Meatless Monday is Misguided

This morning on KPCC, I heard a report about Meatless Monday. It shows up in my Twitter feed as well. Frankly, today I had to say something: humans are designed to eat meat!

The Meatless Monday site lists several reasons to give up red meat. Just to be clear, I do not participate in this misguided movement. First, I feel better when I eat sufficient amounts of meat, especially from cattle, lambs, and pigs. Chickens are marginal. Fish goes in waves (sometimes I do well; sometimes it’s not a good idea). Second, I believe the evidence that defines humans as omnivores.

As an avowed grass-fed meat eater, I have a few questions:

I shan’t give up red meat on Mondays or on any other day. I save the environment by eating primarily grass-fed meat from happy, well cared for animals, who are not filled full of drugs.

Do you participate in Meatless Monday? Why or why not?
