24/365: Meatless Mon....eh Everyday.
When people ask me why I’m a vegetarian, I can give several reasons. But truth be told, that’s not why it started. As a little six year old I just couldn’t believe we actually ate the cows in the meadow behind our home. It just broke my heart. Reason enough, right?
The past 22 years I never doubted my choice to live as a vegetarian. Nowadays there are a lot of reasons that back up my feelings as a six year old, whether they’re environmental, health or animal welfare related. Knowing the facts, it just feels right to me.
Now. That being said.
I feel no need to convert anyone to vegetarianism. Do your own research, think it over, check your heart and make your own choices. There’s no right way for everyone on anything, including how you eat. It’s gotta be right for YOU. I even want my kids to decide for themselves. We let them have some meat & fish every once in a while (the most sustainable ones we can get) and when they’re old enough, they will be able to decide for themselves. We’re raising responsible & independent adults, not kids.
So whatever you choose: enjoy your food! Anyone who knows me knows I sure do. 😊 And if you feel like making a difference when it comes to your meatconsumption, try one day without it, go flexitarian, Meatless Monday or Meatless Monthly. The thing is: everytime you choose NOT to have meat, you save (a part of) an animallife, a HUGE amount of water & food necessary to produce it, contribute to a more equal global distribution of food and you might even increase your intake of healthy alternatives.
Could be worse, right?! 😉
