Trust me, the more research you do and the more understanding from it the more you'll never go back to meat. Sadly you might grow a dislike to a lot of people and what they do but remember to see from their point of view as well

I recommend that you read and read and read. Amazon is a great place for veggie/animal rights books.

And P.S I was always told the tiny hard balls were lumps of fat and/or bone marrow.

Hey, welcome to VB! What you should do is go out ASAP and buy yourself lots of fake meat food. This will make you transition alot easier. I remember my first day veg I felt so sick and tired because that day I barely had anything to eat. Also, it's sometimes easier to transition gradually to vegetarianism. When I first became veg I ate some chicken broth and geletin products. I slowly eased out of them. This will help you to stop eating your favorite non veg foods. Well good luck!

Welcome to vb.

Taco bell has some really good options for vegetarians (and even for vegans, but that's a bit trickier). 3 that immediately come to mind is the 7 layer burrito (the rice is vegan in my state - leave off the sour cream and cheese if you don't eat cheese), the bean burrito and the 1/2 pound burrito without the meat (it basically leaves beans, rice and tomatoes if they remember to put the tomatoes on ).

In fact, a lot of places have good options if you're willing to use a bit of creativity and maybe a (very) polite request to substitute one thing for another (I try to limit my requests to one or two simple things so no one gets upset at me). Heck, I've even found good meals in steakhouses. It wasn't easy, but I did it.

Oh, and those mystery bits floating around in meat (especially ground meat). Those bits are bone, cartlidge, grissle, marrow and whatever else the butcher forgot to trim off the meat/couldn't cut off completely. Damn nasty when you think about it, isn't it?

Welcome! Some authors I recommend: John Robbins, T. Colin Campbell, Howard Lyman. Search amazon.com or your local library.

There are two approaches you can take: gradual or all-at-once. I personally think that the gradual approach has greater chance of success. Going veggie isn't just about eliminating meat from your diet, it's about substituting better food in its place, and this takes time, training, and experimentation.

Regardless of which approach you choose, we're here to help!

From Taco Bell Website:

Are there any items on your menu that are prepared without meat?

A: Several Taco Bell items do not include meat as an ingredient. Popular ones include the classic Bean Burrito, 1/2 lb. Bean Burrito Especial, 7-Layer Burrito, and Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes side item (the last two feature sour cream, which contains a very small amount of gelatin which is naturally animal-based). Of course you can also request that any item on the menu be prepared without meat or sour cream. The enzymes used in the production of our cheese, tortillas, and flatbread are not from an animal source.
