Hi all~ I'm Becca, a WAHM to 2 kiddos~ Anna is 3 and a handfull, and Aaron is 17m and the biggest sweetheart. I was a vegetarian for 3 years, up until I got pregnant with my daughter... cravings for meat that didn't go away pulled me away from my veggie-self
, and I didn't want to go back to a veggie diet until I had weaned her from breastfeeding~ WELL, I ended up pregnant WHILE breastfeeding, and am still nursing my little guy a couple times a day~ Anyway~
I've been wanting to go back ever since I quit, and I brought it up with my husband at breakfast a week ago~ Much to my surprise, he said that we should cut back on meat for the whole family... or better yet, just go vegetarian altogether. (he's willing to TRY at least)
We agreed that easing away from the high-protein diet we've had for the last 4 years is a good idea, so we're incorporating eggs into every other day's diet, so we don't go into shock or something, LOL, but all seems to be going well.
This is round 2 for me, and the first time for the kids and the hubby. I actually mentioned to him that if he isn't comfortable going ALL veggie, we could do this without a lable at all, and if he feels like having a meat dish while we're out, nobody will give him a hard time with it. But we're not buying or bringing meats into the house again.
It's more for health purposes for us~ dh has high cholesterol and needs to lose a little weight to be healthier again, and getting away from meats (and only allowing ONE egg per day) is a great way to do that with him. He's not all about saving the animals or anything~ he figures the slaughter houses are doing it whether we're eating it or not, and with us not buying it, they are actually tossing out MORE meat than before.... but that's a whole other subject. LOL~
OK, sorry for the rambling intro~ but that's me!
Glad to have a forum this time around... will make questions easier when dh has them and I'm not up to date on info anymore. See ya'll around!
