I've been mostly vegetarian for almost 30 years. The thought of eating a dead animal upsets me. Even growing up I faired best when it was in an abstract form i.e. ground beef. Thanksgiving is the worst for me as I wrestle with a big dead turkey in my kitchen sink for the family. ( My dog watches and thinks I am a god then.)I personally, do not need to eat meat to be healthy so I choose not to.

RE: WHY are you a veggie?
RE: Are you eating less meat since meat free monday?
I've been a mostly vegetarian for about 30 years. I have not raised my kids as strict vegetarians because logic tells me that we are biologically meat eaters. I have always had vegetarian maindishes (often Linda's recipes)in my weekly dinner rotations so the kids are comfortable with meals that way. I first heard of the "meatless Monday" concept from Women's Day magazine where they publish a menu of meals for the month with each Monday as a "meatless monday". I've since read about of what huge benefits there are to eating just 1 day vegetarian in reducing your carbon footprint. This feeds into a personal interest in eating locally and supporting my nearby farmers through which I've discovered a whole new world of what fresh picked fruits and vegetables taste like. They're really different from the supermarket stuff shipped halfway around the world and equally different from the canned and frozen stuff I grew up on. So it causes us to eat more non-meat because it is just so good and I've come a full circle. Funny how that happens.
