vegetarian NOTI have tried over the years, since I really got serious about cooking, to be a vegetarian, but am more of a flexitarian.  It seems far easier to be a flexitarian than any kind of “…arian,” but when I really tried my hardest to be a vegetarian for the past year, I realized that it is far easier than I could have realized.  My Mom, (whom I live with) has been my influence, and has become very efficient at cooking lots of vegetarian meals, so I thought I had I had a real chance, because I likewise cook my own share of vegetarian dishes.

We went to our family cottage in Michigan last summer for a month, and I cooked a lot of the meals.  But when we left and had dinner at my parents’ friends house on our way home and they had sausage, well I just couldn’t pass it up.  I even took some of the B-12 liquid drops as supplements for not having meat (but have since stopped taking them).

However, even though I am now a flexitarian for the immediate future, I prefer vegetarian dishes for the most part- meat is just something I’m programmed to eat- at least that’s the way I see it.

I don’t think I’ll be eating beef for a long time, as I always try to order a veggie burger whenever I go to a bar type setting or it’s offered on fast food type menu.  But sausage, bacon, and chicken are another story, and although I try to avoid these, I cannot help but be lured in on occasion.
