Vegetarian Week 1: So Hard To Say No

So it has been almost a week since I decided to try out the vegetarian lifestyle and for some reason all I can think about is chowing down on a greasy cheese burger!

It isn't that it has been extremely hard to avoid meat, I just see it everywhere now! Fast food restaurants now seem like they are on every single street corner. I seem to be always in the presence of my favorite dishes. In Sante Fe there was a street vendor selling lamb donner gyros and I found myself living vicariously through every bite Rob took.  

I must give a huge thanks to my bus mates because they have been really awesome helping me mold the bus meals into vegetarian friendly dishes so far. Rob picked out every single piece of chicken when we had Bunny Chow the other day. If you have never made Bunny Chow, I suggest you give it a try. You can virtually take almost any ingredients you like to make it. There are lots of different recipes online to get you started!

One of the things I have enjoyed about my beginnings into vegetarianism is finding out that a lot of restaurants are actually very veggie friendly! I just have to make sure I let my eyes steer away from my usual favorites and try out the options that fit. 

I am in desperate need of any suggestions from our vegetarian followers out there! Any tips or recipes would be much appreciated.
