreciate your angst. But here's the problem: I've been tired for quite a while. At first I chalked it up to inadequate B12. I doubled my intake, then changed brands. Then I decided it was grad school, then the end of grad school, and moving, and taking on too much work and attending to too many details. So, I figured it would get better with some rest. I moved. Then I got to slow down and sleep more. No change. More walking, every day. I added a multi-vitamin to my intake. No improvement. I went to the doctor for an annual exam, all my numbers (blood sugar, cholesterol, etc etc) were fine. This past week, I started craving meat. Thinking about it, mouth watering when I thought about how it would taste.  So, I wonder if four months of veganism haven't done something; but I suppose I'll know in a few days...

No rotten produce coming from this end of Virginia! That makes sense to me. I hope you figure it out and get your energy back . . . but I also hope you don't have to sacrifice your vegan experience in the long run!

    "The Year of the Vegan" is a diary of my challenges and triumphs during 2010 - a year in which I will not consume any animal products. This commitment is motivated by my disgust about the hidden and externalized environmental, social and societal  costs of our nation's food network. Join me considering what we eat, and why.

    This year is also a year of personal transitions - from graduate student and freelance writer living in rural southwestern Virginia to fully-employed DC resident.
