So this month is my 17th year of being a Vegetarian....I did not start it as a fad, I actually started becouse I felt the destruction of animals for our plate was disgusting, and inhumane. I still strongly have those beliefs, but I am also a vegetarian for health benefits. I wanted to encourage fellow vegetarians, vegans out there to continue...and for those of you that would like to stop eating red meat (I know ALOT of people who say this) I wanted to give kudos for effort, and maybe help anyone who wants to change over. I am proud of my 17 years, but in all honesty have not had a meat craving...I truly cannot imagine sinking my teeth into flesh again. Here is some info on the helath benefits for those who are interested...

Way to go Jocelyn and Sara...

Sara, I actually handle meat (with gloves) for my hubby and son. I have not tried to convert my husband, and never would....he eats so much of my veggie stuff, and he knows how healthy it is...but he does love his meat. By default he does not eat as much as he would like.

I only eat chicken, so it would be so easy for me to be a vegetarian. I have really thought about it, because it DOES gross me out!

My family and I are vegetarians!

I've been vegetarian since I was 2, but that's because I have a bit of a weird eating thing (long story!), my husband has been a vegetarian since he was 15 and he NEVER has cravings for meat, he thinks it's gross!

Anyway, congrats on 17yrs!!!!! :)

I also wanted to add, I worked in a grocery store more many many MANY years, and the amount of meat that was literally tossed out per week was ASTOUNDING! This food did not go to shelters to feed the hungry, it was tossed into a dumpster. Now think of just your grocery store, and how many pig and cows diead to be in those meat fridges that you see....most of them died in vain.....most will be fly food,maggot food, trash. It is very sad.
