I've always been glad that as the wife, mother and main family cook I get to choose what my family and I eat. The bacon smell wouldn't bother me but I definitely would not eat pork bacon or any pork products. I do however occasionally eat turkey bacon which is very lean and low calorie. I have trouble getting enough protein going completely vegetarian as I am not able to eat very large meals and actually have trouble getting to even 1000 calories a day so I do eat meat occasionally.

That is a funny shirt : - )

My wife made bacon, eggs, and biscuits for dinner last night. The cooking bacon smell just about gagged me.

LOVE the shirts! LOL

The hardest part for me is also my family. Two of my girls don't care what I fix em and the less meat the better, but one of my girls and my hubby are like, "whoa....where's the beef?"

Thanks for the great article. I am also a Texan, people look at me like I'm from Mars when I tell them I'm a vegetarian.

Since I decided to just be a vegetarian I have slowly moved my whole family to be flexitarians. We have TVP spaghetti and tacos and when they fell like meat I get them ground turkey. I have weaned them off of evil ground beef. I make lots of vegetables and pasta or rice to fill them up with small amounts of meat. Of course I can not get them to break the bacon or fried chicken habit. My daughter would eat bacon for every meal if you would let her.

I found the article very encouraging. I still eat more meat than I would like to. My hubby is a big meat-eater. The other day he remarked, " I never thought I'd see the day when a vegetarian cookbook would appear in my kitchen!" emoticon

Thanks! I'm vegetarian at home except for holidays when I cook a turkey breast, and when I eat at someone else's home and they serve meat.
