After I was in center faculty, I went vegetarian for about three years. I made this resolution for 2 crucial causes: First, my greatest pal grew to become a vegetarian, and I assumed she was actually cool (nonetheless do). Second, I learn someplace that Drew Barrymore was a vegetarian, and I additionally thought she was actually cool (nonetheless do as effectively). Clearly, this was a effectively thought out, values primarily based resolution.
As I’d have stated in center faculty….NOT!
My “vegetarianism” lasted a number of years. I exploit quotations as a result of I wasn’t fairly vegetarian. As you may think, somebody making the choice for such flippant causes was not precisely strict together with her eating regimen. I’d typically sneak downstairs at night time, stealing leftover bits of sesame rooster from the fridge, attempting to see how a lot I may get away with consuming with out anybody noticing.
Now that I am an grownup, I do nonetheless eat lots of vegetarian meals. It’s for a lot of causes, however principally as a result of I take pleasure in lots of vegetarian dishes. Nonetheless, I additionally love issues like roasted rooster, spicy sausage and peppers, and something with prosciutto. So, I meat too. At the moment, I don’t label my eating regimen, or comply with any meals guidelines. I’ve discovered that I can greatest honor my style preferences, values/ethics, vitamin wants, and time availability by making meals selections decision-by-decision fairly than setting a rule for myself.
