About 4 years ago:

  • Me: Mum, dad, I don’t eat meat anymore.
  • Mum & dad: … <silence>

After 4 days or so

  • Mum: Dad’s worried about your proteins.
  • Me: Tell him they’re fine, thanks.

About 2 years ago:

  • Me: Mum, I don’t eat dairy anymore.
  • Mum: (after 30 seconds of determined looks) Then you cook on your own.


And this is how it all started (I am more serious about my protein now though).

A vegetarian, who is mostly vegan, but enjoys a plain yogurt and an egg on a cheat day. A fitness and nutrition freak who overuses the word “healthy” on a daily basis.

Nice to meet you!
