Now, I know here in the south we love meat. And Lord knows I do too, but I have transitioned to being a vegetarian for the sake of my health and I just wanted to try something new and different. I am not trying to talk you into becoming a vegetarian, but it could save you money.

According to Stuff, when you switch from a meat based diet to a full vegetarian diet you can save up to $1,000 a year.

Again, I am not trying to talk you into becoming a vegetarian, but I don't know who would turn down saving money. I made the decision during the end of December of last year. I was planning on it being my new year resolution, but it has turned into just an overall goal to feel and be healthy. I am making better decisions on what I eat and the only non-vegetarian item I eat are eggs. I can't let them go- I need my protein.
