I’m trying a vegetarian diet. I’ve been doing it for a bit and plan to stick to it pretty strictly for the first month. My goal isn’t to become a vegetarian. Instead, it’s to immerse myself into it so I’m forced to find out what foods I can eat to reach my nutrition goals without eating an animal to get there. To be clear, I’m trying a vegetarian diet, not a vegan one. I’ll still be eating dairy in my normal amounts, plus eggs and honey. Once I’m done this experiment, I also know I’ll definitely go back to eating fish regularly. I haven’t decided whether or not I’ll eat fish in the midst of this experiment or not. I haven’t so far, and at the moment, I’m leaning toward “no”.
I’ve been sticking to the same kind of nutrient-dense diet for quite some time, and it’s really working for me. Sure, I get the occasional junk food in there, and the holidays are always hard on me, but overall, I’m eating great. The funny thing is that a lot of people judge my meals as being boring. They assume I’m sacrificing a lot in what I’m eating so that I can reach my physical goals. Not true!

OK, to be fair, I get some fitness and nutrition magazines. Bree gets the rest, and I read them. She makes it easy since she, unlike me, still gets the print versions. I’m too lazy for print and enjoy the digital copies – harder to share, though. A while back I was leafing through one of Bree’s magazines and I saw an article on camel milk. Camel Milk is Exactly What You Think At first, the title drew me because, to be frank, it sounded pretty gross. I have nothing against camels, but I don’t tend to think of them and sanitation in the same light. Then again, cows don’t exactly strike me Read More
Do you wish you could enjoy eating healthy foods more? I get it. I felt the same way as you for a long time. A very long time. In my case, I craved salty and fatty stuff. I wanted it for every meal. A lot of times, I had it for every meal, too. I just didn’t enjoy eating healthy foods. To me, they were bland. They were a punishment. Why have a carrot stick when you can have a Big Mac? It wasn’t really until I met my girlfriend, Bree, that I started getting into the healthier stuff. To be honest, I didn’t realize that healthy food is just food. It’s not a special category of things that taste bland and bitter. There are a lot of nutritious foods out there. In most cases, it’s just a matter of avoiding processed foods.
