Being a vegetarian isn’t easy. You must make appropriate changes to your everyday consumption with any dietary restrictions. In the case of vegetarianism, it means no meat. That’s stating the obvious, but until you’ve stepped into the shoes of a vegetarian, it’s difficult to fully realize how limiting that can be.
Meat is the norm in so many cultures. With American food, it’s near impossible to avoid. Imagine going to a restaurant, perusing the wide variety of the menu, and then realizing you’re left with a couple of meat-free food options. There may be plenty of places to accommodate plant-based food eaters, but when most people eat meat, they might not want to always go to some whole food, vegan restaurant.
Practicing a vegetarian diet helped me become a more creative cook in terms of augmenting recipes. It also made me a little more conscious of my product consumption. If it’s not for you, then that’s totally fine, but I’d encourage anyone interested in a plant-based diet to give it a try. You might enjoy it.
