Since I ended my affair with fast food meat and unorganic meat all-together, I've had all the usual symptoms of a hard break-up:
-Learning a "new normal"
-Random bouts of sobbing....usually when I pass a Sonic.
For example, one of my clients brought in a bag of Taco Bell during a consult, and, I automatically thought, "I'm going to go get some tacos after this appointment." As I was absentmindedly driving towards the drive-in window, I remembered the slaughter houses, beef fillers and animal mistreatment. I went straight home and warmed up some soup instead.
And it felt freaking great.
With the help of some very supportive friends, I've discovered these local resources to help with my new eating/cooking plan:
The Living Kitchen
The Downing Family Farm
I have also put in an order for half a cow. Never thought I'd say that...but one of our church members is a rancher with organic meat, and you have to buy in bulk. My deep freezer will be put to good use come October....
I have to chuckle at myself...Sara has half a cow in her freezer.
Also, I have a small favor. If you have any resources to help with this endeavor, would you please leave it in the comment section or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org?
