I have been thinking about this subject of going vegetarian since I was a little girl. Once I realized where meat came from, I got really sad. Then when books like Food, Inc and Skinny Bitch came out, I really started to look at not just where my meat was coming from, but where ALL my food was being made.
It’s been about a week since I had meat.
Last night, I made burritos with grass-fed, organic ground beef. About an hour after the burritos, my stomach was upset with me. I even woke up this morning with a continued upset tummy. That’s when I knew that after eating meat-free for the past week, it really agreed with my body. So, I am making a conscious decision to go green.
My husband, being the supportive man he is, said I will cave when I smell bacon. I will just have to show him this video and I think he will understand where I am coming from.
I even read the book, Eat Right 4 Your Type, and Dr. Oz agrees that your blood type plays an important part in your diet. Since I am type ‘A’, I should be eating soy foods, grains, and organic vegetables. No wonder I feel good without meat in my system!
This is all new for me, and my husband will not be going down this all green path, is anyone out there a vegetarian? I would love to hear about some fabulous recipes that I can incorporate into my meal planning!
