I am feeling so satisfied.
Almost 10 years ago, I was a vegetarian.
I ate in this way for 10 years.
I loved being vegetarian; my body enjoyed the various methods of cooking those foods I loved.
I didn’t necessarily eat vegetarian to ‘save the animals’.
Most know of my love for the animals upon our wonderful planet, and yet, no; it was not for this reason I ate as a vegetarian.
I ate this way because it suited me. My body enjoyed itself. It always felt good. It felt light and satisfied.
The past week I have been eating as a vegetarian.
I have enjoyed the delights of Lasagna, Falafel, Lentil Burgers, Hummus, and Tabouli, fruits of all types, baby spinach and rocket.
Oh, I have savoured these foods, and looked forward to my next meal.
I have eaten a lot; I haven’t wanted to be hungry lest I look for ‘other’ foods to quench my thirst.
I do not know if I shall remain eating in this fashion; I hope so.
Not for the animals, no; not for the animals I adore. It is for me and me alone.
