My wife and I recently began eating a plant-based diet after watching the documentary “Eating You Alive”. Our primary motivation for the change was the amazing health benefits. However, this change in eating habits brought another unexpected benefit… delicious tasting new food!
Channing our diet required us to find new recipes and experiment with new spices and seasonings. We’ve since had some wonderfully satisfying curry dishes, desserts, and stew. When we decided to change our diet, I had no idea about all the culinary discovers we’d encounter along the way.
I’ll admit, deciding to try a plant–based diet was somewhat out of my comfort zone. Yet, had we not made the decision to try it, we would have missed out on some new favorited dishes we’ve since discovered. I’m glad we decided to give it a try.
The next time you have an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone to pursue something positive, go for it! As you make the change, keep your eyes open for, and be expecting to see, some unexpected benefits.
