I've moved back into the dorms after winter break, and I've decided that, rather than eat the nauseating meat that is served for entrees, I'm going to try out vegetarianism.
I've always kind of thought about it, but I've always, for various reasons, made excuses not to. Things like nutrition and taste always held me back. Now that I'm regularly taking daily multivitamins and I'm more or less far away from any good tasting dishes involving meat, I'm out of excuses.
I have a few reasons- first of all, it keeps me away from overindulging in meat, which for me is easy to do. It's a healthier choice as long as I'm mindful of what I replace it with. So eating healthier is a definite goal with this. Another one is a very logical one- I'm all for animal rights and conservation and ethical treatment of animals, but I eat meat? Sounds hypocritical to me. So I am looking to eliminate that hypocrisy in my life as well.
Anyways, I don't think anyone reads this yet, but if anyone does, feel free to leave your thoughts below. I'll try to make regular updates on this topic (research and how it's going with my lifestyle).
