Hello fellow veggie girls! I've a struggling vegetarian, but determined to become a fully fledge vegetarian and lead a happier and healthier lifestyle. My reasons for becoming a vegetarian, are several.
1). I hate the smell of meat, the look of meat, the texture of meat.
2). The fat and unhealthiness of fatty meats.
3). The "cruelty" of killing animals, I know its so easy to go to the supermarket and pick up a chicken breast or whatever. But IF I had to kill the animal myself, I wouldn't do it, and therefore I think I should be a vegetarian.
4). There are so many wonderful vegetables out there to eat and celebrate.
5). I am not a fan of meat substitutes, especially as they make me ill, TVP, tofu...
6). I guess I am more vegan than vegetarian, as I am beginning to have severe intolerance to milk products that are making me quite ill.
This community is here to celebrate the highs and lows of being or trying to be a vegetarian, links and recipes are also certainly welcome.
I am not here to condemn anyone who is meat eater, that's your choice not mine. I don't like to force my views on other people.
