Looking for stories on leaving vegetarianism
February 1, 2012 6:21 PM Subscribe
I'm considering eating meat again after more than a decade of being a vegetarian. I'm looking for blogs or long articles about going back to meat after a significant period without it. I'm looking for people talking about why the change happened and how they re-acclimated themselves to meat. I would also welcome articles about people who struggled with it but stayed vegetarians anyway.

If it matters, I stopped eating meat for a variety of reasons that hit basically all the big categories, health, environment, and ethical. I'm considering changing my position because, well, mainly ennui, but also I'm tired of missing out when there's a big family meal and as my curiosity about cooking grows, I get more tired of changing around the recipes to be vegetarian. The options for locally sourced meat are also way better than they were when I started all of this. I don't think those are very strong reasons, but I've not been able to shake this desire for months now. I generally found not eating meat to be a breeze up until recently, so my struggle with it lately makes me wonder if my body's trying to tell me something, or if this is something that made a lot of sense to 20 year old me and makes less sense now that I'm in my 30s.
