I have a quart of kefir, a dozen eggs, and a block of cheddar in front of me that mark the ending of about three months of being vegan. I suspect that my digestive system will not be happy about the shift back, but hopefully it will only take a few days to get back to normal.

Why? I'm tired of thinking so much about what I'm going to eat. It's too stressful, and this is a point in my life at which I cannot devote enough time to it to make it work. I have a very weird appetite, so constraining it too much has caused problems. It had gotten to the point where I was occasionally very hungry, and almost always a little bit hungry, and some experiences over the past few days have really prompted me to acknowledge that I can't tolerate that feeling any more.

The really confusing thing here is that I haven't really missed the taste of any of the things I had stopped eating. The problem isn't vegan food, it's living in an aggressively nonvegan culture. I just miss being able to go into a restaurant or a cafe or a grocery store and quickly identify something, anything, that I can eat.

Okay, that's not quite true. I miss good pizza. Goodness gracious, I miss good pizza. As soon as I can verify that I can keep cheese down, I'm going to get some pizza.
