No more meat!

I know I've been absent for a little over a month...and it's been everything but relaxing! Our big road trip adventure came and went. It was such a blast! The views were amazing and the memories we made will be forever. It was such an awesome experience.

The day before we left for our trip I had a health dilemma that caused me to pay the ER a visit. I have always had gastric issues and years ago I was diagnosed with gastritis. Every now and then I get flareups, which cause me to monitor what I eat pretty closely. Stomach/gastric pain is no joke. It can last for hours and even up to a few days, for me anyway. The pain that I felt last month was completely different. Anyhoo-long story short, the doc said I have gall stones. DEAR GOD! 

Luckily, I don't need to do anything as of yet. But if pain were to arise again or worsen, I will more than likely opt to get my gallbladder removed.

The past few months I have had horrible gastric reflux and mild gastric pain, especially in the evenings. All of these issues have led me to look into a vegetarian diet. I still have a lot to learn and research but I believe I'm on the right path. Currently, I have eliminated meat from my diet and it has helped tremendously! I am still eating poultry and/or fish about 3 times a week. I want to eventually eliminate those from my diet as well. 

I'm hoping to bring you all along with me during this new lifestyle of mine. If any of you are living a vegetarian lifestyle I would love to hear how you adapted to it, any recommended reading material and recipes you would like to share too!
