Do you remember the old Wendy’s commercial where three female senior citizens go to a fast food burger joint and one, upon lifting the top half of her bun to reveal a pittance of of a hamburger exclaims, “Where’s the beef?”
After being a vegetarian for 15 years when I slowly added animal protein back into my diet for health reasons. Many people do not do well as vegetarian and I am one of them. there is truth in the eat right for your blood type that I discovered the hard way. I still don’t really like beef yet I cannot deny I notice huge difference in my functioning when I eat beef as opposed to poultry or fish.
So, after not eating much beef for a while I bought some and prepared it today. With my new-found need to re-learn swallowing I admit getting it down aw a chore. And I did get it down and enjoyed a very productive day because of the nourishment I clearly gain eating beef.
I may not like the thought of eating an animal but then I stop and think, when I eat vegetables those also died for me. And if you don’t think plants have feelings, think again. At least I buy my meat form local humane farmers and the cattle graze in the field untainted by hormones or antibiotics.
Always bless your food before you eat and give thanks to Nature, the animal or plant that will feed you, to all those who took part in producing the food and to the store for you to buy it. And of course than the Universe for blessing you with food and the ability to eat and use it.
