“Wait.  Do you eat meat?”

I’ve lost count to how many time I’ve been asked this question.

My clients and I love to swap recipes, cooking advice and kitchen stories.  It never fails, however, that in the midst of these conversations, one of them will get a puzzled look and, before proceeding any further, clarify my stance on meat.

What exactly does a vegetarian look like?  What am I putting out there that this has become such a common misunderstanding?

Less than an hour ago (it’s 2:37 AM as I write this), Brian ran to a 24-HR McDonald’s drive-thru for me (and Bennett) and brought back a cheeseburger.  That’s not true.  He brought back two cheeseburgers.  Now, with McDonald’s burgers ever being under scrutiny as to whether or not their meat is in fact meat, perhaps that’s not my finest example of my omnivorous tendencies.  But, no, I’m not a vegetarian.

Just thought I’d like to set the record straight once and for all.

    Now you have me wondering, what DOES a vegetarian look like???

    You look like a vegetarian. Yup. They are usually leaner looking and have great skin and a glow to them. I can attest to this. Whenever I come across a vegan/vegetarian at my tables, they are usually very “healthy looking”. Interesting right? You look healthy and (even though your preggo) lean.

    Oh and I can usually spot a “runner” too. They have a certain body type. lol
