Since going vegan, I have quite obviously found myself to be so much more compassionate toward animals. I've watched many animal ethics documentaries, one of which being the popular "Earthlings". It completely changed the way I look at raw meat. Everything about it repulses me to my core.
I live with two meateaters, and I have found it increasingly more difficult to even see Animal in the fridge, sitting casually next to my delicious coconut water, let alone actually prepare it in dinners like I once did. Obviously, it is not my "job" to make homemade meals for two men. It was even a loved activity once upon a time. But, I simply cannot get over my aversion to handling a carcass or throwing it into the oven. (I actually am getting a gag reflex just typing this.)
Serving them vegan dinners, at the present time, is out. They are not wildly objective to eating a huge, colorful, yummy plate of vegan food or even a rawtill4 delicacy like soups and currys, but they just will not eat this time and time again. Of course, these are adult men and they are able-bodied to serve themselves their own food.
I am wondering..Do any of you prepare dishes with meat in them for your nonvegan family? Has your lifestyle shaken up the dynamics if your usual role was the dinner-preparer? Please share about your feelings if you cook a dinner with meat alternatively to your own.
Thanks and looking to hear from you guys.
I would never prepare or cook non-vegan food for anyone...I do not want to harm people and if you love humans you wouldn't want them to eat animal products.
I don't judge you FYI. I don't know your family's situation exactly....so I mean whatever works for you.
For me I have a long term plan which basically includes my 14 nieces and nephews, my oldest relatives have been exposed to healthy lifestyles before but essentially missed the boat or got on already, and I don't have the time and energy to keep investing in them...(already sent them the book 80/10/10 etc)
I feel you.
Thanks all for your replies :)
Hows your head injury doing BSOA?
My fiancé still eats meat and doesn't want to change this. He accepts that I don't want to eat meat anymore and is quite thoughtfully when it comes to cooking. He offers to prepare the meat-part of his meals on his own and so he does, but we still sit and have dinner together. By the way, it's the only meal we have together since we both work from 7 am to 5 pm. So why shall I destroy the little time we have with needles arguments about veganism? I don't have to the change the world only because I became vegan, do I?
I've read funny stories from other vegan people disgusted by their companions because they would smell terrible. In my opinion this is extremely overdone. My fiance smells as good as always lol.
