veggie vegan omni ital? whats your diet and hows it relate to your dreadiness (if at all)
Dreads and Diets
I'm technically a pescatarian, although I do have some dairy. I was vegetarian for 10 years, then worked in limited meat (poultry and fish exclusively at the time) because I hadn't been a balanced/healthy veg. and was literally wasting away from malnutrition. My husband likes to remind me that we have all the evolutionary markers of omnivores, not herbivores, so we struggle in our house to find a balance. My biggest thing is that factory farming is both so detrimental morally and health wise that I can't condone it. We stick to vegetables or wild caught fish now, hubby occasionally has chicken with certain things (1-2x a month).
Spiritually I have to say I see all living things as fairly equal, and all energy comes from life forms of one manner or another, plant or animal. But being at the top of the food chain requires some responsibility on our parts for sustainability and morality. Feeding animals to feed ourselves is not sustainable, and nutrition suffers too.
Dairy, while it doesn't sit well with me (lactose intolerance), I don't have a moral issue with. We live right by Organic Valley and Tillamook, and you see the cows roaming free and happy. I know there are farms where that's not the case, but being able to see what we buy is refreshing and comforting.
I'm not sure how that relates to my dreads other than that the ideas on the natural order of things make us who we are, and that there's going to be a higher concentration of "natural-minded" people on a natural dreads forum
