Vegetarian Diet why it’s good to be vegetarian
So now that I am vegetarian, I have embarked in a quest of reproducing my favourite steak sandwich and hamburger using meat substitutes and other non-animal products.
People choose to become vegetarian for all different reasons. Some choose to adopt the vegetarian or even the vegan diet for the scientifically proven benefits they bring.
You see very few vegetarians in hospital beds dying of cancer of the stomach and other horrible diseases of this type.
Vegetarians as a rule also enjoy a healthier lifestyle and a more positive mental attitude. Some say that eating the flesh of tortured creatures carries through vibrations of horror and despair.
I can?t validate this, but it surely does make sense. Human beings are vibratory creatures. We pick up on each other?s vibrations or energies and also the animals that surround us.
Another reason for the increased health is the fact that vegetarians do not ingest the copious amounts of chemicals, hormones, antibiotics and other diabolical drugs that slaughterhouses have to use in order to stop the dead flesh from putrefying.
The moment an animal is murdered for its meat, that animal starts to putrefy. This is the natural process that takes place when a body dies human or otherwise. In order to market the meat and to sell it the manufacturers must inject chemicals and preservative into the meat. These chemicals slow down the putrefying process. The refrigeration slows it even further.
Of course meat eaters ingest these chemicals and agents along side the hormones and the antibiotics and fattening agents that are forced onto the animals to speed up their fattening process so that they produce more weight and more profit.
Why I am vegetarian
Whilst I am aware of the health benefits of being vegetarian, I did not choose to be vegetarian for those reasons. In fact I must confess that I still love the taste of meat and sometimes still long for a barbecue steak
During my flesh eating days I used to marinate my steak overnight and I still remember the wonderful aroma of the meat cooking over the coals.
So I am not one of those vegetarians that squirm at the thought of eating meat, or faint at the smell of cooking flesh?not at all. I love the taste of meat and if I was able to obtain meat without killing animals I would happily go back to meat eating?health hazards or not.
However, since it is not possible to get a sirloin steak without murdering a poor innocent creature, I choose not to eat meat.
Don?t get me wrong I do not ?miss? eating meat. Indeed since I became a vegetarian, my meals have become more interesting and certainly more creative. My Italian heritage has also blessed me with tons of wonderful recipes that are meat and fish free.
I believe that we do not have the moral rights to murder and torture innocent creature when there is so much else that we can eat. And certainly there is no other benefit to eating meat other than satisfying the taste for blood. This I can understand.
I am also aware that the vast majority of people would instantly become vegetarians if they had to kill a calf or a fully grown cow with their own hands. Most people are truly disturbed and horrified by the shocking acts of cruelty and inhumane behaviour that face these poor creatures every day. Of course ?consumers? never get to see what goes on in the torture chambers. They only way they see ?meat? is in neat little packets at the supermarket.
Why this vegetarian site
One of my most favourite meals was the ?steak sandwich? and the ?hamburger?. I still remember the delicious meals I enjoyed and the wonderful hamburgers I ate during my teenage years as a flesh eater.
