So far, cutting meat has been pretty easy. It’s worth it, too. My diet is healthier overall—more fiber, vitamins, etc. Except my crazy addiction to cheese, it’s been a good transition. Your body just feels . . . lighter. You feel better. You don’t feel weighed down.
The next step is to read more about organic and environmental-friendly consumption. I became veg because it was 1) cheaper 2) quicker and healthier meals 3) better for the environment. The first two reasons were the primary ones, but I think I should research more on the 3rd one. Any recommended reads about how to really eat healthy for myself and the environment?
I bought a new camera two months ago—Fujifilm FinePix f30. I spent 3 paychecks worth on it and so to make the most of it, I bring it EVERYWHERE with me. This way, when I get an urge to take a photo, I have no excuse!
I stick it in my bookbag, in my purse, etc. I love to take pictures of random pretty things in nature, people, and FOOD! I’ve gotten over the fear of taking my camera out while I’m dining at a nice restaurant. I love taking photos of really pretty meals. So fun!
I got my first cavity at age 19. Yeah, ironic. Spotless through the childhood eating-tons-of-candy-years, then in college, I come home to get my teeth cleaned and TA DA! CAVITY. Once I went through the pain of getting it filled, I was determined to not have to go through it again. After getting tons of teeth taken out (small mouth, big teeth), I have had my fill of novocaine! Flossing every night became a habit after the cavity. I felt like after 2 weeks of doing it every night, I got the hang of it. I skipped one night and my mouth didn’t feel clean! I literally got out of bed and flossed.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Crest Glide floss. It’s fantastic for fitting in tight spaces, and cleans out more than Oral-B Satin, which fits in tight spaces, but doesn’t clean.
