My wife

I can’t say she’s a big meat eater, she hardly eats meat, a couple of times a week – but as she is tasting my vegan food, she loves them. Especially those I eat and buy as meat replacment from Aldi’s or Lidl’s. But really, practically she loves everything I have been making, and once she even said that she was going to become vegan.

And the milk. She’s been drinking lattes since I know her, twice a day, with a small part coffee and big part milk.

Now that I’ve been experiencing with making my own plant milk, she discovered that my coconut milk is good enough for her to drink it. Which means that I need to cook it more often, but it’s worth it.

So, I had planned to write a post about my plans around my life and self-development, but now life has obviously changed with all my plans going right into the bin.

You may know that we had been planning to move abroad somewhere, but I had chosen the way to move only when I have a decent job in my bag – a decent job around my profession. And our future had been in a good shape as I had had an opportunity to start something, but the virus ended it. I hope it’s only postponed, but we’ll have to wait.

Make the best of it

I am a little bit disappointed but still, I think this quarantine can be a good opportunity for something, and it has to be, because otherwise you (or I) may go crazy during it. I think it’s gonna be a long one, which is bad enough, but you have to grab the good parts of it.

Wait, are there any good parts?

That’s for sure, believe me. I am with my family. Of course I need to work in home office, but those breaks between two meetings, the coffee breaks, the lunch breaks give you opportunities to be with them, eat with them and whatnot. You can even adjust your schedule: I decided to wake up at 6am (OK, it is only six-ish, I can’t always do that), but most of the time I do, and after waking up, I do some exercise, work an hour or so, then I am ready to be with them for a breakfast.

About the exercise. I downloaded an app to my watch, and every weekday morning I do an 18-minute workout. I started with a 12-minute one and I want to go up to 30. In the afternoon the family do a 12-minute workout together.

I can have a head-start, as I am sort of in a good well, slightly better shape. I started a veganish lifestyle at the beginning of the year, and I lost 5-6 kgs of weight, so I am now around 78 kgs. That’s a good base to start something with my fitness.

“But what do you eat?”

This is something that most vegans are asked at some point during their transition – as most of them call it. One way or another, but this is something people are interested in.

And they think the diet only consists of salads, so it’s gonna be like feeding a rabbit. This is a really common point of view here in Hungary, today a colleague of mine mentioned at the lunch table that about another colleagues food that that was something they usually give to their birds.

Where am I now?

Hey, so it’s been a month or so since I started moving towards veganism, and I have to admit that I love it. Another thing to admit – it is easier than I expected. I really wouldn’t have thought that I will enjoy it this much without any kind of hassle or pain or something like that.

This one month was full of getting ready and planning the next couple of months in the short term for me.

So, how the hell did that happen? I don’t know. All I know that our fridge was literally full with lots of meat, chicken, beef, ham, sausages (with four different chilies, hot like hell!!!), cheese, breaded chicken wings etc., and suddenly I did not felt like I want them. That week every day when I had come home from work at 6pm I had a big/long chili sausage just for fun. They were sooo good, so hot and spicy that I could not resist.

Before dinner.

(Anyway, there will be a post soon about the items in the fridge, which will be used and eaten by me and which will be given away…)

The biggest change of my life?

Well, no. Not at all.

Less meat, more vegetables

So, a couple of years ago, I went to my company’s for a general check, and he said the my cholesterol level was sort of high. And he said that I should go vegetarian, because

…have you ever seen a fat vegetarian?

Then I talked to lots of vegetarians and other people, for example vegetarians with really high cholesterol, and I decided to eat much less meat.

Less meat but higher quality.

The cholesterol level was better, normal even for years, and I haven’t really paid attention to anything about it.
