For me, I have noticed a lot of great perks to eating less meat over the course of the past 3 months, and I would like to share them with you!
- I have more energy: Literally, I get home from 8 hours of work and have the urge to go kayaking or actually want to work out. During the work day, I don't feel like I need to be constantly inhaling caffeine either. I really didn't notice it until recently. I could also chalk this one up to the fact that it is lighter out later now, but I really think this has something to do with the veggie food.
- I feel healthier: Its not just the energy, its feeling rejuvenated. My skin feels better, my hair and nails look stronger. My body feels like it can do more.
- Weight control: I have found that when it comes to watching my waistline, eating veggie has helped! I feel lighter, which is great since bikini season is on the horizon.
- I have more money: Meat is expensive!!!! I can't even tell you how many meals I have made that are under $10. (I should start noting that).
I would like to note, that although I do feel great benefits from eating less meat, I really, really love hamburgers, bratwurst, chicken sandwiches... the list goes on. So there is no way I would probably ever have the self control to completely be vegetarian, but I do enjoy how I am balancing the two now. Aka, don't judge me if you see me eating buffalo wings....
