January 6th: Eat Vegetarian for a Week

Eating vegetarian for a week is my first big challenge for the year. One week does not seem like very long but for those that know me, I am very much a meat eater.

But I have heard and can imagine the health benefits of going vegetarian or cutting out meat on a regular basis.

I am going to start with a week and go from there.

To be specific I am trying Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian, meaning I can still eat eggs and dairy products but no meat, including fish.

Here’s a couple articles I found to help me along the way, as well as anyone else out there that might want to try it out.
