I haven't eaten red meat since 1982. This old advertising photo has been in my swipe files since before I was vegetarian/vegan. I take it out every now and then to remind me of what I grew up with. I now share it with you all because I have nothing to blog about today. Enjoy! Interested in going veg? Check out VegNews.

If I became vegetarian, I would have very little to eat. I hate most vegetables - this because my mother typically boiled everything until it was grey and limb.

However I hate the meat industry. If we're going to have meat, every creature that is going to be put on the table, should be free-range and hormone-free. My ideal situation would that I were a farmboy who raised his own animals and slaughtered them - yeah, harsh, but at least I would know how the animals were treated and what they were fed.

However, I know the reality is - I would name all my animals and nothing would ever be killed.

Read Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle... :)

Oh, the world of blonde, blue-eyed Aryan people and their meat-loving ways. Remind me to link to this over at Touch Of Tuesday.

Veggie here since '90.

That fridge looks like my youth as well, although I do remember having the occasional iceberg lettuce or apple showing up at least. Little Buffy & Jody in that picture probably died of heart disease before they hit puberty!

Writer - You'd be surprised at how "meaty" some of the faux meats taste now. Morningstar, Yves, Lite-Life, Quorn, and Tofurky all make incredible stuff that's at least worth trying, IMO.

Meat. It's what's for dinner. And lunch. And breakfast and dessert.
Because Mommy is the butcher's special friend now.
