Omnivore in a Vegetarian Conundrum

I find myself in a bit of a vegetarian conundrum…. I love the meat. It is delicious… and juicy… and… meaty. Mmmmm…. My problem is that the more educated I become on organic and cruelty free practices, the more aware I become of traditional livestock conditions, which definitely do NOT sit comfortably with either my deep love and respect for animals, or my burgeoning holistic approach to life. I’m beginning to wonder whether, without alternatives, I may be forced to vegetarianism in short order.

She’s Bought the Farm

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA): A means to support local economy, improve your diet, reconnect with the land… maybe even lift your spirits. About a week ago, I heard about this thing called “Community Supported Agriculture,” or CSA. Now, not only am I considering becoming a member myself, I’m looking for ways to spread the word about this remarkable concept to everyone I know. In this fast-paced world of junk-food convenience and internet isolation, Community Supported Agriculture is a means of directly connecting to the highest quality produce available, while simultaneously building community and increasing local awareness.

Dinner With My Husband – An Average Monday

So here we are, Monday night, and we are just clearing away the dishes from a scrumptious meal. We even ate dinner at the table, with napkins and silverware, like real grown-ups! We talked a lot about how much fun we had yesterday, and a little about all of the social activities we have in the coming weekends. It is critically important, I’ve discovered, to remember to TALK to one’s husband now and again! Try it – you’ll like it. Tonight’s menu:

Dangerously European

Since “discovering” the laws of the universe some nine months ago, I’ve been learning to let my body and my intuition guide me, rather than my sense of obligation… and can I just take a moment to tell you how much HAPPIER I am? It infuses me with energy, with passion, with a sense of joie de vivre. In preparation for the launch of my next big project, and possibly the next phase of my life, my new favoritest-thing-in-the-whole-world to do is to sit out on my patio, soaking up what few glorious rays of summer we’re gifted with in the Chicago area, drinking wine, listening to music, and writing away. I’ve come to term my new way of life as “dangerously European.” See, I live in the burbs, and my neighbors are less than 30 feet from me. In fact, I’d bet they’re at their kitchen table watching me right now, shaking their heads at my rapidly disappearing wine. Oh, did I mention it’s 10:30am? Haha!
