My debut Foodie Report posting

Thanks, Nicci, for that warm welcome to the Foodie Report. I start my blogging with a confession: As my bio says, I'm a veggie lover, a whole-grains enthusiast, a soy devotee. I heart tofu in every shape and form. My veggie-tofu curry recipe is even this week's CiN Cook column. But... this health freak has been on a fat and sugar bender this week. I blame my upcoming vacation. I'm going to Paris and Morocco for a week each. I'm going with my sister, and it's her first time overseas. In anticipation of pain au chocolat, Nutella-filled crepes and all those rich dishes, I think my stomach needed to be prepared.
No one starves in our office, and today I've indulged in belated frosted Easter cookies and a chocolate cupcake with fat-free ice cream.
In the future, expect posts about the joy of soy, but today all I can think about is sugar, chocolate and all those baguettes in my future!

I think it will be great to get a veggie's perspective on local dining and food exploration. I'm not a vegetarian myself, but I try not to eat too much meat and always find it challenging to find good non-meat entrees at local eateries (except for Melt and Myra's of course). On a related note, are you ever concerned about eating too much soy?

Should I be? I do try to eat a fairly diverse diet, but it does include a lot of soy. I'll have to investigate and get back to you!
