This week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post was to share a picture about resolving one of your New Year’s resolutions.
“1. Eat vegetarian… most of the time.”
Today marks Day 10 of eating vegetarian (and mostly vegan), much to the ire of my friends and, occasionally, my parents. Do I regret going vegetarian? Not at all. If I regretted it, I would just eat meat, wouldn’t I? The funny thing is, I only resolved to be vegetarian on the weekdays. I still haven’t had any meat, and the only dairy I’ve had is in the form of a bit of shredded cheese and the occasional organic yogurt.
No cravings so far, except for lumpia. Luckily, my friend Renxyoko Iglesias informed (after making me drool) veggie lumpia is more common in the Philippines. Maybe I need to go back just for the lumpia!
School is back in session, my lunches have been vegetarian, and I don’t consider this some “terrible secret” I need to hide from everyone. There’s nothing wrong with making better choices about your diet!
So what do I want to do next? I’d love to start a food blog—and later a writing blog—while leaving Kuya’s Notebook as my niche-less personal blog where I have the free reign to post about any topic. I’ve already started collecting and trying out recipes, as well as taking a few pictures of food—including the pictures you’ve seen in the last few posts! (And I love these photo challenges! They’re great for overcoming writer’s block!)
See y’all soon!
