I was just investigating halal slaughter as I was contemplating a beef curry tonight and I quickly came to the conclusion that I don't want to be responsible for the deaths of any more innocent animals. The look on the face of a cow about to be killed was heartbreaking.
I think as a nation of animal lovers, but also mostly carnivores, we have largely made a conscious effort to avoid thinking of the reality of meat production and slaughter. I reckon if people were to be reminded of how the meat they were about to pick off the shelf actually got there, many would think twice.
I'm not sure how I'm going to cope as a lifelong carnivore that absolutely adores chicken and bacon, but I am going to give it my best shot.
Are there any vegetarians here who have any tips or recipes for the newly converted ?
There is a significant possibility that whatever I've posted above is absolute bollocks.
