Lately I have been feeling the need to make changes to my diet. Being quarantined with a chef and a baker has been the most tempting and balancing act to date😩🥴! However when I started to notice myself feeling sluggish and bloated even after working out 1-2 times a day, I said “aw nah fam somethings gotta give!”🤦🏾♀️
So I decided to cut meat from my diet. In the first day I felt lighter and more refreshed! Now I take my TLC products and supplements pretty consistently so that helped me flush out whatever lingering meat was left to be digested, but overall I was already feeling good!🙌🏾💩
So this #MeatlessMonday is now a thing and it’s Meatless Errday 😝 I have chosen to keep fish in my diet (salmon, tuna, swai etc) but cut the chicken, beef, turkey, and pork 🙌🏾 I am curious to see how these changes impact my body but most importantly, I’m ready to see how I FEEL!
I‘m not foreign to the meatless lifestyle as I typically participate in the Daniel Fast each year and try to fast in some way shape or form 1-2 times a week. I would like to keep it up as long as possible but I plan to be gracious with myself and take it one step at a time...
Todays Meatless Meal was Veggie StirFry with Brown Rice and Spring Rolls
