Making a new decision can sometimes be challenging. I completely understand. When I first decided to give up meat the hardest part was the decision. Just making up in my mind to put down the bacon for breakfast and instead to pick up the bowl of mixed fruit. When I ate the mixed fruit in the morning by noon my body and attitude were thanking me. When I had the bacon by noon I was sluggish and ready for a nap.
The difference was that one meal gave me energy and the other did not. You are what you eat and I was eating energy. Feeling good became much more important than the temporary satisfaction of a “salty pork high.”
Icing on the Cake
After preparing meals for myself everyday I realized that taste was not something that had to be sacrificed. Those same seasonings and marinades I put on my meat, could now be put on my vegetables as well. The food now had flavor and energy.
