Last summer I found that I was rarely eating meat just by chance so I decided to use that and just become a full blown vegetarian. And by full blown I mean I still ate fish so not THAT full blown. This lasted until Thanksgiving 2010 where I just HAD to eat turkey and etc. After that I just gave in. But here we are again at the beginning of another summer and I have already found that I barely eat any red meat.
I plan to keep like that and then slowly ease out my chicken intake and try the vegetarian thing again. Why you ask? I'd like to answer that with something to do with animal rights or even dietary restrictions or something but to be honest, it's really only because I feel healthier when I do it. I hate the feeling of having a big piece of meat or burger or whatever and feeling like I'm going to explode at either end at any minute (sorry for that picture). I like the fact that I can eat smaller portions more throughout the day without stuffing myself completely full and just feeling comfortable.
The only other thing is that I feel like such an inconvenience to my parents, friends and whomever I am eating with when they would need to prepare an entire different meal option for me. That's the tricky part. I'm not a picky eater in the least so I don't like being such a problem in food area. And that is why it's pretty hard to just become a vege head.
My rant for the day.
