Just wanted to post about the amazingness of an Indian diet! So many wonderful vegetable recipes! Tonight we went out to an place called Saffron (Taste of Bombay).
I had a vegetable Biryani. Loaded with vegetables (green beans, peas, corn, carrots, onions, cauliflower, and mixed with rice, almonds, and lovely spices)...fragrant, and made like in the Royal Indian Palaces! It was delish!
For lunch I was at a Middle Eastern restauant, and had a wonderful cold salad made of lentils, and carmelized onions and whole garlic. This was like eating candy, the onions were so sweet. It had a drizzle of olive oil, and that was it. Wonderful.
All in all, I doubt I had more than 1200 colories for the whole day...probably less.
Being vegetarian for three days now has already given me more energy, and I feel happy and carefree! I never thought I could live without my meat, but I have, and feel better for it!
I am looking into some international recipes for a ton of variety!
