Exploration of The MIND

A journey of discovery

My detox + new things on the horizon

On January 1st i decided to go meat free for a month. I am so proud of myself as the challenge hasn’t been much of one at all. For someone who has always loved meat so much – i have found it so easy and I’m not sure if  I’m even going to go back to eating meat. I feel a lot more healthy and energised than i did when i was eating meat, as i am eating  a lot more fish, pulses, lentils and veg. It’s great what a detox can do for you – how it can make you feel.
I watched a programme the other day which was talking about cheap food. It was looking at meat and the content of certain foods such as pies, sausages and other foods which contained meat, and it was just informing you of how much meat they actually contained and what else they contained that we may have not been aware of.  Because of the ” Credit Crunch” some of us have been reduced to buying supermarket brand foods but are not fully aware of the price we are having to pay for eating these foods, as the meat and nutritional content is extremely low. Supermarkets are putting emphasis on the price of supermarket own brand foods to entice people to buy them yet the content of some of these foods is disturbing. Because of the predicament the decision between choosing healthier  foods or affordable food is for some – not really much of a choice at all, as healthier options are becoming more and more expensive. Health concerns and obesity is constantly being publicized yet we are left with not really much of a choice to buy these cheaper foods that are full of salt, high in fat and contain processed meat. We are having to chose to buy cheap food over the consideration of our health! I think that’sdisgusting. I have opted to buying vegetarian foods for a while now, such as sausages, burgers, pies etc. For these i know are going to be soya based and not processed meat, and for me – there is not really much difference in taste. Obviously at first there is, but then you don’t notice it. So a lot the freezer food i buy is Quorn, Lynda McCartney or any other meat free range.

  1. Congratulations on choosing to treat your body as it should be treated. Vegetarianism and even Veganism is a far better way to stretch your years of existence with good health. You might consider taking Vitamin B-12 tablets also to supplement what you might loose in changing your diet, and also look into Loma Linda food products for meat supplimentation. Congratulations again and you won’t regret it!

  2. Thanks a lot for the praise and the advice. I did say i was only going to do it for a month but i still have not eaten meat. I just feel so much healthier not eating it, i will admit i did go to try some but i could not bring myself to eat it.
