Vegetarian Apparently Doesn’t Mean Vegetables…

Being a Business Consultant and Coach by day and a Figure Competitor by night makes for some interesting experiences! This evening I went to a fancy schmancy networking supper. I decided that I could be ‘normal’ and eat the supper. Heck, I even went for the vegetarian option, after all, that would mean vegetables galore? Right?

Wrong. SO WRONG.

It’s really hard to appear normal when you are sitting at a table full of hungry men when you don’t eat any of the meal. Luckily I have refined the art of cutting food up and moving it around on the plate so it appears as though I have eaten quite a bit of the meal…I only got 17 or so questions about my weird eating which was way less that usual.

As soon as the event was over, I ran home and made an EPIC salad so I didn’t die from hunger.

Apparently I can’t pronounce ‘ravioli’ when I am in near starvation mode! I would have made the video again, but my stomach demanded that I eat the Epic Salad NOW.

Am I the only one that didn’t know that vegetarian meals don’t come with vegetables?!

  1. I have been vegetarian for 8 months now and it STILL burns me how bad it is to eat out. There are some phenomenal meals that I’ve had but they have been my own creation. I found that when I order like Sally “on the side” I get alot more better options. I’ve been wondering I too LOVE that Liberte yogurt (and thanks to you I know exactly where to get it) what do you eat it with? Do you do fruit? I’ve seen you do the chocolate. Keep up the great work!! I read your blog daily and LOVE it!

    • Thanks lady! For the yogurt here are a few of my favs:
      – chocolate, peanut butter, and apple
      – nutmeg, cinnamon, and apple
      – salsa mixed with it in a 1 to 1 ratio and used as a veggie dip
      – dill and lemon used as a dip for veggies
      – use it wherever you would normally use sour cream (like on a potato)
      Mmmmm!!
      For the ‘sweet’ mixes I add in a bit of splenda brown sugar to cut the sour flavor. It’s one of two of the only two times I use artificial sweeteners. I am trying to drop it altogether though.
      How do you eat it?

  2. Great job NOT eating the pasta w/cheese! That’s some hardcore will power there, I’m proud of you. I know I wouldn’t have been able to. And not eating the salad, you rock!
