@autumn thank you! I dunno, I think if you eat mostly or exclusively vegetables there's no "bad" about it, it's good for everybody and everything! Although if you don't really like veggies.. well.. 🙂
My favorite veggie recipes are ones based on food from India - there is such a rich vegetarian food culture there! Chana dal is a staple in my house, there are so many variations you can do!
@cb Ah yeah, Indian food is some of my favorite!
@autumn @cb I did the change too, now being 100% vegetarian (my goal being going vegan some day). There's youtube channels w/ recipes and all that (ask me if needed), it helps. But for me it's mostly looking for substitutes on your go-to meals, 'cause I'm a boring eater (can eat the same everyday). You stick to it rather quickly after that.
Some American and European friends thought that I would have to give up on being vegetarian if I wanted to live in Japan, but they couldn't possibly be more mistaken. If anything, I'm having healthier and better tasting food now than when I lived in the US.
The hardest challenge was learning to read the labels, which is still a problem, but thanks to the Olympics there's more and more English everywhere...
