Hi Guys !
I haven't written in a while because I had lots of things to do. First of all I submitted my form for the Erasmus exchange. I was thinking and re-thinking what my Top 3 destinations should be. In the end I chose two universities in the UK and one in Ireland, so all I need to do now is pass all my exams, which sounds easier than it actually is. Wish me good luck !
Today we're November 20th! Which means I haven't been eating meat for 20 days now!
There are different types of being a Vegetarian, but I chose to be a Pescetarian, which means that I do eat fish.
I don't know what I can say about it. I think you should feel it. I have been eating less meat since 6 years, but every year the portions became smaller. That's why I decided to give it a try and live without meat for a while. I don't promise anyone that I won't eat meat ever again, but I will try not to during November and afterwards we'll see. The good part is that I don't have any strange cravings. Except for chocolate, but I had that before too, so you shouldn't be worried.
The reaction of others ? They were surprised of course. My mom started to give me a speech about iron as I often have an iron deficiency, while my friends didn't quite understand why. Especially the guys who kept on repeating : "Oh, I can't do it. My body REALLY needs meat." Hahaha, that's a typical male answer.
What is my opinion? We're living in the 21st century, right? So believe me, you won't starve while not eating meat. There are so many substitutes for meat, like tofu, hummus, soy, cheese or even soy-cheese! Besides, there are so many delicious Italian dishes without meat or Asian dishes without meat. So let's be honest, it's just a habit on which everyone can work if they put some effort into it.
In real life, I am not one of those annoying people trying to convince others to become a vegetarian, but I think eating meat like twice a day is not necessary and even unhealthy. Which means 1-0 for me :)
I wish y'all the absolute best, eat cake 'cause it's Clifford's birthday !
