8 oz Korean Steak House // Las Vegas Eats
Not too many people know this, but I'm a pescatarian. I wasn't always like this though. Growing up, I ate a lot of meat (of course, I'm Filipino). My Dad would cook chicken, ribs, and steak for all kinds of meals and I loved it all.
Back in 2011, I was introduced to the Daniel Fast, which in short is a faith-based (and very strict) vegan diet with no added sugars and caffeine. For 21 days, I cleaned out my body and I felt amazing. I dropped 15-20 pounds and decided to incorporate fasting into my life.
After adapting to the Daniel Fast, I decided to convert to veganism completely. For the first few months of my new diet, I found that my body needed more protein to function; I scaled back to vegetarianism. That didn’t help too much and I had to incorporate some type of meat back into my diet. I tried chicken and my body felt very weird after. I tried fish and found it sustained me, so I’ve been sticking to this diet since.
I will say though, I still enjoy the smell of meat cooking. There’s something about a flavored and marinated meat cooking on the grill that is nostalgic to me. I think it’s because my Dad used to cook a lot in the kitchen while I was growing up. In a way, it’s kind of comforting to me (as weird as that sounds, haha!). When you live with a couple good chefs in your house (my brother is a great cook too), you learn to appreciate something like that.
