Vegetarian 101: The All-Day Eating Plan

Vegetarian 101: The All-Day Eating Plan

It’s funny; in today’s culture, we all want and seek quick fixes but big problems. How many times have you’ve heard of someone who wants to lose weight fast but yet they aren’t entirely willing to go the distance and get discouraged to find that really there’s no quick fix. When it comes to losing […]

Vegetarian 101: Fighting Temptations

Over the past few days I’ve dedicated a few blog posts to the world of vegetarianism. I dealt with what being a vegetarian is and isn’t with my post “A Crash Course for Skeptics and Beginners” and then tackled the trickiest meal of the day with “Rethinking Breakfast”. At first, the next logical piece in […]

Vegetarian 101: Rethinking Breakfast

| July 23, 2010 | 3 Replies

Eggs, ham, pork sausage, sausage patties, biscuits and gravy, bacon, milk, coffee with cream, cheese grits … all of these things seem to be the staple of the typical breakfast in America and abroad. Yet, for vegetarians, breakfast isn’t so easy. What happens when your eating lifestyle doesn’t include meat or what if it doesn’t […]

I tried staying fit throughout the winter so that come spring and summer, I wouldn’t have much work to do for the ‘shirtless’ season. Weight wise, I was about eight pounds over my usual weight. Yes, being near 120 lbs isn’t bad – most people would kill to see that number on the scale – […]

Recipe: Cheat-Day Pizza

| April 26, 2010 | Reply

I think the key to any successful eating plan (I like that term over ‘die-ting’) is allowing yourself to indulge from time to time. My favorite ‘cheat’ meal tends to be a slice of pizza from Whole Foods. They use fresh ingredients and hearth-fire the pizza, really giving you a not-so bad slice of pizza. […]

Say It Loud, Say It Proud, “I’m a Vegetarian!”

A couple weeks ago I posted about coming out at as a vegetarian. Since then I’ve had a few conversations with people about being a vegetarian and questions that I thought I’d address. At church there was a luncheon after service and somehow (as usual) the topic of discussion was how I’m vegetarian. People always […]

This is for all of you vegetarian size queens out there. My mother picked me purchased this huge pepper for me while she was at the Farmers Market in Raleigh, N.C. this morning. Look at it! It’s so big! I had some peppers I bought at Walmart last week and it’d take two of them […]

Where’s the Beef? Going Vegetarian

| February 17, 2010 | Reply

In day 3 of my week long fitness/health-centric blogs, I’m taking on vegetarianism. Vegetarians often get a bad rep. In movies they’re portrayed as granola munching, uber-sensitive, environmental activists that march with PETA and make scenes around those who dare to even dream of consuming a crumb of bacon. Well, that’s not entirely true! What […]

This week (God willing) I plan to do 1 post a day about a health/fitness issue. Since 2008, I’ve lost over 60 lbs. Am I perfect now? No, I’m still a work in progress. More work actually goes into keeping off the weight you lose than you put into getting the pounds off at the […]

Winter Vegetarian Vegetable Soup

| January 29, 2010 | Reply

So, some may think there’s a typo in the title. Isn’t ALL vegetable soup vegetarian? Well … not necessarily. Some may add in chunks of beef or ground turkey to give the soup more flavor; some may have all vegetables but will use a beef or chicken stock. Some may have only a little selection […]
