So I have been a vegetarian for approximately 22 days now, but it isn’t the first time I have given up meat. For 4 years in total I didn’t eat meat, ending that phase of my life in 2013.
Experts say it takes 31 days to break a habit, but so far I’ve not had any meat cravings at all. As humans we rely too much on meat as a food source, some people even eat meat with every meal.
For health reasons, everyone should have at least two days free of meat per week, especially because the more popular meats such as beef and pork are quite fatty. I have lost 6lbs since turning into a vegetarian and I don’t regret my decision at all.
I am really enjoying this journey, learning new recipes, eating more salads and creating new vegetarian meals. I can see myself lasting with this plan for many years to come.
It helps with my addiction to sweets too, because now that I can’t eat every type, I find myself not eating them. I find myself trying to replace these sugars with natural ones.
If anyone wants to try being a vegetarian, or to swap recipes and tips, please feel free to leave a comment! I’d love to get to know you all 🙂
