I am Eating Meat Again After 17 Years

Exactly half of my life, I have said no to meat. I remember my last meal: an ostrich fajita. And I will always remember “my first meal” from now on. 

It is an emotional, new stage of who I am. I am re-discovering tastes, smells and lots of feelings. In some ways, it is like being  a kid again.

In the past few days, I took pictures of all the meat I ate. I am in a shock. In a good sense. I am glad that I will be an average person again when it comes to what I eat. I feel the need to be “just average” in some things. 

Because of the breastfeeding, I wanted to make sure that Zoárd will not have problems with his iron level. And when I looked at lists and charts, liver is the super winner. Give him spinach?! Ha! Spinach would go home crying after just one look at a strong, confident chicken liver.

I knew my husband is not keen on eating liver and that is how the idea came to me. I used to love eating liver. I asked my mom to make me spinach and liver for my 13th birthday. (I had no idea I asked to have an iron party…)

I stopped eating meat when I was 17. I worked at Jack in the Box at the time and it got to a point where I felt very uncomfortable eating meat or even being around it when it was fried. 

And now my story has been told. This is so strange, believe me!

This is what I cooked the day before “I did it”…

The liver that changed my life…

Liver for the family. And here comes the first bite:

I am officially kicked out from the group of vegetarians. 

Image
I will now post a few pictures of the meals my husband made me. 

Image
I know this is a lot of meat but this is making history. One must capture it.

What do you mean this looks like the one beforehand?! 

Image
This might interest you! Goose liver! I have never tasted it in my whole life. Crazy, huh?!

Image
You always wondered what sporty people eat, right?!

My first Saturday-chicken. A tradition starting now…

Image
I was not joking about the liver. I am planning on eating it every week!

Thank you for letting me share all these MEAT with You!

This is truly exciting for me! I am off to eat my goose liver paté…
