October is Vegetarian Awareness Month, and when I mention this to my omnivore friends, they smile and say, ``That's nice, dear.'' Then they go eat a burger.
So it made a welcome change to share a meatless meal with Shane Close, former burger-loving surfer dude, now documentary filmmaker of Meatless: The Movie.
Prior to Meatless, Close would grill steaks or burgers three days a week. ``We'd have meat every day, sometimes several times a day.''
He went meatless on July 12, and began documenting a 90-day vegetarian experiment that ended Oct. 9, blogging about it at www.meatlessthemovie.com . We crossed paths on Day 78.
