Hey everyone,
So, I'm new to the blog scene here and want to test out this new blogging territory. Basically, what I plan for this blog to be about is my gradual change from a meat-eating life to a plant based diet. I am already a vegetarian so it's not really from meat eating, but from egg/dairy eating.  Either way, I'll be adding lots of vegan recipes (hopefully) that I want to test out.  It's also going to be about how to get my family to (knowingly or unknowingly) join in.  I hope to wean my family off of the processed junk that calls itself food and lead them towards a more organic, natural, vitamin rich diet.  I am the only vegetarian in my family, however most of my family doesn't love meat or anything (except for chicken) so I don't think it'd be so hard to get them eating less meat.  HOwever, they do love their junk snacks....oreos, famous amos, goldfish, cinnamon toast crunch...you name it and we have probably bought it :/

Welcome, RebelRox! I'm excited to hear about your experiences and successful recipes. We are not even close to veg or vegan but I'm trying to inch the family that way. I am campaigning for us to go vegan for one week as a family. Finding some incredible vegan recipes would really help my case!

We will be meatless two or three days a week. I only eat meat at the evening meal and my wife will take it frequently for her lunch. Slowly we are becoming less of being carnivores.

Hello RebelRox, while I appreciate the goal you have set for yourself/family, I am 1000% certifiable Carnivore! Beef & bacon runs through my veins. I am not ashamed and will never give up meat. Now I do have meatless Mondays now and then just to change things up. We do eat lunch meat and I do buy snacks. I cook dinner at home most nights. My kids are older so if they eat out, that is up to them. I only pay for fast food once in a while. I love a good salad and almost all veggies. Not crazy about fruit. Good luck to you. Come up to the Buzz and we can give you recipes.

Welcome! The hubby and I have cut down on the beef and added more chicken and turkey to our diet... I just can't live without my meat! Good luck and I'll be following!

Animal flesh is way too delicious to give up. When I left Alaska I was surprised by the number of people who are vegetarian- it's pretty much unheard of up there. Then again, many of us up there do not purchase our meat at the store... ;)
