What we place in our mouths, savor, chew or even spit out is closely tied to pleasure, family, culture and memory. We are in no small way exactly what we eat.
What do you eat? Today, I’m mostly interested in drawing from the experiences of carnivores versus vegetarians. I have so many people in my life who are firmly carnivorous, and others that are equally intent upon their vegetarian or even vegan diets.
Personally, I have never felt well without some form of flesh protein in my diet, be it fish, meat, or eggs. Eating meat is important for me. At the very minimum, fish in my diet regularly and red meat once a month at low tide.
So how about you? Do you file your canines every night so you can rip apart a good bit of flesh or do you stick to the lighter side of edible life?
