Hello World Wide Web of beautiful people.
For three years now I have been slowly cutting meat out of my daily diet. Even though I still get tempted to have a McDonald hambrger, I can now claim the vegetarian title. Except on thanksgiving, that’s too much. 😉 In the past year I have been able to make vegetarian meals for my family and myself, which I’m extremely proud of . Since it’s summer time I’ve been craving a burger or a hotdog at cookouts. Fortunately thanks to the internet there is always a vegetarian option and alternative.
It’s been really hard to not eat meat in the past two years. Fortunately my family has been really supportive, which makes meat less tempting .
I have noticed certain changes about myself. For instance, my senses of smell have become extremely sensitive to certain meats and unpleasant fragrances. It has gotten to the point where I am nauseous at the smell of bacon.
That’s not why I’m writing this. I guess I’m writing this for me. So I can finally put the reason why the change of diet into words.
My family’s health has become a concern after my dad became an Insanity instructor. We have cut a lot of processed food out of our lives. Because we would read articles about how “such ‘n such” could cause cancer. When we moved to Italy, I saw how clean the Italians ate and I wondered why is America so accepting of all this junky, greasy food that won’t spoil for weeks or maybe even months. Where as it for the Italian’s food would spoil in a couple a days.
People would ask me why. Why are you switching? Why are you giving up meat? As if it’s inhuman. This in fact is I didn’t give up meat. I gave up the thought of greasy, fatty foods as normal, because it’s not.
I’m not saying I’m never going to eat at McDonalds ever again or having a slice of pizza. Seeing it’s 2016, and the idea of having no time to make healthy meals has been sold to this generation and the next. At least I know now.
