I've decided that I'm no longer an l/o, I'm just an o.
Wait. That sentence is so odd. If I said 'lacto/ovo', I'd have to so 'a lacto/ovo', wouldn't I? But saying 'a l/o' doesn't sound right, but neither does 'an lacto/ovo'. Oh grammar, where art thou when I needeth thee? Speaking of which, you really shouldn't start a sentence with 'but'. Don't do that, I'm such a bad example.
Either way, I'm still just an ovo-vegetarian now. It's not awesome or strict, but it's a start. I think this time will be much easier, since I eased into it. Easier meaning both for me and my family. I've already gotten them used to the idea of rice milk in recipes, non-dairy cheese, tofu sour cream... etc. In fact, they've all agreed that most of the stuff has tasted just as good as the 'real' thing (like my stuff is... fake? I guess it doesn't exist, huh). Except for my brother, of course.
He saw my cheese, and he said 'that does NOT look like cheese'. Only... it does. And if I put it on his cheese sandwich when he wasn't looking, I swear he wouldn't be able to tell, either by taste or sight.
Anyhow. Hurrah! And the only eggs I eat now are from our own chickens, I don't eat eggs in processed foods, nor ones that are store-bought. Again, not supreme, but a start.
I'm also trying to be more conscious about the products I buy, checking labels and ingredients beforehand. I'll still use the stuff I already have, but I won't accept more of the same.
Mum prefers cotton over most other fabrics anyway, so clothes are 90% animal-free. And I'm no connoisseur, so I'll do polyester/nylon blends any day XD
Sorry, going off topic. Uhmm... yeah, dairy-free me, at last.
