Vegetarian No More!

April 24, Easter Sunday, was the last day of Lent, a day I’ve been looking forward to since I promised to give up meat 40 days before.  I am vegetarian no more!

What did I break my Lent with?  My mother’s cooking.  I requested a traditional Jalisiciense mole with orange rice.

Usually, participation in Lent results in a lesson learned.  I learned to choose healthier options, to be creative with my vegetables, and that sometimes, options are limited for vegetarians in Latino communities.

Even though I am not vegetarian, I would like to incorporate vegetarian reviews in my regular reviews and advocate for vegetarian options to restaurant when none are not available.
