Hello! I guess I should make an introductory post. I have been watching these board for about two months, since I officially became a "vegetarian." It hasn't really been much of an adjustment since I had slowly been eating less and less meat for about a year. I finally made the decision to cut it out entirely after watching Oprah's episode on meat processing plants (I'm sure you know the episode that I'm talking about). Watching dead cows hanging from hooks on a conveyor belt broke my heart. I have had no cravings and absolutely no desire to return to meat. It's been much easier than I thought it would be. I figured I should join some sort of vegetarian community since I don't really know anyone else that eats like I do.
