|yummmm, doesn't that look good?|
I'm rebellious. I go against the flow. So when I heard on the news that Meatless Mondays are being promoted for health and environmental reasons - that had me pulling out the biggest beef pot roast I had in my freezer.
I did a little checking. Apparently when we eat meat - we are causing destruction to our planet.
1. It causes climate change
2. Water shortages
3. Water pollution
4. Land erosion
Hello? Are they serious? It's bad enough when I go to McDonald's I can't find the salt and pepper shakers. Or "they" kinda force you to read the ingredients and calorie content. Should I admit that I do not read it at all? It's not like we eat that all the time. Down with the Food Police!
I am also not sorry, if I choose not to believe this baloney! I am very sorry, on the other hand if you do. It's not like I am this big meat eater either - but when the populace start telling me what I am to eat, how I am to eat it, etc - it reminds me of being a kid, in my parent's house. You remember - you can't eat candy, no soda pop, and eat all your veggies. Man, I couldn't wait to be a grown-up so that I could eat anything I wanted. And as much as I wanted. If I want to have Special K with strawberries for dinner, So be it!
I am not for regulating what people eat.
