I actually went an entire day on a vegetarian diet. Today I had oatmeal for breakfast. I have had to think why am I doing this. Well, for one its an ethics issue, for two meat byproduct, environmental exposure and general fat levels in meat is just about insane. I have been eating it for years but for some time now its been high salt cheaper meats and I don't get enough fruits And veggies. Hopefully this will help. Like I said, how long it lasts, where it goes, its hard to say. Its an experiment with no stress. Its a time to explore new food options, better health and hopefully a lifestyle change.
I don't have to give up caffeine, my favorite breads, dairy or other assorted foods. And I won't have to worry about refrigeration. Besides that I love pb, soy and the like. Plus fast food will be cut down. I will still eat fish for a while as I don't want to cut out to much and I haven't made a final draw yet, but poutry and red meats are out at this point.
Please note I am not bashing farms who make meat responsibly, I am endorsing each person to make a decision if this could be an option for you, not pushing nor shoving my choice a yours.
