Had great craving a couple of days ago.

Post#1 by tim » 29 Jul 2021, 13:00


A couple of days ago, I saw a cooking video on facebook that teaches how to cook Chicken Pho. It reminded me how my mom used to make it and I had an instant craving for it. So bad I had to tell a vegan friend about it (He suggested I go get some meatless chicken strips).
But at the same time I thought to and reminded myself: to the chicken, its life is more important than my short time craving for food, no matter how great the craving might seem.
Then I ran down stairs and ate 2 veggie hotdog and the craving went away (I think mostly the craving was so great because I was hungry and watching a video that showed cooking food).
I don't think I have great love for animals like other people do. If I had great love for animals I'd probably have a pet or two.
It's a lot easier to be a vegetarian when you imagine yourself being the animal you're about to consume for a short time and see from its point of view.

For two years now, I've been a vegetarian. I have empathy for animals that's why I became one.

That's a little longer than me.. I have been vegetarian for about 1.5 years. Since spring (March 21 2020).

I sometimes thought about giving up the carnivorous life and entering the vegetarian practice. But it's more complicated than just making a choice.

Around me, everyone, relatives, friends, company meals, etc. have their habits focused on meat consumption; that is not little thing - The survey indicates that the consumption of meat per capita is 42.12 kg per year (the sixth largest consumer of meat on the planet).

I would have to get involved in a whole personal administration to change my routine and enter this new world:

Food purchase planning;
- This would be the easiest task, you can even buy online and receive it at home.

Learn to cook and create menus built on this new diet;
- Here things start to get complicated, having time to cook my own meals, knowing how to compose a nutritionally balanced menu, having time to cook without disturbing who is cooking for everyone else and using all the resources of the kitchen (stove , electric oven, sink, etc.), does not seem easy in practice.

The convenience of just sitting down and eating ends up weighing on my decision to explore this vegan world. :roll:

I think this kind of life change should be a lot simpler so that you can have a single life and live alone, or at least everyone in the same household has the same habits of not eating meat.
