As a household we have decided to change our diet and eat less meat opting for a 4/3 split — 4 days a week veggie, 3 days meat. It is primarily on health grounds such as cutting down fat consumption but knowing that, in our own little way, we might be benefitting the environment slightly is a great byproduct of that change.

We're only a few days in so it will take a while to notice the full effects. Combined with better and more regular exercise this is a lifestyle change that should reap excellent rewards.

@colinwalker We did a similar change two years ago, and my physical health is greatly improved as a result.

@colinwalker Very wise choice for your health and the environment! My wife and I haven’t been able to pull the trigger on going fully or mostly vegetarian, but we have tried to bring more chicken and fish into the mix as opposed to red meat.

@colinwalker You'll be glad you did! Oddly, we've become mostly vegetarian without exactly intending to. (1) We became horrified by factory farming and try only to buy meat from animals raised in a humane way. The meat is harder to find and a lot more expensive. (2) The Orthodox fasting rule makes us vegan on about half the days of the year.

We tried a number of years ago but with me being a fussy easy eater who doesn't like most vegetables, especially those traditionally used as meat replacements, it never stuck. Fortunately, available meats replacements are much better now so this time should be easier.

After a number of very positive and generous replies to yesterday's post I have decided that I won't be removing my RSS feed from micro.blog.

A quick 2.5 km on the treadmill before bed to round out the weekend and hit my target of three sessions in a week. It's rapidly becoming one of the best purchases we've ever made. 🏃
