*grumbles*

I go to the Hart House every day to work out. It is approximately a 10 minute walk from where I live. 15 if I'm moving slow (which I often do on the way back, as I practice my bellydancing while walking. I figure its under a down coat--no one knows, right? Im sure I look ridiculus but whatever.)

Ugh, ugh ugh ugh. Posters for Mark Bittman's talk have been catching my eye for months, he gave a talk at 7pm on Wednesday, and unfortunately I had class 6-8pm. Still, I have to admit I simply forgot. Maybe its for the best, I really shouldn't skip my class.

Anyway, I read this and it just made me more sad for missing out.

Though I have to admit, vegan until 6 is kind of strange.. especially since most would take that to mean dinner=indulge to excess. Vegan until 6, and then vegetarian I'm totally cool with, but "anything goes" is a little iffy advice. While to him it might mean a veeery little bit of meat, I can see this to most meaning an entire steak. Oh well, either way I like that someone so popular has woken up to the issues on meat.

For the record though, and don't hate me, but I'm currently vegetarian. I don't know if I mentioned... there's a list of reasons but in the end its just a personal choice. I do still drink soy/almond milk (my body has gotten a lot better with soy), use vegan products, eat mostly vegan protein bars (mmm Luna bars) etc. Really its mostly just yogurt and some egg whites back in my diet. That being said, I'll avoid posting here unless its vegan, I just wanted to be 'straight' with you guys, especially if I'm gonna start posting more often.

99% vegan is still 99% better than most people!
