The ONE THING I don’t like about being a vego

If you have been following my blog a little bit, you would have come across my many reasons to become a vegan/vegetarian. (If not, please refer to an earlier post.)

As the video on that post explains to a tee all of my reasons for my new-found beliefs, there is one thing that troubles me about living this type of lifestyle. I don’t like being a vego because I find it very limiting. For as long as I can remember, I have been a very open-minded person and very interested in trying lots of different and new things, especially when it came to food. I would try almost anything and everything under the sun at least once. I loved experiencing new foods and flavours that were offered to me from various cultures and what not. I know that although being a vego, I still have the opportunity to have, eat and create delicious foods, I just feel it is in some way very limiting, and I don’t like giving myself limits. I guess it just gets a bit challenging when the majority of the world is so accustomed to consuming meat and animal products that I feel like I’m limiting myself to only eating the “vegetarian” option on the menu rather than having a chance at eating anything off the menu. It’s much more enjoyable going to a vego restaurant and knowing that I can have my pick of anything that they have to offer.

I know I have only been a vegetarian for a few months, but I realised today that this is the most challenging thing for me. I hope I overcome it though as I need to continue to remember that ‘fish are friends, not food’ (Finding Nemo). And the same goes for all other living beings on this earth.

  1. Thank you for sharing! I enjoyed reading your blog. Good luck with being a vegetarian/vegan! There are still some foods I can’t quite give up, like sweets. Do you have any vegetarian/vegan cook books? I found they helped a lot.

    • Thanks. I don’t have any cook books, I find I don’t tend to stick to them anyway but I have a few recipes that I’m yet to try. I’m finding the transition to being a vegan much harder, both within myself and within the world we live in, I bought a jar of basil pesto the other night and found it had milk solids! Really?! I’d rather make my own, it’s much more tasty. Hopefully I will get there though.

      • You can do it! Be easy on yourself, it can be a rough transition. I still struggle at times. Good luck! Hit me up if you need support or to talk:)

  2. I’ve had phases of being vegetarian, but it never lasts more than a couple of years. Then someone waves a bacon sarnie about and I’m gone πŸ˜€ I don’t actually eat much meat, I simply don’t like the taste of most red meat, so I stick to chicken and fish, but I do admire those who can resist bacon…. oh and hotdogs πŸ˜‰

    • I’ve never been a BIG bacon fan anyway, and after watching a video on the production of hot dogs, I don’t think I’ll ever eat one again! I do miss particular meats, I won’t lie, but I’d rather miss the taste and know I’m living a happier healthier life rather than give in and disappoint myself. But we’re all different and I accept that πŸ™‚
