This was not the post I had planned for today but, oh well. I feel like this is something I need to talk about. Like most people I love a good juicy burger, a perfectly grilled steak or seasoned chicken. Hell, I eat chicken almost everyday. The other day at work I was listening to Carli Bybel videos. (What can I say I love a good beauty guru.) Her Going Vegan?!! video came on. Usually, I would have rolled my eyes && clicked out. However, I actually listened to the entire thing && even clicked the additional links below ‘The Best Speech Ever‘ && ‘Cowspiracy‘. ‘The Best Speech Ever’ was the first one I watched && it really got me thinking. There are two rather graphic/nasty parts in it but, they are both inserted videos so you can skip them. ‘Cowspiracy’ I watched on Netflix a few days later. They are both very eye opening.
Like, Gary Yourofsky says in the ‘Best Speech Ever’ we have on blinders. And honestly, I did. I knew the way animals were treated was horrible but, it’s completely different when you actually see it. And I’m sure people are going to say but you can get free range grass fed chickens/cows/ect. And you can!! But after seeing that I can’t even think about meat with out my stomach churning.
Well, I guess this is me formally announcing I will no longer be eating meat && transitioning into a more plant based diet. I’ve gone 3 days meat free! Which doesn’t sound like a lot but, I usually eat a sandwich for lunch or chicken for dinner so it has been interesting. I’ve found a lot of good recipes (oh maybe i’ll start doing Meatless Monday posts)I hope you have a wonderful Thursday. Let me know in the comments below if you have seen any of these videos or don’t eat meat either!
