Oh, Minnesota, how I’ve missed you!
As a few of you may know, I decided to surprise my mother on her 50th birthday with a flight back home to see her for the first time in a year. Boy did she lose it. 😉 It’s so frickin’ cold in the Great North, but it’s wonderful home, sweet home.
Growing up in a family of hunting, gun-loving carnivores, everyone seems very cautious and curious about my eating habits. There are a lot of “rub some bacon on it” jokes happening. I’ve also been eating a lot of food I don’t normally eat because I’m not the one cooking. Pretty much everything is canned and the typical American diet of startch and more starch. This change is definitely effecting my body, and it’s less than thrilled.
I’ve been asked a lot of questions about being a vegetarian,
“What DO you eat every day?”
“Do you do it just for health reasons? Or is it the whole ‘animal rights’ thing?”
So I will be doing a segment, when I return from MN, on the mainstream American lifestyle and how to travel and still stay true to health and wellness choices. (Sorry, WordPress, this app just ain’t cuttin’ it. 😉 )
