YOU MAY NOT BE TRASH BUT YOU SHOULD TAKE OUT YOUR GARBAGE : HOW BECOMING VEGETARIAN MADE ME A BETTER MAN (PT.3)

Below is the final installment of my testimony on how becoming vegetarian has made me a better man. Check out part 1 and part 2 where I share my physical, spiritual and emotional improvements.

 

“Smarten up, Open the Market up” (Mental Improvements)

 

I won’t say that becoming a vegetarian has increased my brain capacity and made me some genius brainiac but it has helped me improve on how I apply the little that I do know. I spend a lot of time reading ingredients so that I can understand not just what I’m eating but how it helps or doesn’t help me. In doing such I’ve learned more about foods that I already love that help my brain:

 

  • Broccoli – Most of the time I eat broccoli in salads or stir fry because I don’t like it overcooked. I don’t even know if it taste good or bad I’m just used to it now. It’s high in vitamin K and choline and improves your memory. Actually Ginkgo Biloba is even better for your brain but that doesn’t really make for a good side dish or creamy soup does it?

Right now let’s dive into my emotional and spiritual improvements.

 

*Sheds thug tear* (Emotional Improvements)

 

Although I haven’t taken an emotional I.Q. test recently I know mine has increased since becoming a vegetarian. How do I know? Because I haven’t slapped anyone in 4 years! Just kidding, I’m aware of it because I’ve developed a lot more empathy for others due to my sacrifices and scrutiny from people unfamiliar with being vegetarian. Empathy is possibly the single greatest  thing I’ve learned through vegetarianism. Through my discipline and sacrifice I’ve learned to connect more to other people’s circumstances whether it be voluntary or involuntary.
