I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now so here it goes. I normally don’t watch tv. Or at least tv that has commercials. I don’t own cable at my apartment. But I’ve been home at my parents for the past 2 weeks.
I’ve been over at my grandma’s watching tv over there and now I see the commercials again. Eat meat. Eat more meat. Why don’t you put dairy on that meat? Want a hamburger, why don’t you add bacon and cheese to it? Eggs for breakfast. Eggs, bacon, and sausage for breakfast. You get where I’m going.
A lot of people criticize vegans for “shoving their views at people.” But are vegans the ones who are actually shoving their views at people? Or is it the meat, dairy and egg industry? Even if you watch tv shows or movies. People drink milk, eat bacon, cheese ect. Or if a character is vegan or even vegetarian they are made fun of for it.
The only show that has a vegetarian in a good light is Disney’s new show K.C. Undercover. The character K.C. is vegetarian. I’m sure that it’s because Zendaya is vegetarian and she is a named producer.
Everywhere I turn people, mainly the media, are telling me that I should consume copious amounts of meat, dairy and egg to be “normal”. There is some commericals for almond milk but they are few and far between.
And then there are the commercials for fiber supplements. Things that eating meat, dairy and eggs don’t provide. You wouldn’t need to take fiber supplements if you ate a whole food plant based diet. Or diet pills and diet plans. Eating a whole foods plant based diet can help you lose the weight. It will just not be as quick of a result. But you would be healthier.
