Okay. Brace yourself. We've got news. :) And I'm just going to come out with it so that everyone knows and it's over with. As most of you know, John and I try to eat pretty healthy. No trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, MSG ( I get a headache just thinking about it...), no white refined sugar, among other things. So, we've been studying even more lately on this topic. We came across this lecture series on health that we've been watching over the past week. It was eye opening, to say the least. If you'd like to watch them (and you should!) you can go here. It will take you a little while to watch. I think there are like 5 or6 videos that are maybe and hour and a half long. But he made some really good points. Oh, wait. I haven't said our big announcement yet! I forgot. John and I are thinking of making the transition to vegetarian. There! I said it! We aren't really animal right activists. Although, living in an agricultural community I have, at times, been totally disgusted and appalled at what they do to animals now a days. Really, it's for health reasons. No religious convictions behind it, except we want to take care of the bodies the Lord gave us. Also, our diet will not become our religion. I refuse to feel like I'm "sinning" if some pieces of ham get thrown into my salad. Oh! The biggest thing I'm thinking of giving up....chocolate. I know! I know! But if what he said in his videos is true....that stuff needs to go. Of course, this will effect the children too. But they love fruits and veggies. Some of you might be asking "Protein?? Hello??" But did you know that plant proteins are actually MUCH better for you than animal proteins? Beans, nuts, and lots of different types of veggies have protein. Anyway, it's something we are seriously thinking about and will probably start moving towards. Wish us luck!
