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!
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.
