40 Days Sans Meat: This is Getting Harder

Day Twelve:

Remember how a few blogs ago I talked about how it can be a good—or not-so-good—fooding experience when you’re on the road? Today was the perfect example.

The food was excellent, it was just the timing that was not so excellent. The day started out like yesterday: a veggie omelet with fresh squeezed OJ and wheat toast. We started shooting today for the conference. Lunch time rolled around and we decided to grab some food rather than graze on cookies and brownies. So where do we eat, but Quench. What do I eat? Blackened grouper…on salad this time.

Of course, it was delicious and I felt so healthy eating it, but I didn’t get to try another menu item. And, it didn’t fully prevent the grazing.

Grazing is a big problem for me because I feel like I need to try everything and when you’re at a conference with professional chefs from great places like Universal Studios, you want to try everything. So I grazed for a bit and then decided that I should just go get a Chop Chop Salad from Citron and head up to the room to edit. So that’s what I did. And it was delicious.

Breakfast: Veggie omelet with OJ and wheat toast
Lunch: Blackened grouper on a salad
Dinner: Grazing at the COEX reception, and a Chop Chop Salad
