The switch from non veg to pescatarian

I think it's too early for me to say that I am pescetarian , though I have gone for 4 months without touching other meats. 

Why? Why would I choose to say no to pepperoni pizza and chicken curry? Well I'm not a particulaly religious person so I would have to say for the life style. My mum is into a lot of organic foods and I'm fascinated by the idea. "Food made out of food" has become the new favourite saying for nutritionists but many of us fail to see the truth in it.

Our bodies where made for processing organic foods. Back in the day, we ate food in the most simplest forms; nuts berries, leafs, legumes and even the meat that we ate was raw. Don't worry, I'm not saying we go extreme cave men and start eating raw meat, but it definitely won't do us any harm to use our bodies the way that they were meant to be used. We don't use metal spoons while cooking in non-stick pans, we don't pour water over electric items, we don't wash denim jeans in warm water, so why would we fill our stomachs and blood streams with chemicals, dyes, processed meat, cancerous cells, pesticide, insecticide and and billions of "icides"? Come on people, we are what we eat, and who wants to be a "icide"? Your 20 letters long. Thats half your problem. No one would remember you, and even worse, your microscopic so you wouldn't be seen aaaand your hated by every scientist who needs to spell your name out a few dozen times in his or her essay.

So people, do yourself a favour, there are heaps of recipies online but my favourite meal of the day is breakfast because I get to make it myself. You can add fruit, nuts, spices, milk, honey or vanilla essense and create different combinations to make a delicious brekkie, quick and easy.
