More meat, less meat, what meat?

More meat, less meat, what meat?There is often a discussion about meat and whether to eat it or not. Is it good, maybe even essential, or would it in fact be better for our health to not eat meat.

I was a vegan for a few years and vegetarian for even more years. I believe there are ways to get all of your nutrients through a vegan diet, but it is really hard work. Especially as we generally eat less (healthy) calories (it’s true!) than we need.

I also believe our bodies are different. Some of us, and I am one of them, need more protein. A few days ago I found this video and with Denise Minger. She is saying a lot of, to me sensible things. Like taking care of the whole animal instead of only the so called finer parts. To follow your body’s instinct to what it needs. Like all people who are somewhat opinionated there has been quite som controversy around her. So listen and make up your own opinion. What do you think? Does she make sense?

    I was vegetarian for many years. I am happy to eat meat but small portions as part of a balanced diet. Our bodies have evolved to be omniverous. I see people eating far too much meat with little or no veg.
    Great post, thanks for sharing 🙂

      Absolutely! I agree, people tend to eat way too little veggies. I love meat, but also fish, shellfish and pure vegetarian. I think variety is the most important. Like the idear of eating the whole animal instead of only muscle meets 🙂

    There used to be a joke about a Christmas party that contained the line: “Even tomatoes scream when you slice them.”

    I figure that everything must die to feed something else, so I don’t mind being in the food chain–at least until someone figures out photosynthesis for people.

    Having said that, I can no longer eat wheat or milk products without side effects, and so I eat more veggies and raw stuff like nuts than I ever have before, but I still eat muscles and some organ meats. I’m not quite ready to suck the marrow from bones, but I will cook the bones down for broth.

      Sounds like you eat healthy. I think cooking broth is great and with such flavour benefits as well!
