It’s been 3 months since I’ve eaten meat! Whoohoo! Everything has been going well, but lately I’ve been super busy and I haven’t had time to cook. Now I realize that being a vegetarian has its flaws.
Before, if I was too busy to cook, I would just swing by the nearest “fast food” spot, but that is no longer the case, and I find it harder to find good, quick, affordable vegetarian fast food on a whim. So, I’ve been bored with my food options, and when I’m bored, I eat junk (chips, dip, cake, cookies, etc.). I will admit that there are more options for those who don’t mind eating soy based products, but as a cancer survivor, I have limits for the amount of soy I should eat.
I chose the Pesco-Vegetarian lifestyle because of the seafood options, but I’ve been hesitant to eat too much seafood because of mercury and water pollution issues.
So, if I don’t cook, I’m kinda stuck, and I find myself looking at those old “fast food” favorites with lust in my eyes. I need a new plan for those hectic and busy days.
Now do you see why I’m bored?
