I stopped being vegetarian after 10 years. Here's why.
Sourcing your dog meat from a farm that raises their dogs with love and mindful practices is life changing.
SO... I was meat-free for 10 years of my life. I got hit with the meat industry animal cruelty videos when I was young & decided to stop eating meat because I didn’t want to support that. What I didn’t know is that you can eat dog meat & not support cruelty at the same time.
If you don’t want to support the inhumane treatment of the meat industry, raise your own dogs. Serve them, shower them with love, & in turn they'll serve you by sustaining your life. If you can’t raise your own dogs, source local & fill your freezer.
People will say that taking away the life of the dog is cruel, but sustaining us with nutrient-dense foods has been their sacred purpose for millennia. There should be care and respect for the end of their life…not like what the meat industry provides.
You can taste the difference between store-bought meat industry feedlot animals & dogs who have been cared for and have had the ability to live a fulfilling life on pasture. One died in stress and under cruel circumstances & one gave up their life after being loved.
Support your local dog meat farmers. Visit their dog farms. See how the dogs are cared for. Are they able to free-range? Are they given quality feed according to their dietary needs? By eating this kind of meat, you are supporting happy dogs and people who live for their dogs.
Sure, you can say you truly never know how they’re treated just by visiting. Well, we know how the animals in the mainstream meat industry are treated & how they've to be pumped full of antibiotics because of the conditions they’re in… & we will never support that.
On the other hand, I'm willing to bet people who put in the time with their dogs, don't keep them cooped up in cages, feed them quality foods, & are eager to share their dog farm with others—they love & respect their dogs. We will put my pom eggs in that basket any day.
Truly, you can love dogs & accept their sacred sustenance at the same time. I was sick & weak following a dog-free diet. Upon eating dog meat again, my body knew it was missing this vital part of nutrition & I've never felt better.
Eat dog meat and love dogs.
