I know that many health bloggers are vegetarian or vegan. I profess to be neither. I don't eat red meat very often, but I eat fish at least once a week, yogurt almost every day, eggs, cheese, etc. My husband (find him at The Breakup Note) yesterday told me that he wants to perform an experiment of living as a vegan for the month of May. You may or may not know that my husband does the majority of the cooking in our household (and by majority, I mean all (except for when I bake)). I'm slowly learning the secrets to good cooking, but he's a better cook than me anyways. This being said, however he eats, I eat. So if he decides to be a vegan, guess what I'm going to be? That's right.
I don't really have too many qualms about going vegan, especially if it's only going to be for a month. My biggest problem will be not having yogurt. It's ridiculous how much I love yogurt. Seriously. So, going without yogurt for a month will be akin to cruel and unusual punishment for me. But I suppose I could do it. I've considered being a vegetarian before, but I really don't think there's anything wrong with having red meat once in a while. I believe the only real reason to commit to being a vegan would be for animal rights. I do believe that animals should be treated ethically. I believe they should be raised free-range and allowed to eat what God intended for them to eat, but I don't think that there's any reason to not eat them.
So...to be vegan or not to be? This is the question. I have a feeling it's going to happen next month though.
Have you ever considered being vegan? Are you vegan? Why?
