Our Vegetarian Journey

Our Vegetarian Journey

And no, it is not because we hate the taste of meat…

Here’s a brief introduction on how we began our vegetarian journey. We had thought about becoming vegetarians for a long time; but, for some reason, like most people, we didn’t think we could “give up” our carnivorous ways. We watched several documentaries and began researching factory farming. What we discovered saddened us to our cores; animals being confined and tortured, raised solely to die, and living a life filled with misery, without any joy or love. Furthermore, the way in which factory farms are run have devastating effects on our environment. To make a very long and sad story short, we decided we couldn’t be part of such a twisted system; so we became vegetarians and haven’t looked back.

Even more recently, we have decided to begin moving towards veganism; though we do not plan on becoming full vegans. Again, after watching documentaries on the dairy industry and seeing how dairy cows “live,” we have decided to start cutting cheese out of our lives; we had already given up milk long before even becoming vegetarian; so it was mostly the cheese, and making sure “milk” wasn’t an added ingredient to any foods we purchased. We have to admit, it is a little hard at first, but once you know what you are looking for, it becomes a lot easier, almost second nature, to look for ingredients, and to know which alternatives there are.

As for eggs, we only eat farm fresh eggs or pasture-raised eggs. We plan to eventually raise our own chickens, therefore, only having their eggs; but, until then, we just make sure that we are getting eggs from farms that take care of their chickens.

Honey is another hot topic for some vegans, but again, we only make sure to get honey from local farms as well. That is not only for the bee’s sake, but when you purchase honey from a grocery store, you do not know if you are getting pure honey or not. But… more on that at another time.
