I have pretty much have been vegetarian my whole life. Meat has never sat right with me on so many levels. It could be because I'm half Indian, or my body and soul just knew that it wasn't right ethically, spiritually, mentally, and physically. However, I have indulged from time to time in eggs, cheese, and yogurt. Lately, I've been full force vegan. Going vegan was not intentional, just basically listening to my body, who has been completely turned off to any animal products.
The thought of eating an animal and collecting their karma is repulsive to me. Not only are you accumulating their karma, but you also created karma for yourself. You've engaged and helped someone hurt an innocent creator.
Look, I get it, my Italian/Irish American father's side had a farm, and yes, animals were sent out and slaughtered. I remember vividly going to the auction, watching the bidding, and then being taken to see what happens after. I was so upset and spent days crying.
I never understood why my grandfather took me there, and I question this till today. He knew how I felt about the animals, and he knew I had a problem eating meat like WTF!
I don't even know why I shared that memory. Maybe it was to express my guilt and that I have a lot of ancestral cleaning up to do, and perhaps that's why I'm here today sharing ayurvedic recipes.
On a happy nutritional note, these eggs are so yummy, so healing and detoxing.
They are also full of protein and fiber.
