93 again. hehe You see that moonbreeze? Take note of that number and the people who post it and WHAT they post. I do not think I have seen, at least here on edot, anyone post 93 and something negative. Think about it and do what though wilt with the information.

I just had ribeye steak. So yeah, I eat meat. I don't find anything wrong with it. In fact, except for those who aren't allowed to eat meat because of their religion, I don't get why people don't eat meat. Our body needs it. On the issue of "killing" these animals, I think our creator made them exactly as a source of basic needs (i.e. food) for us.

If god hadn't intended us to eat them why did he make them so damned tasty?

Ok, in all seriousness, I eat meat. Couldn't do without it. I do prefer grass fed beef, and as much organic and free range as possible. Most meat just tastes much better when the animal it came from was eating what it was intended to eat, and not a ton of corn.

I have tried to go modified vegetarian since I was but a wee lad. haha 19 or so years later being 31 now I still want to and tried 2 years or so ago(lost mad weight and was getting sick from not eating the right shit, should have been eating mung beans, quinoa, etc.). So I will most likely try again very soon.

I read some interesting things about eating meat in this paper earlier today, not finished yet though. haha

I use to consume meat quite often. The junk food palaces were convenient and economical for me. After seeing a buddhist women eating her mostly vegetable lunches, I inquired and she gave me the run down on meat not being so good for you. Many years later I go by what this guy said

Not sure if any of those links mention his diet. But I remember reading that he mainly ate above ground vegetables,fruits and nuts. Most of the meat he consumed was fish. And he only ate land wild land animals twice a year. I eat eggs and beef/chicken rarely now. Fish every once in a blue moon. Might take up fishing and catch me some for free minus the bait and fishing license etc ^_^
