It seems that since I have determined in myself to lose this extra fat girl that I’ve been carrying around, food has been on my mind almost 24/7 (except when sleeping and even then I dream about food sometimes). Fortunately, this preoccupation with food has been in a good way.
I have been searching websites for recipes that are non-dairy/non-meat recipes. Because it closely resembles the Vegan way of eating, I have been searching Vegan recipes as well (although, I would not consider myself a Vegan–not even a vegetarian even though I will not be eating meat). I am not saying that I will never eat meat. My plan is to greatly reduce the amount of meat that I eat to nearly none (excluding fish/seafood), with an occasional meal including meat (my hope is to find locally raised meat with no history of abuse).
I’m not going all crazy on either point, but I am making strides in a direction that will improve the quality of food that comes into our home and into our body, while not contributing to the commercial misuse and abuse of animals. I know my family won’t change the world by abstaining from meat produced in such commercial businesses, but I will at least know that we aren’t contributing to such mistreatment.
I thought I would share with you a really COOL Vegan dish. Vegans don’t eat eggs, so creating a vegan “fried egg” was really interesting to me. Check this out! Really cool, and slightly scientific. Enjoy!
