Hi everybody. I'm 24, and new to the community. This is my first post, so here's a little bit about me.
I work retail, and enjoy photography as a hobby (would love for it to be my career). I am a Ovo-Lacto Vegetarian (is a vegetarian who does not eat beef, pork, poultry, fish, shellfish or animal flesh of any kind, but is willing to consume dairy and egg products). I made the change the start of the year since my partner is a vegetarian as well. She's a picky eater, and mostly sticks with carbs (like noodles, breads, cheeses, etc). I figured this would be a great chance to find out who I am, and do a bit of self discovery.
Turns out, I'm loving the change, and so is my body.
We've recently got her parents (my in-laws) to start recycle more than the bottles of wine they drink. They're even starting to do a compost (with the large pile of horse manure in the back field) instead of just throwing everything down the garbage disposal or in the trash. They've also started their own fresh veggie garden behind the pool, and use this compost to help grow them.
Well...that's my life. Besides that, I found this read interesting and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.http://sustainablog.org/2008/08/27/change-your-diet-change-the-world-a-recipe-for-eco-friendly-eating/
