Why I Chose to Become a Vegetarian
vegetarian: a person who does not eat meat, and sometimes other animal products, especially for moral, religious, or health reasons.
No, it wasn’t because I watched What The Health! (kinda) I decided to become a vegetarian because it honestly makes me feel better. Before fully committing in becoming a vegetarian I would challenge myself every few often not to eat meat. Whether it be for a week or a month, typically to see how my body would react. Every time I did so I would lose weight, my skin would get clearer, and I would have more energy in that short time-span. But once I stopped the challenge I would go back to eating meat, which caused my body to be like wyd sis.
So far I have learned that being a vegetarian is a learning process. I have a problem with mindless eating, but a vegetarian really helps me zone in on my health goals and eating habits. You must do research about what your body needs to have energy and function properly. If you’re like me, you get tired of eating the same things over and over again so I have to look up new recipes to try (Pinterest is lit tbh). You must deal with people giving you the side eye when you tell them that you don’t eat meat. People think that it hard being a vegetarian but you can honesty make it your own, there are no real rules to it.
I try not shove my lifestyle down anyone’s throat because people have the right to do what they want to do but I will give you some friendly tips on what you should put in your body. I just want people to realize health is wealth and it shouldn’t be taken lightly.
