For the last couple months I have been cutting down drastically on my meat consumption for health, laziness and economic reasons. It’s not that I believe eating meat is unhealthy, I just believe I’ve chosen a healthier route by not choosing meaty meals.
I drink/eat soups every day at home made from pork neck bones which have very little meat. $5 worth makes 2 pots of soup that lasts 6 days. They are hearty soups so don’t you worry you mothers out there. I load them up with carrots, broccoli and other greens and throw a can of pre-cooked beans to compensate for the lack of protein that the skimpy bones provide. To fill in the hunger gap I’ll add a bit of rice.
I believe in eating meat but I also believe we could and maybe even should eat less of it. The vegans can preach all they want but a piece of meat can take care of a number of nutritional needs that would require you to find from multiple sources if you were meat-free.
In this video I ghetto blend a smoothie made from an orange, apple, avocado and banana. Usually I would put in some hemp protein powder but I forgot because I’m probably in the early stages of dementia.
