Hello Everyone! STRUKBYASTAR invited me to join this group and I'm so glad :) My journey has been an interesting one. I'm 25 years old and live in Lincoln, NE- at the heart of meat eating country! I have vacillated between vegetarian and omnivore since my teens. My parents never ate red meat, pork or chicken, only turkey (on holidays) and fish. I adopted this sort of lifestyle and never really acquired a taste for any other type of meat. In my early 20's I wanted to have a more responsible lifestyle and began eating organic/natural foods and moved away from anything containing pesticides or preservatives. After seeing Food Inc., I decided I wanted to read more about my food. I picked up Eating Animals by Jonathan Foer and The Kind Diet in October. Eating Animals was difficult for me to get through but by thanksgiving I had read enough to swear off turkey. In early November when I was reading the Kind Diet I thought it made sense. I was feeling all of the things she was talking about in her book. I just FELT better when I wasn't eating meat and was instead eating whole grains and vegetables. I guess I am what you would call a lacto/ovo vegetarian at the moment. I would like to move into strict vegetarianism. I've made a couple of recipes from the book but not a lot, I think I'll make it my goal to try 2 new recipes next week and post how they are! :)
Look forward to getting to know all of you!
