I opted several years ago to make it a policy never to declare myself to be a â€œvegetarian,â€ even if I am at the time practicing non-meat-eating, which I have from time to time. See, when you declare yourself a vegetarian, you have to stay away from eating meat and such, which is a problem, because meat tastes good.
However, Iâ€™ve got a renewed interest in the practice of eating lower on the food chain after reading about the slaughter of tens of thousands of chickens in India due to a fear of the â€œbird flu.â€ Thatâ€™s just disgusting. Those birds wouldnâ€™t even be farmed if folks didnâ€™t want to eat them. Now that the farmers have arranged for their existence, they have to kill all of them. Thatâ€™s a sick situation.
Bean and rice burritos are delicious.
