Today’s World Vegetarian Day, if you keep track of these types of things.
After being a strict vegetarian for more than a dozen years, I slowly started to eat seafood when I was in medical school.
Ironically, it was Gross Anatomy class that made me reconsider my position. I asked myself why I thought it was ok to dissect another human body yet I was totally grossed out by eating a Filet O’Fish?
Further review reinforced that Filets O’Fish are still pretty disgusting, but every once in a while I would eat high quality seafood, which now boils down to about 4-6 times a year.
Some final words with a bit of humor from A. Whitney Brown:
I am not a vegetarian because I love animals; I am a vegetarian because I hate plants.
