I have been a vegetarian for ~6 years. I've started craving meat the last few months pretty hardcore, and in the last few weeks bacon. Last night, in an attempt to make veggie bacon, I set my toaster on fire. Today in a restaurant, I had a veggie burger that tasted terrible. I've decided the cravings, the fire, and the nasty burger are all signs. ;-). In all seriousness, I do think it is time to start eating meat again. I have never been a veggie for political/ethical reasons, only because I just didn't feel like eating meat. I never liked chicken much, and I am allergic to seafood, so I was mostly eating beef and pork then. Interestingly, lately I've been craving chicken. And the 1/2 dozen times over the last 6 years that I've "cheated" and snuck a bit of meat (on the road, etc) it's been chicken. Anyhow, I did some reading and it seems like my best bet is to eat a bit of chicken stock and work my way up from there..anyone have any tips or experience to offer?
