Eating Meat

I've changed the way I eat. I used to be a vegetarian (who would occasionally indulge in sushi or fish and chips). Now I'm regularly cooking joints. 

The night before last I was eating lambs liver on a bed of rice. Last night it was roast brisket of beef. The other day, in a restaurant, I had a steak sandwich with a mustard crust.  It was the must delicious thing ever.

I made the change for reasons of health. I don't have much energy at the best of times. Never did.  But subsisting on a diet of bread and potatoes wasn't helping.

I believe I'm putting on weight. I'm certainly changing my- ahem- contours. 

I try to keep things ethical. When I buy meat I want the assurance that the animal had a good quality of life. But I realise the labels I rely on may be bending the truth. 

For the first time in ages I'm actually enjoying my meals.  I'm enjoying cooking them too.
