And eating meat destroys others around you (the murder and rape of the animals), destroys the environment (watch "Cowspiracy" for proof of this), and destroys your own self, as eating meat is proven to raise stress levels, blood pressure, etc.
Thus, every time you eat meat you are digging a massive karmetic hole which becomes increasingly harder to dig yourself out of. This karmetic debt must be paid eventually; whether in this life or a next life. It is paid through unfortunate life events, such as the death of a loved one, traumatic events, and break ups or affairs in marriage, among other ways. Of course, you can offset your debt before you die by giving up meats, and doing more good than bad in this life. Only then will you be spared the wrath of your own misdeeds.
if God intended us to be vegan, why did He make animals out of meat?
According to Genesis 1:29–30, at the end of the sixth day of Creation Week, God gave Adam and Eve and the animals permission to eat plants.
Genesis 1:29: "And God said, 'Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you, it shall be for meat.'"
The Bhagavad Gita (17:8, 17:10) describes the types of foods preferred according to one's qualities: "Foods dear to those in the mode of goodness increase the duration of life, purify one's existence and give strength, health, happiness and satisfaction. Such foods are juicy, fatty, wholesome, and pleasing to the heart," and, "Food that is tasteless, decomposed and putrid, and food consisting of remnants and untouchable things is dear to those in the mode of darkness."

When you pick carrots you are taking the life of that vegetable.
Seeds are the unborn children of the plant.
You cannot eat without killing.
When eating meat many people can feed on one animal.
It takes many fruits or veggies to feed one person.
You have worse karma by not eating meat than by eating it.
I think there is a large difference.
1. Animals, mammals especially like us love their children and have a life very like your own. They want what we want to protect their Family, nest or area they live in and be well fed.
2. Plants are raised humanly please look at how your beef pork and chicken are raised and what they endure.
3. Many plants are created in a way meant to be eaten to spread their seeds.
4. plus many other

If we truly were meant to be vegan we'd have the same intelligence as every other herbivore on the planet. We're having this conversation precisely because our ancestors were carnivores.
