We must not refuse with our eyes what they must endure with their bodies. - Gretchen Wyler.
Sums up perfectly what being a compassionate eater is about. As a vegan this is something i fully understand but living in the world of non-vegans as a majority I sometimes struggle to understand. I constantly hear things like "well i don't want to know about it" or "that is too sad I can't think about it" while they continue going along eating meat and dairy. Sometimes I wonder if only they sat down and spent time learning what these animals go through how it might change actions. Regardless to me compassion means education. And regardless if you are vegan or not you should know where your food comes from!!! Learning about what happened to my food before it entered my belly is a lot of the reason I became vegan. But others refuse to talk about it or get involved with learning where there food comes from and choose to be quiet and attempt to quiet others. SHHHHHH don't talk about it.
