This is sort of my first "food post" and is by no means a recipe, more an ode to things I think are very tasty. One of my favorite things to eat right now is a delicious summer salad with strawberries and apples, so yummy! I also love it with Cranberry, Walnut and Gorgonzola Salad dressing from Trader Joes = the best!
On a tangent about fruits and vegetables and vegetarianism, for most of my adult life people have assumed I'm a vegetarian, I think mainly because I'm pale and artsy looking and somewhat thin-ish and that is how vegetarians look, right?!? No, not really. I really don't mind when people assume that, it's just funny how often it happens. Ironically as of late I've sort of become an accidental vegetarian. I generally lean towards foods and restaurants that are vegetarian friendly. I don't remember when the last time was I bought any sort of meat item from the grocery store. I do occasionally like a good sandwich which might be hard to give up if I decided to become a real vegetarian. I don't really have any moral reason to become a vegetarian it just seems like something that may happen as I seem to be less and less interested in meaty things. I guess it's something I really should research even if I don't go all the way, just to make sure I'm getting the balanced diet I need with or without meat.
Anyone reading a vegetarian or vegan and want to give your experience or share any resources or favorite recipes? I'd love to get feedback :)
