We don't need to quit eating meat. Let's instead engage with our food system and ask questions about how our food was grown no matter what we eat.
Thank you for this post. We at livingwelllocally.substack.com fully agree. Healing the planet, our bodies and communities, is a matter of asking HOW food is grown as much as choosing what to eat.
Its wrong to put them against each other. The focus should not be about one or the other, the focus should be on bringing them together without causing pain and harm to other species. The focus should be on following the path of Ahimsa (non-violence) while minimizing himsa (violence) on any living and non-living substance.
I purchase a half cow from Carman ranch and shop at the farmer's market when in season. I am moving more towards carnivore, with "food shortages," leaving shelves and produce sections more bare.
