What I decided?


Back in July, while on vacation, I decided to take another route and up my game on how I eat. My decision was based on what I have been reading and seeing not because of any health issues. However, I must say I am losing weight and feeling great ever since. I decided to cut back and even stop eating meat, while I was still eating seafood occasionally. I eat more vegetables and certain fruits and lots of beans.

What we must remember that commercially  meats and product are questionable because we do not know how it was produced, prepared, farmed or harvested.

I feel good not eating any meat; it can be difficult sometimes eating out but finding a substitute and knowing how to choose the best foods for your body is the key.

I occasionally eat fish, shrimp, lobster, and salmon, especially while eating out which is very rare. But I have limited these kinds of seafood as well over the past week.

This week I am going all out no seafood either. Trying to save the marine life and chickens!

  1. I continuously look back at this post and admire your health style choice and decision. I’m at a point, right now, where I’m leaning on going the vegetarian route but, It’s hard! I don’t like beans, which would be the main source of protein. Any suggestions and tips?

    • I am allergic to soy, but besides that soy is usually from gmo products so that’s not an option.
      So your best option would be the beans? Have you tried them all? Garbanzo/ chickpeas have little taste, you may want to start adding that to your salads and see how that goes for s start.
      Having said that you do need protein and yes beans would be your best bet. Are you planning on eating seafood? If so salmon is an excellent option! Give them a try and let me know!
