Hi:) I've been vegetarian for almost 2 years. What made my decision to change was because of a project I did in high school. We were supposed to write an essay about anything that we believed in. So I decided to write about animal cruelty; which lead to me watching the Meet Your Meat video. I couldn't even watch the whole video. It was so sick. And to make matters worse, my favorite animal is a cow, and has been for about 3-4 years. So I couldn't have my favorite animal be a cow, and still eat meat. So I decided to change on March 31, 2010. It's been difficult at times. I still have a few cravings, but I think of all that I'm doing by protesting. I want to continue to be one for a very long time, if not the rest of my life. :)
I have been a vegetarian for six months now and I've never felt better.I've always been an animal lover. They are all just to cute to eat.
Even before I was born! My mum is a vegetarian before she was pregnant with me(:
Well, people are supposed to be vegetarians to begin with, no? :D
Vegetarian BEFORE birth! That is awesome - I am jealous as I have been vegetarian for 20 years and I am 50 now. I believe omission of meat is good for health and longevity.
its been 4 month,because vegetarian is very healty
I've been vegan for 6 months going on 7. Watched half of Meet Your Meat, cried my eyes out and immediately went vegan. No regrets. I absolutely love animals and cannot bare what the world is putting them through., I will not be a part of it any longer. Being vegan, has certainly opened my eyes.
Hello everyone! When i was 13 years old I was eating a slice of pepperoni pizza while reading a philosophy book. I came across a quote that would change my life forever. " For the sake of a mouthful of flesh we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and the life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy"-Plutard.. I spit out my pizza and haven't touched any meat products in 20 years. I have 2 beautiful, happy, healthy vegetarian children who share my passion and love for animals! A site like this helps to restore my faith in humanity! :)
Absolutely love that quote! Thank you!
I have been a vegetarian for about 11 years. I always loved veggies but also loved meat and fish. Then both of my parents had to have triple bypasses and then my mother had a stroke. I decided my genetic history wasn't very rosy, so I abandoned meat and have not looked back. My significant other is also vegetarian and we grow a garden in the summer and then can and freeze a lot of it. Our goal is to get away completely from anything caned, boxed or processed in anyway. Whole foods, real foods, is the way to go. It has been a battle, learning to do without a lot of things that make life easy like ketchup, chili sauce, salad dressings, etc. If I cannot make it, I do without. So, does anyone out there have a sweet chili sauce recipie I can use!!!!!!!!!
