Do you have times when you don't want to eat meat? Sometimes I think I would just like to stop. Now if I can just get Hubby to do this also I might have a chance of getting us on a vegaterian diet. Have you tried this?

I have been thinking of slowly turning vegetarian as I was told by a doctor friend that the meat we eat will take longer time to digest and is a potential health hazard due to the use of fattening feeds. He advised me to eat at least 5 kinds of vegetable on every meal that comprises of , leafy vegetables, roots vegetable, fruit vegetables and some beans and pulses. This doctor friend is a die-hard vegetarian. Though he looks pale and slim, his health is excellent. No high blood, diabetes but he is a doctor anywhere.

Five different Veggies for each meal. Does that mean Breakfast also? I also understand that color of the food matters also.

I don't eat as much meat as I used to. I abhor the inhumane way that we raise our meat so I try to keep it to a minimum. I suppose I could stop altogether if I really wanted to. I know it would be much better for me, as I have high cholesterol. As it is, I eat a lot of fish and vegetables--which reminds me, I have to work in my garden-to-be today!

I've tried it in short bursts, but never for long. And R hasn't played along with me...

I personally have not tried to stop eating meat, but a lot of people do it for all kinds of personal reasons. For me, I eat a minimal amount of meat, but I don't want to completely stop incorporating it into my diet. Meat contains a lof of things that our bodies need, and it can be difficult to make up for these vitamins and minerals with other foods. Eating meat provides us with B vitamins and protein and iron and Omega 3s and 6s. We need these things in our body for brain function, energy, growth, and just to maintain healthy living. Some people replace meat with supplements and by eating things such as beans and quinoa, but I personally think it's much better for you just to cut back on meat, but when you do eat it make sure you're eating USDA organic meat...Your body will thank you.

It depends on why you want to be on a vegetera ++ It depends on why you want to go on a vegetarian diet. If it is for health reasons and the doctor has recommended that you no longer eat meat, then that would be a good reason as it would if meat got too expenses. To make one into a nicer person, and more loving no, neither to save the planet. The people before the Flood were vegetarians and only eight people were considered good. It could also be that there are certain types of meat that you do not like that much. For instance I love chicken and fish, but am not that crazy about pork, and I am not even Jewish. And do not try to change your husband. It will not work and he might resent you when you sneakily try a vegetarian dish and announce proudly. Oh casseroles and stews are quite good as well as Chinese. They do not contain that much meat and are a good compromise. Works well for me. I happen to be an omnivore.
