Ok, so the pizza was not great. I guess I’m not a fan of tofu ricotta. But the crust was delightful. (To anyone just tuning in, I tried a new pizza last night from Vegan with a Vengeance.) But the toppings I made – Bleck – I couldn’t take the texture. Although it was extremely satisfying crumbling the tofu in my fingers to make it ricotta-like!
I am not so picky in my foods as I used to be. My eating lifestyle will keep me healthy, happy and just plain alive for longer. I am very happy with my eating lifestyle. Not just the veganism, but the healthiness and the balance where I can maintain my weight. I am in the best shape of my life. I am completely convinced that animals products are harder to digest and therefore are the main contributers in a diet to being overweight. And anyway, you get so much more from a varied plant-based diet. I mean, the amount of beans and nuts I eat alone put me off the charts for my folic acid requirements. I was concerned about that because the majority of adult females do not get enough, according to some such study somewheres… but I get a ton. There will be slim to nill chances that my infants will have spina bifida.
I know I am only one person, but I get so discouraged watching people devour meat after they seem to show some understanding for vegetarianism. I was at a barbeque today and watched chickens cut in half being grilled and thought ‘Look at the massacre. I wonder if there are even any that were once a pair’.
If anyone in my family even becomes half a vegetarian because of me I would be in awe. I still have hopes for my little cousin. She tried it with very good intentions but she’s only eleven and it’s not easy. But I have hope still. We’ll get all the girl cousins veggie someday :) In the meantime, I’ll eat my potatoes and beans and veggie burgers and try to be content with doing my part.
