I am either a vegan or a vegetarian...I am not sure...I am trying to work it out though...as it seems important to have a label! I like vegetables, nuts, grains, beans and fruits and I have found that I just don't enjoy meat that much anymore. There are other reasons why but I hate to get into them as others seem to really take this personally...like I am making a statement about their choice which I am not. My Hubby is a meat eater as are all of my children...in fact... I only know one other vegetarian and she lives far away from me!! My Dad, in particular is concerned about my health! Or, the economy...what if everyone did this? What indeed?
I rarely bring it up (yeah, I know I just did) but when we eat out people seem to notice my meatless plate and take it personally! I am not talking about how they cooked the meal and invited me over because I would just eat it...No, I am talking about how we are all out and I am paying my own way and...they want to know "Why aren't you eating meat?" It's like it's un-American! Y'know like I am missing my flag lapel pin or something! I know I will still cook a Turkey on Thanksgiving and I will still do a Sunday Pot-roast because my kids love it but I just don't feel like eating it anymore...
Don't worry I'll keep shaving my arm pits, coloring my hair and wearing a bra, an industrial strength bra!
