I was just going through my life in the past few years and the decision to give up meat (and eggs) has been one of the drastic changes in my recent life. I was a chicken lover and poached eggs were one of my favorite breakfast. How it happened? I have no idea. It was automatic and it is blissful.
Once you know that something is harmful to you, it happens automatically. There are many people who continue to drink and smoke in spite of 'knowing' that it is harmful actually do not believe it. They have strong habits which are hard to break without any strong reason.
My observation is not limited to meat or dairy consumption, but also to other food that we eat. Recently, my husband and I made a decision to consume organic groceries. There is still not everything that we get organically grown in India, but we do use whatever we get. The prices of these products are slightly higher than what we get in the market here. Let me tell you a little secret. When you eat pure and organic food, you feel full with less. So it does not disturb your monthly budget at all. And it has helped us in maintaining better stomach health.
Every day I thank God for showing me that day of my life where I got the knowledge and the wisdom to make the choice. Life has been better, lighter and less complicated. Yoga and other exercise has been easier and meditation deeper. I have not visited a doctor for any problem since 3 years now (and now I am forced to believe it is not coincidental). What more can you ask for?
I know this is a vegan community but if I have any meat eating readers here, give this a try. Observe how you feel (overall, not just in the mouth :P ) when you eat meat, eggs, vegetable salad, fine flour, junk food, fruits etc. Rest will follow.
