Changing the way I Eat? What’s That?

6 Dec

Changing the way I eat? This can mean anything, from meals to snacks. I can change the snacks that I eat on a daily basis. But I cannot change the meals such as dinner and lunch. This won’t happen because the I am not the cook and When I get home the food is already made and ready to be eaten. The food I eat everyday is pretty much meat, rice, some vegetables, some fruit, and beans. During these times of food, I drink water, powder made juice or soda. To change this would take a lot about me because I am already used to this life style. I am used to the food I eat and the time spent eating this food has grown on me and thats almost all I eat. This change can really affect my life but I don’t think I am the person for a change like that. I cannot change the way I eat and have the food that my mother made just go to waste. For me to make a change like this I will have to change the way the people around me eat. This means I will have to cut down on my store or Bodega bought snacks: soda, chips, candy and anything else I want to buy from a store. I will have to carry my own food and get used to eating. This change will take a while to get used to and will take a  lot  of my life away from me.  Well everyone just needs a push and some help to make them see how this change can make them feel better about them selves and see a change in their body and habits.

Well  after seeing the movie King Corn and witnessing animals being tortured and killed for unexplained reasons have changed the way I think about food. If only everyone can see the  dangers and the mysterious things that happen on farms. Animals being treated as if they don’t have feelings or a sense of direction for their lives. If people can see how animals are killed when sick and kept in huge rooms and thrown around in machines to seperate them. Baby chicks were thrown into machines to seperate them from male and female. Males killed for extra meat and females raised to lay eggs and create more chicks. This process was disturbing because as they are being transported to the machines you can see dead chicks on the floor and no one bothers to clean this room or care about it. Cows were all bunched up in a room eating all day and given water. They had no freedom to walk around and excersize. In the process of cows eating they get sick and if not treated then they will die. They get surgury done by opening their stomachs and digging out all the food that stays left over around their organs. They do this to make the cows have enough meat to be killed and sold for more money.

This experience has officailly changed my mind about the way I think about food and how I will eat for the remainder of my days. If this cannot change your ways of eating I don’t know what will. The thing you should think about is how these animals are being treated, kindly or like nothing? If they are being treated in a way that makes you sick, why continye to eat thses animals? The more you eat these types of meat the more farms are going to produce them for the goverment to sell. So with that said, if we all can change a day or two, and not eat meat, then we can make a big difference in the governments desicion to provide us with meat and they’ll stop hiring farms to produce them. Animals will live free and have normal lives like they should.
