Switching to Vegetarian

Grocery-Veggies-Stockpile

My family of six have decided to go vegetarian.  We are on day 2 and so far, everything has been great!  I stocked up on the weekend with many fruits and vegetables as well as nuts, milk, yogurt and healthy snacks.

What started this?  Well, we have always tried to eat clean but what began the thinking was a few weeks ago, there was a report in the news about factory workers at a turkey factory abusing the animals and it was caught on video.  I was so upset and flabbergasted by this that my immediate thought was that I am finished eating meat and I could not support that.  A day or two after, my family and I watched a show on Netflix about going vegan and it was a story about a woman going through her journey and visiting the meat plants. Needless to say, we all decided that day, that we were going to stop eating meat.

I did my searching on the internet for vegetarian meal ideas and even asked friends on Facebook for some ideas.  I came up with a weekly meal plan. With all of the vegetables I bought, we will need to ensure we eat them up before they go bad.  Other than one of my six-year-old daughters who is going to miss chicken fingers, everyone is very excited for this eating lifestyle.

Some people say that when you take meat out of your diet, you will be healthier while others say that we are human and are meant to eat meat.  In either case, everyone has their own thoughts which is completely fine.

I am very excited about this new change and I will share with you in the future how things are going and if I notice any health benefits and/or have a craving for meat.  Like I said earlier, it is only day 2 but awesome so far!

  1. Congratulations on Day 2!! I stopped eating meat just over 3 years ago and haven’t had one regret. I haven’t desired or missed it at all and am loving the energy and radiance I feel on all levels.
    It’s so amazing that your whole family is on board! I’m cheering you all on. 🙂
