So I'm having sort of a weird mental/dietary shift going on.
I've always been a true omnivore. I will, quite literally, eat just about anything and I will usually enjoy it. I can count on one hand the foods I don't like, with fingers to spare.
My natural diet, as in the one I've always just found myself following because that's what I want, is pretty light on meat. I'm sort of an accidental pescatarian, but I would eat other meats from time to time. While I do have problems with factory farming, I've never had any ethical qualms about eating meat in and of itself. Humans have always eaten meat.
And all of a sudden, I've developed a really strong aversion to all meats.
It's happened sometime over the past month or two. The first time I really noticed it was actually on Thanksgiving. I was just having a really hard time, mentally, wanting to eat turkey. I kept thinking, it's... a dead thing. That I'm picking pieces off of.
Today, I ate shrimp. Seafood is normally the type of meat I eat the most of. I like shrimp. A lot.
But I had to actually force myself to finish. I kept thinking in my head that it's this dead thing. And I can feel the pieces of it, its body parts, in my teeth.
Meat suddenly doesn't seem like food to me. It's just... not food. Which is weird, considering the time of year. I usually want meat more when it starts to get cold.
I dunno what's going on. Like I said, I've never had any problems with eating meat. This has just suddenly popped up for me. Anyone ever had something like this?
