Today is the day! Jeff has lasted one month as a vegetarian! I have to admit, I find it hard to believe that a man who could have once been the president of the cattlemens' association because of his high intake of beef, could last 30 days as a vegetarian without a breakdown. ;) He has pretty much consistently eaten the same thing that I have, except for the seitan and tofu. Although he did eat scrambled tofu for the first time yesterday at breakfast and actually liked it. shhh, honey. I won't tell anyone I promise!
Amazingly I had nothing to do with his convert to vegetarianism. We watched a film on Netflix called Sick, Tired, and Almost Dead...that was the beginning. After realizing it would cost us about $400 a month to go on a juice fast (that's for one of us, NOT both! and that's not even organic produce), we gave that idea up quickly. However, if we happen to win the Mega Million, it would be a great plan. :) He then moved on to Forks Over Knives & Food Matters. Next thing I knew, he was declaring his meat eating days were over. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. After all, he had been eating meat for over 50 years with no slowing down in sight. But he seems to have breezed right through the last 30 days and I am really quite proud of his accomplishment!
