After one week of going vegetarian I came across several struggles:
–Different Flavors. Some veggie choices were bland and flavorless. Vegan meat just doesn’t taste/feel the same!
–Social Temptations. Seeing pictures of delicious meals on Instagram, and eating with friends who eat meat make it difficult to maintain a veggie diet.
–Lack of Education. Not knowing what ingredients mean and where my food comes from is also a problem.
–Few Options. There are as many meat options as there are veggie in the dining halls. However, at Bcafe, there are very few options aside from the not-so-filling soups and salads.
Peta‘s Reasons to Pledge Veg:
-Farmed animals are as intelligent, inquisitive, and capable of feeling fear and pain as our cats and dogs. Yet more than 16 billion animals are killed for food every year in the U.S. and have little legal protection from cruelty. They are neglected, mutilated, genetically manipulated, put on drug regimens that cause chronic pain and crippling, transported through all weather extremes, kept in filthy sheds, and killed in gruesome and violent ways.
Some of my meals throughout the week! (:
