    I have decided to become a lacto vegetarian.

    I have two options. Please tell me which you think is best. (I am also open to other suggestions)

    OPTION 1:
    Do you think I should just remove all meat? Because if I just remove red meat, it won’t make much of a difference because I don’t eat it much, and I don’t eat fish or seafood. The only meat I really eat is white meat. So should I just go for it and remove all meat?


    OPTION 2:
    Or should I just remove all red meat, eggs, fish, and seafood. And bring in more fruits and veggies and vegetarian dishes and THEN after a little bit, remove white meat and become a full lacto?

    Also, I have not discussed this with my family yet. I intend to, but first I want to see how it will work out. I am going to dinner tonight with my family here:

    Can you make suggestions as a good thing to get? I don’t really like salad that much also. I was thinking about the spaghetti primavera or stuffed rigatoni :)
    I want to make myself have more healthy choices when it comes to eating as well.
    Scratch that…

    OPTION 3:
    I think I have decided to start off my vegetarianism by removing red meat, fish, seafood, and eggs, but allowing myself to eat white meat indirectly, meaning, not eating a chicken but I can eat chicken soup.
    Thoughts and opinions on this?

    Several of my recipes for the week call for Olive Oil, but I have EVOO. Can I use it, or do I need pure Olive Oil?
