Best Laid Plans
I was so caught up in a recent post I did on not eating fish here in Hawaii that I was sure it would not be difficult. Not! I have used my Monterey Aquarium app to tell me which fish to avoid because of overfishing, fishing methods, or high mercury content, but I've totally failed in not eating fish at all.
Sometimes we want to do the right thing, but the flesh is weak. Living in the desert, fish is something that is easy to avoid. But here, where it is so fresh, it's much harder. Not to mention most restaurants serve an abundance of many different varieties, all cooked beautifully, with nothing that I could find that was farm-raised. You would think an island would have at least a few varieties raised locally.
Have you sworn something off, only to find you couldn't stick to it?
