I Have Eliminated One of My Favorite Foods
I have been kicking the idea around for a couple of years now, but just never took the plunge until this past week. And I didn’t make a major declaration in my soul to stop eating this food I just decided at one meal to make a wiser decision. Last week I stopped eating meat and have opted for vegetables.
I was out-of-town and decided to order a vegetable plate instead of baked chicken. That decision led me to do the same the next day and then the next. It has now been nearly a week and all I am eating are veggies. I’ve also decided to greatly reduce pasta and bread.
Don’t worry I’m not going to get obnoxious about it. With the MS and UC issues I think this will give my body the best opportunity to function at a high level and fight both diseases. Also I believe eating more vegetables will make me healthier and allow my weight to level out a bit.
It isn’t easy to eat this way because not all restaurants serve vegetables. If you’ve ever noticed many restaurants serve rice, potatoes and maybe a green, but not much. And for those who might not realize, potatoes are not a veggie. Evelina and I ate at a restaurant last night that didn’t have one vegetable on the menu.
At any rate, I’ll see how this makes my body feel in a month or so and re-evaluate.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
