greens and reds

Soooo... I guess I'm a vegetarian. When I was home for Thanksgiving I thought about it and decided to give it a try. So on December 5th I stopped eating meat.

Let's face it, when you're a single guy you don't do a lot of cooking. Even if you like cooking, which I do. So over the past few months I've done more than my fair share of eating out. Weight gain ensued. Money was spent unnecessarily. How do I get myself to stop eating out so much? Well, since most of my fast food and restaurant choices contained meat, I would stop eating meat.

So I stopped eating meat. Et voila, I don't eat out as much. Problem solved-ish.

I certainly don't plan on going the rest of my life without eating meat. Or even the rest of this year. Originally my plan was to make it to June but right now I'm thinking of March. We'll see.

I really don't feel like a vegetarian though (not that I would what it's like to feel like one). To be a true vegetarian I feel like I should subscribe to a higher ideal or something, like opposing the killing of animals and such. But really I'm just trying to break bad habits. So if I don't eat meat I guess that makes me a vegetarian?


  1. There there, Thome, don't worry. I'll be back soon.

  2. I think you're doing great, Michael Lewis. You keep doing what you're doing...until March, that is.

  3. i started getting veggie bowls occasionally when i go to chipotle, just because they add guacamole to if for free. i get protein in the beans so i don't miss the meat too much, but i feel a little off saying vegetarian because i'm not. i wish they called it the guacbowl

  4. Yeah, I think I'd be a bit more inclined to get it if it were called the guacbowl.
