Time went. I still was on a "Vegeterian diet". I rarely ate much meat in the UK to begin with as it was so expensive over there. I usually bought Vegeterian alternatives instead due to my tight budget. I must point out I dislike this new term people use called "flexiterian". There is no such thing. You eat meat but on a smaller scale. You still contribute to the killing of animals. 😭
Anyways, It wasn't until I had a chicken burger from GBK I got food poisoned! After that, I couldn't stand the smell of chicken anymore. Before I even got food poisoned; I remember I had a steak when I was at a restaurant. At that moment I actually focused on the actual taste and I didn't enjoy it anymore. It tasted weird and I felt slightly uncomfortable about it. The taste reminded me of the awful smell of rotten organs from dead animals that was left behind in the lions enclousers, back in 2010 when I was a volunteer at a Lion Breeding reservation in Zimbabwe, Africa.
But it was that chicken burger that food poisoned me, that really made me flip my diet upside down. Next day, I watched Cowspiracy, and I was hooked. I got so emotional for the animals and the negative impact animal agriculture got on the environment. So, I made space in the cupboards, I did research on Vegan recipes and from then on, I continued watching documentaries about Veganism. Let me tell you, I couldn't be happier.
