Let Them Eat Meat : Interview With an Ex-Vegan: Erim Bilgin
I was vegan for many years for the ethical and "health" reasons (health being a joke, it's ruined my health) and it was difficult for me to overcome the ethical aspects initially. However, I knew that I had to take care of myself first and foremost. There is no point in having morals if you are too unhealthy to live to spread them to others. My morals *were* that meat is wrong to eat because we shouldn't kill animals; it is now that we shouldn't abuse the animals we intend to eat. They DO have a right to a happy and healthy life, even if it is destined to end to feed us.
I used to follow the erroneous belief that "people can thrive and maintain perfect health without animal products, so even though eating meat isn't inherently bad, it simply isn't necessary; furthermore, we shouldn't eat it since it is unethical." However, I know I was misinformed: meat IS vital to our bodies in the majority of cases, if not all cases. It might *feel* wrong to eat cows, chickens, and pigs, but it certainly isn't wrong to want to maintain or improve our health.
You don't necessarily have to jump right in, but the fact that you are bored with your fish means that something needs to change soon. You will either give in and eat good quality meat, or you will end up giving in and eating wheat. The mind can only take so much!
