Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well!
After seeing many documentaries on how animals are cruelly treated and killed, having severe migraines due to fast food, wanting a healthier lifestyle, and such, I have decided to carefully consider becoming a vegetarian. I have tried to eat organically, cage free, free range, etc from all my food, but still wonder about the poor animals - how they luce and die.
I wanted to come and see about any advice you might have for me in making my decision. I know there are many kinds of vegetarians. So let me tell you my lifestyle.
I am 25, recent college grad, married, 2 cats, and trying to conceive our first child. Yay! That is my first concern - conceiving, caring, nuturibg a child if I become a vegetarian. Second, my hubby is a huge carnivore. Although I do not mind, I will have to cook 2 meals or variations of a meal when I cook to accommodate us both. That is another concern - anyone else in this boat? How do you do it?
We eat out (not fast food) about twice a week if not only once. While I dint really care of beef, fish, or pork, I do live eggs, milk, and occasional chicken. I've tried Boca burgers and morning stars chicken and like those. I like tofu.
I worry about getting what my body needs and then what it needs to conceive, carry, and feed a baby.
Any insight and help would be great!!!
Thank you in advance,
