I ate a piece of organic bird 45 minutes ago, I might puke. I've struggled with my vegetarianism for about 4-5 months now and after an interesting coversation, with another vegetarian (!!!), I decided that I would consume organic poultry. When I became a vegetarian I was philosphically opposed to eating meat. I'm not sure what happened but apparently I no longer value poultry in comparison with bovines and swine. That and my naturopath suspects that I am anemic and lack energy, my metabolism sucks ass and my adrenal gland is functionally poorly. Apparently, I'm dying a slow and painful death.

So I bought some. I thanked the bird and ate about 2 ozs and I am fairly sure that 5 years with no meat what-so-ever + bird = pain. I'm a hypocrite and I deserve it. And I will do it again, next time I won't forget the apple cider vinegar in advance.

As for the naturopath-she recommended a B vitamin complex daily plus a vitamin pack x2/day, a bunch of ground up seeds (must buy seeds), a magensium formula and poultry 5 days a week. I'm compromising with 2-3 days a week.

And on to other things...Ty and I had a date night last night when he came home from work. My dad stayed over with Cade and they spent the day with his fiance and their dog. Cade seemed pretty pleased with his new loot (spoiled??? of course not). We stayed at the local Fairmont property, where we were also married 5 yrs ago next month. We ate, I may have had a rather large intoxicating martini, we ate more, we shopped. We spent $500 in 22 hrs. OUCH. And so that my dear is our annual date. Next time C is sleeping at grandpas and we're eating Ichiban.

PS-Here are some recent shots of my super-cute-super-loud-super-smart-kid.

Cool that you are seeing a Naturopath...I am anemic, too - Easy Iron is the best supplement I've found so far. Good luck on eating the chicken. Some papaya enzyme might help with the digestion.

C is looking so big boy-ish! Cute.

Good luck with the chicken, I can't imagine how hard that must be after so many years without it. Hopefully you can find some more supplements that help with the other issues and maybe you can still avoid it....

C is a super-cutie!!

Your date night sounds wonderful!

Yeah. I don't eat red meat but do eat organic chicken and some seafood but really prefer to not eat any meat at all. After this whole swine flu outbreak, I keep telling Mark "see, I told you nothing good can come from eating pigs!"

C is adorable - looking so grown up in his helmet!

Well.. i think your naturopath is compromising your beliefs... but that's my opinion...

she/he should have told you to get Floradix... which is a natural, non wheat/gluten/yeast free=no bloating, yummy Iron drink....

I was really anemic.. and as most of us vegetarians we will be unless we consume gallons of spinach etc. this stuff is amazing.. made out of plants.. but works like a charm.. i had my iron tested after a month of using it and the Docs told me its not possible to get such a high boost of iron on normal tablet over the counted iron... meaning there are things out there that can help fast and don't make you eat chicken :-).. did I make you feel bad yet.. LOL

If you are interested in the Floradix.. its at any local natural products store.. take 20ml 2 times a day and you'll be feeling better in no time!! It wont hurt your stomach like conventional iron tablets do... OK Dr Zoo is done :-)

But I have to say... if you want to eat the chicken.. its ok.. as long as your OK with it...

I'm glad you guys had fun, you deserve it! ;-)
