I get the 'oh you eat really healthy hey? So your a vegan'... nope. Sorry guys, I'm not. I have watched Cowspiracy, and was almost convinced, but what about the farms (Polyface farms) that are ethical.
The treatment of animals in the food industry is found to be inhumane and quite brutal. It is unacceptable and I understand the choices that people make when they choose to be vegan or vegetarian. The affect of meat production on a large scale is also know to be a major contribution to the greenhouse gases that are damaging the planet. But there are people like myself, who struggle with energy and nutrients with giving up meat. You can support these shitti mass meat factories or actually think about where you get your food from.
You don't have to be vegan to save the world.
I chose to eat mindfully with awareness of what is going on my plate and where it has been. I opt for organic animal produce as much as possible. Yes, this is the expensive option, but I chose to support and invest in those farmers that are committed to ethical practices. Whatever has been fed to those animals is exactly what goes into your system. This include hormone boosters, grains and with the poor treatment, it just is a negative impact on your body overall.
My meat is not a main part of the plate, its a compliment to the many seasonal veggies I eat. We are not all perfect but it's really about making ethical choices as much as possible. If you are interested in more of this, watch the documentary of Polyface Farms.
Well hello and welcome to my blog. I'm currently travelling the globe, surfing, eating, cooking and learning whilst juggling the study of a B.Sc in Nutritional Medicine.
