Today is Friday and I have not had any red meat for 12 days and frankly can’t feel any difference in well being, yet, but I do eat more filling foods and my conscious is getting clearer. Not towards plants but towards knowing what I eat. I know a lot of vegans are vegans due to animal care but for me I love all living things, even the tiny little leaf falling of the tree so if I do not eat meat I have to eat more of the veggie stuff or end up starving to death, so on that point its komsi komsa. But keeping more attentive to your food when you choose it, cook it, eat it and digest it makes a closer bonding to nature than anything.
I don’t believe in casting shame and guilt or speaking out loud of your discussed of others due to their choices as long as they have done them out of their best, I do believe in speaking up about the choices themselves though if and when I find they haven’t been clear or are hurtful.
Advice and helpfulness, oh yes, and a bit of humour will save this world and make it more balanced .
Anyway, from Monday no wheat again, and that I know from experience makes a difference.
I wont go back to eating read meat, quite happy not to so why bother.
I have been questioned as of why I change my diet bit by bit and so slowly why not cold turkey on all. Well if that’s what I believe would have worked for me then that’s what I would have chosen. I love food and I am a sucker for throwing myself in to what I feel like so if I would have changed my diet abruptly I would not have kept it as part of me. By making new pathways it will sustain and changes are fully integrated.
When I quit smoking a bit more than 14 years ago, I went cold and of within a week. Didn’t touch a cigarette for about two years and certainly did not use any alternatives ( what would be the point?).
And even then it was because I felt like seeing how I stood by it. Really it was of no interest. Someone (yes a non smoker who’d never tried it ) said two years following that Ones a smoker always a smoker. B-locks to that I thought and tried some to see if it might be true but you know what, its b-tish coming from non-smokers or people who hasn’t quit properly. I have no interest in ever becoming a smoker again, it sucks one could say LOL…
Anyway I question pretty much everything, turn it inside out and angles it around. Some people makes the mistake of judging that but that’s their loss. Their loss of missing seeing what new angle was given to them to explore.
Today is a beautiful Friday, some is not enjoying it due to terrible and unexpected events. But you hang in their, your beautiful day will come too and for the rest of us -Lets enjoy ours, whilst we have it
