Hello everyone! My name is Kat and I am a single mother of one. I'm bipolar and my son has Asperger's/ADHD (figured I'd lay it all out up front).
I was a vegetarian from 1993 until I got pregnant in 1999. My ex-husband was a chef and very pro-meat (rawr!), so he pretty much insisted on me eating it while pregnant. I'll spare the details but that is just part of why he is my 'ex' now.
Anyways, I have never been a big meat eater and I love animals...so being a vegetarian just seems natural to me. My son and I watched several documentaries on the food industry/etc a couple of months ago and it prompted both of us to decide that veggie was the way to be (he's 10 and it was totally his decision to join me, I don't believe in forcing anything like that on someone).
