A night out. A real night out
With a group of friends!
Ok, no handshakes, but also no masks, and no social distancing.
Outside of course, in the never endingly cold winter of 2020/21, but hey it was like the Old Days.
I looked at the menu, and it all looked lovely. I thought it was because I’d not seen a menu for a year… but actually no it wasn’t that at all. After about 5 minutes I realised that it was because it had ‘ normal’ food , rather than the plant based diet that I’ve eaten for 6 months.
Well you can’t just totally ‘ uncondition ‘ yourself can you? I mean you still have the bodily and mental reflexes that eating a certain diet induces.
So I almost ordered fish and chips… until I remembered that that was my past, not my future. Of course fish and chips tastes lovely, certainly better than tofu with salad… 🤦♂️ but hey it would be definitely far less environmentally impactful if far more people made the decision to shift to mainly plant eating.
I can’t change the world, but I can make my own contribution, and encouraging you to shift a bit/ a bit more/ a lot more, so that our descendants aren’t living in a dead and poisoned galactic rock, with only video footage of David Attenborough talking about long extinct animals, fish and birds.
