20 Reasons Why I’ll Miss Meat on My New Food Journey.

So it’s finally APRIL and it’s the beginning of my new Food Journey after this weekend ends. I’m changing to a Vegetarian diet for a healthier Lifestyle and trust me, it’s going to be a hard thing to do, especially since I just LOVE MEAT. But hey, I’ve been gathering up a few great recipes from different cookbooks, through Pinteresting, and additional research for past week or two, so I’m super excited to share some amazing recipes with Ya’ll going forward. And if you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that I LIVE FOR FLAVOR ONLY, so my Vegetarian recipes won’t fall short of that. I promise!

Anyway, I decided to make this post as my FINAL hoorah for meat and I’m sharing some of my favorite dishes that I’ve made along the way on my foodie journey as a Carnivore. Some dishes will include their recipe linked below it’s picture and the ones that don’t, well, just enjoy the photo I guess. Haha!  (Just kidding).
