Based on some feedback on Facebook I feel the need to talk a little about being a vegetarian, again. Really, this is the second day of my blog and stupid food is all I can talk about. But before I get into it I’d like to list some foods that I don’t eat
meat (I do eat some fish, occasionally)
gelatin (ground animal bones)
lard (animal fat)
eggplant (I just don’t like them)
arugula (had some once that was a little too dirty tasting)
artichoke hearts (Luke loves them, I do not)
I’m sure there are others. But who really cares. What does it matter that I don’t eat meat. Get over it. There are some plant foods that I don’t eat either and that doesn’t seem to bother any one. Just because I choose a plant based diet doesn’t mean I’m not thanking God for it. Are you kidding me? I don’t have to eat meat to think God gave us animals to enjoy. I just enjoy them in a different way than you do, not on my plate.
So whatever, unfriend me, unfamily me if you need to. I’m free to make those kind of choices, and I really am not thinking God is going to smite me for it. No danger. This is not a religious issue for me in the least, nor do I think it has to be.
