So I’m pretty sure I’m the biggest meat eater ever. Like meat with every single meal, including breakfast. Sometimes meat as the only course. This is, however, a very high-maintenance way to eat. I’d been looking to switch my diet to something more plant-based. Not totally all plants all the time. More like mostly plants most of the time. I also needed something convenient and something this didn’t take long to cook or that had a super steep learning curve (listen … ain’t nobody got time for that). I figured the less time I spent worrying about food and what I was going to eat, the more time I could spend writing. Enter Hungryroot, a vegan, gluten-free meal kit service.
I’ll admit I was super skeptical that this would work for me, but I found myself pleasantly surprised. First off, the food is very tasty. And satisfying. The meals have a way of feeling indulgent, even though they’re made solely of vegetables (not that I have anything at all against vegetables…I just prefer to eat them alongside a generous portion of meat). But more than that, I feel like I’m taking better care of myself and I feel healthier, more em=nergized and more focused. Now I still eat my meant on the weekends, but I find that I don’t crave junk at all anymore, And that’s crazy because that’s something I thought I’d never say.
I’ve been rewatching the entire series of Game of Thrones lately.
And I’ve been reading the books and going deeper and deeper into the wikis and subreddits (HELP!). Hey, I have a whole year to go before the next and last season and I want to keep things fresh. It is sooo much better the second and third time around, believe me. In a later post, I’ll list both my Season 8 wishlist and death list.
