At one point in my life, I was a vegetarian. It went well for about a year, but I stopped paying attention to the amount of protein I was consuming. I developed a bad sinus infection and was really struggling to recover. I ate chicken fingers to get the high levels of protein I needed to boost my immune system. Unfortunately, that was the end of my vegetarian days.
I miss being a vegetarian and I have decided to try it again. I plan to start on 1 November, so this week I will being shopping for the food staples that I will need.
I know some people will wonder why I even want to try being a vegetarian again. There are three main reasons:
- It is a personal protest against factory farming.
- I like knowing at the end of the day, an animal doesn’t have to die for me to live.
- Animals are my friends and I prefer not to eat my friends.
