I'm still in the midst of the aforementioned Skinny Bitch. Wow, was I ever clueless and uneducated about how animals in slaughterhouses are treated, not to mention the amount of crap that makes its way into our food. Methinks it's time to cut out some things for good, namely red meat, chicken, pork, fish, eggs, and dairy. Oh, and my personal favorite, sugar.
I am a rabid consumer of all of the above, so the trick to doing this is to cut one thing out at a time. I'm starting with red meat. No more red meat after this weekend. Then I'll move on to another one of the vices. This is going to be so hard because I'm going to have to learn about a whole new way of eating. I'm just used to grabbing whatever, but now I'm really going to have to think about it. I just keep repeating to myself, "Using my brain and good sense is fun!"
Who would've thunk that a meat-and-potatoes Texas transplant would be facing this dilemma? You could call it irony, but you'd be wrong.
