The Vegetarian Hunter Gets Arrows

It is not easy to be a vegetarian trying to avoid gluten in Europe. Or most any country except Thailand and Costa Rica. Mostly all I can find as vegetarian entrees are cheese and bread/noodles/potatoes. I've been living on nuts, energy bars and protein powder with an occasional yogurt and eggs (and thanks to my sister Janet, I brought a bunch of Soy sticks). I was so thrilled to find a little restauant in Kiel that had white beans and salad. As I ate the wonderful salad my neighbors at the next table said "Germany is warning everyone: don't eat raw vegetables!!!" There is an outbreak of a new strain of E.coli that has infected over 1000 and killed 18 people in Europe, most of them in Northern Germany.

So here I am in Slovenia now and was so happy to find a health food store and a vegan fast food stand. So got some tofu (gold) and then found a salad with pine nuts (diamonds!). But I feel like a hunter each time I go out looking - of course all the menus are in other languages so that makes it harder. I think this is south enough not to worry about the salad I ate today. And it has been a few days since eating in Northern Germany and I feel terrific...

Tomorrow the hunter rises again...searching for protein in Europe. Don't think I'll visit the "Horse House" restaurant in Ljubljana, Slovenia...they serve horse meat sandwiches.
If I could just lay off the chocolate I'd lose a few pounds on this trip :-).
