For the past two days or so, I have avoided eating meat. Yeah, vegetarian animal lovers everywhere rejoice--I have seen the light! I love hamburgers, tacos, and burritos to death, but let’s face it, too much of this delicious stuff makes for poor digestion, increased cancer risk, bad skin, and cruelty to our precious animal friends.
I may from time to time cheat mind you, but if I can find adequate veggie substitutes, imma do it. I mean, I know that humans are designed to be omnivores per se, but I cannot pretend to not notice how bad chickens, cows, and pigs are treated in those slaughterhouses and stuff and how gross it all really is. Meat is loaded with germs and chemicals and all the reading I’ve been doing has really really turned me off.
It's not easy growing up in meat-loving America, and certainly even worse for me as a Latino, where eating meat in our culture is overdone!I won’t become some crazy militant PETA animal-rights activist all of a sudden that is going to start attacking my fellow carnivore humans, this is all a matter of personal choice. This means of course, eating more soy than I ever have before, although I was reading that THAT itself may be unhealthy and not good for men because it increases estrogen levels abnormally, although this is highly disputable.
Call me suggestible, but my tummy doesn’t feel so damn bloated or constipated ever since I started doing this.
Now onto a colon cleanser… (<---insert gay joke here! LOL!)
