The Pros and Cons of a Vegetarian Diet: The Truth about Plant-Based Eating.

I've been an off-and-on vegetarian since I was about 10 years old. I remember telling my mom at a young age that I didn't want to eat meat anymore, and as an athletic child, she was worried.

"How will you get your protein?", "Will your energy, mood, and performance suffer?", "Do I have to cook you a separate dinner now?" were all questions that came up with this change.

Why do I choose to eat very little meat? Well to be honest it's partially because meat grosses me out, and partially because I'm a highly empathetic person who is passionate about animals. I don't advise everyone go vegetarian, but if it speaks to you, I support that! If not, keep doing your thang.
