I’m not a huge fan of meat; not for any particular reason. Large chunks of meat make me noxious and I don’t really care for the taste, so it’s not typically a part of my diet.
That being said, I’m lucky enough to have a husband who is willing to go along with my food preferences, so for the past 3 years, we’ve eaten vegetarian at home just because. If we’re eating out, meat finds its way into our dish (we usually share) about 1/2 the time.
More recently however, Vince has been engaging me in conversations about the ethical side of eating meat. Specifically, should we be eating animals who are self-aware? Would you eat a dolphin or an elephant? If you revolt at that thought, should you really be eating a cow? What’s the difference?
The conversation is just beginning for us but I have a feeling there will be more to come.
