Happy Herbivore Day to Me!

Today is my one year anniversary being a vegetarian. It was a year ago today that I read the book “Skinny Bitch” and it changed my life.

I have had missteps, I’ll admit. I calculated that I have eaten meat approximately 20 times in the last year. Beena will say this doesn’t make me a vegetarian. I say it’s a moment of weakness. Bacon is my downfall. It’s a curse. A millstone around my neck and the only thing I truly miss.

So where am I now? I haven’t lost ANY weight, but I feel better internally than I have EVER felt in my life. I eat different vegetable (most of them green) and have an ongoing respect for soybeans. If I ever have a few bucks in my pocket, I’ll invest in soybeans. Not porkbellies. Why would one even think to invest in porkbellies? I’ll have to Google that…

Anyway, I like me a good salad almost as much as you would like a steak.

I now appreciate freshness in my food. Nothing tastes better than fresh, local produce!

I am still falling back on premade veggie burgers, but not nearly as much as I did.

Thank God for Chipotle. And cilantro.

Will I continue on this road paved with spinach and leeks? I think yes. Fall is the best time to be a vegetarian. Pumpkin and squash and apples and root vegetables…to me, that’s comfort food.
