It’s been almost 2 years since I started my Vegetarian journey. At first I was pescatarian, I still ate seafood. Then one day last year I asked someone if they think fish had feelings and they said yes. So I stopped eating fish and never looked back.
The thing that separates me from being vegan is CHEESE. It’s the only dairy I eat. I’m doing the best I can though. I don’t drink milk or eat eggs. I’m not a fan of soy yogurt so I just don’t eat yogurt.
Last year was the first time I had almond nog instead of egg nog. It was delicious. Ok
Y’all, I have to say that becoming vegetarian was incredibly easy for me. I thought it was going to be hard but literally one day I just saw animals as being similar to humans and felt they should have the same rights as humans. After that it was never difficult for me not to eat them.
I lead a very lazy lifestyle. I do not cook AT ALL. I have eaten this way for a long time. I hate cooking and being in kitchens do something harmful to me mentally (I have mental disabilities) so I try to stay away from them as much as possible. (I have the same issue with bathrooms by the way, which is why I have a housekeeper). So most of my meals are microwave except for the pre-made salads that I buy from the grocery store. My weekly grocery budget is $75. I eat such a huge variety of food. I eat something delicious and different every day. It’s amazing how many vegetarian microwave meals are out there now.
My only issues with being vegetarian is my blood work shows I am deficient in iron and vitamin D. So I take supplements for that.
For my New Years Resolution this year I gave up sugar and alcohol for the year. Alcohol I will revisit next year. I will never eat dessert again though. I’ve found that if I could change to becoming vegetarian it wouldn’t be so hard to transform my diet to be healthier.
I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 years since I have eaten meat.
