So a friend loaned me her copy of the book "Skinny Bitch", and after reading the first 100 pages yesterday I just had to go buy my own copy.
If you haven't heard of it, check out their website. http://www.skinnybitch.net/
It is definitely eye opening. I had already stopped eating red meat, after reading "In Defense of Food", but I was still eating chicken and turkey and pork. Well I am going to have to be meat free now. The descriptions of how animals in slaughter houses are treated was enough to make my skin cry and I thought I was going to cry. Just horrible. I can't just can't be playing a role in that sort of thing.
I went today and bought my own copy of the book, I wanted to be able to get everyone I know to read it, and a vegetarian cookbook that has lots of pictures. (It was only $5.99 too, score!) I also bought Martha Stewart's cupcake cookbook, I don't think I could ever be vegan because I need my eggs and butter for my baking!
So I am resolved, no more meat for me. Not sure if there will be any other great revelations in the other two thirds of the book, but I'll keep you posted!
