The choice to not eat meat is a gentle choice -- gentle on our bodies, our minds and the planet. That's why I am truly envious of people who can be vegan.
unpopular opinion
Peering into the grocery carts of the women that surround me I wonder, how lazy or busy does one have to be to not be able to cook your own oatmeal without the help of a microwave?
clean food
I decided I would use OkCupid and Craigslist (yes, even scary ol’ Craigslist) so I could have dinner three times a week without opening my wallet.

My diet is not a decision I made lightly. Consequently it’s hurtful to regularly have my food choices called into question (or worse, dismissed outright as being silly) by people who supposedly care about me.
Out of all the secrets I've told here, intimate details of my drug and alcohol problems, bedwetting, compulsive promiscuity, and various close-ups of my fats, I feel most ashamed of what I'm about to tell you.

For a long time, I loved animals too much to feel OK about eating them. Then a nutritionist suggested I try eating some poultry for mental health reasons. I did -- and now I feel guilty for loving it.
I thought I would have all of these awful feelings after taking the first bite, but I had only happy, warm feelings that come with eating a bit of food you have really missed.
