Also, eating meat is anything but an "in bred" trait in man. One can understand that the early man hunted and lived off of what he could. But today... it is a mere excuse. Ask the vegetarians, if you know any. I do understand that giving up a habit so ingrained in us and handed down from generation to generation is hard to give up, but there is nothing that can convince a thinking person with some common sense that eating meat for whatever reason is the right thing to do
I meant to mention too that I love nothing more then a steak sub, piled with onions and dill pickle topping with mayo.
Not the "Phlly Sub" but close to it, and only when my husband makes them with extremely thin sliced meat.
I did try the pretend burger (whatever they call it, a Veggie cheeseburger at the local hamburger chain), and it was not bad, but not the same either. I could eat it. It had a reasonable charred grill mark flavor to it, so was easy to do so.
Meanwhile, my next door neighbors (both sides) we purchased our lots & built the same time 20 years ago, give or take a few months..One side to our home is two nurses
(male & female), she is now a Hospice Nurse, he in the General hospitals. They have been nurses for at least 40 years I'd guesstimate.
They always consulted nothing but the best when it came to health issues for themselves and nothing changed in that regard as time went on and they had children.
I recall 20 years ago them telling me, how they couldn't have children and how sad they were because their neighbor friends on the other side of them had just had another baby.
That was 20 years ago exactly,
because we moved here in 2000.
17 Years ago,
she became pregnant and even being a nurse had a terrible time of morning sickness and other problems then. They were now in their early 40s. They had twin boys both autistic.
Then, everyone was and always had been Vegetarians for life. Both husband & wife, and firmly committed to this lifestyle.
We use to give them Christmas deviled eggs they liked as my husband made them each year.
All of a sudden? Perhaps 5 years ago when the boys were about 10 or 11, I was talking to them about the eggs, and mentioned fish. They said "Oh, we changed now to meat eaters".....for the sake of the boys.
I have no idea if their doctors recommended they do so, or why, as I don't pry if someone doesn't say.
But I thought it curious but nice that they'd do this for their children since it was obviously recommended by the so-called experts they always consulted where their sons are concerned.
I certainly would put these neighbors into the educated and thinking category, for sure, and never judge them otherwise
But thats just me.
