Don’t hate me because my salad is beautiful

Based on some feedback on Facebook I feel the need to talk a little about being a vegetarian, again.  Really, this is the second day of my blog and stupid food is all I can talk about. But before I get into it I’d like to list some foods that I don’t eat

meat (I do eat some fish, occasionally)
gelatin (ground animal bones)
lard (animal fat)
eggplant (I just don’t like them)
arugula (had some once that was a little too dirty tasting)
roe (eew)
artichoke hearts (Luke loves them, I do not)
I’m sure there are others.  But who really cares.  What does it matter that I don’t eat meat.  Get over it.  There are some plant foods that I don’t eat either and that doesn’t seem to bother any one. Just because I choose a plant based diet doesn’t mean I’m not thanking God for it.  Are you kidding me?  I don’t have to eat meat to think God gave us animals to enjoy.  I just enjoy them in a different way than you do, not on my plate.
So whatever, unfriend me, unfamily me if you need to.  I’m free to make those kind of choices, and I really am not thinking God is going to smite me for it.  No danger.  This is not a religious issue for me in the least, nor do I think it has to be.

      I completely respect that you are going to Chick-fil-a. If this had of all gone down a year a go, I’d be there…well maybe, the high is 106 today and the line is pretty long.
