I've finished my first week or being vegetarian! I'm very proud of myself and my confidence that I can do this has been raised. I'm so glad that animals will no longer be killed for my personal consumption. I'm glad that I can do this for both myself and for the tortured and abused animals in the world who would have to die just to feed me. I will never be a part of that in which society partakes in so easily.
My dad gave me money to take my boyfriend and I out to Hu Hot. Whether you are a vegetarian, vegan, or carnivore, I think that you may love this place. You go up to tables full of things to put together, such at meat, noodle, vegetables, and then the sauces. It's an all you can eat joint, which is pretty cool. If you are anywhere near a Hu Hot, I would recommend that you give it a try! It's been my favorite restaurant for years. I'm glad that becoming vegetarian would still permit me to eat here. (:
I ate two plates while I was there. The first was a type of noodles, mushrooms, cabbage, carrots, parsley, baby corn, pea pods, and broccoli. My second plate was really sweet since I put a little bit of the three noodle types, mandarin oranges, pineapple, and a bit of parsley and cabbage.
I am completely in love with this as a lifestyle. I would encourage anyone else to give vegetarianism a try--even for a week. It's a wonderful experience, not to mention you'll probably get to be a little bit healthier.
I was also hoping that I could find a way to meet other vegetarians or vegans to make like-minded friends whom live around me. Anyone have any good ideas on how to meet these kind of people?
