My current diet consists of 90% plant-based food. I eat oats for breakfast and brown rice with a variety of vegetable for lunch. My dinner varies. As a heavy meat-eater all my life, to be able to swing my diet towards a more plant- based one surprised even myself.
I look forward to my every meal. They are not only tasty, but also meaningful. Most importantly, I am in control of what I choose to put in my mouth. This choice is truly liberating, rather than restrictive, as what most would feel.
Ralph Smart said that energy cannot be destroyed, only transferred . When we consume animals, their fear and agony will be transferred to us. This stucked. Minimalism helped me to reduce my craving for meat. Over time, eating meat became even undesirable for my preference. As the distractions around me were reduced, my life principles and health priorities become clearer.
To know that I will leave my next meal guilt-free, antibiotic-free, and growth hormones-free, makes every of them truly enjoyable.
