Yep, aside from gaining weight, sitting too much can kill you.Obviously, I can change my job, but I also know that the better paying day jobs involve a desk, chair and computer. And until I have a job where I get to travel a bit, how am I going to release all this unnecessary weight and get back the old, but better me? Food. Awhile back, I went through a period where I hardly ate any red meat. It wasn’t a conscious choice by any means. I just happened to get on a semi vegetarian diet kick. And as I’m aware that the choices I make today affect my future, it’s making me consider a minor lifestyle change:
I’ve been thinking about going on a vegetarian journey.About a year ago, I meal prepped a ton. Making a turkey kale salads four times a week, I had the same lunch everyday for three weeks. And what did I learn? Two things: 1) life is a lot easier and 2) my skin had never looked and felt better. I’ve been toying with this idea of becoming a part-time vegetarian for awhile now and have also done some research. For me, the trick is to find vegetarian meals with more than enough protein since I work out at least three times a week. And considering I’ve found quite a bit of helpful and beautiful cookbooks, I’m going to take my vegetarian journey one step at a time:
#1: Go vegetarian for a week and see what happens.
#2: If all goes well, plan and eat vegetarian meals during the weekdays and treat myself to meat and other “balanced meals” during the weekends. Obviously, leave myself room to be flexible so I don’t stress about it.
#3: Discover a whole different world of cooking, various veggies and test out new recipes!I’m currently in the middle of a 5-day detox this week and so far, it’s going well.
So, I’ve decided to reward myself at the end of my detox by ordering myself quite a few cookbooks!Check them out below.
Here are some fun and beauty-related cookbooks I’ve also added to my wishlist:
