Last week, in my blog post I mentioned I was vegetarian-ish. I’ve always said I would never give up meat because of my love for chicken, but I stand corrected, chicken with the bone is one of the reasons I consider not eating meat. ?

Let me take a moment to explain what vegetarian-ish means for me. Lol.

Vegetarian-ish – a person who consumes no meat majority of the time, but may have a steak or some bomb boneless chicken from time to time. ? Y’all not judging right? Lol.

Currently, on my vegetarian-ish journey, I’ve decided not to purchase meat at home, my sisters call me the “social carnivore”. So, if you see me eating meat in public don’t come for me, I may tell you to mind ya business!!!???

Only eating meat in social settings has kept me from impulse-stopping at a fast-food restaurant just to get something quick on the go. Now, I have to plan my meals more or go home and eat. #ihavefoodathome

I realize that what you eat can have you stagnant on your workout journey. Last month I didn’t eat meat for 25 days and it was an awesome experience. I felt better, I wasn’t bloated, I cooked more at home and I consumed more fruits and veggies.

I’m often asked will I eventually be a vegetarian – and my response is yes, possibly in the near future. My personal struggle is sometimes when I go to restaurants, there aren’t a ton of options – I don’t want a $15.00 salad or to load up on carbs (that defeats the purpose of eating healthy). As I’m learning more about myself, I’m trying to incorporate good habits, so I’m not doing binge diets but instead activating a lifestyle change.

QOTD: What are some lifestyle changes you have incorporated into your diet? Tips, recipes, and suggestions are welcome.
