I was going to put this link in the thread that discussed whether or not it was OK to eat dairy and eggs but by the time I remembered where I had downloaded the book, the discussion had turned to B-12.
"Vegan: The New Ethics of Eating" is available as a free download pdf file. I've been reading it and it's solidified my resolve to be not just vegetarian but vegan and to feed my beloved hubby vegan foods as well.
I was noticing this morning that his pot belly is nearly flat. He used to look like he was about 8 months pregnant! I'm so proud of him because he has ample opportunities to eat mass quantities of high calorie junk but he doesn't. I'm losing weight too but I still have so much more to lose.
The weight loss is now not the most important reason why I don't eat animal products anymore. The cruelty in the meat producing industries is so appalling it's almost beyond words to describe. I cannot be a beneficiary of it anymore. I just hope I don't find myself trapped in a situation like the one after my stress test on Feb. 6th. (I had to eat something fatty and I'd paid for a pizza buffet that had no veggie pizza.)
