quick back story. a friend often goes full vegan every January. And he has inspired me to do the same in March.
Call it plant based only or ‘no meat’ for any vegan warriors out there who wanna argue about the terminology.
Been vegan on and off for a number of years due to strong interests in Buddhism, not here to debate morality though tonight.
The last time I was eating zero meat and dairy, a friend eating a carnivore diet inspired me to eat a plate of meat and I felt like it brought me back to life, like something was missing that my body needed.
18 months on and I would like to go full ‘vegan’ (call it what you will) again starting in March.
So I went to the butchers and bought a load of meat the other day before I begin, haha. Not exactly in the spirit of true veganism I know but this has also merged into some experiments.
The 1st is I thought I’d just try eating only meat again for a few days. And straight after I will go 100% Huel.
I have a feeling this time it will be different because being full plant based (no meat and no dairy) using Huel I believe maybe I will be getting all the nutrients my body needs.
I can say, weirdly, last night when eating a Peri Peri half chicken leg, half way through the thought came that I was eating dead flesh from an animal, which I had not thought of before in that way, maybe because prior to this I am been pretty much all in on Huel for the last 10 days or so.
It hasn’t stopped me eating some Cumberland sausages today but I can tell you something, the amount of cooking I feel I have been doing after going all in on Huel for the last 10 days or so, feels like half my day is spent preparing, cooking and washing up after meals!
Anyway no major purpose to this post just thought I would share and get some interesting opinions in response.
