After yesterdays honest post… I feel like I’m on a roll!
Meat… I eat meat at some point every day, and I feel so bad. I know I’m eating an animal and Im grateful for it. I love bacon but almost cry when I see a pig afterward.
I obviously adore animals. I adore my meat meals. But I hate the way I feel afterwards.
When I did some work experience in 2009, part of my job was animal husbandry. We raised chickens,knowing they would end up on the table. I was then offered the chance to be shown how to humanely kill and prepare the chicken to eat. I raised it from an egg to the day everyone enjoyed it on their plates. Although I felt sad, it was all on me. It felt better knowing that I did it all.
Last year I went meat free for a month and my vitamin levels became quite low. I didn’t really crave meat though. I found alternatives.
Am I just stuck in a routine or is it ok to eat and enjoy meat without feeling horrendous?
My favourite meat is lamb,but could I choose a lamb from a field? no. Is this my brain telling me that my conscience is actually far stronger than me need for meat in my life.
Does meat then inlcude fish?
L is a health induced vegetarian. Her body just doesnt want meat. Would it be easier if we could both eat the same meals?
Is it just me who feels guilty?
