Why I’ve Gone Green…๐Ÿฎโ˜˜๏ธ๐Ÿ–๐ŸŒฑ

Sooooo I’ve made a huge lifestyle change and turned vegetarian. Now don’t panic! I’m not writing this to try and convert you or make you feel guilty. This is simply to share my experience, thoughts and feelings with you guys. I’ve actually held back writing this post and told no one of my decision because there’s always a lot of controversy when it comes to things like this but here we go…

So, why did I go vegetarian?

I’ve always been an animal lover. They have been a huge part of my life ever since I was a child and always have and will be my passion. I grew up with them. I’ve studied them academically. I’ve worked with them – everything. So why on earth would I eat them?!

D E N I A L.

I’m ashamed to admit it but the reason this came to light was because of this image I saw on Instagram.

I’d always been funny about meat – it sounds silly but I would imagine it as a product that came from the ground and push the real reasons to the back of my mind. But this REALLY hit home for me. All my life I have done what I can to help save our planets animals and this made me realise what a hypocrite I personally had been.

So after endless hours of crying and uncontrollable sobbing I made the decision to cut the meat there and then. I knew that I’d ate meat for so long because I only saw the finished product in its packaging. I never saw what it comes from or how it got there. What I’m trying to say is that I ate meat because I – like most people have never seen an animal be killed and prepared for human consumption. If I had witnessed it and saw what I was contributing too I would have turned veggie a long time ago.

BURGERS ๐Ÿ” –being veggie means I can still enjoy all da foodz I love and it makes both my heart and stomach happy

I’ve been vegetarian for over a month now and honestly for me, its the best decision I’ve made. I feel better in myself both physically and mentally. I haven’t missed meat at all and there are so many delicious recipes and substitutes out there to try! (seriously Quorn chicken meat free pieces are da bomb). I hope someone has gained something with this post. If you’re thinking about going veggie I’d definitely go for it if it’s something you care about. I’m don’t know why it took me so long to make this decision but I’m so glad I made this lifestyle change a permanent one.

  3. I can completely understand where you are coming from! I am a former vegetarian (I love animals) and would happily have remained so were it not for health problems at the time. I am now married to a carnivore so we compromise and eat meat-free several times a week. One day I’d like to go back to being fully veggie again. Well done to you and keep up the good work!

  4. Woo! Iโ€™ve started being veggie as a dare when I was 12/13, 10 years on and I still love it. Meat production is terrible for the environment and if you have brothers like mine who eat meat in every meal, itโ€™s actually bad for you.
    Well done and keep it up!

    I am vegetarian too and I agree it is the best decision to make! I also love Quorn, but they are a bit pricey here in Denmark, but there are plenty of other alternatives!

  7. I am a firm believer you have to do what works for you. At the end of the day when you look in the mirror you have to like (mostly!!) who you see. Well done bringing in-line your beliefs / life.
