Hi welcome to the team. I agree with Funky_Chicken. Check out the thread "watch out for this ingredient." If that doesn't put you off meat, nothing will. I will probably eat chicken and fish, but I am more and more making sure that what I buy is from a reputable source, is whole and recognizable....anyway, welcome

Well welcome to the team!
As for meat?I am slowly becoming more and more meat free. i still drink milk once in a blue moon. And cheese same story. But the more I learn about meat and the industry, it just makes me sick the thing s they do before the animal is dead and what they do with the meat after the animal has been butchered.

Welcome to the team!!!

I am a flexitarian and would like to be a true vegetarian, but I do eat some meat as it is such an easy source for protein and my family is not on board with my vegetarian thinking. Although, they are eating less meat so I happy about that.

Hey all! I just joined this team today. I must admit, I've only just decided to become a part-time meat eater, and it was kind of by accident! So I decided that for the whole of May I would give up meat. For no particular reason; I just wanted to see if I could. I thought it was gonna be soooo difficult. But to be honest, after the first week I haven't craved meat AT ALL. In fact, the thought of eating it just does not appeal to me anymore! Never woulda thought that it was possible!

So I've been meat-free for 23 days now, and easily gonna make it to the end of the month. My relationship with meat is definitely going to have changed; I don't think I could give up eating chicken, but I'll only eat it maybe once a week. As for other meats, I'm so done with them. There was soooooo many healthier alternatives. I love it.

Looking forward to getting to know you all.
