Breaking Patterns

Eating habits are patterns engrained in our minds.  Sometimes our eating habits are not good for the planet or for our bodies. Take eating cows, pigs and chickens, for instance.  Daily consumption of these beings takes a lot of fossil fuel.  Oil and gas consumption goes into their production via the methods used to produce these animals.  They are also, when affordable for the common person, raised inhumanely, in tiny cages.  Beef fats are known to plug up your arteries, so some of these creatures do fight back, in a way.

We live in a time in history when many grains are available, as well as beans and spices.  A meat free diet is also more affordable.  I still consume dairy products and fish and eggs, but this past year I gave up eating mammals and birds.  Once in a while, to be social, I will have an animal to eat.  My body does not appreciate it though, as it is no longer acclimated to meat.

I "try so hard to be different"?  No, I try so hard to put thought into my daily existence.  I am not the only one who does.  Some people put even more thought into their diets than I do.  I just like to contemplate patterns and see where I can change things for the better.  Be it for my lawn or my body or what ever.  Thanks for reading.
