Left on my own in a home full of meat and dairy products, while my wife and her parents were away for the weekend, I figured it might be tough starting down my path to vegetarianism. Not so much.
I scored by finding some Soyrizo and leftover potatoes. Since eggs are not on my list of forbidden foods I enjoyed another yummy meal on my first day as a vegetarian. And since I’m used to eating salads for dinner a few days a week anyway, today was no different than any other…
Except for the fact that when I grabbed a Summer Sausage while rooting through the fridge for some cheese, I put it back with a grin instead of cutting off a big hunk to eat with my salad.
Score one for the vegetarian.

If you are vegetarian, do you recall your last meat meal? Was it memorable, or a mistake?
I didn’t want my last meat to a mess of nachos I made with some leftover short ribs, refried beans and mounds of cheese that didn’t quite agree with me. I also didn’t want the premium popcorn chicken from Schwans that I had in the freezer to go to waste.
Knowing it would be the last meat I choose to eat for at least the next 24 weeks, I made myself a scrumptious sweet and sour sauce chicken dish and a huge plate of baby bok choy lightly braised with a dash of soy sauce, sesame oil and loads of garlic.
Satisfied, and feeling good, I enjoyed my last supper knowing that there are plenty of yummy meals yet to be enjoyed, without the meat.
