    I'm a pollo-pescetarian.

    In other words, I don't eat mammals. I still eat chicken and fish though. I stopped eating mammal meat about 2 years ago after reading a book on the Neuroscience of animal consciousness and awareness. I think mammals hold an advanced level of self-awareness and the value of...

    Texture Issue

    I don't eat meat.  It has nothing to do with animals.  I cook meat for my husband and friends when they come over.  I just don't care for the texture or taste of meat.  I like the texture of vegetables.  Simple.

    Last winter my boyfriend

    and I decided to stop eating meat. We both are passionate about animal rights and the way people raise them and produce them to be slaughtered is disgusting. My body has gone through a transformation since I've stopped. I feel lighter and healthier. I am never going back.
