Other notes for this Goal:
Done!

I made sure I consciously avoided meat and seafood in my diet. I particularly tried to focus on eating more vegetables and fruit instead of more grains, sugar or fatty food and only a couple of times ate processed fake meat. I took an ayurvedic cooking class which pointed out some other foods to minimise or avoid.

It really wasn't hard. I felt fine. I didn't really miss meat. The only times I generally crave meat strongly are when I'm sick but I didn't get sick, at least not enough to need meat, during the month. I'm not sure I noticed feeling that much healthier. Maybe, but maybe I would need longer to really do so.

This is on my day zero list, but I'm going to try to give blood first, as I'm a little low in iron and have to be careful in my timing for these two goals.

I have a list of Melbourne restaurants with good vegetarian options and love vegetables so this is definitely doable, I just have to plan it well.

My lovely girlfriend got me this book for Christmas which I think will be very helpful:
