How long have you been vegetarian/vegan?

My husband was a vegetarian when we got married 25 years ago, I introduced chicken and fish to our diet but about 10 years ago, we both became vegetarian. I will on occasion taste organic chicken or grass fed beef and will eat fish every now and then but I consider myself mostly vegetarian.

If you weren't a lifer, what prompted your decision to become vegetarian/vegan?

I've read and seen documentaries about how the animals we eat are treated and what they are fed, so I think eating them contributes to the cycle of this type of mindless and cruel treatment. I also think that a vegetarian diet is healthier for our bodies.


I'm an esthetician by trade, this is my second career that started 8 years ago after being downsized from GE Capital. I love what I do and like to take a holistic approach to what I do and how I live. I love healthy eating and well being.
