I saw a field-to-plate documentary approaching 30 years ago, thought "that doesn't have to happen for me to eat" and stopped there and then.

Each to their own though - I don't care what anyone else does and doesn't do, and I cook meat and fish at home for family and friends, including the regular bacon sarnies for my son at weekends, as was the case this morning.

I always buy free range eggs, I used to get them from a local farm. The daft things never roamed far though, just hung round the outside of their house.

I stopped eating red meat 40+ years ago. We used to have a Sunday run out to nearby countryside before lunch, and one day the girls were so happy watching newly born lambs in the fields when suddenly I thought, no way could I possibly go home and eat that poor little thing.
Never touched or eaten red meat since
We went vegetarian soon after and both my girls and now granddaughter are now vegan

I was vegetarian for 11 years, I gradually started to eat meat again about 12 years ago but I donít eat meat every day. I love so many vegetarian and vegan meals so I mix and match. I wouldnít have red meat more than twice a week though.
I assume milk is in a lot of things I eat, chocolate, cake, etc
But I donít drink milk if that makes sense. Black coffee and I donít have cereal nor do I drink milk. If an adult said they drank human breast milk people would be shocked or disgusted but they are happy to drink milk from a cow 🧐
My down fall is cheese. I am actually trying to cut it down because I eat far too much!

Totally and in January have decided to go vegan.
I can not call myself an animal lover till I do this..
I really want to give up Dairy especially... seeing Cows run after their babies stolen, crying for weeks after they are born, they are mothers. I know how I would feel if someone ripped me apart from my baby, to watch them its absolutely heartbreaking.

They had a programme on TV a few years ago where the animals were seen alive, dispatched, prepared, cooked and eaten. It was all watched by a cross section of the public, with differing views, who had the opportunity to eat the meat at the end.

I found it pretty tough viewing and it did give me pause for thought for a few hours.

I guess I then lapsed back into a kind of knowing disassociation between the animal and the food.

I enjoy eating meat and as long as the animal is given quality of life and dispatched in a humane way I don't have an ongoing issue.

Could I dispatch an animal if my family were starving. Yes, I'm sure I could.

Iíve been vegetarian in the past ( for about 15years) until I was 25. Now Iím flexible, I donít eat meat on a Monday & haven't for a couple of years. When Iím only cooking for me, Iím often cooking veggie meals not particularly for ethical reasons though.

But we still eat meat and drink milk, because we like it.
We haven't bought milk since we started the vegan experiment. I find no difference with soy milk in my coffee but I bet my dad would be able to tell the difference so I know it's very personal

I could happily be a vegetarian on animal welfare grounds.
I actually eat very little meat anyway because of my views. The rest of my family do like meat or I would not buy it any longer.
I do know a little bit about milk and I try not to think about it, if I read about it I would be in a real state, even reading this thread will haunt me for ages...
We have free range eggs but there are different degrees of 'free range' too
As I say I'd be quite happy to be vegetarian.
