I am not saying there is anything wrong with beef, in fact, meat itself can act like a superfood. Its high in iron, protein and B12. However, unless you are purchasing organic meats from conscious farms, it can also contain hormones, dyes and be full of trauma. Yes, trauma….
When the poor cow is on the conveyor belt preparing to get its head chopped off, a surge of stress fuelled adrenaline pumps through its body, it’s terrified and in despair and we eat those same chemicals released from the cow.Sound a bit far fetched?
I guess it also depends on the cows life. Was it happily allowed to roam free in the meadow, or was it chained to a barn with 1000 other cows, whipped on the butt and forced to eat GMO corn and antibiotics? Again, these emotional chemicals and stress hormone-by products from the cows are also ingested into our bodies when we eat the meat.
Sorry for the graphical image but do you really want to be eating this??
I guess it almost makes sense why people are paying top dollar to eat meat from cows that have been massaged and played music to every day. Its because it tastes better. Happy cows equals tastier meat.
But it doesn’t seem that all of humanity has reached that level of consciousness just yet. So, either adopting a vegetarian diet or buying organic and grass fed is the way to go.
Cows are amazing creatures and on this journey to enlightened consciousness it is important to remember that all beings are one in the same.
