A Peas-ful Journey

1995- At the age of 11, I stop eating red meat.  At the time, I was obsessed with The Baby-Sitter's Club book series and wanted to be just like my favorite character, Dawn.  She didn't eat red meat, so from then on, neither would I.

2009- Chicken suddenly becomes completely unappetizing. I decide that if I'm going to give up one fowl, I might as well give up the others.  I officially become a pescetarian and have to recite the definition of the word after every declaration of it.

Oct 2010- After reading Alicia Silverstone's The Kind Diet, I decide to give up dairy.  My sinuses unclog and my skin becomes clear so miraculously and suddenly that I can't help but wonder what benefits a fully vegan diet would have on my body and my life.

Nov 2010-  It's World Vegan Month [as well as Vegan MoFo for all of my fellow bloggers]! What better time to try out this new lifestyle than now? I hope you'll join me on my journey.
