back to writing in the new year. realizing that writing is important for me. key vehicle of expression. and so many new ideas. Had lunch with a friend on Saturday and she voiced something using exactly the same words that I would have used had I spoken first. We were talking about being non-vegetarians but enjoying vegetarian food. She said that when she eats vegetarian she feels lighter. Not as in body weight, but just lighter. Exactly the way I feel. I don’t know why this is. It may be that it is easier for our bodies to digest vegetarian food and that meat is more difficult. I’ve really noticed how much different I feel when I go meatless. And it doesn’t have anything to do with the sensation of fullness. Yesterday I made falafel for the first time. OMG, what a wonderful food that is. and definitely filling. Made me wish I had more room so I could eat more. I felt full but not heavy.
