A Meal Fit for a...Vegetarian?

So, I’m a vegetarian. I have been for almost 17 years. I don’t eat beef, pork, or chicken (or any of the weird meats like lamb, venison, or dog…).

I’m probably the most low-key vegetarian you’ll ever meet. At age 12 when I proposed this diet to my mother, she agreed to it on two conditions:

1. You need to be healthy

2. We’re not making you a bunch of special food

I learned quickly to not be picky…and I’m really not! I eat pretty much anything except meat. I have preferences, but I’m not a picky eater.

I asked for a vegetarian meal tonight for dinner at the hospital, and I was given one:



Mixed peas and carrots

A piece of white bread


I like yogurt and granola. I like peas and carrots. I even like white bread, although I prefer whole wheat. But the combination is admittedly odd. Peas, carrots, granola, and yogurt.


It gave us a good laugh today, which we needed. So thanks, cafeteria workers! Thanks!
