I have a few friends that have become vegan, and they're really into the diet. I understand the reasons why they've become vegan, but I still haven't become full-on vegan. I obviously know that too much meat is bad for me, but I eat it not because of the nutrition, but for the taste. It's sort of like asking everyone to go sugarless for the rest of their lives. We all know it's good for us, but we're all addicted to it, so we can't.
Food documentaries truly teach us a lot about the foods that we are eating. From how certain foods came to be, to the foods that can ruin our bodies, and even documentaries based on popular and skillful chefs from around the world, not only do some of these documentaries make our stomachs growl from all the food appearing on the screen, but there are documentaries that show us the truth behind some of our favorite foods. Truth as in the ugly truth that will cause us to immediately stop eating those foods. And what other streaming media can provide us with the best food documentaries none other than Netflix?
In school, food fights are something that every teacher dreads — and it's obvious why. They're messy, and if a fight breaks out, they'll have to call parents to get a new change of clothing for the kids that weren't able to dodge milk. Thankfully, most food fights aren't as crazy as the ones you see in movies, and they're usually rather rare.
I've never liked social justice warriors. They always annoyed me, primarily because half of them seem like they're only doing it so they can post about it on Facebook and act like they're holier than thou. I've also never had a problem with people eating meat. I do, however, have a problem with the way most of that meat is obtained. It's one thing to hunt and kill your food- it's quite another to have entire warehouses packed with living beings who are slaughtered brutally by the thousands after a lifetime of mostly suffering. It's quite simple for me, it's a principle based on survival of the fittest- if I can't kill it myself, I don't deserve to eat it. I would be the predator that failed to catch its prey. If I was desperate maybe I could, but at this point in time there's plenty of other things to eat.
