Beef – It’s what’s for Dinner or…

ImageI’m reading Kathy Freston’s book, Veganist, and I was struck by these quotes:

It takes many pounds of grain to create just one pound of meat – more than 16 to 1 in the case of beef. Put another way, a quantity of grain that could feed fifty people creates just one 8-ounce steak, a “small” steak by some standards.

If 1 in 10 people around the globe stopped eating animals, it would free up enough food to feed the 1 billion hungry.

    Something like this really brings home the importance of our decisions. The fact that we can even make that decision, rather than having it foisted upon us by geography or fate or whatever, should humble us all. Thank you, Celeste.

    • Hey there Deborah! Thank you so much for your thoughts – I appreciate it:) When I read these quotes, it reminded me of how very fortunate I am. You’re right – it’s humbling.

  2. That is nuts! Why are people still eating meat?

    It would only take 10% of the total population to become Vegan, and you can automatically feed one billion more people! But I think a major part of the problem? Too many people think “someone else” will do it.
