Live Blogging, Flexitarianism, Raytheon, World Leaders Octagon

Today I’m trying something a little bit different. I’m blogging a post that covers my thoughts throughout the day. For instance, at 10:30am (right about now) I can post some thoughts here, then later at 1pm I can post more, so that this actual post covers a potential of multiple thoughts and ideas in one given day.

Sounds interesting?

Flexitarianism is, in my view, is the effort to try to be a vegan, but depending on one’s own rules, practices eating animal foods on occasion. This is good as a means to transition (eventually) to veganism, as it is extremely difficult for some to make that transition. While on the other end of the spectrum, some people can literally transition overnight!

Myself, I transitioned cold turkey, adopting a vegan diet in the mid-1990s, subsisting on various vegan burritos as a means to transition. It was also a low-fat way to lose weight too.
