Why I’m No Longer Vegetarian

You may have noticed that I’m no longer vegetarian. And let me tell you why. 

I still love veggie meals and do my bit for the environment. I eat beyond burgers, Linda McCartney burgers and drink dairy free milks, such as oat. 

However, since my endometriosis operation and recovery, I decided to eat meat again. I lost a lot of hair post op recovery and due to my anemnia I thought I would add chicken and fish back into my diet again.  

So, I’ve mainly done it for health reasons. I mainly am Pescatarian but do eat chicken occasionally. I eat a lot of salmon, cod and king prawns on a weekly basis. I feel like it’s helping my hair grow back, alongside taking supplements. And, it’s definitely helping with my endometriosis symptoms. 

So there you have it! That’s why I’m no longer vegetarian. I will still eat veggie meals as I love them and will still continue to drink oat milk. I feel like I’m doing a little bit to help the environment, even though I’m not vegetarian anymore.

    It’s all about balance. I’m a pescatarian too but I try to eat vegan meals a couple of times a week. xx

    Balance is important! And locally-sourced food does a lot for the environment as well.

    I used to be full-time meat eater but nowadays I am eating more and more vegetarian and vegan meals, and eat fish at least twice a week. Like you, I’m a big fan of the Linda McCartney range and love all the new products they have like meat-free duck and pancakes and the bao buns! x

      LOVE the Linda McCartney range, mhmm. Her sausage rolls are also amazing! x

    Sounds like you’re feeling much better, which is great news! I’m a fairly big meat eater so I imagine it must be really hard to find your protein and nutrients etc elsewhere! xx

    I watched a recent Fleur De Force video and she said that she was no longer vegan as she has an under-active thyroid and was advised to eat some meat. I know that my cousin, who was vegan, was advised to eat meat when she had a number of miscarriages, and she then fell pregnant and carried to full term. I think our individual bodies know what they need x

      I watched that video too! That’s good to know, glad she had a successful pregnancy, I can’t imagine what multiple miscarriages could be like, I think that would destroy me. I think it all depends on your body as you say. Eating meat is helping my endometriosis and anemia symptoms so far. x
