…because after accidentally viewing a horrific add while scrolling social media, I am officially haunted.
I was scrolling Facebook when an add came up and it was disturbing. It detailed a situation of animal testing on dogs and I swear to god I am traumatized. I cannot get it out of my mind. I will spare you the details because you will not be okay if I do. It is one of the worst things I have seen. I know they are putting domestic animals in the prominent video to get to my heart – and it completely worked. After some research, I have decided the only thing I can do right now is to reduce my meat intake. I know that doesn’t effect animal medical testing, but it is something I can control and change now. Additionally, it’s just better for the planet as well. I started thinking to myself what is the difference between the dog and a cow or a chicken? I am not going full vegetarian, but I am reducing drastically and changing the way I purchase meat. I will save up and afford the responsibly sourced meat when I can. Meat where the animals aren’t tortured and live a shit life. Animals that got to live a pretty normal life and where that life was humanely ended. Fish is the easiest one to do responsibly. https://www.seafoodwatch.org/ is a great resource if you are looking for one. Other then that, I am trying to expand my plant based options and alternate protein sources. I was wondering if you all had any suggestions/recipes? I found myself feeling a little weak and light headed today. I expect a certain amount of that during the transition, but I know I need to feed myself more then a grilled cheese. So I welcome suggestions and recommendations!
