Meatless March Results

I decided to take part in Meatless March once again. I went 31 days without eating any red meat (pork or beef), poultry, and seafood. This was my second time doing this. I took part in Meatless March for the first time in 2017. For the most part, it was not too difficult, though I did cheat twice. I ate chicken once and red meat once.

Something I did during Meatless March was run the LA Marathon as a vegetarian. By that point, I had been a vegetarian for about three weeks. I felt good, didn’t feel like if I was deprived of anything and I had plenty of energy. I was able to finish my second marathon in approx 5 hours and 13 mins. 

One good thing about taking part in Meatless March was the fact that it forced me to be more open minded and try food that I would never have tried before. When I went to San Diego, I ate pizza with artichoke and jalapenos. I had never tasted jalapenos or artichokes before . 

I wouldn’t have been able to get through Meatless March if it wasn’t for the many options I had for mock meats.  My favorite brands that I tried were Gardein, they made the best meatless chicken wings, and Morning Star, they make good meatless burgers. 

Towards the end of the month, I admit I started getting lazy and didn’t cook much for myself. So I spent most of the last week waking up with low energy and headaches. 

Since Meatless March ended, I have begun eating meat again. However, I don’t eat pork and eat beef very rarely. For the most part, I mainly eat chicken. I do plan to become vegetarian eventually and maybe even vegan (someone who eats absolutely no animal products). I liked how I felt during the time when I wasn’t eating meat.
