Subject:April eating experiment
Time:01:02 pm
So I decided at the beginning of the month that I was going to try spending a month as a kind of half-assed vegetarian. In particular, the rules wound up being that seafood and chicken were OK, but that I'd eat them in moderation. Red meat was right out, but bacon was an honorary vegetable especially if it was sprinkled in or on something like a salad.

How's it going? So far so good. I've eaten a little bit more chicken and bacon than I wanted to, but only a little. I screwed up once, when I went out for Thai with some coworkers. I ordered a beef curry and had it made with tofu instead of beef, then got imperial rolls as the appetizer. I didn't pay attention to the fact that they had pork in them until I was almost finished. Oops! It was only a tiny amount, though. I declared it honorary bacon.

My stomach likes me a lot better than it did last month-- I was right that my body doesn't like fatty meats. I don't think I need a hard line on it, but cutting down on meat consumption seems like a good thing.

I'm going to quit a couple of days early, though. Tonight's dinner plans involve flying to a ranch, and that seems like the perfect way to cap off this little experiment.

So after you end your experiment, what are you going to do next? No hard rules, but do you anticipate cutting down on red meat a lot after what you've learned?

I've been eating a lot less meat lately. And that's without any restrictions. It's kind of weird that it's so easy.

I'm going to eat less meat than I did before. And I've basically proven what I thought-- my body doesn't like digesting a lot of meat.

Conversation from dinner. "This is one damned fine piece of dead cow. There's no way I could give this up."
