Some-one else then joined in our Facebook conversation and was quite adamant we should actually be eating more meat, not less.
For what it is worth, this is my story with regard to meat and the best solution that we have settled for. When I first met Simon I was a virtual vegetarian, not because I didn’t like the idea of eating meat nor because I thought it was cruel. I simply didn’t particularly like meat and found myself feeling very bloated after I ate it. However when I fell pregnant I started to crave meat and so Simon and I tracked down some ethically produced meat sold through a nearby farm butchers and I started to eat meat again. However not in large amounts. This meat was a bit more expensive than comparable supermarket meat and a lot more expensive than the vegetables I had been growing on our allotment. We set a weekly budget and ate good quality meat, but not every day. We ate plenty of locally produced vegetables for a balanced diet and as the meat we bought was not treated with hormones or antibiotics I didn’t feel bloated after eating it. We had found a compromise. Eat meat but make it GOOD meat and don't eat it every day. THIS is what I believe is a step in the right direction but that is probably just too complicated for a meme like this one.
You see being green isn't easy. Everything we do is interconnected so finding the best way to be green is very complicated and in all honesty beyond the likes of us mere mortals to work out. To be green there is not a right or a wrong thing to do because there is not just one form of green - there are at least 50 shades of Green!
