To eat or not to eat?

I just read Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. Not only was this read eye opening but possiably life changeing. I say possiably because I have not quiet decided if "Vegan" way is the lifestyle for me. I hate not trusting what I put in my mouth. Looking at my poo filled hamburgers and hormone infested chicken; does kind of ruin my appetite.

So is it fear that is making me change or fact? My B/F/F seems woried it's more fear than fact. Although, she is supportive, I know she thinks her dear friend has gone overboard. Or have I? How many studies have I read that lead to my fear of meat? Too many, but our these studies correct? I don't know. No, you can't always believe what you read or hear. People get paid to make the ugly look good, to make the unhealthy seem tastier, ect. Authors, like Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, are bringing light to issues most were not privy too. But a meat lover could claim they are being payed too. Each individual has to read this information and form an educated opinion. I believe that the meat companies are not as sanitary as we would like them to be. I also believe that we can live healthy lives without meat. It may take me awhile to figure out if a Vegan or Vegetarian eating style is right for my family, but until then I will keep learning all I can in order to protect my family. Cuz, ultimately at the end of the day the only reason I am "going green" is for the sake of my children.
