So I was raised in a province where this was a common bumper sticker.
And I do love meat.
This is my brother-in-law. The kids think he hung the moon.
He became a vegetarian in the last year and he feels great and healthy.
While he was just here we all watched this movie together.
(There's a website too but we haven't checked that out yet. We will.)
The movie talked about the environmental concerns of mass meat production and the health benefits of going vegetarian.
But the thing that really hit the kids hard was the way that the animals were treated before being processed.
So......they decided to become vegetarians. And I'm supporting and joining them in that endeavour.
It's going to be challenge for me to cook meals without meat....but I think it's worth a try.
It all started last night with our first 'vegetarian' meal.
Updates will follow.
