Vegetarian Encounters at Subway

 Whew! These past few weeks have been busy, and in a good way. 2012 def seems to be off to a great start. Because of my extreme business, I have been eating 25% of meals on the go, and this evening was one of those nights. 

I ventured into Subway starving and ready for my go-to sandwich, a veggie patty on their honey oat bread. I decided to go for a footlong, as I was going to be sharing the sandwich with Lauren.

Well, here is the awesome part of tonight! A very nice young woman, who introduced herself later as Cher, (I hope I am spelling your name correctly if you’re reading!!) was ahead of me, and took notice of my choice to opt for a veggie patty and became inspired to switch out her turkey slices for a vegetarian alternative! She and I began talking about how yummy the vegetarian patty was and she told me she had been a vegetarian for ten years before recently transitioning back to meat. 

I figured what a great opportunity to tell her about the blog!  Cher told me she may consider going back to a vegetarian lifestyle and of course, this made my day and perked up my night.

I hope you’re reading Cher! 

Btw everyone, here is how I do my Subway veggie sub:

Honey Oat Bread

Veggie Patty

Swiss Cheese

^^Toast the above

Now request spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, pickles, and avocado. Garnish with oregano, black pepper and a bit of parmasean cheese. For dressings, Lauren and I like a bit of spicy mustard, sweet onion sauce and a dribble of red wine vinegar.

After transitioning to a meatless diet two years ago, Lauren and I had no choice but to learn lots of great vegetarian recipes---and fast---after all, we always loved great food. The reason for our decision to omit meat and most dairy products from our lives was quite simple. A vegetarian diet is healthier, kinder, and ironically much cheaper than one with meat. We created this website to show that being a vegetarian is one of the easiest and most rewarding lifestyles to partake in, and hope that both vegetarians and aspiring vegetarians alike will visit Go-Vegetarianista habitually. :) About the authors: Nadya Rousseau is an actor/writer/producer residing in Beverly Hills, CA. She moved to Los Angeles almost five years ago at the age of nineteen to pursue her career and to escape the boredom of her small town. As maintaining a svelte figure is often pivotal in the entertainment industry, she finds she has no trouble staying slim and healthy as a vegetarian. In addition to loving good food and helping others, she enjoys engaging in sarcastic banter--keep an eye out for her frequent sardonic jokes--you'll surely be amused!! Lauren Rheims, is a native of Pomona, CA, and now resides in Beverly Hills, CA. She is a fashion and nature photographer, and of course loves shooting pictures of super yummy food! Lauren at first was apprehensive about becoming vegetarian, being of Creole descent, enjoying delicious seafood and meat, was more or less second nature. However after she discovered just how easy it was to enjoy the same delectable meals sans meat, she was thrilled! Lauren is excited to show everyone the simplicity and allure of vegetarian fare--and just how fun it can be!
