My Weeklong Meatless Challenge
Since the spring of 2012, I have been studying the benefits of eating a plant-based diet. Since then, I have also incorporated a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables into my diet. From time to time, I have gone on meatless challenges.
* Typically, I go without meat once a week.
* However, there are times when I choose to
go the entire week minus meat. This week is
one of those weeks.
Some of the benefits of incorporating more fruits and vegetables that I've noticed:
* more energy,
* better mood,
* decrease in PMS (less cramping and bloating),
* I feel better!
Do I still enjoy a tasty burger every now and then? Yep!
Do I still enjoy succulent fried chicken from time to time? Yep!
Why? Because, I choose not to be in bondage to anything. Moderation is the key.
I am not a doctor or other health care practitioner - just a child of God trying to be the best me that I can be.
1 Corinthians 6:12 Amplified Bible (AMP)
12 Everything is permissible (allowable and lawful) for me; but not all things are helpful (good for me to do, expedient and profitable when considered with other things). Everything is lawful for me, but I will not become the slave of anything or be brought under its power.
