Veggie diaries

Two weeks ago I thought of going on a no-meat week. no reason whatsoever, I just wanted to see if I could survive w/o meat.! Have to note though, this isn’t a vegetarian diet, because I’d eat stuff that has been cooked with meat, i just don’t touch the meat! It’s really more for me to see if I’m able to live (HAPPILY) w/o meat. Here’s my diary, and my thoughts (present tense cos I recorded it on a per-activity basis)

Monday, 18 April

Breakfast at 8.20am: a slice of cheesecake from giant. light and fluffy, not like the gag-inducing rich ones you get in a cafe.

Lunch at 1.20pm: salad with asian spicy dressing (still can’t tell what ingredients are in the sauce). lettuce leaves, tofu, pasta, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, chick peas. i usually have this at least once a week anyway, except that I add some chicken in it. No loss, no craving. I’ve had lots of chicken the past week.IMG_2249

Snack: cream cheese churros
I don’t have any dinner cos i’m stuffed from lunch hurrr.
And that’s it for my veggie week! I SURVIVED.
People say that w/o meat you’re generally less hot headed… so…
Did it make me a happy person? No leh. no difference.
I didn’t crave much for meat because I stopped eating beef (and stopped craving it too)… and i had an overload of chicken the week before.. so this no-meat thing worked just fine.
Can I do it again? I guess so.. but better load up on meat the week before haha.
Can I do it long term? no. i don’t want to. haha.
