Animals Love Too…
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Why Choose to Eat Vegan
Choosing to eat vegan is a topic that brings up quite a bit on controversy. We all know that animals are killed for meat but we have been emotionally removed from the process of that. So when you buy that nicely packaged container from the supermarket with plump red meat. You are removed from what occurred before it got to you. You don’t think that this piece of flesh was once part of a living, breathing creature that, in most cases was bred just to feed you. The purpose of its life was only for your pleasure. How sad is that? And that is only one part. Think about its life for a moment…It was a sad and lonely life mostly lived in fear then it’s destiny was to be slaughtered in a horrible, cruel way to bring you the pierce of flesh in your hand.
So what are you eating here? Something that was pumped full of antibiotics and chemicals, that is filled with adrenalin due to the fear it experienced at the time of its death and you are putting it into your body? Can you really believe that this can be good for you? And if you had the choice to eat that or a beautifully prepared meal, packed with enzymes, nutrients and life force would you still choose the flesh? Probably not. So what is missing in the choice?….education. You probably do know what to do with the piece for flesh but not the healthy option…now we can change that.
There is horrible cruelty involved in the dairy industry too. As soon as a calf is born, it is taken from its mother, so we can drink her milk. (I gave up eating dairy the night I heard the cows in a nearby field, howl all night after this had happened to them.) The calf either faces the same torturous life as its mother or if it’s a boy it will be slaughtered.
We must educate ourselves on where our food comes from. I strongly recommend these documentaries:
Earthlings, Cowspiracy, Foodmatters, Forks Over Knives
Know where your food comes from…YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT…Don’t eat your friends!
