Try new things

Since I flirted with veganism, I have been more willing to step out of my comfort zone and try foods that looks or sounds kinda freaky. When I was at blue nile they had steamed vegan collard greens. Collard greens are one of the healthiest greens for you and I have been curious about them. So I dove in and ordered them. The verdict: delicious! I would definitely order them again. Maybe one day I will even be brave enough to try making some myself. Also at blue nile they have a small raw menu and they have a sandwich on it that consists of raw onion bread, tomatoes, avacodo and sprouts. When I saw it I was thinking man that sounds like one healthy meal so I ordered it. It was pretty good, however, the onion did get to me about halfway into the sandwich. I was glad that I ventered out and tried something new. Veganism opens up the mind and I like that. I am thinking I will try to be strict vegan after thanksgiving for a few weeks. We shall see!
