About two months ago I ran across this post on Lifehacker that resonated with me. I’d already been making gradual changes to the way that I eat, and cutting out meat before dinner seemed like a reasonably small step. So in September I decided to try it. The only real sacrifice was that I stopped having sushi for lunch. I have been trying to eat oily fish three times a week, which was a little tricky to do in seven meals, but overall it was surprisingly easy to do.
When you’re taking small steps, it’s easy to forget how far you’ve come. If you had told me a year ago that I was going to be a vegetarian for two-thirds of the day, I wouldn’t have believed it. It’s hard to see a glacier moving, too, until you look back and see how much distance there is between where it used to be and where it is now.
