Being an omni is tough. When I don't stop to consider what I am eating because of my ethical concerns, I find that my lifelong habit of not paying attention to nutritional value kicks in. As a result, I'm just eating. I suppose the "good" news is that after several days of eating meat, I'm not feeling particularly energized, so the issue was not lack of animal-sourced amino acids. Back to veganism on Sunday.

    "The Year of the Vegan" is a diary of my challenges and triumphs during 2010 - a year in which I will not consume any animal products. This commitment is motivated by my disgust about the hidden and externalized environmental, social and societal  costs of our nation's food network. Join me considering what we eat, and why.

    This year is also a year of personal transitions - from graduate student and freelance writer living in rural southwestern Virginia to fully-employed DC resident.
