Seems like giving up sweets or chocolate is pretty popular among then Lent observers. Glad to know I’ll have some people battling with me!
Lunch today was leftovers of last night’s stir fry with an apple for dessert.
And for dinner I went with Amy’s Low Sodium Minestrone soup and a cheeze sandwich. The Catholic Church encourages fasting on Ash Wednesday (which according to them can also mean having just one large meal, two smaller meals and no snacks in between). Since I didn’t fast today I thought I should at least keep my dinner simple.
To me you can’t get much more simple than a can of soup and a cheese sandwich. I know that on Fridays in Lent when Catholics aren’t supposed to eat meat, people often times end up eating extravagant meals of lobster or crab. Totally not the point!
On a side note, I heard of a Church in St. Louis that is doing a vegetarian pot luck dinner one Friday in Lent instead of a Fish Fry. It is marketed towards the vegetarians that give up meat daily as a way for them to experience the community that goes along with the Friday cook-outs. COOL!
I’m working on a final review of The China Study now! And I just picked up Born To Run for some pre-marathon inspiration. Goodnight!
