I've been a vegetarian for six weeks now, and I love it.
Now I think I need one of these t-shirts: veggie girl and/or give peas a chance. Cute.
If you're the least bit interested in vegetarianism or veganism, you can order a free starter kit with information, recipes, and more here or here. Or if you're eager to find out more right away, you can read a brochure online here.
It's interesting that the most common comment I get about becoming a vegetarian is, "You'd better make sure you get enough protein." In actuality, few if any people living in developed countries run the risk of protein deficiency. As for me, I'm just depending on different sources of protein - and unlike meat products, my protein sources are rich in fiber and complex carbohydrates instead of cholesterol and fat.
