we've been ovo-lacto vegetarian for at least 25 years and finally cut out the rest of the animal products this past summer (except for our trip to ireland--more on that another day). my main motive, having become familiar with what really goes on in most dairy barns and egg operations, was to decrease my participation in unnecessary suffering. being a vegetarian, of whatever persuasion, can be a walk in someone else's moccasins--how most of the world lives. but we get to do it with a foodie flair most of the world can't afford. it's not about self-denial--it's DISCOVERY! next frontiers--wool, leather shoes.
