Not strange at all :) food is a pretty big deal to most of us and sometimes some of us need a "parting ceremony" of sorts. I personally made a gradual change and had a lot of small "last this" and "last that" before going vegan.
Totally normal whenever one makes dietary changes...remember to be curious about what comes up for you and wonder about the source. If you have a craving for a non-vegan food over time, what is it related to? Is there a loss connected to it or a celebration? Just something to consider...be good to yourself:)
Its not crazy at all. I have had alot of "last suppers" over the years. as a matter of fact I had another one yesterday, well breakfast that is. I love sweets, shipleys donuts, cookies etc which is why I have never made a full commitment to being vegan. It was just to hard going to functions where deserts were at, cakes a party's (I just love red velvet cake.) but that all changed yesterday.
I finally saw Food Inc and I tried to watch earthlings but couldnt get past the trailer of the film. I was in tears in about 10 seconds and that is all it took. i wanted to watch it, but just couldnt. but that 10 seconds were enough. Its vegan all the way for me now. I even didnt eat ice cream when everyone else did in my family. it was my husbands birthday.
sorry for all the ranting. but congradulations on your journey into veganism and dont feel bad if you slip and fail along the way, just have another last supper and tomorrow will be a better day :-)
Congrats on taking the leap & going vegan! It will be one of the best decisions of your life. As for the "last supper" deal, not strange at all. I never really did and last supper for meat and haven't had it in years, but when I decided to go full-on vegan, I had to make peace with the fact that I was parting ways with cheese. I used to be the biggest cheese-a-holic vegetarian! I'll never forget my "last supper" of a big salad covered in feta cheese. Over a year later now, I don't even think of cheese much anymore and I eat so many different delicious foods that it doesn't even matter. Sometimes we have to make peace of letting go of something negative before we can move on to something more positive.
