A few times this year, I have almost felt like barfing after eating some of the meat. The first night I got to my host families house, they showed me the rabbits...and Christmas we ate the rabbits. I feel almost bad everytime I eat it...that was a poor living animal that I could never harm if I had to do it myself!
The main obstacle I have is when I get back to the US...ribs will be present. I'm from Memphis--we have a love affair with our pork. Any suggestions on how I could possibly curve my appetite for that stuff?
It is not easy, this whole vegitarian thing, but when I smelled some chicken at a very fine restaurant not too long ago, i almost was sick. And I just decided "I can't eat anything with a sweet face anymore."!!!!!!!
I quess, for me, the bottom line was: "if I love animals, how can I eat them?"
Not easy-though; you have to learn to be very creative; I am eating shrimp and scallops, things without a central nervous system.
So, basically, you just have to get in the mindset of not wanting to eat meat at all? I'm on that road with all of this German food that I've been eating.
And are you the type of vegetarian that won't eat eggs and milk and all that? Basically, what do you think is off limits for a veggie transition?
That's a vegan and I'm not there yet-cause that's a major leap-i try to limit dairy anyway just cause it's sooooo dairy! German food would do it-yech-all that weirner and shnitzel!
Alright. I'm not completely clear on the different levels of vegetarianism...not yet. I better get over to the nearest search engine....
Actully, the wursts and the schnitzels aren't making me think it over...it's the other strange meets.... I've had pidgeon/dove, bacon grease with spices on bread, ummm...lamb...and like I said, neighbor's rabbit. That's the stuff that I really, really am not being able to tolerate. Really disgusting.
I've never been a picky eater, but this country is gonna make me that way!
