I’ll Never Be The Same, If I Don’t Eat Meat Again!

And it’s probably for the best…

Hey guys! I hope you’re well 🙂 and yes, in case you were wondering the title of this post is definitely a play on Katy Perry’s ‘If we ever meet again’ lyrics. I always loved that song!

If you caught my blog post at the beginning of this month ‘4 Ways I’m Detoxifying My Body For A Better State Of Mind’, you will see one of the things I have given up recently is eating meat. I fully believed that by doing this, the state of my mental health would improve. And, I think it did, even if just a little.

I managed to go meat free and live vegetarian for a solid 25 days and whilst I didn’t realise it at the time I can see now based on the past couple of days, what an impact eating meat has on the state of my mind. And it’s not a good one.

Due to circumstances I had to consume meat a couple of days this week as I went to stay with my grandparents who cooked me meat based meals two nights in a row. Now I had told them before I’d gone vegetarian but I’m guessing they must have forgotten or not fully taken in the info. I mean, they do have 17 grandchildren / great grandchildren and my gran has around 11 siblings so to keep up must be tricky 😉 I don’t blame them, and when they told me what they had planned for dinner I just didn’t have the heart to tell them I couldn’t eat that stuff. You know, how can I tell my lovely grandparents I don’t want what they’re making me for dinner, I can’t! Although next time I visit I’m fully going to have to make sure there is someway for me to have a different meal arrangement, because I can never eat meat again.

In these past couple of days, since consuming those meaty foods I have fully noticed my mental state worsen so much and it makes me so sad but I realise this is for the best. I had to consume the meat in order to realise how much of a negative impact it has on me, because I can now see a direct correlation between eating meat and my mental health which is something I never fully realised before, so I’m actually grateful to know this now because going forward I am now more aware of what I’m eating and the foods I’m putting into my body. And although I won’t be turning vegan anytime soon, I am definitely going to start looking into more plant based options for my food. I need good energy tings in my body, nothing else!

To sum it up, peep Isabel Palacios answer to someone asking her why she’s vegan-

Boom. 

I am now ready to live the rest of my life meat free and I’m sooo excited, because I now fully realise how good this is going to be for me!

Has anyone else had these experiences with eating meat / going veggie / vegan? I’d love to know your thoughts so please let me know in the comments below.

Thank you all for reading,

I hope everyone has a wonderful day today,

lots of love,

Jennie

  1. Okay, I never push not eating meat on anyone- but I resonate with this 100000%. When I stopped eating meat I changed as a person- I became more energized, happier, intuitive, and awake. This was so interesting to read- thanks for sharing, Jennie! xo

    1. I agree, it’s a personal choice and we live in a world where people have grown up with eating meat and it’s normal to most people so I’d never judge, it’s a personal choice! But I’m grateful to hear your views, that’s absolutely amazing! And I think it’s true! You do become more awake, or alternatively I think becoming awake guides you to cutting out meat. Either way, it’s definitely ‘woke’ haha x

    1. Thanks so much gorge! That’s how I feel like, I do hope I can go vegan one day. The thought of eggs right now make me feel sicky but I am still drinking milk and eating cheese! Although I’m definitely going to switch my milk consumption with my cereals to soya. Slow progress but progress nonetheless! Thanks again hun x

  2. I love love love this!! We have cut out red meat successfully but I’m so interested in going fully vegetarian/pescatarian. I love that Instagram screenshot! Such a good explanation. ❤ . I never thought about a connection with a negative mental state, but I'm definitely going to be watching for that now. Thanks for sharing, girl! You're so inspiring!

    1. Eek that’s wonderful news Courtney, congratulations! Isn’t it? I thought I had to share because it sums everything up perfectly! Ok girl just look after yourself, it probably doesn’t effect everyone the way it does me, it’s just something I noticed! Love you! X

  3. Thats so great that you’ve realized how different you feel when you eat or don’t eat meat. I haven’t taken the full plunge of cutting it out completely but I have stopped eating it the majority of the time and often opt for pescaterian or vegetarian meals when were out. I love it.
