Decisions, decisions

Friday, October 01, 2010

Ok was toying with the idea, of returning to eating meat (My PETA dedication, and cruelty to animals still stands, so that is very doubtful). Because of 2 reasons. One, not enough protein. Two, eating wayyyyyyy too much eggs and cheese. And Shrimp and some fish are just not that healthy for one to eat. Shrimp is loaded with cholesterol. And fish, Mercury, being the enemy here, and cheese a multiple of reasons, a great big one, is it binds you. I will really have to think about it. I am wondering if scallops are allowed, they actually do not have "eyes" Most Vegans use that, don't eat anything with eyes. Hmmmmm I wonder does that include potatoes? Of course, if I step into this very constricted lifestyle will be even harder, to get that much needed protein. One thing I do notice, is that
I drag around much more, when I don't make my protein levels for the day.

    I really understand what you're saying. I have never really been much of a meat eater but I do eat tuna, scallops, cod and chicken at times. I have added beans, soy, and tofu but still have a hard time getting in enough protein. Good luck and let us know what you figure out.

    Have you tried incorporating more beans or other proteins? Like soy, tofu, or TVP? Maybe try that first, especially if you really don't want to go back to meat.
    Oh, for fun, here is a link to a vegan/animal friendly blog that a girl I knew in college writes. It is cute!
    Hope you have a good evening!
