Meet your Meat: Dont eat more Chicken!

The following post may contain affiliate links.

Meet your MeatWhile on the road, driving through Atlanta, we saw a bunch of feathers all over the place. We knew a chicken truck had to be close by and low and behold we caught up to it. Now typically I would see a chicken truck and think nothing of it but after trying to convert my diet to vegetarian I have a different kind of heart for these things.

Meet your MeatYou see that little fellow poking his head through the crate? Poor little chicken. He looked so sad as if he knew he was on his way to be slaughtered. I have this photo on my desktop to remind myself not to eat meat. It is really hard to stick to the fruits and vegetables when you have been eating meat for almost 25 years.

Meet your MeatI just can’t get the image out of my mind of those chickens. Most of them looked very sickly, had feathers ripped out of them, some weird thing poked through their nose, poop everywhere…it was just gross. I know that if a chicken is sick I don’t want to be eating it. Seeing the chicken truck first hand has really fueled my fire to stay on my vegetarian diet.

    I love chicken. Animals like chickens were given to man for food. just the same way lions eat cute little animals… its just how things go. I could never be a vegan or veterinarian..
