So this isn’t going to be a blog post about me ranting on how much I hate turkey….thats for another time. I will how ever talk about food (or at least food market) .
So for the longest time I was feed on straight up just turkey and chicken, because my mom was trying to keep the family healthy by not using fatty beef and pork. now I was never the biggest fan of either but it thanks to this long extint of my life, I hate turkey with a blazing passion. there were many times were i just picked the straight up vegetarian option instead of eating what ever turkey product (or really cold meat product) was presented to me. My grandma would always get kind mad at me that I wasn’t eating the meat that was given to me. when I was younger I thought she thought I spoiled and just a brat (even though most parents struggle to get their kids to eat their vegetabels which I had no problem with). now that I”m older I can of understand her thought process behind it.
it’s not to often people kind of think about the thought that, meat is a luxury it always has been and it always will be. killing raising and processing animals for the sake of food takes time and money. there were large points in history were people couldn’t afford meat and weren’t educated to know about the wide variety of vegetables that could suppliment there lack of. it takes a toll on a lot of things and we’re just now starting to realize it’s not the cleanest or the most stress free industry. I don’t really have much of an alternative to the heavy stock we put on meat other than the numerous diet and medical studies that promote eating a more vegetable and grain material. having meat with every meal is an arcane status symbol of wealthy something I’m hoping within the next few years we will grow out of.
