Does your tongue salivate thinking of spicy Tandoori Chicken or some fresh seafood? Do you crave for it, or just “like” it? Are your favourite restaurants all carnivore havens? Then I am talking to you! Because I am you, or at least was!
Unlike placard holding vegetarians, I am not a passionate animal lover. My health and weight seemed fine with what I ate. My wife matched if not exceeded the ‘foodie’ in me, so institutional support was clearly strong! Socially, I prided myself at being a low-maintenance, “fun” guy to hang around, with no constraints or restrictions.
Yet I changed all this - and attempted what I thought was unthinkable at one point. I dropped non-vegetarian food from my diet completely! Why? I am not really sure. It probably came about from a significant life change I was grappling with while moving from 20 years in corporate life to being an entrepreneur. It made me experiment with things that I was doing unconsciously and repetitively. I asked myself what was the one habit I never ever saw myself changing - given my irrational passion for it. The answer rang out clearly in my head - it had to be this and no other!
