Despite finding it easy to skip out on meat and fish in the last six weeks, I'm still having a hard time coming up with any inspiration to make meals in general, and I've been feeling generally tired and lethargic lately. I've basically just been subsisting on a lot of fried eggs on toast and Tim's bagels.

I don't know if my feeling down is diet-related or simply psychological (the weather here is still not what any sane person would call spring, plus I'm still dealing with daily back pain), but I've been sleeping about 12 hours a night, can't get to sleep until the wee hours, and generally have a feeling of something missing. Maybe I'm anemic. According to FitDay.com, vegetarians are often deficient in iron, as well as calcium, protein, vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids.
Since I started this no-meat experiment I've been taking supplements to cover my bases, but maybe I'm still not getting enough of or even missing something in my diet.

What's a vegetarian to do?
