How fun is this? I've heard from a half dozen people already, who were all like me - curious about vegetarian diets, but knowing next to nothing about them! I think I won't be alone in trying something new, which will make it less intimidating.
Kathy, my challenge buddy, said there was even an article in Women's World about a vegetarian diet. (I forgot to ask what issue, Kathy. Is it the current one?)
I'm officially starting on Monday morning, and I'm glad it is a holiday. I don't know how much, or how little, work this will be.
In other news ... we're seeing pictures out of Christchurch, NZ. I've been there - gorgeous town on the south island. To my blog-buddies living in New Zealand, please keep us posted as best you can. It is a miracle (literally) that no one was killed. I've said prayers for all those affected by the event. New Zealanders are a hearty and independent bunch, but they could use (at least) prayerful support right now.
The puffiness I reported of the other day seems to have receded. It was probably the pizza ... Umpf. Even though I ordered it without cheese, it apparently had enough hidden oil in it (somewhere) to stain my shirt. Yes, after washing it several times (even using oxyclean), you can still see the oil stains where it hit my shirt and tumbled (well, more like cascaded) down the shirt front. The shirt wsa only about 2 weeks old. Oh well. On the plus side, I now have a VERY nice shirt to wear around the house for chores. (sigh) I'll be the best dressed gardener in the neighborhood.
No plans for the holiday weekend this year, aside from grocery shopping for the vegan 21-day kickstart supplies.
Enjoy this Labor Day weekend!
