Being Vegetarian Is Not Boring or Is it? Stop Lying To Yourself

So you love meat and claim you can’t give it up because vegetarian food is boring. Oh please. Spare yourself(not me). It’s either you want to be healthier or you don’t. Just look at the benefits of eating vegetarian.  Look at them.


Benefits of Eating Vegetarian
  1. Aids in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, renal disease and dementia, as well as diverticular disease, gallstones and rheumatoid arthritis.
  2. Longer life span - On average, vegetarians live about 7 years longer than meat eaters and vegans live up to 15 years longer.
  3. High in antioxidants which protect our cells from damage by cancer causing free radicals, such as pollution and smoking.
  4. Helps reduce the signs and effects of aging.
  5. Better cholesterol levels
  6. Lower body weight
  7. Helps reduce the need for diabetes medications for those with type 2 diabetes
  8. Increased energy
  9. Reduced risk of food-borne illnesses
  10. Eases menopausal symptoms
  11. Bowel movements are regularized

Do you want to experience those benefits and more in your life or don’t you? It’s a simple matter really. My husband says it’s a MOM thing. MOM meaning Mind Over Matter. I've had to make myself do what I did not want to do so many times because the benefits far outweighed the results of not doing what I had to do. What’s stopping you?

Are family members ridiculing you? Are they more important than your health? I love my husband more than I can even express. He is the star of my life after Jesus but you know what?  If I put my husband above my health then I will not be able to enjoy our love because of sickness or death resulting from my bad eating choices. How will you be able to enjoy your children if you are always running to the doctor from some sickness or the other that could be prevented?  Come on. Forget about the ridicule, you’re doing it for them (though they may not appreciate it). Or better yet, do it for yourself. You’re the one who will feel good or NOT.

Spaghetti and Veg Balls in Tomato Sauce

Let’s talk about the boring now. If you've ever tasted good vegetarian cooking you will literally eat those words and kick yourself.  Have you tried some of the recipes on this site, like the Spaghetti and Veg Balls in Tomato Sauce you see up there? Have you visited any vegetarian restaurants or ordered vegetarian fare when you eat out? No? Well, just stay there and imagine the blandness – it will get you nowhere.  If you have done those things and still find that the food has no taste, then what are you going to do about it? You’re the cook! Add the spices to make it taste your kind of good.

Get a vegetarian cookbook. Amazon has tons of them. Here are some downloadable ones for quick access. All less than $3.00

If you prefer hardcover then check these out.


There are really no excuses other than food allergies or an inability to eat that should keep you from doing what you want to do for your own health and wellness. Nobody is forcing you to eat vegetarian. You are the one who wants to but says it’s boring. It’s a cop out. Don’t listen to the lies. Just do it!

The Bible says in Ephesians 5:14 - "Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church."  So that's what I did just now - spoke the truth in love.

Telling you like it is in love,
Jenn

    So not necessarily, that's just means you're speedy (it's not like you have to wait for you to finish when you're doing it with you).
    And it's OK that you're speedy with Rosie and her 5 sisters, as long as you're not speedy with Miss Right.

  34. I think everything posted was actually very logical.

    However, think on this, suppose you were to create
    a killer headline? I ain't suggesting your information is not solid., however suppose you added a post title that grabbed a person's attention?
    I mean "Being Vegetarian Is Not Boring or Is it? Stop Lying To Yourself" is kinda plain.
    You could peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create post titles to get people to open the links. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab people excited about everything've got to say.
    In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little
    livelier.

    Or at times you might be dehydrated but you mistakenly think
