So I made it! Yes, there was that Los Angeles Magazine party incident and the Vitameatavegamin undoing, but I learned a little something about food consciousness/fast food consciousness and GOOD even featured/reblogged one of my food photos on tumblr!
In the end, I think I realized that being a vegetarian for 30 days (give or take) was not bad at all, but actually pretty great.
- I felt better.
- I cooked more.
- I thought about what I ate.
- I explored LA from a different angle.
I think those statements are helped by being in Los Angeles, a place where a number of restaurants provide you with vegetarian alternatives and plenty of places where it’s also their specialty.
Most of all, I have also accumulated a ton of photographic evidence that a vegetarian diet can be a beautiful and delicious experience! See slideshow below or click here for my Flickr set.
For any interested parties (who don’t follow me on Twitter), my first non-veggie meal after this adventure was a rib eye steak from Morton’s (I had to keep up with the superb level of my vegetarian diet).
But seriously, I kind of like this veggie diet, so I think I’ll keep it (for the most part).
