It Was an Ensalada Gaudalajara With Added Black Beans

Today, I started thinking that salads are real food.

I’ve written before about shifts that I’ve made in my attitudes about eating. Over the last several months I’ve been making a few more, specifically a shift away from eating so much meat and toward more vegetables. What happened today is that I noticed I no longer think about vegetarian dishes as something that I eat instead of what I want. Salads — good salads — are something that I enjoy eating. I’ll probably never become a complete vegetarian, but I realized that I no longer think of meat as “real food” and everything else as filler.

I had this epiphany as I was getting ready to order lunch. During the meal, two women stopped to ask me what the salad I was eating was, because it looked so tasty.
