Well, my hopes of pumping out blogs upon returning home have not come to fruition, mostly because I have been too busy fighting off the Panamanian Death Plague for the last ten days. I’m one round of antibiotics deep and this illness is still going strong. Bleh!
In other news, I have decided I’m going to be a real vegetarian again. I guess I will have to change my “about me” bio. I have been a vegetarian on and off (mostly on) for the last twenty years. I can’t remember exactly how I decided to be a vegetarian when I was 7 years old, but I do think it had something to do with my sister chasing me with a “pig’s wiener” AKA hot dog.
When I was in Nicaragua I came across too many sweet little piggys, and thought, I really don’t need to be eating these adorable, intelligent creatures. While I may enjoy the crunch of crispy bacon, there are many other plant based foods that I enjoy just as much. So I have decided I will be saying farewell to bacon, pepperoni, and the occasional fried chicken. Yes, I’m probably still going to eat fish from time to time. It’s hard for me to feel REALLY bad for fish. At least If they are wild caught they don’t have to experience the torture that most factory farm animals endure their entire lives. As for eggs and dairy, it is hard to bake without them, so I’m not going full vegan. But I am committing to buying organic and small farm dairy and eggs whenever possible.
