emoticon I am fairly new to the whole lifestyle and making gradual changes myself. My 4 year old is similar to how you say you were, it is hard to get her to eat meat. Looking forward to sharing and encouraging one another on this journey:)Stephanie

Welcome to the team RAINA413,

It is always nice to meet another Flexitarian! I am coming from the other direction. I am from a huge carnivore family and and cutting back on the meat. I have found the less meat I eat the less I want.

I'm new to this group but not new to being a Flexitarian. I was a vegetarian starting when I was a kid. I just didn't like meat so I refused to eat it. This was allowed in my house just so long as I could come up with an alternative protein to replace it with. Seeing as how it was the 70's and being a vegetarian wasn't "trendy" I ended up eating a LOT of yogurt and beans....thankfully not at the same time.

By the time I met my husband I was a full blow vegetarian and he was well on his way. This was about the time I started to find my healthy and weight was being affected. Coincidentally I also read a book about Thomas Jefferson a rather famous flexitarian! He believed that a healthy diet was one where meat was more of a side dish rather than the main meal. This made SO much sense to me! So, I slowly began to re-incorporate meat, poultry, and fish into my diet. Now I only eat my meats as a side, but I also limit them to only a few times a week because I am still not a huge fan of meat. Don't think I ever will be.

I am very excited that my Spark friend BONOLICIOUS2 found this team. I can't wait to see what new recipes, protein alternatives, and meal ideas we can come up with!
