Oh I love this thread already! If anyone in interested in more information, Michael Pollan has some helpful reads, especially Food Rules, if you're short on time.

So I'm 21-years old and haven't eaten beef in nine years for non-nutritional reasons. I don't miss it at all and I'm naturally not very inclined to eat meat as a whole. It's fine if it's cooked in a stew or something, but the idea of a large chunk of meat [fish and a few pig products exempted] makes me a bit uneasy. On average, I consume a very small portion of meat about two or three times a week, and it's usually some kind of fish.

To get enough protein, I try to eat some type of cheese and an egg every day, as well as chickpeas or beans of some type. Also, I try to get avocados in fairly frequently to get the fats that I'm not getting from meat, especially if I haven't had fish that day. I don't ever feel tired or like my body is missing something, and I never have cravings for meat.
I only shop local for produce if I can at all help it [I'm lucky to have lots of great farmers markets a short walk/subway away] and try to eat at places that are socially concious, but you can't win them all.

Fashionista-ta, your recipies sound amazing! When I cook, it's always vegetarian [like I said, I'm a bit uneasy around meat] and whenever you post, it motivates me.
