The Time I Tried To Go Vegan ??

Image of the Food I did NOT eat ?

I would consider myself somewhere between athletic and slim fat. A flexitarian who eats primarily poultry and fish, more health-conscious, one who avoids pork and beef.

I watch cute videos of cows playing catch and have even volunteered to work at a Pig Show with hundreds of little oinkers. Cows and Pigs have the intelligence of cats and dogs, can be domesticated, and yet we don’t eat them the same, at least in this country.

Don’t get me wrong, no shame to those who do indulge in meat, but the guilt overwhelms me sometimes and I opt for more vegetarian/vegan dishes a vast majority of the time. Now, when it comes to eating I opt for poultry and the type of fish that are the least intelligent.

Since about 12, I have been allergic (not deathly) to mostly fruits so vegetables and I have had a very close relationship for some time. I may have a slight reaction to fruit-infused smoothies but it’s always worth the irritation when it’s so good!

So back to the Topic. I was becoming more sensitive to foods (dairy and meat). I wanted to eat healthily and had my very last 1/4 lb burger which I ended throwing up at a restaurant. At the time I was 40% Vegetarian, it was going well and I wanted to push myself further. I was in decent shape (skinny, no muscle) and had rid myself of frequent fast food trips. Vegan, why not? It seemed easy at first, but back in 2011, it was HARD to go out and find options as easy as today. So I ended up have bland meals and never feeling satisfied. By week 3 I had literal dreams of chickens dancing with me. I could smell their fresh chicken-scented cologne and woke up thinking, I can’t really do Vegan. By week 4 I had chicken pasta.

I also opted to not have constraints over what I eat. If I am out with friends and they are having bomb steak, I’m probably going to want a “small” piece of that. It doesn’t happen often and it’s usually just as good as they describe it to be. I just can’t eat a whole steak and feel good physically about it the next day.

I am at an age that recognizes and accepts the fact that excessive consumption of meat will age your body faster than a vegan. So I will be right in the middle more leaning towards the vegan spectrum of things. Cheers to life and especially those who are fully committed to Veganism, also big shout to those that are not. It’s your life! ?

  1. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if
    you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    mind before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?


    1. Hey there!
      First and foremost, thank you so much for taking the time out to read my blog! It means a lot. I am creative and expressive so writing in general is quite relaxing to me. I actually just write what’s on my mind. I then save it as a draft and come back to it later for proofreading and fine-tuning the sentence structure. Find what you really like to write about it and just go for it. Get a friend to look over it and give you feedback as well. And remember, you don’t have to post it right away. Take some time to reflect.

  2. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently
    about. Now i’m very happy I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    1. I have always been a creative writer. I just mustered up the courage to get my thoughts online. Plus I don’t have to worry about my handwriting when I type 🙂 I appreciate your kind feedback. Thank You!

  3. Your style is really unique in comparison to other people I have read stuff from.
    Thank you for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I’ll just
    bookmark this page.

  4. You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I to find this topic to be
    actually one thing that I feel I’d never understand.

    It kind of feels too complicated and very large
    for me. I am looking forward to your next post, I will try to get the dangle of it!

  5. Pretty nice post. I simply stumbled upon your weblog
    and wanted to say that I have truly enjoyed surfing around your blog posts.
    In any case I will be subscribing to your feed and I’m hoping you write
    again very soon!

  6. This is very fascinating, You are an overly professional blogger.
    I have joined your feed and sit up for in quest
    of more of your magnificent post. Additionally, I have shared your website in my social networks

  7. Hi! I’ve been reading your web site for some time
    now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from
    Houston Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the good work!

  8. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  9. Hi there! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came
    to give it a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m bookmarking and
    will be tweeting this to my followers! Great blog and superb design and style.

    1. Wow! I can’t believe it’s getting around that far 🙂 I used Myspace back in the day after Sconex was obsolete. I will continue to write if you continue to read. Actually I will write regardless, I truly enjoy it!

  10. After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment
    is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment.
    There has to be a way you can remove me from that service?

    1. I’m not a tech guru but you should be able to remove notifications. Funny, I got the same thing with constant replies on a Reddit post I responded to. Hopefully, you can get it sorted quickly though!!

  11. Hi! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading through your
    blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the great work!

  12. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. However think of if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this site could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field.

    Great blog!

  13. Howdy, I do think your web site may be having web browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however,
    if opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to
    give you a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful site!

  14. I was recommended this blog by my cousin. I’m not sure
    whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble.
    You’re incredible! Thanks!

  15. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking
    and checking back frequently!
