Top Ten List ~ Go Vegetarian March 22, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Health & Wellness.

In previous posts, I’ve explained a few reasons why I became a vegetarian.

For those of you toying with the idea of switching teams, here is my Top Ten list of reasons for being a vegetarian:

10.  Animals should not be exploited for human consumption.

9.  Animals produced for human consumption should be raised humanely, and aren’t.

8.  Eating animals, especially those raised on growth hormones and antibiotics, is unhealthy.

7.  Animal waste from factory farms is harmful to the environment.

6.  The living conditions for animals on factory farms are deplorable.

5.  The method used to transport animals to slaughter is equally appalling.

4.  The manner in which we slaughter animals is cruel.

3.  Eating grain is a more efficient way to feed this small planet of ours.

2.  Vegetables, fruits, nuts and grains are healthier (and taste better!) than beef, pork, or chicken.

And the number one reason that I have been a vegetarian for so many years:

1.  As an adult, I can have my pudding, even if I don’t eat my meat.

Instead of Hillshire Farms’ rallying cry of Go Meat! . . . consider adopting a healthier slogan for you, the planet, and the animals you would otherwise be consuming (at least a few nights a week):

Gather round the Good Stuff ~ Go Meat-less! 

Aah . . . that’s better!
