The first thing you should probably know about me is that I really love animals. Of course, each animal has a different personality. Especially when I think back to living on the farm, where the Chickens and the Rooster weren’t very friendly. They would bully the little piglets and it would make me very upset. With that exception, all the pets I’ve ever had were the most loving and sweetest animals. There are many reasons for what every person eats. Most people eat certain foods because they enjoy the taste or it’s part of their culture. Or someone may be vegan, vegetarian or pescatarian. Someone may like to add meat to every meal. I think what we eat is definitely a personal decision.
Over the years I’ve gradually eaten a lot less meat because of the way it was making me feel physically and emotionally. For example, I rarely eat any pork because of the memories it gives me of all the years I spent time with my pigs. I love them so so much and if you own a dog, you can probably relate to the fact that you would never eat a dog. Eating too much meat also causes my body to feel bloated and sick. Other moments, it’s the sadness in knowing that animals are treated incredibly unkindly and often very cruelly and inhumanely. I like to skip the meat aisle at supermarkets and generally wouldn’t go out of my way to buy meat.
Similar to sugar, we are over consuming meat which is affecting our health and the environment – not to mention the animals. One thing most people don’t realise, is that animals are very intelligent and can sense when they are in a dangerous environment. They know they are going to be slaughtered or killed.
