Years ago, I used to enjoy feeling peckish, as it was a signal for me to visit Greggs and purchase a sausage roll x2. Feed myself and gorge on these cheap eats and real meats.
I look back and accept I did that.
I was lured by their definition of a bargain. But what have I gained, bar the extra weight and years of rolls gained? Cheap equated to cheerful.
Cheerful because I had change left over, which meant I could purchase two or another one tomorrow.
Back then, I had never taken a moment to consider that the meats I was eating, was once a heart that pulsed in life and was beating. It was for sale, categorised as food, so I bought it and never once believed I was rude. Wrong even, or plain dumb?
Society taught me to buy sausage rolls and live my life, while young.
Young was the gilt before she bore piglets. Young was her heart before we minced her and labelled her kind pork. Stabbing into corpses with knife, fork or our mouths.
To state that you need meat in your life is a travesty.
To voice that you’re not sure how people can live on a Vegetarian/Vegan/Plant-based diet is your unacknowledged ignorance.
To write that people who don’t eat meat are stupid is a true reflection of who you are.
require (something) because it is essential or very important rather than just desirable.
“I need help now.”
There is no reason anyone alive on this earth today, requires the consumption of animal flesh to live.
Today I visit Greggs, and I purchase a Vegan Sausage Roll or a Vegan Steakbake. Both of which are 100% plant-based and better for our environment, the animal kingdom and my personal health.
