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.
Let’s get social. Follow me on Instagram or Twitter. I’m also on Bloglovin, Pinterest and Youtube.
It’s all about balance. I’m a pescatarian too but I try to eat vegan meals a couple of times a week. xx
Yeah you’re right, all about the balance. Good on ya girl! x
At the end of the day lovely, you’ve got to do what’s best for you and your health! I really respect you for putting your health first and if eating meat helps your health, then do that! x

Thanks Lucy! I want to be veggie for environmental reasons but health comes first. I’m all about cutting down on my meat intake. x
Oh wow I love this, is very empowering and a different point of view. As someone said: you gotta do what you feel it’s right for you.

Thanks Ana :). Exactly x
Balance is important! And locally-sourced food does a lot for the environment as well.
You’re exactly right! Thanks for commenting lovely. x
Love your hair…
Thank you Rose! x
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 am indeed, thanks Hannah :). Yeah, unless you take loads of vitamins/supplements. x
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
Thanks for sharing this useful information. I really like your post. I am sharing it with my friends.
Thank you :).
