new here! trying to "revive" my LJ, haven't used it in YEARS but am currently jonesing for some vegan friends. recently moved from CT to NC (military move) and feel so lonesome and freakish own here. the south is not so vegetarian/vegan friendly :(
tonight i was at a japanese restaurant I had never been to with a friend of mine. Don't you just love this: you ask if a million things have meat/fish/egg, ONLY order vegetables, rice, tofu dishes and still... something meaty ends up on your plate? Usually I can notice this type of mishap quite blatantly, but tonight I wasn't so fortunate. Order onigiri, which, as the menu described were simply "sticky rice balls, wrapped in seaweed, filled with seasoned miso." Yum, right? After eating most of the 2 on the plate, my friend picked out what appeared to be a tiny piece of meat. After asking our waitress (who still insisted it was meat-free) and then asking her to go in the back to check again, we found out I did, in fact, eat tiny bits of PORK. so gross..for so many reasons. </rant>
anyways, i'm mad/sad but over it. I'm not gonna stew over it because it's on their conscience, not mine. I might get a bellyache and feel gross but being negative and miserable is probably alot more unhealthy. Learning experience, right?
that's all for now. oh, and I'm also just starting the Insanity work out - any other vegans out there attempt this, in the past or present? Or planning to?! Could really use a buddy :) i'm blogging about my meals/experience too: http://www.daniellebaldino.com/?page_id=1526
