I actually went an entire day on a vegetarian diet. Today I had oatmeal for breakfast. I have had to think why am I doing this. Well, for one its an ethics issue, for two meat byproduct, environmental exposure and general fat levels in meat is just about insane. I have been eating it for years but for some time now its been high salt cheaper meats and I don't get enough fruits And veggies. Hopefully this will help. Like I said, how long it lasts, where it goes, its hard to say. Its an experiment with no stress. Its a time to explore new food options, better health and hopefully a lifestyle change.
I don't have to give up caffeine, my favorite breads, dairy or other assorted foods. And I won't have to worry about refrigeration. Besides that I love pb, soy and the like. Plus fast food will be cut down. I will still eat fish for a while as I don't want to cut out to much and I haven't made a final draw yet, but poutry and red meats are out at this point.
Please note I am not bashing farms who make meat responsibly, I am endorsing each person to make a decision if this could be an option for you, not pushing nor shoving my choice a yours.

  1. Congratulations. I've been veggie most of my life and fully endorse compassionate consumption. it is easy once you get used to it. (finding shoes is still the toughest part for me!)
    As Kafka once said of himself - now you can look at animals in peace because you don't eat them anymore. :)
