Inside the Life of a Secret Vegetarian

I have a confession. I stopped eating meat in November 2019 and haven’t told anyone… until now.

I decided to go meat free because I love animals and because it’s a lot better for your health. I love fruits and vegetables so it hasn’t been hard.

What has been hard is the lack of options available at restaurants. Most of the time I end up ordering either a veggie burger or a couple sides. The other thing that’s been hard is avoiding bacon. It’s in and on everything!!

So why was I keeping it a secret? Because people are so judgy! I don’t care if you like that I’m becoming a vegetarian, I don’t need your approval and no I don’t want to try your steak topped with a bacon stuffed chicken wing.

I will say that I have put some weight on because I wasn’t eating enough at first and was binging on noodles and bread, it took me a while to really understand how to get full and get enough protein.

Here are some of my favs!! Will share recipes soon!!

Hi, I’m so excited your here! My name is Amanda. Welcome to my blog Dishes and Denim! Writing is my outlet. It grounds me. So, I decided to start a blog where I can share my life with you! I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. My son Bradley was born April 1st, 2018. He is my entire world. Simple is my specialty. I don’t have a lot of extra time and the time I do have I want to spend with my family. I love cooking, cleaning, photography, writing, sewing and running. Maintaining an organized and clutter-free home is a priority. I have a mild obsession with buying photography props, notebooks, coffee mugs, and pens. If there was an award for overanalyzing – I would win every year. I’m a hopeless romantic. My favorite color is turquoise. My perfect day includes waking up to a clean house and having a Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Latte and fresh fruit waiting for me…followed by a long hot shower then bumming around town in comfy jeans and a perfectly fitting white tee and my denim jacket (taking pictures and visiting antique shops). For dinner, I would request a cheeseburger (red onions, pickle, and ketchup) with a side salad (Balsamic, no tomatoes) Then end the day relaxing on my patio with twinkle lights, a glass of Entwine Cabernet and my family (bonus points for a campfire and S’mores). If you want to know more about me you can either invite me out for a glass of red wine or check out some of my blog posts!
