Selective Vegetarian

Leave a comment

So I like to call myself a selective vegetarian. I am not against meat as a protein source…I HOWEVER AM against the cruelty of animals, factory farming, and unnecessary injecting of steroids and other ‘additives’.
SO…what protein do I eat? Plenty! Majority comes from Shakes. Eggs–>My sister has chickens where I get my eggs OR I purchase a local farm store/source. Venison–> My brother hunts and venison is actually my preferred meat to eat! Beyond my family resources I eat meat when I KNOW WHERE it came from, how it was raised, and where it was ‘processed’. I have a FANTASTIC restaurant right in my home town (Props to ‘The Schoolhouse Inn & Restaurant) where I feel comfortable ordering a burger from & that I purchase my ground beef from and occasionally. As for other ‘meat’ sources- I eat seafood and fish and occasionally purchase other meat from local farm stores (like chicken or turkey). BUT animals isn’t the only source!  Grains, Nuts, Seeds, Beans…and MORE are great sources too! Check out this link for great breakdown of other sources of Protein!

To each their own and I don’t pass judgment to others people’s choices because that is THEIR choice BUT I feel confident and comfortable with my choice and would only strongly encourage that people support their local farmers anyway the BEST that they can WHICH in the end is better for everyone (animals too)!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
