hi. my son inlaw is a vegetarian, but he enjoys dairy and fish as well. Since he has come into the family, we are hardly eating meat at all. soups, rice and vege meals seem to suffice most times.

I work in IT, but making a swap to communications. I recently went to school and got my degrees, I'm a bit of an overachiever. I have an AA in Criminal Justice and BAs in Public Relations, Journalism and photography. I am 2-3 semesters away from a BA in Sociology also, but I didn't want to push it.

I plan MMO's, read, crochet and love to cook. Because of my family history and my health, it was HIGHLY recommended that I switch to Vegetarian. I've lived in Iowa my whole life, so no meat seams odd. But after doing some searching and really looking at what I ate, I really didn't eat much red meat and I can easily swap out the meat I do it to alternates. I just can't go full blown, cause I'm scared I can't give up bacon. And I can't do vegan. I like milk. And LOVE cheese. But I am cutting back. And I may try to swap to a milk alternative. But not soon. I plan to not eat any meat, but I can't say never yet. I liked the tern Flexitarian. It is more in line to what I can do at this point.

I've been meatless for a week and a half and so far, I'm not missing it at all. I'm hoping to loos some weight, lower my lipids, blood pressure and blood sugars. Because thanks to my father's genes, I'm a health wreck. Last year I had Quadruple bypass at age 39. WAY to young. But luckily no heart attack and no damage.

If you would like to know more, feel free to ask.
