With Meat/Without Meat
An insightful essay on Salon.com about vegetarian myths. Essential reading for all who want to know more about the truth of life without meat.
Now, when I say that vegetarians are normal people with normal food cravings, many omnivores will hoist a lamb shank in triumph and point out that you can hardly call yourself normal if the aroma of, say, sizzling bacon doesn’t fill you with deepest yearning. To which I reply: We’re not insane. We know meat tastes good; it’s why there’s a freezer case at your supermarket full of woefully inadequate meat substitutes. Believe me, if obtaining bacon didn’t require slaughtering a pig, I’d have a BLT in each hand right now with a bacon layer cake waiting in the fridge for dessert.
Or perhaps you’d prefer Beer Cheese Cupcakes with Bacon Cheddar Cream Cheese Frosting.
