I am on a mission to make a bunch of dietary changes this year. I made a big one last year and stopped eating gluten. I know I have mentioned this a bunch, but it was really hard.
There have been tears, so many tears, and slip ups.
I am human.
Though this year I want to cut out meat. I don’t know if I want to go full vegan, I am not sure yet. What I am sure of is that I don’t want to be contributing to the meat industry. There are so many things about it that are displeasing to me. So many things that make me so uncomfortable.
I think the meats I would be willing to eat would be venison. I live in Montana and there is a lot of deer crowding a lot, so I would feel that’s about as humane as you can get meat. There are those who would disagree because the sanctity of life and whatnot. I’d rather have a deer in my freezer than hit one on the highway.
Okay that being said. I started a youtube for weight loss. This is something that has taken a lot of courage to work up to. I haven’t really revealed my weight publicly before. So it was very nerve wracking.
I plan to not count calories, and just eat a high plant based diet with eggs, fish and deer here and there, until I can get to where I am not eating any meat. I do love me some eggs, and I feel if the chickens are treated well it’s not really hurting much. My mother-in-law gives us eggs from her chickens, and I know they are loved and well cared for.
So many baby steps I’ve been taking lately to make a better me. It is absolutely liberating. I can’t even put into words how amazing it feels to know I am on a good path.
