I’ve finally had my first a long weekend where I could relax but the down part is that the time is flying by too fast. Tomorrow it’s already of to work again and I feel that I never have time to catch up with everything I’ve planned and that the time never stretches out to be enough.
But I didn’t want to come here to complain, because I love my life and what I do and I feel really blessed. And now to another note, the thing I actually wanted to talk about.
So you may know that I had a vegetarian week last week, meaning I wouldn’t eat meat or fish for 7 days. Now I told you I would keep you updated on how it’s going but I never got around to it. So I thought I’d resume the whole week into one post. Now, I love animals, I can’t remember a year where we didn’t have a cat or dog in our house when I grew up and we still have. But it’s suddenly different when it comes to getting food for ourself so that we can survive. We’ve become blind to the fact of what’s inside our food. Most of us don’t think about the living conditions animals have so that we can eat. I believe that they have just as much right to live as we do! I’m not saying that we have to stop eating meat, because we are carnivores. The human body has survived on eating meat the last thousand years, but it’s how the food market and industry has become that make the animals suffer. It’s how they are forced to live and produce that is animal cruelty.
I’ve thought about having a vegetarian week for a long time but always said I could to it next week, or month or when ever, just not now. Well, I decided a week ago that I will see how it is to live as a vegetarian. It wasn’t that hard at first, but as the days went by I began to see that all I really ate was bread with cheese, scrambled eggs, salad or muesli with fruit. My energy level began to sink and I noticed I had to eat more meals every day or bigger portions. But it wasn’t all bad, I could see that my body was shrinking and the left over fat that your lower abs never get ride of where suddenly fading away. And now that the week is over I don’t see the need to eat as much meat as I have been and I want it to stay that way. I want it to be a pleasure and indulgent you don’t always get. With that said I want to start having a vegetarian week every other week. I don’t want to become a full on vegetarian because I feel that my body needs that protein from the meat and because I don’t eat pasta or rice anymore I don’t want to cut out every protein there is because I know it weakens the health.
But I encourage all of you to have a vegetarian week just to see that it is possible to live With out meat. It’s healthy and you’re doing something good for the animals. It’s a win-win situation and if you want some help along the way the site I’ve linked below shows you everything from the inside and also gives you good recipes for vegan or vegetarian food.
