Been a vegetarian for more than 3 years now. I had a eureka moment one evening eating Domino's chicken wings, of all things. I thought to myself, "5 chickens had to perish so I could eat 10 wings. That's just not right." I stopped eating meat from that moment forward and haven't looked back!

I took the first year to be a Pescatarian, because I thought it would help me wean off of meat, especially when it came to cooking and ordering at restaurants. At the one-year mark, I finally gave up fish too.

I love my choice and now I believe in vegetarianism deeply. I don't know any other vegetarians in my life, so hoping to connect with others through this social network.

I'm also a Christian, and believe that despite what people say the Bible suggests about giving us rights to rule over the 'beasts of the land', that the system we have here on earth for raising and slaughtering animals is wrong, unethical and unequal. I interpret this phrase in the Bible to mean that we are RESPONSIBLE for their well-being. This is a big debate I have with my friends and family, but I just don't see how you can watch videos on the way factory farming takes place and say, "yep, this is how God wanted it." I simply don't believe that anymore, and I'm so glad I don't. I believe God looks favorably upon vegetarians for their compassion and selflessness.
