I gave up eating meat this Lenten season! I had hoped that my “spiritual” choice would help me lose some of the pounds gained from my months living in Mississippi last year. I weighed for the first time in weeks during my visit to my parent’s house. In truth, I have gained five pounds! It is time for a more serious workout regimen and a closer watch on my calories. It turns out that fried tofu and seitan can be just as bad for you as fried chicken!
