During my junior year of college I was a vegetarian for 5 months. I must admit I didn't do a very good job. I lived off on peanut butter and pasta and ended up gaining weight instead of losing weight like I had expected. I had no idea what to cook. Without meat, I didn't know what to center my meals around, and I was always hungry. Towards the end of the semester with the stress of finals I broke down and got some chicken fingers from the dining hall.
Nowadays, I don't eat too much meat. I rarely eat red meat, but I do eat some seafood and turkey and chicken. Lately I've been asking my mom (yes I still live at home, but what can I say, it's free food!) to pick up some Tofu and I've been trying to make some dinners with that.
Tonight's dinner would be perfect for a 5 year old. I made a grilled cheese and had some baby carrots on the side. I also ate the rest of my salad from last night which consisted of mixed greens, sauteed tofu, black olives, feta, green peppers, and chickpeas. I mostly eat whole wheat bread, but tonight I used white Italian bread from Pace's. I like to have it once in a while because IT'S SO GOOD.
After dinner I went to the gym for a quick workout. My legs were a little tight from yesterday's
