As Saturday gets ever closer, I’m having my last couple of animal-protein meals. I have cut down already on fats, sugars, simple carbs and red meats for the last two weeks so I don’t feel the pain as much.

My wonderful friends, colleagues and tweeps have been helping me get the word out, and I’m feeling energized. I really appreciate everyone’s help.

I’m excited to see what the great folks at @madebymany put together for the larger project site (http://5050.gd) and for the donations system.

Today: sesame chicken & carrot wok with a teeny bit of soy sauce and three tablespoons of rice.

Please help me continue to spread the word, and get your pocketbooks ready please!
