Traditionally we’ve been taught meat, vegetable and starch makes a complete meal. Well, at least that was how I grew up – so did my husband. It is hard to get out of that thinking. And even harder to get our kids out of it.
With all the food related films and literature I’ve exposed myself to recently, I’ve been more and more avoiding buying any type of meat. Then all of the sudden I find myself caving because we are a meat and potatoes culture and my family is still adjusting. Nevertheless I have great guilt as a result – because I so often see the economical animal products as poison.
