I enjoyed the vegetarian experience. It was fun. I liked the meatless recipe books I discovered at the library. I am still finding new books with cool dishes to try. I learned that I do like hummus, not all vegan meat substitutes are gross (but some are), and I still dislike tofu (but I am willing to try a different brands and types in the future). I haven’t decided if I’m going to remain vegetarian in the coming days or not. It’s become a struggle. Tomorrow won’t be different then the past month, I am not going to run out and order Wendy’s Baconator at 12:00:01. I am expecting most of my meals will continue to be meatless but I haven’t decided if all will. I still really *miss* having meat in my diet. There are also other food issues I am finding I am more passionate about like eating locally grown foods. Well, my tummy is growling I am off to make pasta.
Final thought AJ’s warning about needing to find a variety of favorite dishes was 100% true. Anytime I was in a rush, lazy, or behind on making my menu plan I had pasta with a veggie sauce. Over a longer period of time I would hate my favorite food.
Good-bye Veggie Month
