I'm new to the forum and I am not a vegetarian, but I want to cut down my meat eating from two or three times a day to once a week, and then not more than an ounce or two.<br>
After I get that far I may take that extra step and give it up altogether. But in order to get there I have a few questions (such as if I buy whole grain products in bulk how long can I store them) and concerns (such as expense). I will ask those questions and more in the appropriate sections, however.<br>
I ordered a vegetarian starter kit from PETA and it should arrive in a few weeks.<br>
I want to cut down on or eliminate my meat consumption in order to be healthier, to feel better, and because I love animals.<br>
It is my hope to learn as much as I can here in order to be successful at this change in diet, which also seems like a bit of a change in lifestyle. So thanks in advance to anyone here who is willing to share what they know with me.

Hey Johnny, good for you! The PETA starter kit is a great way to start. There are so many wonderful faux meats on the market, I doubt you'll miss the old stuff much. I also recommend the book "Becoming Vegan" <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FBecoming-Vegan-Complete-Adopting-Plant-Based%2Fdp%2F1570671036" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Becoming-Vegan.../dp/1570671036</a> for nutritional information regarding a plant based diet. Also, "The China Study" <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FChina-Study-Comprehensive-Nutrition-Implications%2Fdp%2F1932100660%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fs%3Dbooks%26ie%3DUTF8%26qid%3D1301381693%26sr%3D1-1" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/China-Study-Co...1381693&sr=1-1</a> is a wonderful book on the benefits of a vegetarian diet.
