So, we’re caught up-ish, or at least caught up enough with everything else on the blog, that I’m gonna start posting vegan/vegetarian challenge thoughts every Friday again (until they’re all out of my drafts folder)…
But it’s a little weird ’cause it’s kind of going backwards now. I finished the challenge, but you’ll be hearing my old thoughts since there never seemed time to publish them.
If you want the conclusion thoughts – I’ve enjoyed having a diet that’s responsible toward the environment and pretty responsible toward my body (very responsible toward my body when I make it that way).
I forget exactly when I finished. I think it was sometime in May, and I still haven’t eaten meat again yet.
I do eat dairy sometimes, but not often. Basically, I call myself vegan-ish – definitely vegetarian and pretty darn vegan. But, for instance, there’s this place that apparently has killer grilled cheese sandwiches and they have a cool secret comedy show (inside of the secret restaurant that’s hidden in their barber shop). I’m totally going later this month for the fun experience. And I’m going to eat a grilled cheese sandwich.
I know I could still go and have a good time without eating it, but it’s supposed to be super delicious and I like grilled cheese. So yeah. I’m vegan most of the time, but I have my dairy-filled moments.
I do think want to try meat after abstaining from it for a full year (so anytime after August). I want to know how it tastes after so long without it. I guess I’ll see how I feel in September, but I kind of think… even though I never thought I’d say it… I think that I will probably be a vegetarian for the foreseeable future.
I was so wrong. You were right, vegetarian friends!
So, that’s where I am for now. I found it to be a pretty worthwhile challenge. And I’ll be talking about the struggles I faced and things I learned over the next Fridays.
