Last February, I was in the midst of my gallbladder disease. On February 12th, I ate kielbasa from my favorite childhood butcher.
The next day I was very sick. Even though I did eat some chicken salad that day, I made the decision to start eating vegetarian.
So Valentine’s Day/ Ash Wednesday 2018 is my vegetarian anniversary.
My emergency surgery to have my gallbladder out was on February 24th. Even though I was allowed to eat a regular diet afterwards, I continued eating a vegetarian diet.
My first goal was to make it until Easter and then I would maybe eat some seafood. I still have not eaten an seafood or meat.
It’s been 8 months since I became a vegetarian.
During this year’s Write 31, I’m going to be focusing vegetarian cooking.
