Vacation food week continues!  From my last post:

While I have been doing more than just eating and cooking and going out, they’re mostly things I do to relax so they aren’t “new” necessarily.

Something New #56 – Skinny Bitch

In my travels last Friday I swung by one of my favorite book stores, Strand, and wandered into the health books section.  I’ve mentioned before my desires to ‘get healthy’ and lose a few pounds (and, also, a few roles coming up that require a sleeker look); but I’ve been having mixed results.  I workout all the time, have been training for the 5k, and even started going to kung fu, but I’m not really getting where I want to go which makes me think it’s what I’m cramming into my maw.

I was looking for YOU: The Owners Manual (which I picked up); but found a few other gems in the stacks.  Enter Skinny Bitch.

I bought it because I’d seen it on a few friends shelves and the women who wrote it have entertainment industry roots.  I’d heard good things; why not give it a try?

I read it in a day.  That day was Friday.

I have every intention of writing a comprehensive review to help the wana-be Skinny Bitches out there with there decision to drop the $$ on buying it, but rehearsal is coming up quickly.  What I will say in my quick blerb here is that I have spent most of my life intentionally avoiding anything about the treatment of animals in the food industry; not because I’m a bad person, but because I love meat.  I didn’t know going in that they would ease me in to a lot of PETA-approved information… and once I started I couldn’t stop.  And now that I’ve read it I can’t un-read it.

I haven’t eaten red meat since Thursday.
