January is a time of new beginnings and, of course, new resolutions. In my effort to become a better cook/food writer/organic chick, I’ve decided to explore the various dietary lifestyles chosen by many of my organic colleagues. I will try them both as culinary endeavors and as healthy ways of living, which is to say I want to see if they help me cook and feel better.
The plan is to do each for a week. First vegetarian, then vegan, then gluten-free, and finally….RAW. Eating raw for a week terrifies me, but raw (where nothing is cooked over 104 degrees) foodists swear by the lifestyle. My reason for putting this on the blog is two-fold. First, I’m hoping that you all will hold me accountable, and that I will actually go through with all four weeks. Second, and most importantly, I want to explore these for you. Have you considered vegetarianism, or heard about gluten-free but never quite understood it? I, an avowed burger and fish lover, will go there for you.
Now, on to Vegetarian week. oy.
