No more herbivore

I am no longer pescatarian. Or vegetarian. Or anything really. I’m an omnivore!

Did the vegetarian thing for 3 months. It got way harder once I came home for the summer and actually had to prepare all my own vegetables and other foods. I fell into constantly eating fruit [good, but lots of sugar & carbs!] and easy grains. Protein came from nut butters, but it was not enough. I didn’t have any veggies either! So sad. I’m still working on that!

So I became pescatarian for a month. Yum yum fish! Who knew I would like seafood?! Although shrimp still gives me the creeps and I can’t stand the texture. (Or even the taste.) So I was getting protein now.

But I just didn’t feel… full.

I never had an issue at school, but eating out at home is really hard. I am not getting the proper fuel I need. Vegetarian, vegan, good for you! I’m jealous.  I honestly would love to go vegan.

Unfortunately, I am lazy. Yes, I am too lazy to go ridiculously out of my way to prepare all the food. I’m just being honest with you guys. It doesn’t help that my whole family & friends are all carnivores. [no excuse, I know.] Also, there are no vegan friendly restaurants in my town at all. [We also have no fro-yo. Not okay.]

So I’ve decided to start eating meat. And it began with this baby:

I love my camera and it’s inability to take close ups.

Turkey, tomato, lettuce, olive oil on ciabatta bread, baked.

My taste buds just about exploded. I am carnivore!

Adam is slightly upset because it means that I can now start stealing bites of his food again. I am already feeling the love.

Speaking of Adam, check out this candid shot my friend got of us during ultimate frisbee last week.


-:  Fitness  :-

Today I did 30min on the elliptical at a moderate pace and did some crunches on an exercise ball. I also swam two laps to cool off!

I wish I could run, but it hurts my knees and doesn’t feel good. I should get back into yoga!

P.S. Yesterday I did weights after church. Yippee!

Well I need to get some sleep. I am about to pass out on this keyboard! I find out my biology grade tomorrow. Wish me luck!

    Hi Viv, about those blurry close-up pics… Have you tried this little trick: hold down your shutter button and when it focuses to what you like, let go, and you should have a less blurry pic. If you already tried this, nevermind!
