however, i do not believe the only way to be healthy is to be vegan but organic and natural makes sense, common sense so i try to live as clean as possbile.
i love the tone of the book - how blunt they are!

i haven't eaten red meat in about 16 years since i never really liked it and because i love animals. but the book made me realize the ill effects of dairy. i stopped eating dairy and noticed a HUGE difference in how i feel. on the rare occasion that i do have dairy i notice it triggers my asthma.
i'm not completely vegan, vegetarian or pescadarian (sp?). i simply do my best to eat sustainable foods and to be an informed, responsible consumer

I posted this on another thread - just be carefully, there's a whole chapter dedicated to the graphic details of what goes on in some slaughterhouses. That may be too much for some of you to read, just skip that chapter.
I will say I do recommend it and I also have the cookbook. It is good to be informative about being a vegan and that lifestyle.
I love being a Mrs.!

I have to say though that being a vegetarian doesn't necessarily make you skinny. I've been a vegetarian for 13 years, but I have definitely not been skinny.

the chapter on the slaughterhouses was rough...FI and I are both huge animal lovers...but we both....ahem....got over it....
I have gotten much healthier and thinner...but on my own terms....less of everything...more exercise.....you know, eating less, moving more...old fashioned but works.
