That’s how change happens.
I’m delighted to report that my beau of six months told me last night that he is committing, taking the first step and going to be a pesco-ovo-vegetarian (he’d already scrapped dairy after hearing a lecture by a vegan nutritionist)! According to him, it’s a very logical decision and he’s approaching it from ‘mind over matter’ perspective. Next on his ‘to-read’ list: Animal Liberation by Peter Singer.
Slowly, one step at a time …
A few weeks ago my supervisor at work [who’s also a yoga teacher], committed to being vegetarian. We went grocery shopping together.
One step at a time.
My housemate/cousin told me yesterday that given the option for a chicken or vegetable dish, she opted for the vegetable dish. She says how she feels better eating less meat and doesn’t crave it hardly anymore.
One vegetarian meal at a time!
I also met a lovely vegan gal at the art center this weekend. There were only 11 people in this group and 2 of us were vegan! It’s so great to think what percentage of the population is now taking this easy step to alter their dietary & lifestyle choice for the benefit of their health, the planet, and of course, the non-human animals.
Slowly, it’s happening. Consciousness is being raised.
Everyday I talk to people who are reducing their intake of animals & animal products, realizing how unecessary, wasteful and cruel it is. I truly believe this is the way to a more peaceful, happy, healthful future.
I challenge you [readers] to take a 30-day pledge to go meat-free and see if you don’t feel better! March is national meat-out month. Just leave a comment and let me know if you’re taking this on …
