Lately, I've been feeling a little weird about eating meat, as a result I've been buying tonnes of vegetables and secretly experimenting with vegetarian recipes (ssshhhhh :)). Make no mistake I love meat... or at least I think I do.
(Because I work with food, I figured I may as well take a deeper look into the health as well as spiritual benefits of vegetariansism/veganism, and come up with some delicious ways to cook them so that they are appealing to myself and the people I'm cooking for )
Would you rather have this...
Before the idea of being a vegetarian or vegan was B-O-R-I-N-G to me, but in my journey to treat myself/my body better and become a better person; I've been reading a lot of books, articles etc and realized one common factor behind why people choose to be vegetariain or vegan.
The killing innocent and helpless animals to satisfy our culinary desires.
this? WHY?The one thing that really got me, and I read this in an article on vegetarianism and spirituality; is that, an animal experiences fear, anxiety and pain before and during the slaughter, and that fear, anxiety and pain are transfered to you when you consume this meat. What do you think?
Ever since reading that, I've been incorporating more greens and grains into my diet, and gradually eating less meat. Will I stop completely? Who knows, but all I know is that I can't stop thinking about what if the tables were turned? We wouldn't appreciate that shit... but that's just me :) What do you think?
"...killing innocent and helpless animals for the purpose of filling ones stomach is a bad karma with harmful consequences..."
All my vegetarians, tell me about why you choose not to eat animals (meat)?
