First of all, let me just put this out there - I am NOT, in anyway, trying to convince you to also be a vegetarian. I have a blog, and so with this blog I choose to blog about my life. Maybe offer some advice here and then.. but right now, I am just merely explaining WHY I went vegetarian, not why you should! :)
And since then, I have been a meat eater, and LOVED it. Well, certain meats. I don't like pork chops or steak or turkey or chicken wings that much. Or fish, fuck fish. And... when I cooked meat myself, it had to either be prepared and only requiring oven, or in pre-cooked form. So basically I was eating like stuffed chicken breasts, chicken fingers, precooked bacon and chicken strips.. Nothing that looked raw. Ever. Because it made me sick and no matter how cooked I would make it, all I could imagine is chomping down onto that raw and gooey flesh. Barf. But if someone else cooked it, total fair game.
But anyway. I had no real problem with that. Unttttil my monday night night class - the implications of Darwinism. The topic that night was "Humans vs Non-humans".. so of course, the subject made its way toward eating other animals. There were videos of animal torture shown.. and then the discussion started, about whether or not we should be eating meat. I, of course, had something to say:
"Of COURSE we should eat meat. Every other animal eats meat, so for us to stop just because we feel bad about it makes no evolutionary sense. Frogs eat flies, sharks eat fish. Most species do it, so why would we stop?"
And also, earlier I made a comment about my 6 dogs and how hilarious they are and how they all have personalities and scheme against each other and work as a team (as a point that there is a lot more to dogs than we think) and people kept making comments like "and we have no problem eating a cow, but what if we ate one of kelsey's dogs" .... plz dont, frankie wouldn't be a cute burrito like that doggy up there. :(
And so I was just like, well shit. I am the worst. But whatever, I love me some precooked chicken strips so w/e. Then I texted Brooke and told her all about it and she was all "ew thats true." but w/e. And it was. w/e.
So here we are, and I am actually loving it. After the initial hate I felt initially, which made no sense because I didn't even eat that much meat... But yeah, feeling good. I am eating WAY healthier too. I did not eat nearly enough veggies before anyway, so this is a great way to kind of force that to happen. But my meals are so balanced (because they have to be) and I can tell this is going to be a great journey for me!
Anyway! If you were curious WHY, that is why.
