109. Hard to say...

well, specifically it was seeing the movie Forks over Knives.

But I had believed fairly strongly that the diet advocated by the subjects of that movie is the most healthy diet for many years. Had even done Dr. McDougals recommendations years ago (but had fallen back into a total convenience diet).

I've also thought that while I don't have an ethical or moral issue with eating animals per se, I don't want to be a part of torturing anything. Modern farming is torturing animals, imo.

Also, factory animal farming is not sustainable as it is currently done.

And then there is the "ick" factor of what is in your meat products when produced thru factory farming methods.



I guess it all just came together for me. Like I say, I've been aware of all of these things for some time.


But I've been surprised at how easy it's been. The hardest part for me is thinking ahead about food. I'm not much of a cook and have never been good at thinking ahead about the days food.
