The more I see about the way animals are treated so that I can eat them, and the more I think about the environmental impact, the more I feel guilty about being a meat eater.

The thing is, I love vegetarian food. I'm not a hardcore carnivore. I eat meat purely out of laziness - I can't be bothered to be selective about the food I choose.

How can I take a first step to being vegetarian? How do I keep it up with a meat eating boyfriend?

HELP ME PLEASE!

honestly, the best way to transition from being meat eating to vegetarian is through becoming a pescatarian first because it is less of a hassle.

Honestly, take your time. Have one vegetarian day per week and then gradually increase it until you just eat vegetarian food. It's pretty easy being a vegetarian and having a meat eating boyfriend isn't a problem. My ex was a meat eater and it didn't cause any problems at all. Vegetarians are cheaper to buy dinner for and you can make food for your other half and he can do the same


Oh yeah, and vegetarians last longer in bed

Thanks guys! I do already have quite a few meat free days a week I reckon, but I should probably monitor it more closely, to actually make sure I have 100% veggie days. Then I think I will go pescatarian for a while.... going from that to veggie will be hard though because I love fish! But thanks for the advice

Going vegetarian is quite easy. Most restaurants are accommodating. When eating out I recommend checking menus ahead of time online or calling ahead. You will find as a veggie you can still eat lots of your favourite meals with a veggie twist. There are loads of recipes online. Just google what you fancy and you'll find loads.

It is also worthwhile making sure you are good at reading ingredients lists. It is not a legal requirement to label food as vegetarian or not so many still don't bother. There are meat products hidden in all sorts of things, especially sweets and chocolate. You may also want to look at changing your cosmetics for vegetarian and cruelty free ones. Good luck
