My dad once briefly mentioned an episode "This American Life" that was all about slaughter houses. Apparently one of the crew members never ate meat again after spending a day at a hog processing plant. Now, I do have a secret crush on Ira Glass, but I've purposely never watched that episode because I always thought I would end up like the crew member who couldn't eat meat again--and meat is very tasty. Oh, I also skipped the chapter in Fast Food Nation about the meat-packing industry for the same reason. Plus, Nic has to have meat with every meal and do I really want to create more foods that he likes and I don't?
So I'm experimenting with my own version of vegetarianism just for the month of May. I say it's my own version because I'm including seafood in my diet and that doesn't really count as actually being vegetarian; I just want to see how I feel cutting other meats out of my eating habits.
Nic is being surprisingly supportive considering this pretty much goes against his entire upbringing. He did, however, make me promise to go to Goodwood with him on June 1.
