I love animals! All of them. And I always have loved animals. I’ve always checked out if products were tested on animals to make sure they were not, because I thought it was sad and the animals deserved better. But why did I eat them??? I was so used to eating these little fragile babies because I grew up in a family where we ate meat every single day.
I loved meat. I was a true carnivore. My favorite meal is (still) pizza, and my very favorite was always the Meat lovers’ pizza. I am not kidding when I say that it was a big step to take, becoming a vegetarian.
But actually, I didn’t mind it too much. It wasn’t so hard. I expected it to be way worse. The first few weeks were the hardest. I never really had something to eat, since 90% of our fridge consists of meat. It’s still hard some times. Damn, my family loves meat. They eat fried chicken once a week. It was a struggle, the chicken still looks yummy, but I am stronger than that!
A friend of mine, also a vegetarian, once told me something that inspired me to stop eating meat. She said: ‘if you don’t want to kill it, you shouldn’t eat it.’
I get that this post is super pro-vegetarianism. There are probably so many reasons to eat meat, but it’s a decision I made for myself. I am not trying to tell you what you should and shouldn’t do, but being a vegetarian definitely made me happier!
