I always thought that being a vegetarian would restrict me to a dull and tedious food regimen. Well, not really!
The fact is that for the most part of our lives, we’ve only ordered our favorite meat dish, relished it and repeated it each time at our favorite joint, without ever realizing that we’re eating the same meat dish, nothing different.
Vegetarianism on the other hand allows you to play with a whole array of fruits, vegetables, legumes and nuts. It may be a slow realization in the beginning but once you start seeing the benefits you start enjoying it.
With vegetarianism you start wanting to eat at home as you know its healthy. You begin seeing the limitless options for a healthy, nutritious, and yes, tasty meal. It encourages you to explore the various farmers markets and opt for the whole assortment of vegetables available. You start savoring the taste of each of those vegetables that you had ignored for so long. As an example, have you ever counted the sheer variety of apples available in the market? From Washington and Golden Delicious to Fuji, each one comes with its own aromatic taste. Try one each week. Move on to oranges and pears.
Try brewing a new mix of these vegetables every now and then. You’ll never get bored of eating the same dish all the time. And enjoy all the befitting rewards too. Within a few days you start feeling great on the stomach, you feel active and your skin starts to glow.
Go veggie and add the endless options of vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts and concoct your own dishes with your favorite veggies and fruits. There are plenty of alternatives to choose from. Believe me, you’ll never get bored!!
