Although I do not see myself going 100% vegan (I would miss European butter and cheese way too much), I do see myself eating very little meat/fish going forward. My reasons are below.
- Finding organic, grass-fed/grain-fed meat is difficult and it is usually expensive
- Meat has a huge negative impact on the environment from the cost to raise it to the cost to transport it
- Grains and beans are extremely healthy
- Organic produce is readily available
In some ways, I wish I had been eating vegan/vegetarian all along. In other ways, I am intrigued and excited by this journey. I am forever grateful to my blog and online network of friends because they have opened up my eyes to vegan/vegetarian eating. There is something greater than all of us pulling me in this direction. I am seeing the many signs all around me and I am listening to them. I am being the change in the world that I want to see. Please join me on this journey to a better lifestyle and less impact on the environment.
