time to cut domesticated mammals from my diet

considering the ecological, macroeconomic, and health impacts of red meat consumption, it is probably time that i cut it from my diet.

for practical reasons for now, chicken and fish will still be fair game, but no pork or beef. if the opportunity to consume wild game or whale arises, i'll have to consider it on a case by case basis.

i'll skip the links about water consumption, GHG emissions, clogged arteries, global carrying capacity according to different diets, etc since it is all stuff anybody can find pretty easily and i don't feel like looking for it right now.

i need to keep closer tabs on your blog: you're giving up meat? i'm happy (for you, the earth, the cows) but sad (for me, not being able to smell bacon cooking).

love from leila

Wild Boar Bacon can be considered on a case by case basis. Eat the first and third case of bacon, but not the second.
