Meatless Meals Since 'Arrivederci Carne' Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday probably did not expect this from me. After willingly accepting the challenge of eliminating meat, beef, poultry, lamb and pork from my diet, I found an alternative and refreshing way to find pleasure in eating. What can I say? I thought it would be hard, but I find myself nonchalantly picking out the chicharon (pork rind) from my Palabok, or the bacon bits in my Caesar salad, or the beef strips in my Jap Chae (Korean Glass Noodles).

Because of this, I feel I must give up something else to make up for the lack of actual sacrifice and hardship of becoming pescetarian. Oh, I forgot I gave another thing up. DONE!

So these have been my meals these past 3 weeks...

Smoked Salmon Open Faced Sandwich with Capers and Peppers at Chelsea
Grilled Halibut with Citrus Orzo and Truffle Hollandaise Sauce and Asparagus at Chelsea
Fish Tacos with Cilantro Aioli and some goodies at TJ's Mexican
Paneer Curry at Bliss Cafe
Sunset (Fried Rice with Veggie Sausage + Potato Cheese and Chives Rolls) at Bliss Cafe
Sunrise (Tofu Scramble with Veggie Sausage & Mantra +Toast) at Bliss Cafe
