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.
