I recently blogged about the fact that I don’t eat dead animals that are dead because they were slaughtered for ‘human’ consumption. And I let pictures do the talking for me. Consider this blog to be Part 2.
Below, is a delicious salad of lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, mushrooms, cucumbers and green peppers and what a joy to look at it is, not to mention how good it tastes. And the best part is, no animal was
harmed killed in the making of this salad.
Another trip to the grocery store to showcase my point and so we come to this!
Dead marine life galore. Come take a look and make your selection.
And look at the yellow sign in the corner. It reads, “fresh!”. How fresh can a supermarket piece of salmon be? Who in hell knows how long it took to get to the supermarket from when it was hauled out of the ocean, cut up, sectioned, and put on display for you to make your selection? Two hours? Three hours? A day? Two days? A week? Two? You tell me! Fresh, my ass!
Yessiree! Whole Dungeness crabs COOKED! Meaning boiled to death to feed you! Why don’t they post the truth?
“These crabs were boiled alive until they died and now we present to you, a crab feast. Enjoy!” Oh no, you’ll never find a sign stating the truth. Just, “cooked crabs.” It sounds better like, “cooked steak.” Doesn’t it?
Let me just state that I enjoyed champagne for years too numerous to count and so I know the difficulties of letting go, I do. But I even braved the champagne aisle to take a picture to show you that this aisle would have numerous bottles gone if I was still drinking champagne. I used to have flutes galore and even brandy snifters out the wazoo when I would drink with acquaintances who came over and wanted something a bit stronger than champagne. Courvoisier cognac was my other drink of choice, but I’ve given that up as well. The thrift store was happy to see me coming, handing over boxes of flutes and brandy snifters.
So folks, I am not trying to moralize here or sermonize, I am just attempting to get you to take better care of yourselves as we all should. And one thing we can do to help the situation as it pertains to our health is to be more proactive in what we eat and drink. It really does matter and if you do decide to try it, baby steps to start out with would be just fine. There used to be an advertisement on the buses about getting moving as in exercising and it read, “Just do it!” Try it, you just might like the results because believe me, eating dead meat for decades is going to have you looking like dead meat. On the other hand, eating this will not have the same effect. I promise you.
Finally, a reminder. You ARE what you eat!
