I'm a vegetarian*
Dissecting a raw chicken breast from the store for biology class may have been the starting point. Well maybe I didn't exactly stop because I remember eating a swiss and mushroom stuffed steak on prom night. Classy and quite girly right?
I got to college and we had this all you can eat style cafeteria. It took me about a month to decide that all of the meat was pretty nasty. And then some guys made a bet that they couldn't go a month without eating meat. I joined the bet - and well that was the end of meat for me. Except BACON. Why is bacon one of the best foods on earth? I feel like the little doggy commercial - "Who wants some bacon, who wants some bacon, huh, huh?" Yeah - that just made my mouth water. And when I was pregnant, I may or may not have eaten nearly an entire package of hard salami in one sitting. In Mexico. Twice. Until I realized the second package was rancid. But that didn't really stop me from eating it -just waited until I got back home. And the same thing may have happened in my second pregnancy. So now you know how to tell if I am pregnant.
I still don't eat any beef, pork, turkey, or chicken. But the husband introduced me to fresh fish - something that is totally unheard of in the midwest unless you want walleye - and I have to say I do like a great piece of tuna. Raw. But that is how the fuzzy granola life started.
