When it comes to food, i’ve never been the healthiest eater. I decided I wanted to start having a healthier diet. What better way to do that, than to become a vegetarian?
I spent a week being a vegetarian, no meat nor fish. This was difficult, i’m not going to lie. But, what I gained from this experience is a new perspective on eating healthier. I found myself learning about new meals, that I could now appreciate.
Falafel was one of the new foods I learned about and enjoyed, which is basically a bean meatball. I had it on a gyro one day, was amazing. I also tried tikka masala from an Indian restaurant, which was favorable and spicy. This was only the 2nd time i’ve ever had Indian food, and it exceeded my expectations. Along with the meal, I also had some Naan, which is a type of flatbread. A couple veggie bowls from Chipotle, and home-cooked meals accompanied me the rest of the week.
All the food I had, even the simpler meals, tasted better than normal. I’m not sure if this was because I didn’t get as filled up on the vegetarian diet, or that maybe I appreciated the meals more. It’s something about eating healthy that makes it feel like your stomach is, literally, thanking you!
Towards the end of the week I became a vegetarian, I seemed to have gained more energy throughout the day. Maybe the toxins in my regular diet were slowing me down, I wouldn’t doubt it. Eating vegetarian is something that I might adopt once a month. I think it’s great for the body and mind to eat healthy.
