It’s something that has been pricking at me for a long while now. And then we watched Food Inc and both of our consciences became gnawing, scratching beasts — intent on having their way at last. Last year our dairy intake was significantly reduced — it required a complete turn around in what we ate. (Don’t get me wrong — we still ate/drank dairy, but we never bought it for the kitchen. We went out for ice cream, ordered it at restaurants, ate with pleasure with friends/family, etc.) But, I’m finding that preparing for a meatless lifestyle is less of a kitchen-quaking change, and I’m glad because we can’t do it anymore. Dan can’t support the animal factory, I can’t distance “meat” from “living breathing animal” anymore. This change has been a long time coming for us, and now… it’s here.
Have you ever changed what you eat for moral or health reasons? What was your experience? What advice can you give?
