Living as a Vegetarian

I started living as a vegetarian on Monday with my two group members Austin and Amber. So far I have learned a lot about the choices I make about the food I eat as an individual and how hard it is to be on a university campus and make vegetarian choices. Going into the dining hall today literally made me cringe because I feel like I can NEVER find multiple things that would satisfy this diet choice. I’ve never been a huge eater of beans or peanuts but in order to keep my protein levels up, I have started to eat those food items a lot. Strange Fact of the Day: Jell-O has meat in it, actually most gelatin does! Can you say nasty?!?!

I’m so proud of you all for trying this! I’m still trying to do it with you all, but today was tough….I had cereal for lunch and I wanted a big chicken sandwich with lettuce and mayo…ok, I’ll stop. I have been looking into salads and that really sounds pretty good right now….esp if it had some chicken in it. Oh geez, not chicken again. ha

veggin’ it,
Baldwin
