Vegetarian Persuasion



Hey People! Wow, it's been a while! Yes, I've been a bit delinquent when it comes to posting, but sometimes life gets in the way, right? Also, I've been super pumped about this new writing blog my Mom and I are co-creating called Dialogue365. Check it out if you like!

If you've been reading After the Harvest for a while you may pretty much already guessed this, but I am proud to announce that I am officially a vegetarian now! There are a few caveats to this, as per any major announcement, I suppose...

Depending on your definition of a vegetarian, I may not actually be one in your eyes because I still eat some fish, some dairy and eggs. Also, I realize that making an announcement like this on my food blog officially makes me come off as some sort of food snob who actually thinks everyone really cares what she chooses to eat and not eat, but I guess I'm kinda screwed if I want to try to erase that reputation, now, right? ;)

My decision was something I had been considering long before I even started After the Harvest, and it has come to fruition for a variety of reasons, some environmental, some health-related, others more personal. The jury's out on whether or not I'll go full-fledged vegan someday, but for now I feel good about my choices, even though this year's holiday meals are going to be interesting!

What about you? Are you considering vegetarianism? Are you already vegetarian or vegan? I'd love to hear your stories in the comments!

P.S.: Even though the ever-amazing Michael Pollan still eats meat, I don't love him any less.
