Take a look at this blog. It's a regular part of Huffington Post. It gives a very interesting view of a foodie who pledged to be a vegetarian for just a month, and what she learned, both for herself and how her family reacted to it. I think I could probably be a "flexitarian." A diet of mostly vegetables and grains wouldn't bother me at all. Well, except sometimes I really need a burger. Or chicken. And my husband doesn't consider a meal complete without some sort of animal protein. (His comment on Cochon 555: "oysters, pork, pork, pork pork and pork: the perfect six course dinner").
I would love to hear from you about your views of any part of what she went through!
