It's been 14 days since I had a shred of meat.
I had been feeling really bummed about not taking advantage of the yummy, fresh summer produce this year because my work schedule conflicts with market hours, so I decided that I would force myself to eat only vegetables in the hopes that this would push me to make an effort to find different ways of enjoying them.
Now, I'm not a shabby cook, but I have to say, cooking vegetarian takes up a lot of time and calls for a lot more creativity to put together satisfying dishes. I'm used to having meat as the main part of the meal and vegetables as a side, you see. That's just how I've eaten my whole life. So this "going all vegetarian" is really like delving into uncharted territory for me.
And yes, it's very time-consuming. But yes, it's a lot of fun. And by gollies, it's ridiculously delicious.
