So this post is a little late, but better late than never, right? We had a busy weekend filled with lots of family fun. After a long, tiring and stressful week, it was just what this mama needed.
But I digress, so I have a lot on my mind currently and thinking I might need to make a change. You may remember from some previous posts, that I was recently diagnosed with allergies to dairy & eggs. And I have successfully given them up. But I'm now considering giving up the meat too. Maybe vegan...I don't know, but I'm feeling the urge to stop eating animals.
I watched the movie Vegucated last night and was in tears by the end of it. If you haven't seen it, I suggest you do. Yes, we buy our meat from a local, grass-fed, organic farm where the animals are happy and free. But in the end, we're still raising them to kill and eat them. And I have a hard time with that. Looking at our dogs & cat I can't even imagine the thought of ending their life. So why is a cow, pig or chicken any different? These are the things churning in my brain and heart right now.
Will I go Vegan? Will my family support me? Will my kids become vegans? What will I eat? Where will I eat? Am I crazy? Can I give up bacon? I just don't know. I do know that I need to research this more and learn as much as I can and make a conscious decision.
So for now, it's Meatless Monday. No meat for me today. And that's where I will start. I will keep you posted on where my thoughts and heart take me.
