I’ll keep this one (relatively) short because I have lots to do and said most of the stuff in the first vegetarian post, when we just started.

Welp, we finished our month. We ended it with a massive meatfeast, eating (IIRC) about five different animals, so we pretty much undid any good we did for the world. Oops.

Anyway. The month wasn’t too hard at all. I didn’t “miss” meat at all, though I’ll say that my mouth may have watered a bit more than usual when I’d bike past Wings Over Providence on the way to my friend’s house. By far the hardest part was going to a restaurant, as I talked about before, where there would be just very few satisfying vegetarian options. read more
