Meatless-ly happy

2 months. Or 63 days to be exact. No meat. 

It started as a ’30-day trial’ as I was not even sure if I could stay on a vegetarian diet for long. Surprisingly, a lot of ‘inconveniences’ were self-conjured. Over the past weeks, I discovered that there were actually many vegetarian dining options out there – and many many other possibilities of how one could prepare a hearty meal without harming any animals. Most importantly, plants can taste good, if not better!

I am confident enough to say that I am pledging to be a vegetarian for life. I don’t want that awful sensation of putting animals into my mouth anymore. I don’t want to burp dead animals. I want to put a stop to violent animal farming practices. 

That said, I hope you don’t see me as some arrogant self-righteous animal rights crackpot. I am still your normal friend and I don’t mind you eating animals in front of me. My dearest Dad still enjoys his pig trotters and assam fish head while I quietly savour my lifeless vegetables at the dinner table. Our conversations are normal and family bonds remain as strong as before. Nobody at home could really find any reason to complain about me eating plants in front of them, so there. 

Nothing has changed really, I am still me, except for a slight stirring from within – that I am meatless-ly happy. 🙂

Non-dairy alternatives

Friends exclaim in bewilderment when they realize that I don’t drink cow’s (or any other animal’s) milk. I like my coffee black and so I don’t feel that I am missing anything. The idea of drinking bodily fluids from another unknown animal sickens me…that’s just me….

What about your cereals you may ask. Well, I do take milk, but only from plant-based sources!

For the month of July, NTUC is having promotion on the following:

Eco-mil Almond Milk (Sugar-free)

$5.20 (U.P $6.50)

Good Karma Flax Milk

$4.75 (U.P $5.60)

Of course there’s always soy milk, but too much soy is bad too, hence it is important to drink a variety of plant-based milk derived from other sources. These include rice milk, whole grain milk, hazelnut milk…oh man there’s just so many alternatives out there and you’ll be spoilt for choice. Trust me, they taste helluva better than dairy milk! Do give it a try!
