Ok so I vowed to start eating really healthy and less in the new year. I am standing up in a wedding, attending another wedding and have my own wedding at the end of the year! So I have to be in the best shape!!! As of Sunday, I really tried to cut down my daily food intake as well as monitor the quality of it. Now before I can take this any further let me explain something. I love meat! I love chicken, fish, beef, pork, burgers, turkey burgers, chicken wings, ribs. I am not a veggie lover by any means. Becoming a vegetarian was NEVER my intention! But it happened! Totally, completely, accidentally! I didn't even realize it until yesterday night! I have had my protein intake with beans and hummus and stuff...but I just found that it was absolutely amazing that I was not craving meat! Then it hit me! Maybe I crave it all the time because I consume it too much! I haven't craved it at all! I have craved carbs though, which is ok, as long as it's the good carbs :)
I must say I am actually very happy and excited about this! I think it's a good chance for me to change what my diet wants and craves! Yeay!!!!
I will keep posting on my challanges and success with this! It may even inspire me to create vegetarian dishes! I will still be cooking meat though, only because my fiance' needs it.
