Family cloth. I have a fear of other's fecal matter. I can handle my children's when they are babies, but anyone else's, no way. Give me a plant based toilet paper instead. (If that doesn't already exist)
I don't do plastic Xmas trees either. For me a real tree is a real big deal at Christmas. And if you buy them in the right place (not cheap but worth it) you know they have planted one for the one you have bought.
This might be a cardinal sin of environmentalism. But I don't think I can ever completely cut meat out of my diet. I am doing my best to limit red meat though.
I tried to cut down on meat in the last few months, but with being pregnant, I found myself not even getting close to the recommended amount of protien needed per day. That and when I developed gestational diabetes, I found that many vegetarian foods made my blood sugar sky rocket. (Beans especially!) And I don't know if this is just a pregnant woman instinct, but for some reason I'm afraid of soy milk. This fear is espeically stupid because I eat soy sauce all the time and soy is practically in everything. I hope it's just pregnancy hormones.
One day, I want to be a pescatarian. I've caught and boned fish so I do know what goes into preparing. I would probably eat chicken occasionally. It will be hard because my husband is practically a carnivor and he hates most vegetables. I worry about him eating too much processed meat. My husbands parents raise chickens as a hobby and we get eggs from them all the time. (They are free range but but in a barn at night because of wild animals. Sometimes, raccoons and foxes still managed to claw into the chicken house.)
