La Boquisabrosa’s Update: Is she still a vegetarian?

Hello Food Lovers,

I am back from spring break and writing about what I love: food. However, before I embark on this task, I want to give you an update about my journey of vegetarianism during Lent.  Since March 9, I have been meat-free.

So you may ask, what are your staple foods?

I am not limited on food options as a vegetarian; everyday I try to cook new dishes.  Some of my consistent dishes include: herb rice, potatoes, asparagus, Margherite pizza, nachos, quesadillas, and more.

How many days do I have left?
16 days, then I will return slowly to my regular diet.

Being vegetarian has not been easy, even though I have done this for the past 5 years during lent.  My next blog article will be on the Latino definition of “vegetarian” and came about through certain experience that made it difficult to be vegetarian with my family. I continue to remain strong during these moments and will do so for the next 16 days.

Con amor,

La Boquisabrosa

Here is some food that I made.
