Adventures of the Non-Flesh-Eater
Julie and I have decided to go entirely vegetarian for an entire month. So far it has been one of the most difficult and tiresome ventures I have ever undertaken, and it's only been two days! We had Tofu in a dish for dinner this evening. It was terrible, and I'm relatively open minded about this kind of thing (well, I'm increasingly open minded about it anyway). I didn't eat too much of it, neither of us were really into it. Later tonight, I had some baked beans with veggie weiners, which actually weren't too bad, so at least i'm not feeling super hungry for meat right now.
I'll keep you updated. But I'm increasingly wondering if this is the way to go, even if I don't end up being a strict vegetarian or vegan. I like meat but I also understand the toll it takes on the environment and the ethical issues of suffering sentient beings. I enjoy meat way too much to give it up for good. But this will be a good indicator if it's an avenue we will want to venture further down in the future.
