I am about to embark on the biggest journey of my life. I'm going vegetarian. Almost vegan.
That's a big deal. Cutting out meat and dairy is a challenge, but I'm up for it. I might still eat the occasional burger or deviled egg, but my goal is to eat a whole food plant based diet.
Netflix has changed my life. After watching Food Inc, I stopped buying meat and eggs unless they were grass fed, pasture raised and hormone free. TED Talks taught me that we have a major sugar problem. Veducated introduced me to more problems with the way our animals are raised. Forks Over Knives convinced me that I'm ready to be a vegetarian. I've had it on my 30 before 30 list before, to go a week without meat. But it's not just meat - it's animal protein in general that I want to eliminate. I don't think it'll be too difficult for me, because I already limit my animal consumption. All I have to do is just let it go.
If I come up with any great recipes, I'll post them. For now, I'll be using ChoosingRaw.com for a lot of recipes, and I'll be researching lots of new vegetarian and vegan blogs.
I'm looking forward to this because it's not my only change. On the 23rd, I'm going a little wild and dying my hair red and pink. Pictures will be posted later!
