Goodbye Veggies

A journey through a diet change

After Thoughts

As of today I have eaten meat, though I wouldn’t necessarily call myself much of an omnivore yet.

Though what I have eaten so far has been good to me as far as not upsetting my digestive system and I still believe that meat will be a good addition to my diet for the reasons I discussed in my previous post But Why Goodbye?, I can’t say I’m as excited about this transition as I was prior to actually committing to it.

I certainly don’t regret the decision to change my diet for the future and still plan to continue to eat meat. I feel as though I will perhaps be more excited about the change once I am more comfortable eating meat in larger quantities and on a more regular basis. There are a multitude of exciting recipes I’ve been wanting to try which I will share at the bottom of this post. As of now, I am still in the slow process of transitioning and will continue to post updates as I see important changes happening.

Recipes I am curious to try:

If and when I try these recipes, I will be sure to post reviews on how they are and how my body reacts to them.




The Second Step

In the last 8 years that I have been a vegetarian, I’ve noticed that the world has erupted into an absolute bacon craze. People are fanatic about bacon. I remember bacon being quite tasty before I was a vegetarian, but I have been under the guise that it must have gotten better in the past decade. Why else would people be wearing bacon pants and eating bacon icecream and other such strange wonders?

Today there was some bacon cooked up with our dinner. So, I decided to try a piece.  Sure, it was tasty. But it was not the fireworks explosion of mouth joy that everyone seems to play it up as. Once again I did not feel ill afterwards though, so that is a big plus!

At the very least I feel a little accomplished that I have now eaten two different types of meat without any issue. I may not quite understand the bacon craze in it’s entirety, but I suppose I can at least participate in eating it now.

Bacon baby formula… really?


But Why Goodbye?

As of March of this year, I have been living a vegetarian lifestyle for eight years. Two of those years were spent as a vegan and large supporter of animal rights. People have continually told me that I would end up giving up my vegetarian lifestyle and such conversations usually led to fights. Unfortunately (for me), I must admit that those people were right.

I have decided to begin to eat meat for two basic reasons:

  1. I am completely bored of my diet. I am rarely enthused to eat a meal unless it is a completely unhealthy fast food type of meal. Lately, the idea of eating meat has seemed much, much more appetizing than continuing eating what I have been eating for the last near-decade.
  2. I am getting to the point in my life where I have to start making decisions for more people than just myself. I worry that my future children will grow up confused by their mother’s eating habits and that there is potential that they will decide to make dietary changes that may not benefit them.

With that said, I will be attempting to add meat – very slowly – back into my diet, and will be reporting my progress as I do. This doesn’t mean that I no longer support animal rights, but I choose now to support them in different ways.
