Why I gave up Meat
Hello my loves.
Day two of the heatwave and today Becky decided to go for a run in the 33 degree heat.
Becky regretted it a lot. However I did set my best distance and best time.... sun must inspire me or I just knew that I wanted the drink that was in my clio.....
I'm finding running a lot easier of late.... I think this is due to the fact that my body is getting used to it.
That and I am actually enjoying it!
Although I do think that a massive factor that is helping is the change in my diet.
If you know me in real life or if you watch the Youtube channel, you will know that I have made a huge change in my life.
But it is one that I have really wanted to do for the longest time.
A couple of months ago, I was not enjoying eating... not because of any issue with food, but due to the fact that I didn't like one main ingredient on my plate. Meat.
I had always been a little bit fussy with my food. I didn't eat fish, shellfish, Lamb or most red meat. I think it kinda stems from the fact that I am naturally cautious with my food due to allergies.
I noticed that I was trying to eat everything else on the plate except the lump of meat, I'd fill myself up and give the meat to Luke or feed it to the cat.
It felt like the hardest thing in the world to approach Luke and tell him that I wanted to go vegetarian, but he was very supportive. Why should I continue to put something in my body that I didn't want there. There was no political reasons behind it, although I am an animal lover (I had never really been able to touch raw meat), I just felt like it was time to notice the signs.
I think at first he thought it was just a phase, but two months on he is making his own changes. As he is going back to the gym, he has realised the benefits of eating Quorn and more vegetables.
I'm not going to lie and say that its been an easy change but i feel so much healthier for it. I no longer feel bloated.... I have a lot more energy and I look forward to meal time now.
Yes, eating out is a trial sometimes, I've changed a lot of the places that I go to, but I am loving trying new things.
I have learnt some yummy recipes so I will share them every now and again on the blog.
I also spoke about this change in the video below:
I felt like it was time to share this here, as I like to be open and honest and it kinda acts as a mini diary when I look back.
Thanks for taking the time to read it ....
