I decided to make a change in my life and cut out meat. It’s over three months when I’m on my vegetarian diet. I feel quite good and I can’t say I miss the meat. There are so many alternatives for it that I didn’t realise until I start my vegetarian journey. Why did I decide to do that?
Lately, I didn’t feel healthy. I had a headache all the time and feel tired and exhausted. So I knew I need to change something. I decided to focus on my diet. Which wasn’t so bad in my opinion because I always tried to eat healthily. After some research, I thought I will try a vegetarian diet. I knew it shouldn’t be a big problem for me because meat never been on a first-place on my plate. Mostly I tried chicken breasts. The rest could not exist for me.
I only needed some recipes to make my meals more varied. Now I eat more fruits and vegetables, sandwiches with avocado pasta or hummus. To be honest I didn’t know that veggie pasta can be so nice and delicious. Before I thought hummus will be not eatable for me but it’s a hit! Especially one made from the red pepper.
What are the health benefits of a vegetarian diet?
- Decreases asthma symptoms
- Promotes bone health
- Reduces cancer risk
- Good for heart health
- Prevents type 2 diabetes
All those benefits are very important for me especially the first one because I struggle with my asthma. I really looking forward to seeing how a vegetarian diet will affect my health. I hope to see some really good results. I will definitely take some blood tests after a few months and will let you know if something will change for the better.
But the diet is not the only thing I wanted to change. I also decided to use cosmetics which are cruelty-free and definitely not tested on animals. I feel so much better with that and I know I do something which is good for our environment.
I will be definitely sharing with you my new vegetarian/vegan recipes and cruelty-free cosmetics that work for me.
