Vegetarianism and Me

I would someday like to be a vegetarian. I think if I had never tasted meat I would be quite happy as a vegetarian. But then again, you could say the same about any food or life experience: if you have not experienced a thing, you are not likely to miss it, having never experienced it in the first place.

I don't eat a lot of meat, but I enjoy what I eat. When I live by myself I find I don't ever buy meat in the first place because it generally disgusts me to prepare it, but I will occasionally eat it, say, at a restaurant.

Sometimes I think I'm going to be a vegetarian. Sometimes when I think of the way animals are treated in order for me to consume my meat, I am determined to stop being a supporter of such practices. But then we stop at In N Out on the way home and a cheeseburger sounds really good.

Hats off to those of you who are actually vegetarians. Someday I will become a vegetarian too. But not today--I'm making meatballs for dinner.

I eat meat a lot more often than you do... but I knowe life would be better alll around and I'd probably be a lot skinnier if I ate more salads and less burgers! But I do try and balance it out and get chicken or fish more than red meats. I think that we each have our own level of vegetarianism.... and since you don't like salads yours is very mild :) Thanks for the lesson! I am glad to have such an amazing and patient teacher :)

I like meat too much and vegetables too little. But it's a nice idea.
