Welcome to ZestAppeal with me, Callie Roberts.
I’m all for seizing the moment but it’s important to ensure we do this whilst treading on as few toes as possible. This blog gives you a few pointers how. Like..
In this blog, I ask what’s wrong with the way we eat now- too much meat, too few plants, too much fast food, too little home cooking, and it’s putting the entire planet at risk.
We all know the arguments that being veggie is better for the environment & for the animals- but in a carnivorous culture, it can be hard to make the change.
So I ask you this: Knowing what you know- why are you not a vegetarian?
In case you’ve forgotten- firstly, there’s the cruelty- the 10billion animals raised each year for meat in factory farm conditions that we hypocritically wouldn’t even consider for our own cats, dogs and other pets.
Environmentally- meat amazingly causes more emissions than all of transportation combined.
Beef production uses 100 times the water vegetables do.
So from any one of these angles why do people stall making the switch? Perhaps because It’s human nature to commit to doing it later, but then later never comes..
You are not alone. For what used to be a treat in the 1950’s is now a staple. We as a society are eating twice as much meat.
I’d like this to change & offer a simple solution…why follow the binary way- instead, start like this.. Be a weekday veg & as a reward, have the option of choosing sustainably harvested fish at the weekends.
Follow these simple footsteps & you’ll find your footprints becoming smaller!
Just think, If all of us ate half as much meat it would be like half of us are vegetarians!
You are what you eat & once you’ve made the switch to a healthy lifestyle, I have more suggestions to share with you on how to achieve Zest! Figuring out the habits that lead to a long (and fruitful!) life, introducing a world of joy in aging & beauty in aging.
