I heart vegetables.

Did I tell you guys I'm a vegetarian (well... pescatarian) now? After Lent I just kept going. I imagine that a few times a year I will probably cave for a steak but I'm just not introducing meat back into my everyday life. And my everyday life is feeling pretty healthy these days, with all the yoga and the good eating. I just bought some size 4 pants for the first time in probably 5 years!

Tonight's dinner:

soba noodles: cooked absorption-style in 1 tsp sesame oil and vegetable broth with 1 C swiss chard, 1 T sesame seeds, soy sauce, and a dash of hot pepper flakes
a small yam roasted with 10 whole garlic cloves, 1 tsp honey, and lots and lots of freshly ground black pepper
half a cob of white corn

I heart vegetables, too. Congrats on the pants; I bet you feel fantastic too with the exercise. The picture and recipe are so making me hungry.

I was one for 12 years. You may find, like me, that the road back to omnivorous behaviour is easier than you think. However, if it makes you feel good, good on ya. Despite what the Frog says, there are a lot of good vegetarian and pesco- dishes that one can survive on quite fine.
