Oh Pizza, my old friend…

September 11, 2010

This week, I learned something that I have learned over and over again in my life. If you change your diet, and then suddendly you fall back into old habits, you will suffer and pay. Let me explain.

Last night, 4 of us went out for dinner. We were going to go to this great little Thai restaurant that I have been to a thousand times, but not recently. Well, we all show up, and the nice little restaurant is now a fast food restaurant. Bleah!

Besides my ongoing march towards veganism, the others also have their food thoughts and preferances. In the neighbourhood was an Il Fornello’s – a nicer Italian chain restaurant, that has a wood stone oven for pizza. We all agree on this location.

Then we ordered food. There was a perfectly good option for a vegetarian pizza, on spelt crust. So what does Frank order? Why a Proscuitto pizza with Mozzerella cheese! I inhaled the first half of the pizza, no problem, and was nice and full. I figure that I can get the other half to take home and eat later. Except, I am trying to not bring that sort of thing into the house. As I am the only one who will eat that (as detailed in the Food Criteria tab), it means that the food would either need to be eaten, or wasted. One thing that really bothers me is wasting food, and not just because I love proscuitto and mozzerella.

So I ate the other 1/2 of the pizza.

Along with some wine, and an ameretto on the rocks after dinner.

The whole trip home, lying in bed, waking up this morning, and most of the morning, my stomach felt like your stomach would feel right after a massive Thanksgiving dinner, with that big ball of food feeling stretching out your stomach. I felt so gross. I am sure that alcohol had something to do with it, but I woke up feeling like I was hung over. A food hang over perhaps?

Needless to say, next time I will not be going with the meat and cheese. And if I do, I will not be eating a whole pizza. Far too much. Not worth that after feeling. Lesson remembered. Lesson learned.
