I am not a vegetarian, but I have noticed that I eat less meat now that I eat healthier and do not use any processed products. I know it is easy to just open a box, jar or can and warm it up and most of the time it tasted good, too. It definitely was a time saver,too, but then on the other hand I have been asking myself if all the stress and rushing through a meal even caused the unhealthy eating habits and therefore the weight gain/ unhealthy weight. One answer I can give is that you learn a lot about nutrition and taste when you switch to unprocessed and fresh products. For example, my old self always needed to have some meat in the main meal and I hardly ever ate anything without the meat, although I always preferred lean meat.But then with my food processor and Sparkpeople, I decided to eat healthier and noticed that your taste becomes more sensitive and your food has so much more flavor than before. So even though I am still not a vegetarian, I don't need that much meat any more and enjoy eating meatless.
This following blog was written about a year ago, but I found it very interesting and maybe some of you get inspired to try out some vegetarian recipes.
