I have recently wanted to have become vegetarian/vegan.
I care about the environment and animals, but I cant be an advocate for the environment and animals, if I eat them and use them for products daily.
I tried to go vegetarian for a week. I completed it. And I am proud that I completed it. It wasn’t that difficult, but in a way it was. I had to really think about the snacks I wanted and I couldn’t go for my normal everyday food as that was meat.
I substituted my everyday Tuesday brunch, from a sausage butty for a jacket potato and beans. I tried a new sandwich which was just hummus and sweetcorn, this was disgusting, so I just didn’t end up eating it.
This week taught me how easy it was to become vegetarian, and how much will power I actually had.
This was a surprise because I didn’t actually think that much willpower.
I am writing this to tell people that if you want to do something, or change your life it is easy to do so.
I believe in the future that I will become vegetarian/vegan. I will document this change blog style and vlog style.
This will be a very difficult transition, because I am a meat eater. I love how easy meat is to cook, buy and store. But I want to do this, I love animals and I respect the earth, so I am going to change my behaviour for the world and my future kids.
As well as this, I will try and limit my carbon foot print. I have seen lots of people trying to live a zero waste lifestyle and I will try this soon, it will be difficult as the city I live in doesn’t have shops that are zero waste so I will have to do some research.
One of my best friends has just recently done a dissertation on how plastic is killing the earth and she is now living a zero waste lifestyle, so I will message her and get some tips from her, so she can help me and maybe help some of you guys.
This is the beginning of a new chapter for me and maybe I will inspire you to live the life you want to live to.
All I know is that I want to change myself and my life for the better.
