It has been almost 4 years now since I gave up eating meat. At the time, I imagined a diet full of green salads sprinkled with nuts and fruit juices in the morning. Glowing skin and shiny hair. Sadly, this isn’t the case at all! Preparing fresh meals are a challenge especially on days when I arrive home at 7pm, tired and hungry. Piping hot curries and steaming basmati rice is just the thing my stomach craves. The complete opposite of rabbit food.
Finding reasonably priced yummy vegetarian food in restaurants is a bit of a challenge as well. Unless I’m willing to fork out around RM30 for a salad, my other options consist of “maggi mee, tak mau ayam” or “roti canai”. There are days when I think – Heck, maybe I should just indulge in a steak and fries. How bad can it be?
Reading this reminded me why I made that decision many moons ago. Have a read. Its worth your time.
Where do you stand on the whole vegetarian vs eating meat debate? I’d love to know. And have you ever tried giving up meat before – even if for just a week as an experiment? What was it like?
