Every once in a while, I like to check my search referrals and see just how google sends people here. One such visitor came looking for “meat on my face.” I can’t help you out there, but it reminded me of this sight I snapped in Italy:

    Hi Toby!

    I’m a 25 yr old Indian male. Been a vegetarian all my life. A lacto vegetarian to be precise. Occasionally eat pastries/chocolates with egg in them. That’s all.

    Right now, I am bored stiff with my diet. It is primarily rice based with a bit of wheat thrown in. I do eat a fair quantity of vegetables and fruits regularly though.

    Want to start incorporating meat in my diet! Looking forward to it with a sense of adventure. I have absolutely no idea what I’m in for. Often fantasise over whether a chicken would taste hot or sweet :D

    Need some guidance in this regard. I’m pretty serious about moving towards a meat-based diet and enjoy cuisines from across the world. Yet, I’m afraid my body might revolt given the austere diet I’ve stuck to for the past 25 years.

    Could you suggest what I should start with? And how I need to go about altering my daily diet?

    Hey there,
    I think the key to introducing new foods to your diet is to work it in gradually and start from the easiest foods to the toughest. In other words, I’d start with foods with egg in them, then maybe one egg by itself. I started introducing chicken into my system through foods cooked in chicken broth like rice, then moved onto chicken soup, then something like a chicken burrito. But I think fish is easier on the system than chicken, so I’d start there with maybe a little light fish soup.

    My main advice is just to take it slow and let your body ease into it. I have had the biggest trouble with beef, but otherwise haven’t had any major body revolts.

    For the record, while everyone says everything “tastes like chicken,” chicken pretty much tastes like whatever you do to it, so you can have it both spicy and sweet :)

    Let me know how it goes!
