IT IS MY VIEW THAT THE VEGETARIAN MANNER OF LIVING BY ITS PURELY PHYSICAL EFFECT ON THE HUMAN TEMPERMENT WOULD MOST BENEFICIALLY INFLUENCE THE LOT OF MANKIND…

i’ve sortakinda for the most part gone vegetarian. and, surprisingly, it was kind of an easy choice…

for 3 years now, meat (of most sorts) has made me nauseous. while pregnant with the boy, i pretty much ate fruits, veggies and spaghettios (yea, i know, gross. even grosser was how many cans a day i ingested). just the sight of beef and chicken made me run. to the bathroom. to purge.

even now, i can’t eat chicken (or really any animal product) without feeling sick. without realizing it, i tend to pick it off of my salads or just eat around it. i’ve actually had a bag of frozen chicken breasts in the freezer for a year – still sealed and unused. i can’t even be around the smell of bacon, which i haven’t enjoyed since i was a kid.

meals in my home usually consist of fish (which i probably won’t give up, considering the benefits), cheese, peanut butter and black beans, along with a major stack of green and yellow veggies (it really is amazing at how much zucchini one can consume and pretty much never feel full).

the boy also made himself a vegetarian. he NEVER liked meat of any sort. hiding in olives, mac & cheese and rice has never worked. he loves beans of all kinds and can’t get enough fruit. veggies are starting to become passe’, but he still eats enough throughout the day.

so…

other than the obvious sources of protein (beans, tofu, peanut butter, cheese), what are my other options? seitan? is it tasty?

by the way, this vegetarian kick has little to do with animals itself. however, i’ve NEVER been able to eat anything directly off of a bone anyway, even more so since “m” would walk on the plate with chicken legs (barbaric!!) just to freak me out.

BUT i’ve seen my fair share of awful videos on the peta website. AND i love my cats. AND i love my dog. AND i love occasionally change the water for my fish.
