It is Christmas Eve. I drank a delicious papaya, kale, mango, banana, and agave smoothie for breakfast/lunch after dropping my son off to his friend's house. When I went to pick him up, I was bombarded, once again, by free Cuban food. In the Spanish culture, it is rude to turn down food. But I also felt disrespected by my son's friend's father because he knows I am vegan and just about forced the food down my throat.

Needless to say, I gave in. And it was the worst food ever! It was the type of food I didn't eat even before I became a vegan. He made honey-baked ham, rice and beans, pasteles, and pulled pork with yuca on the side. I ate everything except the yuca and pasteles. The food was delicious, but I know it was bad for me. My body was not used to that sort of food anymore and I immediately became sick and went home. It's difficult to have a social life when you follow a strict eating regimen.

    1. Lol. You are too funny. I have recently started traveling with a cooler in the trunk of my car that I pack with salads and fruits on top of ice. That really helps. Enjoy the blog.
