And in the space of a few weeks I got more and more convinced that me too, I needed to make a change.

Vegetarian Steak Bomb Subs
I'm not a football fall, but I do love a good Superbowl Party, those won't be happening this year....friggin Covid. When I think of game day foods, I think the more gooey and cheesy the better. I'm a long term vegetarian, most of my friends and all of my family are carnivores. When it comes to Superbowl Parties most people are asked to BYOB I am asked to BYOF (bring your own food. I've gotten some interesting reactions when people learn I'm vegetarian . There is usually an few people who will ask “ you still eat chicken, right? ” To which I respond, “no, I don't eat anything that had a face, or a mother.” So, you eat fish then? “ No, I don't eat fish either. "What about scallops, they don't have faces.” No, scallops.” The conversation could be endless, it just easier to bring my own food .
We ended 2020 with surf and turf and an evening gaming with members of our safe six. Way back in the before, on March 14, 2020, we'd decided that the eight of us would be our safe group. And none of us would see other people without masks except in very special circumstances and that when that happened, we'd quarantine and warn the others in our group.

The Truth Behind a Plant-Based Lifestyle
The whole thing started as a fluke. A dinner with my girlfriend at Nando’s gone wrong. Eight hours in the Georgetown University Hospital, two Xrays, a tube shoved up my nose, and a pint of Halotop later led me to sware off meat for a few days. I’ll spare you the details of what happened, but know this; those days turned into weeks and weeks into months.

Confessions of an Ex-Carnivore
Growing up I never once ate a vegetable. Granted, my mother couldn’t cook very well so a vegetable usually consisted of a frozen block of something green thrown into a boiling pot of water, and voila here is your dinner side dish. I was repulsed by the rubbery texture and lack of taste and quite honestly, assumed that this is what vegetables tasted like. This inner narrative bred me to become a carb crazed carnivore for most of my life. To me, pizza was a complete meal. The tomato sauce counted as a veggie and everything else was a bonus.
Why be Vegetarian
After Reading “the omnivore's dilemma” by Michael Pollan, the book opened my eye to such a big subject. We, as human beings, have a long history on this planet. We may not know how we started on this planet, but we know that we did all that we could to survive and live for another day. We had to kill other animals to eat and survive. However, after a very long time using the method of killing to live, we finally found another source of food that is good enough to keep us alive and healthy. That source is farming. We somehow learned how to plant seeds and get vegetables and fruits that can give us our need for protein and vitamins to live. With that said so, people should adopt a vegetarian diet because vegetarian food is better for the body, easier to have, and will save animals' life.
