  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our planet and other people?

    We just seem to be spoiled and entitled to indulging regularly.

    I tried really hard not to drive these extra miles today, but the stars would not align. I will conserve this weekend for sure.

    I have been doing really good at the meatless meals and 5 minute showers. The spot light or ask to reduce water usage has added a sense of urgency, and while it is not my active goal for this portion, I am really happy about what I am achieving when it comes to the showers.

    been doing well with two or three meals a day without meat, but I today I made up for those two. More often than not though, I have been reducing meat greatly.

    Well, you can't make this stuff up. I was out at the beach with my children and my dog to watch the sun set. We were already there for a few hours with a tent set up and all. Unfortunately something got into my dog and she attacked another dog costing me $1200 in vet bills. Car is still in the shop for no reason other than the dealership is short staffed, so I am easily meeting the driving challenge because I have no choice. Really want to work on more vegetarian meals this week.

    Having a dog makes this one easy to do.

    Still don't have my car back from the shop, so I have no choice but to make this happen right now.
