Carbon-free Friday

My Friday will not be carbon-free.  I must go to work and do many other things that increase my carbon footprint.  However:

  • I will not eat meat
  • I will not buy anything
  • I will go to bed when the sun sets.

Perhaps you will join me.  Now I must leave.  It is time to ravage my vegetable brethren.

Vegan Today 4

I have been enjoying a most clement summer in the Sierra of late and consequently have not been pounding a keyboard.  My deepest apologies.  

This blog is now enforcing a 15 minute / day posting policy to encourage more frequent posts.  The format for vegan today data is now streamlined, thusly:

Day 001    2013 07 13    BMI 27.3 kg/m^2    Blood Glucose (14 day avg.)  135 mg/dl
Day 029    2013 07 13    BMI 26.2 kg/m^2    Blood Glucose (14 day avg.)  115 mg/dl

Thanks to all who like.

Some FAQs for you:

What is the connection between geology and a vegan diet?

Geology informs my concern about the possibility of a sixth mass extinction due to global warming, while converting to a vegetarian diet is the most effective simple action to stop a growing human carbon footprint.

How vegan are you?

If I were already completely vegan this would be an especially boring series of blog posts.   I am a flexible vegetarian – during the past week I have consumed 1 L of yogurt, 250  ml of milk, 500 g of cheese, 8 homegrown eggs, and 100 g of diced chicken.

Why the numbers?

Those are my numbers for weight and blood sugar.  If they continue to improve perhaps other members of the hyper-adipose societies of North America may join this project for themselves.  

Why is the bridge waiting?
