Do you think about how much meat you eat? Or the quality of it?
My girlfriend texted me the other night as she watched Food Inc, “I’m never eating meat again.”
She said that Food Inc had grossed her out and she was upset about where our meat was coming from., hoping that American practices were different from Australian.
I joked and said that as I eat organic meat I imagine my meat sources roaming free and frolicking in fields before they are slaughtered.
A horrible thought when you think about it consciously but I’ve grown up having my meals revolve around meat. It’s hard to get my head around the fact that you can survive on a diet without it.
Anyone else feel like that?
So I haven’t actually seen Food Inc but I am currently watching Forks Over Knives while my kids make cubbies in the new playroom (how good is that they are finally playing together!!).
I guess the question I am asking myself is….for the sake of my children do I need to reorganise the way I think about meals?
Should I start “crowding out” the meat with more and more yummy vegetables?
What do you think about this?
What are your “go to” vegetarian meals?
Help! I’d love your thoughts.
