Meat is a beautiful thing. All my favourite dishes (with the exclusion of cheese plates and desserts) include some form of meat on it. I eat so much of it that I thought I should go vegetarian for a while due to possible health problems in the future and to reduce my carbon foot print a little. Little known fact. I was vegetarian for a while last year and eventually I got used to it and you come out a lot healthier. Needless to say throughout the three months, I had a couple of cheat days (three to be specific) but I think I'm going to try again next year.
I love the new (or rather old now) food truck revolution. It's a fantastic concept borrowed from America that almost always promises quick, easy and accessible food. The savvy diner will have undoubtedly found out which is their favourite and then proceed to stalk its movements, night and day. Sydney Uni seems to be the hotspot for food trucks these days so all that stalking isn't necessary and I'm thinking it's better to take advantage of that while it lasts. Wednesday noons bring down the Veggie Patch Van which I've never been able to catch for a while until now.
It's an attractive truck; complete with a green and brown paint job, sage and thyme plot plants as well as a few others and it reminds me of a backyard tin shed on wheels. There's a fair few things to choose from, probably the most expansive of all the food trucks and they're all written in chalk.

Knowing this truck existed would have made going vego sooooo much easier. During that whole time period it was pretty much Weetbix for breakfast, salad with nuts for lunch, salad with nuts for dinner... Yeah... I lead a riveting lifestyle. I really have to learn how to cook. Unshaven hippies rejoice, you've got a good thing going for you. Thank you veggie patch team. You've shown me vegan food really can be great. Some things aside, I forgot cheese and milk and butter and eggs and pretty much everything else I like... let alone meat even existed that day.
