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.
~Michelle Macari in St George UT~ Lifestyles of the fit and meatless! What is it that should trace the insuperable line?… The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer? —Jeremy Bentham (1748–1832) A dead cow or sheep lying in the pasture is recognized as carrion. The same sort of carcass dressed and hung up in a butcher’s stall passes as food. —J. H. www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUMUvYLC5iM White Phoenix
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.
