31 Days of Meat-and-Drama-Free Living

I heard this fabulous interview on Progressive Radio Network andย  thought, Holy Moly this is perfecto for my No Meat March peeps! The guest on the first half of the show is the author of “Sister Vegetarian’s 31-Day Days of Drama Free Living,” and she hits on a very important point for first timers: The hardest part of becoming vegetarian is handling all of the drama and societal pressure that is suddenly hitting you from all directions. Your co-workers, family, and even strangers are going to begin to question and even try to discourage you. You may expect the hardest adjustment to be your new food choices, but eating and preparing delicious foods is for most the easiest part of the journey!

Give the interview a listen while cooking, cleaning or pumping iron today and take the positive words of advice and encouragement to heart. I ordered the book right away – looking forward to taking the 31-day Drama-Free challenge myself when it comes in the mail!

Until the book comes, I’m just going to create space within my loveable green shell to stay alert for provoking displays of drama from my fellow humans. I will close my eyes, relax, and breathe in and out for ten counts each, just like I learned in my court-ordered anger management class. I will then be polite and nice to the meat-eater acting all possessed and crazy and attacking me. You catch more flies with Agave syrup than with Umeboshi Plum Vinegar ๐Ÿ™‚

Peace, my Pea Peeps. And Happy Day 2 of No Meat March, my little Marchlings!

P.S. Here’s a funny YouTube video of common things you can expect to hear from meat eaters. Oddly, the longer you live a life of compassionate consumption the more apparent it will be how these same questions are being repeated over, and over… and over… and it’s even more strange how the same words are coming out of so many different mouths! The phrases are so common and predictable that a bingo board has even been created ๐Ÿ™‚

UPDATE: The original link to the radio interview was broken and it has been corrected!

Holla at me world!

To commemorate No Meat March 2012, I, the fantastical GGG Pea Pod, hearby do unveil the official GGG Pea Pod Blog, heretofor to be known as “The GGG Pea Pod Blog of Fantastical Awesomenocity,” or at least until I change the name like next Tuesday or whatever.

For those who have signed up for No Meat March , (and if you have not you still can all the way up to March 31), look out for my addition to the daily email of support and encouragement and fun and knowledge, “The Pea Pod Sez…”

Last night as I was chillin in a bed of leafy greens with my ladyfriend Ms. Carrot, we shared a quiet moment of peace and gratitude for the launch of NMM 2012 and all that is to come. Hundreds of Jacksonvillian peeps have signed up and will come together in fellowship, some even forming lifelong friendships or experiencing what Oprah likes to call an “Aha! Moment”, a life altering event. Consciousnesses will be lifted and raised, the Earth and all its living beings will gain new ambassadors and protectors. Hippy Dippy shit like that. And we are so grateful to be a part of it.

The newly updated calendar of events is here, the generous discount incentives to save you $$$ are here, a hot and sexy video of me dancing with my ladyfriends is here, and here are 57 Health reasons to take the No Meat March pledge as a first step in your journey to better health and the diet that is right for you.
