I have been thinking about stopping eating meat for many months. I don't have any problems eating meat from animals kept and killed humanly, but I hate factory farms and other animal cruelty.
Yesterday I stopped at the traffic lights and I pig transporter truck pulled up next to us. It was a really sad thing to see. All the pigs were overcrowded, some having to walk or lay on top of others, many squashed into the sides and corners and they were screaming and many were covered in blood.
The temperature was so hot and they had no shade. I this this is so wrong. Even if I choose carefully at the supermarket for free range food I can not be sure the animals are treated OK. Also when eating in restaurants there is no way of knowing where the meat comes from.
The only reason I hesitate to go vegetarian is because its hard to find any food without meat in it here in Thailand. I would have to cook most of my own food.......and I am lazy! Is it difficult to make delicious vegetarian food. I don't have a lot of time as I work a lot and am so tired when I come home.
