I ve gone more and more off meat in the last few years. First, red meat and pork, and now all meats. I try and eat at least one vegan meal a day.
It started because of stomach issues and finding I really felt bad after eating meat. I also have a problem with how the meat industry treats animals. I have changed my milk to soy or almond, and am looking at getting a couple of chickens for eggs. Cheese and butter is the hardest for me not to eat.
I have found in the last month (I started in Sept) my stomach feels better, and (I know this sounds weird) I feel lighter and cleaner inside.
Mr. is not really happy about it, but as long as he gets his meat he more or less leaves me alone. I still think he is trying to get me out of this because he'll cook too much bacon and offer me some. What he doesn't know is I don't crave it, so it is not an issue.
Once I conquer this, I'm going to work on going to the gym, going more raw (the 70 year old woman who eats a raw diet was on a show I saw, she looks 35, so this one is the vanity in my coming out), cut out alcohol etc....I feel like this one decision has put me on a different path
All you vegans\veggies here what made you go in this direction, and what changes, if any, have you found in your life?
