Vegetarian diet is not scary at all! My veggie story

Today, the post is not related to cosmetics, but to my diet. I get a lot of questions about vegetarian diet, and more precisely why I went vegetarian, what I eat, etc.
vegan

Well, I would like to say that after 4 months of being on a vegetarian diet I feel great and I do not lack meat, although once I could not imagine meatless dishes.

I put the meat down overnight. This idea has long been born in my head, but I had no "motivation" to give up meat dishes completely.
And although some people think that vegetarianism, veganism will equate to the fact that the weight will go down, unfortunately I have to worry, because my weight is still the same as before switching to vegetarianism :)

I actually became a vegetarian by the day. The motivation to switch to a vegetarian diet was primarily my body, but also P.'s support.
I went to vegetarianism for the first time after watching the program, probably, "Attention", which showed a loud scandal of old cold cuts, sausages, etc. by Konspol (by the way I saw the products of this company in one of the chain stores ... the name of this company will never arouse trust in me).
Disgust after this program went on, but in a typical family of carnivores it was difficult to negotiate additional cooking of meatless dishes. This is how my first adventure with vegetarianism ended, which lasted 2 weeks.
Today, when I create my own home, I also decide what I eat and what I don't. I try to listen to my body, which often tells me what to eat and what to avoid. It was the same with meat. Actually, I gave it up overnight and I don't regret it. Earlier, when I ate meat, I often felt lumbering and stomach ache.
Today, my diet is based on a large amount of vegetables. I got to know the taste of eggplant and pumpkin again, but I also feel that my diet is more diverse nowadays. I eat a lot of groats (pearl, quinoa, couscous, roasted buckwheat), sometimes pasta with vegetable sauces, basil pesto, a lot of vegetables (pumpkins, eggplants, peppers, tomatoes ... whatever your heart desires). Since I started vegetarianism, I have noticed that I cook more creatively. For comparison, once my dinner consisted of a cutlet, potatoes and salad. Today if you asked me when I was eating potatoes, I would say I don't know. But for a few weeks I had oyster mushrooms for the first time in my life and I must say that they are very tasty! :)
Can I imagine going vegan? Definitely not, because I can not imagine life without cottage cheese and feta, which I love ... although on the other hand I could not imagine not eating meat half a year ago, so who knows ...
When it comes to the P. diet, because that's what you often ask, He also limits meat. It does not mean, however, that he does not eat it at all. From time to time he will eat chicken or another meat product for dinner. Instead, he doesn't eat cold meats, without which he couldn't imagine sandwiches a few months ago. I don't force him to vegetarian, but he doesn't sniff when I cook vegetarian dishes. Yesterday he tasted the pumpkin spaghetti that I made dinner;)
In the case of vegetarianism, the biggest problem for me is breakfast. As I only eat two dishes a day, breakfast and dinner around 17: 00 must be very filling. I usually eat this meal at work because I didn't eat breakfast at home as a child. I know, I know it's not healthy etc. but in the morning I prefer to sleep 10 minutes longer than thinking about what to eat here. The more that I do not like sweet meals (I can not eat them), so any porridge, etc. is out of the question.
I am not advocating anyone for a vegetarian diet, I think that it is the decision of each of you how you eat. Please take this note only as my experience with a vegetarian diet.
Maybe you have some nice, quick ideas for a vegetarian spicy breakfast?

    Not everyone will be able to switch to such a diet from day to day, so it's best to limit the meat gradually 🙂 Currently, there are so many different veg products in the store that there will be no problem discovering new flavors. It is also important to remember that a diet without meat requires substitutes that will be a source, among others proteins, B12 vitamins, iron.

    Have you tried soy products? For example, Polsoi soy meats and sausages, pastes, which you can buy in the store or make yourself (I recommend sunflower with dried tomatoes - delicious, simple, cheap and you can freeze) or at least tofu (smoked can be given just for sandwiches, and natural can be made fattening pan, creams, pastes etc.)?

      I like to eat soy sausages or soy curry sausages from time to time, but my diet is not based on this :)

      Yhm, but they are irreplaceable from time to time 🙂

    I propose for breakfast various egg dishes, e.g. omelette, scrambled eggs.

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 22 September 2014 / 12: 58

      I eat eggs, but eating eggs everyday is not too healthy :)

    • Avatar Zofia 22 September 2014 / 13: 59

      According to the latest research (if there are no contraindications), they can be eaten almost every day.
      But it still depends on the individual response to eggs 🙂

      Seriously? I have eaten 3 days in a row recently and my stomach ached, so maybe my food allergy is obvious.

      They probably don't serve you in large quantities 🙂

      It's quite possible that's why dlatego

    I probably wouldn't have managed it on the plants without a gram of chicken

      I couldn't imagine it either, but it's ok:) I am not drawn to meat at all.

    it's great here with you 🙂

      Thank you, and it will be even more fun, because we are working on changing the template :))) Regards

    I haven't eaten meat since childhood, although I wouldn't call vegetarianism. I hate eating meat! 🙂 But unfortunately my illness causes that I have to force something from time to time, otherwise a chapel. From here, I will never be able to try a vegan diet, but for some time we have been going with my boyfriend towards raw food plus fish or meat and I will not say, we feel very good 😉 Regards: - *

      Raw food is not for me, that's why I don't even try :)

    Or maybe a vegetarian treat for breakfast? 🙂
    Tomatoes, peppers, necessarily zucchini, onions, tomato puree 🙂

    For breakfast, I suggest to cut a tomato or a few tomatoes to give cottage cheese, mix it and enjoy it, breakfast ready 🙂 You can give onions or other additions.
