I am thinking about going mostly vegetarian (meaning no red meat with only occasional chicken) however I have no idea where to start. I am doing this for the health benefits, but in order to get those benefits I need to make sure I am getting all the nutrition. So where do I start.

Can't really add much other than to say just to cut the red meat out and substitute chicken, turkey or fish if you want some meat in your diet.
Thanks. I would like to cut out chicken eventually but still keeping fresh eggs. Good to know about the protein.
Very true on the protein bit! The "nutrient" that is most commonly missing in a vegetarian's diet is actually fat!
I second the recommendation for "forks over knives" as well as the book it was based on "The China Study". Both are incredibly insightful and informative.
I was meaning health wise. I don't want to become deficient of anything by a sudden change. Thanks and my kids enjoyed the pic!
