This is really weird, because I'm eating a hot dog as I'm typing this, but my advice is to go with what your subconsciousness is telling you. It may not be anti-meat as much as it is pro-vegetables - and that is a good thing!

Selkie, one thing i am never short on is veggies. My whole family loves veggies and eats lots and lots.

BD, thanks to you my office now thinks I am nuts (or more nuts than they already thought) because i am sitting here howling in hysterics picturing that.

Kaedsma, what time is dinner? I will bring the wine and Frank can bring the pulled pork.

I hear that it's contagious. You can catch vegetarianism from just looking at fresh seasonal fruits and veggies.

Kidding aside... 2 thoughts here.

1. it is possible that you are missing some important nutrient in your diet and your body is craving foods to get the essentials it needs.

2. Proven cure.... Cook some bacon. The smell alone will make your mouth water - take it from a long time vegetarian who still considers cooking bacon one of the most awesome smells that can come from a pan.

I had actually thought that Janet (the craving thing), but I have not added anything additional to my diet. I have only removed. For instance, Tuesday night I made I made a three grain mix with sautes zucchini and string beans. The zucchini was mixed in with the grains, but the beans were on the side. Normally, I would have mixed in some chicken as well, but this time I just left it out. Last night we had a salad for dinner. Again, normally I would add chicken, but this time I left it out. I am starting to wonder if it is not so much a craving for something that I am not getting, but maybe the opposite. Maybe I was getting too much of something from the meat and my body is telling me to cut it out.

Bacon is the cure for everything. Maybe if we put some bacon in our safe deposit boxes the economy would improve. I would be willing to give it a shot.

GB.... Could be your body telling you something. ;)
While I would be tempted to celebrate an aversion to meat in anyone, I would say you might want to bone up on your zinc and see if it does not look more appetizing again. Then ummmmm... become vegetarian. :D

Ok we have lots of vegetarians on the site and I am sure that they will encourge you to load up on the veggies while in the mood. So I am going to post a plate loaded up with veggies.

The steak looks good, though it might be a tad overdone for me.
