Two Years Without Meat

I’ve been vegetarian for almost two years. The last piece of meat I tried was a meatball during Christmas with Odd. I couldn’t swallow it and fried my veggie-balls instead. After 6 months I started eating basically just plant based food. I didn’t eat fish or dairy (some exceptions) from April last year until New Years in the Maldives. I craved freshly caught fish there. After that I’ve started eating more fish. In may when I started weigh lifting I added egg and dairy in the shape of keso and curd cheese. I struggle to live without it, I love omelettes, I love keso to my food and curd cheese for breakfast with fresh berries and granola. Keso, curd cheese and eggs is a simple form of protein to get in your system but I also love tempeh/tofu.

I devour every book about eating healthily. In my world that means plant based and anti-inflammatory. There are so many good recipes! I’ve never eaten such delicious food as now. I don’t have any scientific sources behind it but like I wrote in my post this morning, my ADHD is more manageable. I have more energy and the right kind of energy. Balanced during the day and not as much of a rush. I always notice that my skin is nicer and the skin on my body shines more.

Today I ate a sweet potato and carrot stew. With a bit of curry and chilli in. Vegan. The kids got the same but without the chilli. The kids always get to count the colours they eat. It’s a good way of being inspired for each meal. Blue and pink in the morning (fresh berries, blueberries and raspberries), they get peppers or another vegetable at nursery and at home there’s almost always carrots in their snackbowl or frozen mango (big favourite). Today the kids thought it was fun to eat everything that was completely orange.

I’m so keen that we have a healthy base at home. Good food and always moving around. We almost always play outdoors after nursery. If you have that as a base it doesn’t matter to me if the kids eat sweet yogurts (their favourite), have friday crisps, I snack on chocolate and wine at the weekends. We eat dark chocolate every day, Sally gives everyone a piece after dinner. It’s a lovely dinner tradition.

It’s a balance having sweet things at home. Just like the fridge is always filled with veg and berries and all kinds of fruit always accessible, there’s always a bunch of treats in the drawers. There’s always vegan ice cream in the freezer and there’s probably 15-20 chocolate bars in our chocolate drawer. The kids reach the chocolate but they know the rules, one square per day is okay and on the weekend they get to choose a mini buffet of the chocolate they want. I believe that if you always have access to something, the craving isn’t that big and you get a healthier relationship to everything.

What do you think?
