Hello, my name is Lucy and I like big words. Sometimes people don’t understand what I’m saying . . .

. . . So I’ll try not to use too many big words.

One of my first ever favorite big words was ‘vegetarian’. I’m a vegetarian. I don’t eat meat because I like animals and I don’t want to eat them, if you see what I mean.

My Mum and Dad used to eat a lot of meat, especially beef and pork. So from time to time I would try to offer them a little friendly information . . .

She gave up meat, sugary food and drinks, processed food and dairy products like cheese, milk and cream.

At first it didn’t go too well. . .

But Mum doesn’t give up easily and she asked Brenda, who knew a lot about the macrobiotic diet, to come over and help her.
