Hello world!

17 Mar

I guess I can’t really call myself a virgin…I’ve been a vegetarian for about 7 years now.  I’m still learning the right way to eat. I know I should eat healthier, instead I opt for the easy, quick items which I know aren’t good for me. They don’t have meat in them, but that doesn’t make them healthy. I don’t eat the burgers that the fast food places serve, however I still manage to go through a drive-thru every few days. Jack in the Box serves a great breakfast sandwich on a croissant; omit the meat and yummmm. I don’t even want to know how many fat grams or calories are in that little number.

My grown, carnivorous daughter lives at home and when we’re out shopping always seems to get a hankering for Mickey D’s. They are not so veggie friendly, so mostly I get fries and soda; now there’s a healthy lunch. Sometimes I’m good and I get a salad, but those days are few.

I’m still learning. When I cook, I’m cooking mainly for myself because my daughter hates a lot of what I eat. She won’t try tofu or tempeh, hates zucchini and eggplant. I use those items a lot. She’s 28, so I figure if she wants to eat meat, she can cook it herself.

Like I said, I’m still learning; how to cook healthy vegetarian meals for one, as well as some things that even a picky carnivore may enjoy.
