Why are you a vegetarian?”
I’ve been asked this question again and again.
My first attempt to become a vegetarian started in high school, and to say that it was an epic failure is a total understatement. First of all, I did it solely to test my willpower. I was the biggest carnivore who despised all things green and leafy. The crackling sound of bacon and eggs frying in the morning was music to my ears, the smell of fried chicken was intoxicating, and the mere sight of a burger was enough to send me into a Pavlovian frenzy.
