Hi
I'm Fran and I am a wanna be vegetarian. I was a veg about 5 years ago, and my doctor asked me if I was doing it for health reasons . When I said yes, she said, "Stop. Soy is not your friend". a few biopsies later, I had to agree with her.

But I realized as I moved on, that I may not have been doing it for strictly health reasons. I am a tree hugging, animal loving environmentalist. I used to purchase me*t from a local farmer and assume that was better. I now know it isn't .

So here I am, trying hard to reconcile my beliefs with my plate and hoping I don't gain a hundred pounds in the process. That was the problem the last time I did this. All carbs no vegetables makes for a chubby redhead.
So any and all tips would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
Fran
