***I do not mean this to begin a war between 'meat-heads' and 'veg-heads', but rather to enlighten me as to the reasons for your particular choice
WHY do you eat meat?
WHY do you eat only veggies?
I am a meat-eater. I was raised that a dinner plate as meat, potatoes, and a vegetable. I eat meat because it's become habit. I was taught that meat
is part of the 'food pyramid', and that because of that placement, it is a necessary food to eat. There's also the ubiquitous holiday traditions,
which always have several forms of meat involved. I like the taste of meat (especially when it's medium-rare, more rare than medium).
Right now, I'm debating going vegetarian simply because meat is too expensive. (fruits and veggies aren't exactly cheap, but they are cheap-er than
meat.) I'm also debating going vegetarian because of the ethics involved in eating meat, in light of a philosophy class that I am taking.
So, what are your reasons for your particular 'main course'?
