    I love that you took the opportunity to blog about this. Hearing someone casually mention they are going vegan is odd, usually because there is such extremes either way, I guess that why I was so inquisitive. I’m very excited to see how you do, I’ll be rooting for you two! :)

    Thanks! I think people see it as extreme because they don’t want to give up dairy, especially cheese. That isn’t a huge deal for us because Cindy’s not a huge cheese fan, and I’m lactose intolerant. What IS big and extreme is the fact that we also can’t do soy. That makes things considerably more difficult.

    To be totally honest, though I’m not hard core enough: I do plan on allowing myself fish once in a while, maybe once a month. Besides, fish isn’t meat, right? (Seriously WTF kind of logic is THAT?!)

    Anyway, rooting is definitely welcome. Thanks!

    Actually I had been a ovopescetarian for a while already. (Lactose intollerance meant I gave up the lacto part, and I can do quite well without either chicken, cow, or pork.) Slipped back into full meat eating over the holidays, mostly over the past 6 months or so.

    I may end up as a pure pescetarian, which I don’t suppose would be all that bad. After all, despite my ethical misgivings, the fact is I still believe some meat–not frequent–may be necessary unless you’re supplementing (e.g., B12).

    I think Michael Pollan put it best: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
