I like to say that I am not vegetarian because I like bacon and not vegan because I like butter. I tried to become vegetarian a few summers ago to level out my hormones. Of course, then we got to France and I craved (and indulged in) steak tartare with reckless abandon.
So I have decided that a more balanced approach towards my tendency to eat vegetarian and vegan is better. I eat what sounds good and I try to eat home foods that are minimally processed.
On Monday, I had a tonsillectomy. Now if you are familiar with getting your tonsils out, this generally involves lots of cold stuff the first few days (ice cream, ice, popsicles, etc.)
