Hello everybody.

I decied to become a vegetarian this past week. While I have been thinking about it for a few years I decided to finally do it. I have seen too many videos of the horrible treatment at slaughter houses. The movie Dealing Dogs on HBO is what finally broke the proverbial camel's back. Not that we eat the dogs in the movie but it was another form of animal cruelty that I couldnt deal with.

So far so good. Although my partner is not vegetarian (yet) making vegetarian choices for meals has been relatively easy.

I hope to learn alot from the members of this forum.

cheers - eduardo

Congrats on the switch to a new food lifestyle! If you takes things gradual, you might be able to unconsiously change your partner to a vegetarian. I've done things like this with my parents like when I switched them from white rice, to mostly white rice & some brown, to full blown brown rice only. And now they're eating quinoa, amaranth, wild rice, etc! It can be done!
