I have always taken the attitude of 'supply and demand'....that if you don't physically hand over money for a meat dish then you are doing your bit to slow the demand for meat and therefore the demand for cruel and inhumane and senseless factory farming. So when I have a craving for (organic, free-range) meat, eating a bit off the plate of someone else who has already paid for the meal, doesn't make me feel that guilty as I justify it with not having paid for the meal myself and thus am not funding the industry! As twisted and nonsensical as it may sound....that's how I roll lol. But my question is, simply by eating in a restaurant that serves meat, even if I eat the veg food only, am I continuing to fund the meat industry anyway by adding to the overall profit of the restaurant?? This thought disturbs me! But then it's hard to only eat in vegan/veg cafes all the time especially when socialising. Any other thoughts on this one? Thanks
yes true, you make some good points! But I'm not as bothered when it's cooked in the same pan as I still get cravings for meat now and again.
