Two things to clear up before I begin; No I am not actually about to announce my retirement from blogging. The title is a reference to the Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.
Two; Quorn is possibly one of the most well known meat substitutes. Although if you didn't know what it was then it probably isn't THAT well known.
So what am I getting at? I lasted a long time but I have decided that I will stop being a vegetarian. I originally started doing it to try and lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle and while I have lost some weight, it's pretty much all down to the work I've been putting in at the gym. I have been going insane there and I think that's one of the reasons I've also been so sick and tired lately. I am of the belief that my vegetarian lifestyle isn't able to really keep me going and support such a physically demanding schedule. I'm pretty good at listening to my body and when your body wants you to eat meat, you kinda have to go for it.
I'm not going to suddenly splurge on meat though and eat a ton of bacon and burgers. That would be pretty damn stupid. I'm going to take what I learned in my time as a vegetarian and try and live a much more balanced lifestyle. I do still enjoy some quorn products and will actually still keep eating them. I'm also going to take that vegetarian option more often.
I stopped eating meat for health reasons and as far as I'm concerned, I'm going to start eating it for the same reasons.
Plus everyone kept forgetting I was a vegetarian and kept offering me meat. Although really that's not actually a contributing factor to this choice.
