I'm not going vegetarian, I'm just forgoing meat. I'm not excluding it completely, either. I plan to eliminate it from my day-to-day consumption but fully reserve the right to have turkey at Thanksgiving (if I last that long), have the occasional steak if someone I know butcher's a cow(1), or have BBQ next time I'm in Austin.
I'm a meat lovers pizza-type of guy so I expect this to be hard. I'll have fish as a default choice if I'm stuck somewhere, but since I don't like fish or seafood in general, it's not much of a comfort.
I should point out this is not a Peta-like philosophical choice. It's borne from need for a change as opposed to a protest of how cows are treated in western Nebraska.
I'm not sure how long I'll run with this but, like any good blogger, I plan to share my experiences here on the blog. Wish me luck!
