As I’m writing this page, I’m not vegetarian. Yet. After watching one too many food documentary I wanted to change my eatings ways, albeit slowly. A complete explanation you can find here.
This is my plan as to how I’ll systematically become vegetarian:
2017: Eat vegetarian 1 day per week.
2018: Eat vegetarian 2 days per week. Stop eating pork and wild boar.
2019: Eat vegetarian 3 days per week. Stop eating game – venison, hare, rabbit and squirrel.
2020: Eat vegetarian 4 days per week. Stop eating lamb, goat, woodcock, grouse, quail, pheasant and guinea fowl.
2021: Eat vegetarian 5 days per week. Stop eating beef and exotic meats.
2022: Eat vegetarian 6 days per week. Stop eating chicken, duck, teal, pigeon, goose and quail.
2023: Stop eating seafood. I’m a full-blown vegetarian! Now onto veganism.
Some say my idea is crazy but after much soul searching and knowing myself, this is the way I know will work for me. How you go about on your own journey is up to you.
Every month I write an update with new musings, questions and discoveries. Here are the links:
Ultimately, I’d like to become vegan so in the meantime, I’m having great fun exploring the new vegan products hitting the shelves on a daily basis. It’s encouraging to see a shift in society taking place and as time progresses it will only get easier to make the transition. Here is the best vegan product guide.
While “watch Netflix and chill” has become to be known as something else in the dating world, I do exactly that in my spare when the odd occasion arises. More often than not, I turn to non-fiction instead of movies and TV series, which make my brain go numb just reading the titles. I am not on any mission to try and convert anyone to anything, but merely listing documentaries I’ve watched and books I’ve read. My hope is for you to approach these resources with an open mind and dare to question the status quo. At the very least these should make you think, whether you accept or reject the messages in them.
Vegucated was the first food documentary that I watched that set me on this journey. What happens if three hardcore meat and cheese eaters decide to go vegan for 6 weeks? Watch it and find out.
What The Health recently made waves on social media. It turns out to be a bit like Marmite. Definitely worth a watch.
Earthlings might be old but it remains relevant today. Fifteen minutes in and I got tearful, telling my watching companion that I had a bad week. I then continued to get drunk to make it through the rest of the film.
