Unfortunately, week three in our attempt at weekday vegetarianism was a flop. Well, I must just speak for myself in this, as my husband fared a lot better than myself. Due to unforeseen circumstances, my appetite reached an all-time low, and a frightening low at that, as I simply cannot afford to not eat because of the aforementioned doctor’s advice to gain twenty pounds to be at a healthy weight. Needless to say, this week I ate whatever sounded good, and that did include a few burgers, a hot dog and a chicken sandwich. This raises a few questions in my mind:
Is there a point where vegetarianism can be taken too far?
Is there a point where a carnivorous lifestyle can be taken too far?
Is general health relative to the person experiencing it?
Hopefully, I will gain some insight into these questions as I spend the afternoon with my friend Kate, an experienced vegetarian and mature young woman.
