I have this problem, and it’s called Chinese food.
I failed at being a vegetarian by Tuesday at lunch. Two of my friends said Chinese and I could not object. I was starving and I love Chinese food. I did think going in that it wouldn’t be so hard to just stick to the vegetables and keep up my week-long vegetarianism goal.
Um yeah, right. General Tso’s, here I come.
I rebounded at dinner with a tomato/mozzarella wrap, but was still feeling a bit guilty about my slip up. I’m planning on soup and salad for lunch today and roasted veggies tonight. So yeah, basically, I suck at being a vegetarian. I can’t do it. I think it proves though that everything in moderation is the best way to go.
I will eat mostly non meat foods throughout the week, but I need it every once in a while.
The rest of the week’s veggie menus are as follows.
B — Oatmeal and a banana
L– Butternut squash soup and apple-spinach salad
D– Roasted vegetables
B– Eggs and warm apples with cinnamon
L — Repeat of the soup and salad; almonds or popcorn for a snack
D — Eggplant parmesan
L — Eggplant parmesan leftovers
D– Tomato/mozzarella/pesto wrap; warm apples with cinnamon
L — Boca burger or tomato/mozz/pesto wrap and soup
D — Probably more eggplant parm leftovers (It’s tough cooking for one person sometimes; I have leftovers for days)
