On March 31st I decided that I’ll be a vegetarian for the month of April. I tried eating vegan for a month a few years back and it was a really interesting experiment, but I also was very happy when the time was over. I have a lot of respect for people who do it though. Recently I saw a talk about how living a vegan life can have an incredibly positive impact on climate change. But even abstaining from eating meat and fish should have a really good effect, I guess. I’m already not eating a lot of red meat, but I do like chicken and other poultry and generally enjoy a good german “Brotzeit”. But that said, I can definitely see myself living a (99%) vegetarian lifestyle. Besides that I’m trying to lose weight and I thought eating more vegetables should be a good idea.
Anyhow, the first week went really good so far. To my surprise I actually ate a bunch of vegan meals because often the step from vegetarian to vegan is only leaving out the cheese. I love cheese, but I made a bunch of vegetables and instead of adding some feta cheese as an extra, I added tofu, for example.
This sunday morning I missed my salmon, but after the first short sigh it was more than fine. I’m curious to see how the next few weeks go. The weather is good and that means it’s time for some barbecue soon. Which also means vegetarian barbecue. I have no idea how I’ll like that one, but I’m sure it will be fine. If you have any good vegetarian recipes, hit me up on Twitter or send me a mail.
