Alright, I had turkey last night for dinner.
I've decided this would be my last meal with meat, and I'm officially going to be a vegetarian. This is mostly because of my recent experience with abused dogs, the beached whale stuff, and almost hitting a deer on my way home from my sister's house last night. I've decided that I can't really call myself an animal lover and act all compassionate if I'm still eating meat. I feel kind of hypocritical.
Not that me eating a veggie burger would have prevented any of the above from happening, its just the way I feel.
So... vegetarians.... anything you can think of that will make the transition easier? Right now my idea of a vegetarian main dish is macaroni and cheese
, and I'd like to become a little healthier during this whole process (less saturated fat, more whole grains, less processed food, yada yada yada).
Any tips/tricks? Any good meal ideas? Anything to avoid? I think I'll probably keep eating dairy/eggs for awhile.
Thanks in advance!

I highly recommend Vegetarian Cooking for Dummies. Lots of info and some really good recipes too. Good luck!
