I've never been a big fan of meat. I was always the one at dinner that left half their chicken or grimaced at the thought of eating lamb off the bone but what put me off meat was far from the dining room table.

I decided one evening (based on the recommendation of another YouTuber) to watch a documentary about abattoirs and meat sourcing. From that day forward meat was not for me and I gave up cold turkey; ba-dum-chhhhhh!

Since then I've never looked back. I'm not a preachy vegetarian so I'm here to say that this blog post isn't about trying to convert the uncovertable. It's more about discussing what being meat free has done for me!

I've found that my energy levels are off the charts. I'm much more sprightly in the morning in comparison to the zombie-esque lady I was before. It's forced me to make better life choices when it comes to my food and to exercise. I was a bit of a couch potato, who sat there nomming on crisps and biscuits. I'm not saying that I don't still do that but since researching healthy vegetarian snacks, crisps and biccies are not at the forefront of my mind!
I've taken up meditation and yoga. Bye bye back pain, hello flexibility ;) I've always been a bit of a stress head (my husband is nodding profusely) and since making these combined lifestyle changes, I react so differently to things that would have usually tipped me over the edge.

It's made me look into all kinds of chemicals and man made products that I was previously shoving in/on my body! I wouldn't say that I'm perfect at this. I do still use normal shampoo, soap, I eat chocolate and drink squash but I've definitely cut out things that I naively assumed would be good for me. *Takes a swig of prosecco.

Family meal times are much more inventive and enjoyable. I've found that Theo is so interested in trying different foods which makes for easy dining and a varied, healthy diet. He does still have fish though because it's something he really loves! Shopping for all the food we use is so simple and much more affordable than when we used to buy meat. Got to love saving the old pounds!

I guess the one thing I would love someone to take away from this is to give it a go, look into where you're getting your meat, make sure that those animals are being slaughtered ethically, check out chemicals and artificial additives to make sure you're happy eating them or giving them to your child.

Knowledge is power and once you crack that door it's easy to make better decisions for you, your family, your health and happiness!
