Going Veggie (or Not): My Vitameatavegamin Undoing #30daysofgood

The only thing “good” about this post is that I am able to use an “I Love Lucy” reference: Hello friends. I'm your Vitameatavegamin girl. Are you tired, run-down, listless? Do you poop out at parties? Are you unpopular? The answer to all your problems is in this little bottle. Vitameatavegamin. Yes, Vitameatavegamin contains Vitamins Meat Vegetables and Minerals. (“Lucy Does a TV Commercial”, Season 1, Episode 30). Emphasis on "Meat”…as in I found out today that the Read more [...]

Going Veggie: Confession–I Cheated #30DaysofGOOD (or Not)

Okay, so if you follow my twitter, among my randomness, you would have seen this tweet:     If you look at this image closely, you would have seen that Chef John Rivera Sedlar created this menu for the Los Angeles Magazine’s 50th anniversary party to which my lovely friend Katie invited me.

Veggie Day 2 & 3: The Restaurant Effect #30DaysofGood (Photos)

Let’s be honest.  I work a lot and can’t cook as much as I would like.  I work a lot and I live in a town called Los Angeles with perhaps one of the most diverse food selections in the world and is privy to a ton of awesome restaurants.  So, obviously, this town can be fairly vegetarian fare-friendly as I’ve kind of always known, but am really beginning to figure out with this adventure. Perhaps it was fate that my GOOD LA local email today featured “Nine Los Angeles Restaurants Where Read more [...]
