I’ve been a vegetarian for more than 4 years now. I’ve never once since the day I gave it up been tempted to eat meat, ever. This is how I know its the right decision for me.
I made my decision to stop eating meat after reading a book, Skinny Bitch, which exploited the health hazards of eating an animal-based diet. This was my reason for dropping meat. It was completely out of self-interest.
However, I have never been so happy to say I’ve been living meat free as much as I was the day I saw this.
Those baby pigs thrown on the floor will haunt me forever.
I’m not asking anyone to be vegetarian, but I will say I think it’s important to see this. I think its important to be informed. I think its important that if you choose to eat meat that you know what you’re contributing to. Or you should know what to buy so you’re not contributing to this.
I have a hard time believing as much as you may love meat or cheese or milk, that you yourself would be able to do, watch, or contribute personally to this process.
I know most people don’t want to know this. They want to go about their ways, looking the other way. Well I’m sorry, but that’s not ok. It’s just not ok.
This isn’t healthy.
This isn’t happy.
And this is not hot.
