October is Vegetarian Awareness Month!
I’m not sure if you recall but I gave up meat (minus fish) on my birthday April 1st this year. I can’t believe it’s been over 6 months that I haven’t had meat. It’s my understanding I’m considered a Pescatarian but I wanted to talk a bit about being a vegetarian and why I chose to eat this way. My number one reason was to eat healthier for weight loss plus I had been reading horrific stories of how animals are being treated as they prepare to go to slaughter and since I love animals, I really wanted to try to change my lifestyle. I wanted to eat less processed foods which means more vegetables, legumes and fruit. As I said, I am not yet a full vegetarian but I sure feel that I am on my way. People can really be nasty when it comes to the food choices people make and all I have to say about that is don’t listen to them. You will know what is right for you when it’s right for you!
