guide to life: eatwhatiwantatarian

you can label me as plenty of things:
daughter, student, cheerleader, brunette, girl, single etc. etc. etc.
but pleasssseee don't make me put a label on how and what i eat!
why on earth is what i put in MY mouth any of YOUR concern anyways!?!


a few months ago i decided to try out what is commonly known as being 'vegetarian'...
at first i didn't tell anyone...
what if i didn't stick to it?
what if i missed meat too much?
what if someone asked why i wasn't eating meat?
what if someone had a problem with my choices?
ofcourse, eventually people noticed and the one question kept rolling in...
why???


to be honest i can't even pinpoint exactly what it was that made me want to cut meat out of my diet...
maybe it was watching fish be killed in the maldives...
maybe i just thought it would help me be healthier...
maybe i wanted to save the animals...
i didn't eat much red meat before the change anyway...
this was just something i wanted to do for me - because i could!


i won't lie and say i havent eaten meat since i changed my eating habits...
but i have avoided it as much as possible...
and maybe that doesn't really make me a vegetarian...
but so what!?!
i don't need the label...
the only time i even use the label is to answer to the people questioning the lack of meat on my plate anyway!


i say eat the diet that makes you feel best...
don't worry about putting labels on it...
vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, omnivore, carnivore...
who cares!?!?!
find what works for you, what makes you happy and healthy...
and then tell anyone that questions that to mind their own business and worry about their own damn food!

AMEN! As you know, I went through that Vegetarian phase and came out still wanting to eat meat- but I now am WAY more aware of what I'm buying- i.e. free range, etc. I don't need a label, for now this works! I love the quote about the village idiot, ha.
