After I was in center faculty, I went vegetarian for about three years. I made this choice for 2 crucial causes: First, my greatest buddy turned a vegetarian, and I assumed she was actually cool (nonetheless do). Second, I learn someplace that Drew Barrymore was a vegetarian, and I additionally thought she was actually cool (nonetheless do as nicely). Clearly, this was a nicely thought out, values based mostly choice.
As I’d have stated in center faculty….NOT!
My “vegetarianism” lasted just a few years. I exploit quotations as a result of I wasn’t fairly vegetarian. As you may think, somebody making the choice for such flippant causes was not precisely strict along with her weight loss program. I’d usually sneak downstairs at night time, stealing leftover bits of sesame hen from the fridge, attempting to see how a lot I may get away with consuming with out anybody noticing.
Now that I am an grownup, I do nonetheless eat numerous vegetarian meals. It’s for a lot of causes, however principally as a result of I take pleasure in numerous vegetarian dishes. Nevertheless, I additionally love issues like roasted hen, spicy sausage and peppers, and something with prosciutto. So, I meat too. In the present day, I don’t label my weight loss program, or comply with any meals guidelines. I’ve realized that I can greatest honor my style preferences, values/ethics, diet wants, and time availability by making meals decisions decision-by-decision slightly than setting a rule for myself.
