I was rather dismayed when my boyfriend voiced his intention to become vegetarian. Truth be told, I'd seen it coming. All the literature he had been reading on the subject of yoga and meditation, his new interest, had emphasized the importance of a meat-free diet.
We've been vegetarian at home now since Christmas, he loves it and I've got used to it. I am not vegetarian but I now realise I can live without meat in most of my meals. I also believe it would be beneficial to the environment and animal happiness if we ate less meat.
My ideal would be that we all ate meat two or three meals a week, at most, and then we could afford to eat good meat. Meat from organic farms and happy animals. It isn't our right to have cheap meat for each meal of the day. Animals and the earth suffer to provide us with this 'right'.
Plus, guess what, I've discovered vegetarian food can be wonderfully delicious! I hope you will agree because I plan to share our food with you. I would love to hear from you if you try any recipes. Let me know how they turn out.
