The Hiatus is Over

Hi all!

Yes, I did take an unplanned hiatus. What has happened in my life during this time is that I got married, as well as pregnant, and I just gave birth to my baby girl a few days ago. It has been a beautiful time of growth and learning for me. I'm excited to begin this new chapter of my life as a MOTHER. I feel THIS is when I will learn the most from life about who I am, as well as who I was meant to be. I feel so blessed to have the privilege of caring for this beautiful little Queen.

Veggie Tales: Update. 03/03/13


Just in case you all are wondering, I am still a vegetarian. There's no turning back now, I have no doubt that I'll be a veg-head forever. ;) Things are going well. It's been almost 7 months since I started this journey. I am still excited about it and I look forward to the future. I plan on expanding my palate and trying new things, but my ultimate goal is to become vegan. One day. I'm not quite ready for that now, but eventually I will get there. If you have any questions about the vegetarian lifestyle, feel free to ask me.

A Time of Transition

Hello all,

The title of this post describes the past few months of my life perfectly. I haven't been writing because a change was taking place in my life as well as within my being and I wanted to allow that to happen wholly and completely without any outside distractions. It was a beautiful process. I am now stepping into my purpose and totally happy with my new life.

At the beginning of this year, I told myself that this would be the year of "no fear". Everything that I have been afraid to do or not do in the past, I would no longer allow fear to hold me back any longer. The biggest thing is my spiritual life. I never chose the path that I was on. It was chosen for me. I decided to take a step back, analyze everything, and make a conscious decision as to the path I would travel as far as my spirituality is concerned.

My space has been shifted, my life has been rearranged, my spirit and soul have been recharged and I am a completely new being. I am so excited about the future that is ahead for me and I plan on sharing the journey of this new life with all of you. Walk with me.

Peace, Love, and Blessings.
xo, Rita

Veggie Tales: Month Two

Hello lovely ones!

I am so excited to write this post! The reason being is because when I reached my two-month mark the last time I was on a vegetarian journey, I quit. Here I am now, reaching the same place, still going strong! I am having so much fun and really enjoying myself. I just want to share a few pictures with you all to recap some of the dishes I made over the past month.

Italian Omelet w/Pesto & Veggies
LOL. This was my first omelet ever. It was a semi-fail but it tasted better than it looked.

Italian Baked Potato w/Cheese
The same ingredients used for the omelet above was used here.

Spicy Midwestern Black Bean Soup w/ Tuna Sandwich

Tuscan Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich
For the GC, I used a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella cheeses.

Southwestern Style Veggie Burger

Veggie Stir-Fry w/Noodles and Tilapia
One of my FAVORITES! I used zuchinni, red & yellow bell peppers, broccoli, and asparagus.

Vegetarian Nachos
This was definitely my second favorite of the month! So yummy!

Broccoli & Asparagus Rice Bowl

These are some of the new dishes I tried out and I can honestly say that I enjoyed them all! I'm so excited about future meal ideas! If you have any meals that you think I should try, leave a comment below or e-mail me the recipe, I would love to try it!

The Sounds of my Thoughts

My mind beckons you as my heart palpitates wildly
Just then I feel your lips caress my skin while your fingertips play with my sin
Your intellect intrigues me to tears that you wipe with your fears as I share mine
The moment of bliss arrives and I scream "I love you" in ecstasy only to open my eyes and find
You. Gone.
You're a figment of my imagination, in this life we are just friends
The puzzle pieces that make us who we are won't fit together no matter how forceful the pull
It's for the better because if I gave you what you wanted
In the end resentment would lead to hurt and you broken...
Into shards of glass the colors of rainbows
Looking pretty without but cutting deeply within...
The souls of others spreading the screams of pain to the masses.
If only I could verbalize what I feel inside to undo what has not yet been done
But these are just the sounds of my thoughts.

Veggie Tales: Month One

I am SO excited to report that I have made it through the first month of my vegetarian journey! It can only get better from here. The first three days was a struggle, but after that it's been easy sailing.

I have included a few pictures of some of the dishes that I made during this month.
