Have You Ever Heard a Tomato Scream?

Grill it, bake it, fry it...add a couple of side items and you've got a meal. But after much thought about what, or who, was actually sitting on my plate, I have been enlightened...It was so much easier to be ignorant, to dismiss the fact that animals, living breathing, birth-giving creatures are what was sitting on my plate. Bloodied steaks with fat and tendons and all too familiar muscle laying out on its final resting place, a styrofoam tray, with a gauze pad underneath to catch the blood and other drippings. How can we walk past that refrigerated slaughterhouse in the grocery store and not gag? Really? Cows, chickens, turkeys, pigs, every part of their former bodies laid out for purchase. No thank you. The veg lifestyle is so much easier; no decomposing flesh to cook and guilt about where that animal came from and how it met its end...Enlightenment comes slowly, so join us on our journey to VegDomination!
