I've eaten meat since well since forever really but it was only recently that I was forced to look at the hypocrisy of what I do.
I love animals, big ones, little ones, even the wet ones that live in the sea… I volunteer every year with animals projects and donate regularly to animal charities. I even spent a year in Bolivia working with rescued animals. But until recently no one had ever really pushed me on why I still thought it was ok to eat them.
I started talking things like this over with a friend and she really made me question what I was doing. Not in a pushy way just more in a have you really thought it through way. Truth be told I tried to deflect what she was saying by making a joke out of it all, but the more I thought about it, the less funny it got.
It’s not going to be easy, especially with the job I have and the life I lead but I really want to try my best, not just with the foods I eat, but in how I shop, dress and live.
I’m taking part in Veganuary because I want to start 2015 as I mean to go on and I’m tired of being a hypocrite.
