I’m thinking of breaking veg…Advice?

I’ve been vegetarian for over the past two and a half years. I started out very convinced that it was the right thing to do, and I still think that vegetarianism is a very noble practice. I just don’t believe in it as strongly as I used to, so I’ve decided to go back to eating meat. I definitely won’t be eating as much meat as I used to –probably just when my family cooks quality meat, or for holiday meals– but I hope you understand my reasoning and respect my decision.

That being said, do you have any warnings or advice for when I begin to eat meat again? I’m sure I’ll need to go through a slow adjustment, to get used to consuming animal products again, but I appreciate any input you can give me.

stay away from red meat…..too much fat if your not careful!

    Start eating only small amounts. It could make you feel sick if you eat too much at first.

    You’re disgusting. I do not respect your decision. You had a reason for becoming vegetarian in the first place…those reasons didn’t just disappear…

    hmm…i would say mix it in with the veggies. start with turkey and chicken..and work up to the big meats, like steak and pork. anyhow, i don’t really eat steak that much and i mainly eat the white meats, as well as pork. i don’t think you need to incorporate too much meat in your diet. just eat it when you feel like it!

    You already answered your own question – take it slowly. Also, eat quality meat.

    Do you eat fish at all? Ex-vegetarians tend to find fish easier to consume than meat.

    You’ll eventually start feeling better with the extra protein. But again, take it slowly.

    Honestly, eating meat in moderation is more beneficial than not eating it at all is. The fact that you tried it and realized it wasn’t for you, gives you a leg up on the subject over most other people, but as far as getting back into meat, just eat it slowly and take smaller bites,,, it will be easier on your stomach that way.

    dont worry about it!
    switching back to meat was one of the best things i ever did,
    it has made my diet much more balanced and i feel alot less weak all the time.
    plus it made things a hell of alot easier for my mum to cook.
    i switched straight back to meat with no problems
    as did my friend cat without any trouble.
    just as long as you dont over do it, your fine to just eat what you want (:

    Dont start out slow, come back with a bang. Go to the local meat market and have them cut you about a 2 or 3 thick ribeye steak. Then only grill it for about 3 minutes on each side. Have some buffalo wings for an appatizer.

    i was a vegetarian for 5yrs.
    i didn’t have any physical symptoms when i started back eating meat.there was still some quilt about starting to eat it tho.
    but i also, did like you are planning. holidays and when i eat at someone elses house. that way i just eat what i am served and nobody has to go out of their way for me.
    the only meat that i missed when i was a vegetarian was hot dogs.

  12. Haha oh hey! It’s on and off… I basically just do it when I have time. Then I was messing around with the thing for Facebook and it accidentally linked them together. I keep meaning to remove it since it’s not a huge thing and I’m not one to flaunt with publicity. But glad you stopped by though. 🙂

    A related, but almost opposite perspective is “Do you see life as it is?”

    I was at my meditation class last night listening to a talk on perceiving vs thinking. She gave the example of looking at a flower, enjoying it, seeing it (perception), vs the racing mind (thinking) that is filled with thoughts about the flower like ” How big are the petals?” “Would this look good in my living room?” Can I grow this in my garden?”.
    She said very clearly that thinking is important and necessary, but cultivating not thinking can create a certain spaciousness in the mind that can open us up in new ways. Just thoughts…

    Your 21 years old, these years have the potential to be the most exciting of your life. So stop over thinking everything, and quit being a puss. Just live your life, and someone will find you. You’re not going to get anywhere trying to latch on to every girl that comes your way. Besides, most girls your age are irrational and flaky anyways. 😉

    I don’t “pay my taxes and expect to get something back”I expect government to define what it has to do, and then tax to cover the cost of those activities.Lazy thinking has left government bleeding individuals dry (because they can) and coming up with all manner of ways to waste what they take. When the people have been fleeced beyond tolerance and can’t pay any more the government are left wondering which waste (that they previously declared essential) to cut.

    “That’s what will save the world, I think. Not cloth grocery bags, sustainable energy or organic yarn, as wonderful as all of those things are. But returning to that deep, concentrated energy, that kind of unthinking thinking that comes to people in different ways.”

    “Unthinking thinking.” I think that's a very eloquent argument for art education!

    I love this piece Ginny. Well written.
    When I do my workouts I find that I'm free of thinking about anything but what I'm doing. I'm naturally an anxious person with a head full of a million thoughts so working out is such a great release. When I'm exercising I only have to think about what I'm doing, how I'm doing it, and everything else fades away. Afterwards both my body and my mind feel relaxed mooshy:)

    Adoption is a great if done for the right reasons. Adopting children and raising them Christian with the intent to “spread and overtake” disturbs me. Children should be raised in a loving house where they are taught how to think not what to think, and hopefully they will grow into a thinking Christian. A thinking Christian who can show others their Christianity, not use it to “overtake” them.

    Hi Alec,

    Love your work. When you made these books, a long time ago, what was you intention… I'm assuming if you paid for this yourself then you didn't have gallery representation or an agent at the time(?).

    I'm asking because I'm in the process of printing up 15 books and I'm at all loss of what my move should be after they are printed. To be honest I'm not even sure why I'm printing them (although I've had some shows and sold a few pieces), it's not like I have collectors knocking. I suppose I just love art/photo books and thus i'm making my own.

    This is a superfun kind of post.
    Though honestly, I'm a bit disappointed I wasn't in with the little blog group long enough for you to make a more lengthy guess at me.
    No, I'm not late 20's. I'm early 20's Barely. But I'm hanging onto that early as long as I can! Cuz once I hit 25, it's mid. Ugh. I'm 24.
    But I'm fantastic wellllll beyond my years. 🙂

    But I'm still proud of you and the banshee in your basement…

    Thanks for the shout out. The ability to find the humor in a situation is a good indicator that you are thinking outside of the box. PodCamp is/was a great place for out of the box thinking. Thanks to all the participants who make it such an amazing event. I'm looking forward to another great day.

    Thanks to you, Aneta, for recapping some of the more insightful observations!

  31. Velnon1 says:

    It’s not so much “gold-digging” as it is trying to tie down a man you decide should belong to you and only you. Yes, young women are that “insane”. Some young women just want someone to love them unconditionally(pets won’t cut it) so they bring a child into the world. This situation happens when girls are neglected by their parents and feel unloved. So yes, do check that condom, guys.

  32. gasstationwithoutpumps says:

    I think that teaching computational thinking overlaps with teaching math, but is not the same thing. Most of elementary and secondary school math is fairly straightforward manipulation of simple concepts, and does not require the “thinking about the edge cases” that good programming requires. The particular error that Dan made here was to assume that floating-point addition behaved the same as real numbers do, which is approximately true, but not true in the limit as you make one of the numbers small. Thinking about the usual case is often good enough for high-school math, but is never enough for computational thinking.
