Just a small piece of advice regarding how to eat ethically,Â which you can give or take at will. Â I am an omnivore, I couldn’t be a vegetarian because I love meat too much. Â This doesn’t mean that I want animals to suffer cruel and disgusting lives and deaths. Â As a family and as part of our business model we decided to eat ethically treated animals when we can. Â Through the business was not too hard really, we just jumbled some numbers around and were able to fit the extra costs in. Â But as a family on a tight budget (as is everyone else these days) we adopted a simpleÂ strategyÂ which I want to convey to you.
If free range and/or organic meat is 25% more expensive, simply eat 25% LESS
It’s not rocket science is it? Â Western countries generally eat too much meat on our plate anyway. Â This is a way in which you can be both HEALTHIER and more ETHICAL TO ANIMALS.
Benefits of free range and/or organic
- It is a better product
- It is healthier
- Less chemicals
- Better flavour
- Usually locally grown, reared
- If you eat less, then it COSTS EXACTLY THE SAME
