on going meatless.

about two months ago i decided to experiment with going meatless. it's gone pretty well. i haven't noticed a huge change in my body, but the fact that i'm not eating it has made me feel less guilty about all the bad things meat can do to the body. (please note i have slipped up 7 times in the past two months, not too shabby) my biggest fear was that i'd become a "carb loader" and just gorge myself on pasta. that would not be ideal. but instead i've embraced delicious treats like tempeh, tofurkey dogs and even tofu now that i know how to use it!



do you eat meat? are you a vegetarian? have any good recipes to share? here's one i've been using a lot.

i'm a veg gal, and have been for several years now. (was for a hundred years in my past, but fell off the wagon once at a burger king. . . don't ask.).

i actually find that it makes me feel less guilty about having something truly decadent when i want it. "well, it's not like i killed anyone to have this goat cheese tart with truffle oil!"

Be careful! I totally was vegetarian for four years and carb loaded and got so fat. I'm considering the switch again, but I love Bacon so. Yes, I'm capitalising Bacon because that's how much I love it.
