Healthy (and Sustainable) Eating

Since last summer, my food philosophy has been to eat meat alternatives whenever possible. If there are other options, I will choose to eat those over meat. I spent last summer with a very good friend, who rarely – if ever – eats meat because she had researched animal cruelty on chicken and cow farms. She is not a vegetarian by definition because sometimes she "cheats" and eats free-range chicken or fish. Her diet inspired me to change how I eat. Now I eat chicken and fish, but I try to get protein elsewhere for one or two days of the week. In addition, I never eat red meat. During our stay in the Eco-Village, we ate vegetarian meals, which I learned is a sustainable way to eat and live. People do not need to eat meat for survival. Eve told us that much of the food we were eating was grown on-site, and on the tour, I was able to see where some of the food was grown. One thing I observed, however, was that several of our meals appeared to lack protein. As someone who follows a low-carb, high-protein diet, the meals at Lynedoch did not adhere to my regimen.
