Guess who's vegan again?! It's me! I was vegan for about five years from my Freshman year of high school through the summer of my Sophomore year of college. Then, for to help attempt to bolster my mental health, I started eating fish. Eventually, I became a full on carnivore--the stuff of my vegan nightmares. I think it's kind of funny--no, really funny. I used to be terrified of milk and disgusted with beef--which I haven't eaten for about 10 years--well, before my carnivorous outburst. But, after 60 pounds gained and no improvement in mental health, I have to say, I liked being vegan better. Now, there are days when all I dream about is Little Debbie Fancy Cakes and Weight Watchers Giant Fudge Bars, but I have to say there's more to life than gorging yourself with packaged food. It can be fun, but also, there is the joy of rosemary sizzling in a pan with olive oil and sea salt, fresh cubed zucchini, frozen peaches in the blender with thick roma tomatoes and apple cider vinegar, a hint of apple juice. Peach summer gazpacho. My favorite! Served with Fresh bread toasted with garlic and caramelized onions.
This is my first week, four days in. Today I had Biryani with vegetable dumplings. It is fancy rice seasoned with garlic, cashews, raisins, and several other little delights. I am excited for all the delights to come. No more queso, no more Chick-fil-a sandwiches--this girl is picking up her life in her own hands and running forward with utter glee.
