30 Days of Pork – a true story

Amanda Kelso is the daughter of a friend of mine at work. He told me about Amanda’s “project” some time ago and thought it remarkable. I happened to stumble upon it again while researching alternative medicines made from pork.

Here is Amanda’s story in a nutshell – In 2006 she was a 34 yr old ad agency executive living in San Francisco. She also was a vegetarian for the past 12 years. Amanda decided to visit the dark side of culinary spectrum and make an event out of it. 30 days of pork was born and she was going to chronicle it on Flickr. She was going to have pork every day for a month. You can see her project here+
