>Living in the South, naturally I’m not surrounded by many people who have a diet anywhere near similar to mine. My love for yoga, wellness, and forward thinking has helped me meet others in my town like me. Mainly, though, the majority of people I befriend have no idea what the term “vegan” is even in reference to. I enjoy talking with people who are different than me, especially those who have a true, non-judgemental interest in what I eat on a daily basis.
Thus, I am beginning a new entry theme called “The Dish.” The idea stemmed from a sarcastic (yet friendly) suggestion of a new acquaintance who asked me how I find different things to eat for 3 meals every day. Basically, rather than giving an “example menu” for one day’s meals, here you’ll find true examples. I’ll list what I eat in a day for my main 3 meals and/or snacks in between. Don’t worry, I’m not starting a daily online food journal, just the occasional daily menu for those who many be interested. I don’t have that kind of time, and frankly I’m not sure that’s the healthiest obsession. If you’d like to learn recipes, where I eat, why I eat what I do (etc), email me or post a comment! I enjoy making new connections.
