Testing Out Vegetarianism

I always wanted to be a vegetarian. It always sounded like such a noble cause: saving the animals, the environment, and my health all in one fell swoop. But my actual experience with vegetarianism is somewhat mixed. In high school, I quit eating meat altogether for about six months, much to the chagrin of my meat-loving family. Eventually the weight of fixing my own vegetarian dinners was too burdensome, so I decided to incorporate chicken into my meals. A few months after that, pork found its way back into my diet. I managed to avoid beef entirely for 10 years, before I finally broke down and had a hamburger. A lot people are probably similar to me. Vegetarianism sounds like the right thing to do, but you're not quite sure you can actually go all the way.

The instant mashed potatoes appear to be here only to add insult to injury as they don't belong anywhere near pasta except when being used to make gnocchi (and when doing that, you use real potatoes, not some reconstituted crap from a box).
    And all this fuckery is served up on a chipped plate, with artificial "butter" that probably won't melt because all that shit is room temperature, guaranteed.
    Never mind the BG meter, this picture caused my WTF meter to redline as well.
