I am not a vegetarian by any stretch of the imagination, but as of May I have given up eating beef. It was this photograph in the New York Times and the accompanying article on mobile slaughterhouses that finally did it for me. Believe me, it was a purely personal decision and not one that I would press on to anyone else. After all, I still eat chicken, pork and fish...and, as others would say, eggs and dairy.
This is the first food I have ever given up and it has been very easy, I must say. Is there a food that you have given up (anything from sugar to eggs) and what brought you to that point?
