I was wondering if any of my Farming Friends are vegetarian?
I've recently decided to remove meat from my diet and am looking for any good ideas or pointers from anyone here who might also have eliminated it from your diet.
I have nothing against eating animals, but am becoming increasingly concerned about the quality of our meat and am very concerned about the mismanagement or cruelty of animals that are produced for food (regardless of which side of the 'pond' we are on.)
I stopped eating meat about 3 1/2 weeks ago after a casual conversation with a young man who is vegetarian when I realized that his reasons were all things that I feel strongly about as well. He made great sense when he said that he finds that he enjoys a lot more foods now than he ever has, and is quite healthy. I still eat fish, eggs and dairy, just cut out the meat. I don't particularly like red meat anyway, and although I've always loved chicken, I haven't missed it at all.
Any thoughts and ideas would be most appreciated....
