The Beauty of Vegetarianism
I have to put a disclaimer out there... I love animals, but I'm not vegetarian to save the world or to protect animals from unjust harm... I do it for health.
I just love the idea of simplifying everything. And why not take the chance to simplify my eating habits. Instead of thinking about how to be healthy while eating meat (surprisingly hard) I decided to cut meat out of my diet all together.
See how beautiful my meals are now? Compare that to a bloody, thick slab of steak (although delicious).
Perhaps I'll get to the point where I decide to be this new thing called flexitarian, eating meat in small amounts once in awhile... but for now, why bother when I haven't set a foundation. I'm happy with nomming on some green peppers and hummus.
