I think I've become protein deficient. The realisation dawned when I ate some canned tuna this evening, and it didn't just taste good, it actually made love to my palate. While I do like tinned tuna, I'm not in the habit of using that description in relation to food, particularly not canned food.

In case you are wondering how I got into this situation, I suspect that it is due to the fact that I can't remember how many days before today it's been since I had a proper meal - some two or three. As I am essentially vegan (I find animal products both expensive and inconvenient, although often toothsome. I also find that they can sometimes make me slightly unwell.) in diet, this is probably not a good thing.
