as embarrassing and ignorant as it is, i have always been able to disconnect the steak on my plate or the burger i am eating from where it came from and the fact that it was actually once a living thing. i feel like i have been bombarded lately with literature and movies and short clips like the one below that have given me no choice but to make the connection and see first hand the cruelty that is connected to a lot of my food. it's amazing how knowledge rids you of excuses.
we are now officially flexitarians. we are commited to doing all we can do to stop factory farming. no doubt it will be difficult, but it is important to us not only because of the cruelty to animals but because of all the health risks it poses to our family (growth hormones, antibiotics, e coli, salmonella, etc.)
please watch the video below...
maybe we can be flexitarians together!?!... :)
