A Funny thing about being Vegetarian...

Thursday, February 07, 2013

I have been living vegetarian for a few years now, I have never been a big meat fan. Maybe my parents weren't good cooks. Needless to say, I want to incorporate healthy eating in my children's diets and show them the benefits of a meatless diet.

Recently, we were watching a vegan documentary on Netflix called, "Vegucated." It showed a few scenes of actual animal slaughtering. I tried to cover my children's eyes when this was happening, but they seemed strangely curious about the events.

After the movie was over, my daughter said, "I think I want to be a Vegan, mom." I said that I want to start eating vegan as well.

A few moments later, she came up to me and asked, "Does that mean I can't eat bacon?"

I laughed.

    I had thought about becoming a vegetarian for quite sometime & after watching Vegucated it helped me make up my mind into becoming one & opened my eyes! I've never been a big fan of meat myself & luckily I like fruits & veggies never liked bacon lol so it's been going good for me.

    People sure do love their bacon! Perhaps eating mostly vegan is okay with just a little meat from time to time. But I think eventually if we avoid it completely we will lose our taste for it and it will make us feel sick.

    That's funny. Have thought about becoming vegan as well, but haven't taken the plunge yet.
