Recently, a friend posted something online about the grossness of processed meat and how it made her “want to go vegetarian.”
It got me thinking about how many of us think that there are only two options:
Eat meat and support horrible, unethical factory-farming processes and grain-feeding (not the animal’s natural diet), OR
Abstain from meat altogether and be vegetarian.
What makes this more of a compelling argument is the common misconceptions that fat is bad for us, that cholesterol is bad for us, and red meat is bad for us. Doesn’t it seem like going vegetarian is a better answer?
