I am considering going vegetarian. Maybe I'm crazy, but I really need to start eating better. First of all I eat way too much junk food. I realize that becoming a vegetarian is not the answer, but I think I eat way too much meat especially red meat. I am not a major animal rights person with regards to being a vegetarian, but eating less eat would be a great way to start doing better with regards to animal rights. I really need to start eating more veggies. Becoming vegetarian or at least a semi-vegetarian would definitely help with that. The other thing is that I don't deal well with too much fat in my diet. Don't get me wrong, I love fatty food, it just makes me sooooooo sick! Red meat is so high in fat and calories, plus if you believe the blood type diet, I should be eating more vegetarian anyway. Plus, I really should look at the Body Ecology diet since that is a really healthy way to eat. I really should at least do the food combining. That may make things better for me health wise. I think becoming a vegetarian will help with my belief that we need to start thinking about our impact on our planet. I think the best way for me to do this is to start by cutting red meat out of my diet. Then I can cut out poultry and fish. I don't think that i am against eggs and dairy, but I definitely think that I want to cut down on those too. Maybe I'll look into a vegetarian book. I should never have gotten rid of my Moosewood cookbook.
My goal is to be the healthiest I can be, for me, my wonderful husband and my 3 beautiful kids!
Wish me luck!
