Can we, in fact, live healthy, vital lives without meat on our plates? It’s a question that I have tried to answer for people in my 25 (plus) years as a vegan.
49% of American eat meat daily. 80% of Americans eat meat four or more times a week on average. That’s a lot of meat; more than 200 pounds per person per year, to be exact. To give it up, even for a short time would be a challenge for most people. What would we eat?
More and more people want to know what’s in the food they are eating, so we might as well begin with those burgers and steaks sizzling on the grill on these balmy summer nights. What, exactly is in the meat you are eating? Is there more to your burger than meets the eye? Sadly, the answer is yes.
