Meat… why can’t I let you go?
Yesterday, I tried to not eat any meat or dairy products but by dinner I was craving meat and I gave in to my cravings.
I grew up in a region where cattle is one of the biggest business, the mass production of beef in that region means that I ate A LOT of beef.
I don’t know why but I get sick (throwing up and all those unpleasant things) if I substitute beef with chicken or fish. If I don’t eat meat then I get extremely hungry…. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not eating a steak every night for dinner.. Out of 7 dinners, I usually eat beef 4 times a week. The type of beef I eat is ground or fast frying beef which is really thin.
Now that you know the background on my meat eating ways.. let me tell you what happened yesterday….
I woke up, drank some water and had half a clementine. For breakfast I had Colombian hot chocolate without milk, toast and fruits. So far I was content with how the day was going.
For lunch I had an apple with some water…
but dinner was my downfall. I made “Quesalagna” which is a baked.. two layers of tortillas, with marble cheese and pulled chicken..
I saw the end product and … I said enough.. I’m eating this!
The good news is that I’m sticking to my portion control lifestyle plan.
Since I watched the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.. I started to question my eating habits. After watching the documentary on Netflix, I watched some other documentaries and I have slowly but surely changed my eating habits.
My goal is to one day become vegan. It isn’t an easy transition but I have improve a bit. When I was a teen, I would eat 2 hamburgers a day…. not my proudest moments..
I might not have gone the whole day without eating meat or dairy but I did prove to my self that is not impossible.
I would like to acknowledge all the vegan and vegetarian people in the world. I admire all of you.
