I’ve decided to eat less meat and consume less animal products.
All-at-once changes in habit don’t work for me, and in any case I’m not ready to become a vegetarian. But just “doing it less often” won’t work. I’m an omnivore and lazy. Failure awaits.
Instead, I have committed to one vegetarian day a week. There’s no way I can’t do that, and since it’s formalized it will be harder to screw it up.
I will probably make it a weekday, maybe Wednesday. I’ll decide next week. Today, though, was such a day. I consumed:
Ice tea/lemonade drink.
Salad of beets, sweet red peppers, and cucumber in a yogurt-lemon dressing with coarse black pepper
Sweet corn soup w/black pepper
Stoned wheat crackers
Probably more beer later
Gosh, this is going to be PAINFUL!
