Subject: I think I want to become a VEGAN/VEGETARIAN, but how?
Date: June 30, 2005 at 8:14 am PST

I have been lurking in some of the groups on this site and reading POSTs of people who are vegan(is vegetatrian the same thing?). It seems that thier life has changed for the better. I know that red meat is not good for us and I hate the thought of what they do to the cows. Have you ever been in a Meat Processing Plant? I have..OMG!! But on the other hand fish and chicken & eggs too? (ok chickens but FISH?) I have 3 Meat eating boys + thier Dad (who doesn't mind not eating beef after watching the OPRAH Show!) My two younger boys think Mac-n-Cheese is a Veggie!! Thats my fault as a parent. My oldest will eat some veggies and likes most of those raw. Wierd huh? They all live in the same house but two don't like veggies and one does? Now it comes to Dairy (cheese, milk, ice cream)...Why not Dairy?? No Animals die to give milk do they? We drink 2% milk, we think we may be a little Lactaid intolerant. I don't drink alot of milk period, maybe in a bowl of cereal or milk-n-cookies or something. It tears my stomach up. I hope ya'll don't think I'm stupid with all these questions. Oh yeah What about Seafood? My hubby is not in the greatest of health either. (Well niether am I, really), but he has Type IV Familiar Hyperlipidemia (a blood disorder)Very high Cholesterol and Trigylcerides & High Blood Pressure of course. I am overweight and so is he. Sorry for the long Post..maybe someone can help us. Thank You, Monica
