We all want to better ourselves. There’s always something new to aspire to or an area of personal development for which we strive. I feel like it is something new each day. As someone who is passionate about holistic wellness, I believe in exercising the mind, body, and soul, and feeding oneself with knowledge, healthy food, and love, respectively. Sometimes I’m good at it. Other times I am not. But each day I work towards this lifestyle.
Recently, I was following some tweets about a vegan conference. The participants tied veganism into a whole range of social justice issues, which I definitely align with. However, making the jump to a completely vegan diet sounds a bit scary to me right now. I would need to do a lot of research to ensure that I am still getting the protein I need. In the meantime I have decided to ease into it by going vegetarian. I would say I don’t eat meat about 2-3 days a week, so this seems like a less scary approach. While I made the decision today, I realized I hadn’t eaten meat since May 30. But for the purpose of this, my no meat start date will be June 1. I definitely need to do research to make sure i’m getting complete proteins everyday. As someone who is fairly active, I know my muscles need to be fed well :).
I plan to blog my journey, as telling the world usually helps me hold myself accountable.
