It was a Wednesday, the 30'th of April 2008, the Day I last ate meat. :)
A day later, the 1'st of May, I woke up & had breakfast without any Süçük or other meaty food.
At first I thought, I might eat a bit of Poultry every 7 days. But when the 7'th day came I wasn't even interested in it and went straight for my Soya-Margarine, home-made bread with some cheese & lots of raw button mushrooms, as if I had always been an ovo-lacto-vegetarian.
And though I have always been very mindful of what I eat, after becoming a vegetarian I doubled my effort.
Did I know & love healthy food before, like...
peas, mung beans, shiitake, kale, broccoli, cashews, bulgur, yoğurt, chard, pistachios, aubergines, walnuts, Quark & common mushrooms.
Then now came the time to find more food to like & eat... and I am still searching for more to eat.
Food like Amaranth & Quinoa are next on my list.
Another added bonus is, that vegetables, nuts, & fruits taste different to me now.
As if my gustatory nerves had been rewritten... Tabula Rasa, so to speak.
Some food that I used to dislike as a kid, like Okra, Taro & Zucchini, taste ok or even great now.
My diet still sucks, but I hope I will be able to improve the eating habits in 'my' 3'rd year.
I guess, that's it for today! :D
The links are for those people who do not know the mentioned food & because I had nothing else to do right now.
And yes, I know grown men & women, which have never heard of Kale, Bulgur or Aubergines.
Asalways, some digital resources for you all. Download, use & credit! ;)
