1 year of Flexitarianism

It has been 1 year since I decided to become a flexitarian.
I thought the initial enthusiasm would fade in 3 months time.
I am glad that my enthusiasm has evolved into something that I believe in.
.
It is tough to become a full-vegetarian.
And I have utmost respect for Vegans.
How can they give up Chocolate?!?!
.
Currently, I do not eat any land animals at all, and would eat Seafood occasionally.
I am limiting my milk intake as well, by switching to soya bean drink. Cereals with Soya Bean drink is not bad!
.
A few years ago, I would not believe that I could be semi-vegetarian.
I LOVE FRIED FOODS.
My favourite WAS Fried Chicken Wing.
.
Do I miss the TASTE of fried chicken wing?
Absolutely, Yes.
Do I miss the EXPERIENCE of eating fried chicken wing?
Absolutely, NO.
.
'nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.'
- Albert Einstein
.
Most importantly,
Being vegetarian is a way to save our beautiful and precious world that we are living in.
While the cause of world hunger is multi-faceted , meat consumption is a contributing factor. This is because much Third World grain and other food is fed to animals (to produce cheaper meat to be eaten in developed countries), not to hungry Third World people.
.
Hence,
By eating less or no meat at each meal, we all can make a difference in the world.
The first step is always Awareness.

Decided to go green by bringing my own shopping bag.
Pleasantly surprised that I got $0.10 off my bill.
I Felt great! =D
