Hey lovelies, how are we all?
So something that I wanted to write a little about is my recent decision to give up meat and become a Vegetarian, don’t worry this isn’t going to be one of those posts where I urge you to do the same and tell you all about the animal industry, it’s just a life choice I’ve made and wanted to share it with you all.
I had been toying with the idea of giving up meat for a while, I think my guilty conscious just caught up with me because every time we would drive past a lamb or a cow I would just feel awful, not to mention Martin used to work on a farm so has filled me in with all the ins and outs, which breaks my heart. Like I said I don’t want this to be a pushy blog post so if you’d like any info from me about what goes on then just let me know and I’ll do a separate post.
I think i’ve mentioned that Martin (my bf for those of you who don’t know) has been working away the last couple of months, right now he’s placed in Manchester which is only two and a half hours away … thank the lord! So we decided that last weekend I would go see him for a change as he usually travels home, not to mention he actually had to work that weekend so it kinda made sense for me to go if I wanted to see him, which of course I did!!
What, a baking post, who is this girl?
So one of my favourite things to do is baking, now i’m no Martha Stuart but I find it so therapeutic and I mean who doesn’t love eating delicious treats? If you read my Dabble in the Vegan World post a while ago then you’ll know my boyfriend Martin decided to go vegan at the beginning of the year so making sweet things for him became kinda hard as I was clueless about vegan baking and food, it’s been a journey let me tell you!
Hi everyone, I hope you’re all doing really well! So I thought I would just talk to you guys about my experience with vegan food and the vegan sort of lifestyle … don’t worry i’m not going to start preaching at you, telling you why you should ditch the meat and become vegan because well, I hate those types of people *cough Lucy Watson cough* .
So about two months or so ago Martin (my lovely bf) decided that he wanted to try his hand at becoming a vegan, primarily for the health benefits as we used to eat quite a lot of takeaways and fast food which left us both feeling quite bleghhh a lot of the time. So of course I supported his decision and said that I would eat whatever he eats when we’re together (which is 90% of the time) but when i’m away from him I would continue to eat meat and dairy etc because quite frankly I enjoy eating those things … I guess you can call me a part-time vegan. Martin was 100% fine with this, he wan’t pushy or tried to conform me, besides we’re practically joint at the hip so I’d end up eating what he had anyway most of the time.
