Of course this team is for you! Welcome
You sound like I did this time last year. I cut back on the red meat I ate, then the chicken, then the pork and finally seafood. It was a very slow transition for me. I was a vegetarian before going vegan. I'm not a big cook but I had to learn to cook different vegan food dishes. I am married to a meat eater and 3 of the 5 kids are meat eaters, as well (not crazy about having to handle the animal products but it's my family).
Find a few vegetarian/vegan recipes that sound interesting and give them a try. Just substitute one meat meal with a vegetarian/vegan meal maybe once or twice a week then build up from there - if you want to.
You won't be sorry. It's a MUCH healthier way to eat and, yes, the meat industry is an horrific nightmare. Best of luck to you, Pat
I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand daughter proud when she looks at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.
