Meat, Dairy, Eggs, Dead Animals & Blood Foods - Go Vegan
I know that words must convey specific meanings for us to communicate with each other. I have a problem with the word "meat" though... Until about 1300 the term 'meat' referred to any solid food. And the nuts that I eat are also said to be "meat". And so it is too, that my fruits are "flesh" as well - As in "flesh" of a ripe peach, mango, papya, tomato and so forth... And while I may shop for foods that are "meat" and "flesh" - I'm vegan... So I never buy the things that required animal killing: I've come to know them as "blood foods" - dairy, eggs and dead animal parts: Please choose compassion when you shop and eat...
