Vale gave me her opinion on me going veg, and while it was what I was intending on doing, it just sounds good when someone else confirms your thoughts. :p She wondered why I didn't want to consume dairy products, because she said it's not killing animals. The treatment is still the same, they are over-milked, calves are taken away from their mothers and can't even drink their mothers' milk, the waste from raising animals for milk is still there, and likely they're just slaughtered for meat in the end anyway, with the way practices are going these days. But I digress. She suggested I stay on milk, cheese and yogourt for now, which is what I am going to do. Somehow I keep not having moments to tell my mom, but I must do it tonight. I've had fish a few times, but I can't think of the last time I consumed chicken, pork, ham, or beef. I need to tell her so meal adaptations can be made. And who knows, my family may end up eating more healthily because of this.
