Yeah. I said it.
People who know me personally, know I rarely get sick. WELL, I have had 2 digestive issues this year from meat consumption. It is leading me back into to the vegetarian lifestyle. Like the last time, the entire transition should take a couple of months.
I was vegetarian for two years. I dropped it when I started CrossFit. During this time, I strived to eat meat once a day. I would forget to eat meat over half the time.
The Past Two Weeks:
The Good: I have successfully abstained from meat flesh. I have been using meat substitutes. So far, I like the Quorn brand of plant based chicken nuggets and hamburger meat.
At home I have stopped eating food derived from animals (chicken broth).
There were a few social settings where I simply chose to “pregame” by eating before I arrived. From there, I just ate lightly.
The Bad: My junk food intake has been high during this time period. I see how people become junk food vegetarians. There’s a lot of junk food that is vegan/vegetarian friendly.
The Challenge: I am still trying to get used to visiting the grocery store more often, meal prepping, and cooking more often.
The Plan: Eat 1 salad and 1 green smoothie daily. That seems easy right?! Meh, but I’m making it happen. I’m also backing away from the junk food. As usual, I will keep you posted!
(Proceed with caution!!!)
