Several weeks ago I was at a get together of women who, when they found out I was vegetarian, asked the question "Then what do you eat?"
Kind of a strange question when there are more types of fruits and vegetables out there than there are varieties of meat.
My 12 year old informed me some time back that I am actually a pescetarian: one who abstains from all meat and animal flesh with the exception of fish.
If you are what you eat, then I am Indian ...
The year before I turned 40, I starting exercising, totally changed my eating habits and lost weight. I had never been much of a meat eater, so when I read this book two years ago, it made me realize that, for many reasons, I didn't want it at all anymore.
Some people worry about getting enough protein but when beans and rice are eaten together, they make a complete protein.
In fact, any of these combinations are complete proteins: nut butter on whole grain bread, pasta with beans, veggie burgers on bread, split pea soup with whole grain bread, and tortillas with refried beans.
I realize it is not for everyone, but it works for me. So, are you hungry yet?
Have a healthy, happy day! Friendship blessings, Tammy
