That’s right kids, I’m back, and I’m eating meat. 11 months into a “practice in discipline” which included the complete exclusion of any type of meat in my diet, I finally felt content, well, my stomach wasn’t, but for me, mission accomplished. I always struggled to satisfactorily answer the question “why are you vegetarian”, it usually came out as jaded or watered down Buddhism, and ended with a sigh an explanation about my mother’s spiritual background. On the flip side, I give you my first meat ridden dish in almost a year, a plate of fried chicken. Why did I stop being vegetarian they may ask, brevity is key, “fried chicken my friend, fried chicken.” And waffles.
Oh and apparently KFC is getting all Muslim on us! A Halal KFC just opened up in Brooklyn a few months back, peep that story here.
