Save the Earth: it's the only planet with coffee and chocolate :)

I saw that on a sign at our local Ice cream/Coffee shop last night :)
Unfortunately, my post is not warm and fuzzy like the title.
It's about why I've decided to become vegetarian.
While I'm not going to give any gory details, I feel like I should give some type of warning that what I have to say is rather unsettling, and I totally understand if you want to stop reading and leave now.
With that being said...
Last night I was flipping around on Netflix and ended up watching a couple food-related documentaries. I had no idea how much of an impact the one would have on me! It was called Food Inc. It was HORRIBLE, but I couldn't stop watching.
I will not (can not) go into details, but in a nutshell, they showed the deplorable conditions that certain animals are kept in (and what happens to them) before they end up in your local grocery store.
I ended up having terrible nightmares about the chickens, and I can pretty much guarantee that I won't be eating any type of meat in the near future (if ever! again).
I don't know why I never really thought about it before, but I'm definitely thinking about it now (and can't stop thinking about it).
So anyways, as of today I am a vegetarian.
