On A Whim

... I've decided that I want to try to stop eating meat. That's quite the transition for someone who's been a die-hard carnivore since he was old enough to grunt and pound his chest, but I think it's the right thing to do. This decision, strangely enough, is completely disconnected with my weight-loss target. This, as far as I'm concerned, is a moral issue.

I'm not sure I can manage quitting cold turkey (or any kind of turkey, really), but I'll feel better about myself if I can at least cut back seriously on the amount of mammals I eat.

I'm going to miss bacon. :(

Have a good vegetarian recipe? Ship it.

I remember a quote from someone, somewhere. "I'm not a vegetarian because I love animals. I just hate vegetables". Or something like that.

Bean tacos ftw!

There's this fake ground beef/tofu stuff that's actually not bad. My good friend is a complete veggie and uses it in tacos, pasta, nachos, all types of stuff.

Imagine my surprise when he announced his intentions. It's like being the wife of a die-hard capitalist stock broker and, after trying unsuccessfully for years to convince him to give $5 to the Red Cross at Christmas, suddenly hearing him mumble under his breath that he thinks he might just spend the next 6 months in a South American jungle delivering malaria medicine to orphans.

I just wish he liked cilantro.

Lol, I decided to check back to see if you're offering any dieting tips... but I never thought you'd drop the vegetarianism bombshell!

Man, I'm all for thinking creatively in my quest to be thin but meat is simply non-negotiable!
