Surprisingly Positive

Tonight at dinner I will break my vegetarian streak. However, I have to say it was not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be! I really enjoyed it, and was encouraged to eat healthier. I only saw two downsides to this little experiment. At Chile’s for my friend’s birthday dinner, I found there were few non meat options. Plus, all my favorite foods there were meat. However, I ended up having a delicious dinner of veggie quesadillas and a CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE!

On campus, the only dining hall I felt had a super limited vegetarian option was, suprisingly, campus center. Their vegan station and salad bar is great, but a lot of the time the vegan station has some “fancier” foods that I am just not willing to try.

Overall, I would definitely do this again. It is not difficult to make the switch, and the impact you can make on the environment is substantial.
