Day 242 In the Pursuit of Love (Animal Rights)

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU– I HAVE BEEN A VEGETARIAN FOR OVER 25 YEARS NOW– BUT WHEN WE MOVED TO BRANSON, MO. & ON THE LAKE WE STARTED EATING SOME FISH –RAINBOW TROUT– & SOME SEA FOOD— SO FOR ABOUT 6 YEARS NOW OR SO WE HAVE BEEN “Pescatarians” AS WE HAVE BEEN EATING SOME FISH NOT A LOT BUT SOME!! I GREW UP ON A FARM & HATED EATING THE ANIMALS– OR RAISING THE ANIMALS TO SELL!! I HAVE NEVER BEEN A REAL MEAT EATER!! GARY QUIT EATING MEAT JUST A FEW YEARS AGO– & NOW IF HE TRIES TO EAT ANY– IT MAKES HIM SICK!! I DO TAKE SUPPLEMENTS– VIT. B OF COARSE– & OTHER SUPPLEMENTS– BECAUSE WE GET OUR ONLY FOOD SOURCES MAINLY FROM VEGGIES & FRUIT & BEANS– ETC ETC! GIVING UP MEAT WAS NOT HARD FOR ME AT ALL– AS I NEVER WAS A REAL MEAT EATER!

Life in the City with a Future

I watched a part of a debate today about animal rights/vegetarianism. It is one of the most powerful speeches I have ever heard. Sarah on Anglo-Saxon Celt Creates reblogged the post on her site. Watch it here. 

202 days ago, on Post 40 In the Pursuit of Love — I decided to move toward a vegetarian diet. I made it 30 days consuming no animals. I did consume dairy and eggs. My body did not cooperate with my choice and I added meat back into my diet. After watching this debate, I realize that my conscience and my body are still not in balance.

I have made an effort to consume only meats that came from animals which were humanely raised. But, I wonder how I would feel — if someone was preparing to filet me and barbecue me with the belief it was okay because I was humanely raised.

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!

    Thanks for the reblog, Sonda. I grew up in a meat and potato household. Growing up my dad was a big time hunter/fisherman. If he shot it/caught it — we ate it. I don’t even want to imagine what all kind of varmints I ate. Before when I reduced my meat consumption and then gave it up I started with beef and and then pork then chicken then fish. This time I’m going to leave beef and fish till last and see if my body adjusts better. I’m hoping that as my body recovers from MCS that I might become unallergic to the many fruits and veg I can’t eat. Thanks for your support. 😀

    • GOOD FOR YOU— I KNOW ABOUT THE HUNTING & FISHING– GREW UP AS THAT WAS MY LIFE STYLE!!! I DIDN’T GET THE NICK NAME ANNIE OAKLEY FOR NOTHING!!! 😉 I DON’T HAVE TOO MUCH OF A PROBLEM WITH ANY VEGGIES– BUT I DO HAVE WITH FRUIT— AND WE TRY TO GROW AS MUCH AS WE CAN– OR SHOP CHEMICAL FREE– & GMO FREE– ETC –ETC– BUT WITH A WORLD THAT REVOLVES AROUND USING TOXIC CHEMICALS– IT IS DARNED HARD TO EAT TOTALLY HEALTHY!!!
