Hey guys I'm new to the site, and starting to go vegetarian, my husband is in the air force at the moment so I figured it would be the best time to try it! Any tips or good recipes would be greatly appreciated!
My reasons for trying it are this. I am a huge advocate of animal rights, I see no need to be cruel to a fellow living creature. The simplest way to avoid animal cruelty is not to support it in any way thus my decision to go vegetarian. Also, over the past two years I have developed unhealthy habits in regards to foods and such, I am now making the decision to reverse this behavior by deleting a lot of my options/temptations.
My hesitations to becoming a vegetarian. I am a believer that as sophisticated as humans are we still have primal instincts. I think humans are higher up in the food chain and therefore eat what is lower on the food chain. (I understand how barbaric this may sound) I think as long as we have love and respect for what we kill and good purpose for the fallen creature I see no problem with it. Look at other creatures who rank high on the food chain. They hunt for the purpose of survival, sure we do not need meat to survive but I do believe that instinct is still wired within us.
My struggles. I like meat. I hate that I do but I do, this is no reason at all to continue eating meat, but it will be a struggle. Another is I am a mother, and I have read and been advised by physicians to avoid giving my son soy products and to feed him meats and dairy products. And lastly, my husband is a true carnivore and he s very persistant that meat is to be included with every meal or it is not a meal! lol!
All in all I would rather be a vegetarian! Any tips would be great!
