Food With Dignity

One thing that makes me go absolutely insane is animal abuse. For quite a while, I remained intentionally ignorant because... well.. I had to eat and I didn't want to know.

If I'm in the mood for a fast food burrito, I'll get it from Chipotle. I'm not a big pork eater, but more chicken and occasionally beef. But anyone who spends more money to ensure a better supply will get my business.. even if it costs more.

John and I have been going mostly vegetarian lately anyway. We did have shashimi last night, and occasionally a small piece of chicken breast.. but mostly it's just vegetarian. We're losing weight on it, but it's like anything that you stop abruptly.. it has a weird effect.

I totally get why some people are vegetarians. I just don't know if it's for me over the long term. What would be nice is if they could finally figure out a way to create the meat without raising the animals. I'm sure somebody is working on that, and there's probably been some progress. Maybe it'll be available soon.

I did the veggie thing for about two or three months. Lost 30 pounds and my sense of smell got very keen. I could smell a chigger fart from fifty feet. I try to eat veggie when I can but I just need meat on occasion...whatever form I can get it in.
