I Temporarily Stopped Eating Meat and Here’s Why

When I visited my sister’s place for the weekend, my sister and I wanted to order a takeaway for us to enjoy.

She ordered a vegan burger with chips and a drink while I ordered a medium-rare beef burger with chips and milk tea from a bubble tea shop.

When the food arrived, I was excited and my sister and I thought why not watch a movie while enjoying our dinner, and so we did.

Everything was okay until the next day… which was horrid 😦

I don’t want to go into detail because, TMI (too much information).

I felt sick and was hot to the point I had to go outside with a glass of water.

Plus, I didn’t sleep properly until 7:00am in the morning.

For the rest of the day, I had to eat bland foods and rest but I had to pack because I had to go home that day with my sisters.

My sister felt a bit sick but hers wasn’t as bad as mine.

I later realised I had food poisoning…

from eating a medium-rare beef burger.

Ugh!

When I came home, I went straight to my bed and slept!

After that day, I had chicken with sweet potato fries for dinner and a few hours later…

I felt sick!

So, after that incident, I decided to not eat meat temporarily and let my body heal whenever how long.

When I had dreams of eating a dish that has meat, I woke up feeling a bit nauseous 😦

The beef burger has really scared me!

What do I eat instead?

For now, I eat meat-free foods (basically fake meat) with my meals.

I’m trying to be mindful when it comes to eating food and next time…

I need to be careful and stop ordering beef burgers.

Thanks for reading my story-like blog post on why I stopped eating meat, for now and in another blog post, I will be trying something.

Have a great day and bye.

  1. I really want a bubble tea smoothie . I can relate to the rare meat making you sick too . It happened a few years ago . Afterwards I stopped eating red meat . I still have chicken and fish ( well done ) but really haven’t looked back on steak or burgers . Some of the newer meatless burgers are really tasty though💕
