How to become a flexitarian

Like the idea of vegetarianism but don't want to give up meat? Try becoming a flexitarian. Here are some ways to ease into the transition.

- Set a goal of how many days you're going to go meatless each week. Start with one and work your way up.
- Try the tofu. Try eating new sources of protein to get those important vitamins.
- Go half way. Eat half the meat you normally would and fill up on veggies to complete your meal.
- Go for the grain. They're high in protein, fiber and other nutrients.
- Drink your milk, you're soy milk. You still need calcium and vitamin D.
- If you want it. Eat it. There are many meat substitutes that you can choose from. But in the long run, if you're craving meat, eat some. That's why it's called flexitarian.
