|I know. I'm excited too, boys!|
As I was saying. So today is May 1st. I've decided, with the help of Heather, to try a little experiment. I've been considering, for a while, trying a vegetarian diet to see what that does with my health. Not that my health is bad, but I know several people who have switched to vegetarian or mostly vegetarian diets who have experienced some benefits in the realm of weightloss, etc. But my problem is that I am 99% certain that I would not be able to be a vegetarian.
I *like* meat and I don't have any moral qualms about eating something that was alive and had a face. So there's really nothing keeping me from eating meat if I get the urge. And I would get the urge.
So rather than trying to go whole hog vegetarian I'm trying a month of having one 'vegetarian' meal a day. The easiest meal for me to do that with is lunch, so there you go.
I say 'vegetarian' in quotes because there's some debate over what counts as meat. Mostly what I mean by that is that Heather says eggs count and I say they don't. I'm going to do my best to avoid having the egg in my salad, but I'm not going to rule it out entirely since I think I'll get sick of nuts and beans. Or, in this case, not have any ready because I am a slacker. So today there's a chopped up hard boiled egg in my salad.
We'll see how this goes.
ETA: Note: Salads without meat = less than satisfying and delicious. Just for the record.
