    Really? I would've thought a simple, 'I don't like the taste of it' or 'It goes against my beliefs' or 'Meat and I just don't agree' would be enough to keep the nosey meat-eaters at bay.

    I eat meat. My family eats meat. We enjoy the taste of it. The end.

    So why do you eat meat, and why do you feed it to your kids?

    I never get a decent answer to that.
    What do you consider a decent answer?

    Because we grow it ourselves, so it is cheap and plentiful for our family.
    Because I love the taste.
    Because it is nutritionally rich.

    I eat meat because I think it is delicious and because, most importantly, I want to.

    I serve meat to my DS because its what I make for dinner. He also finds it delicious and chooses to eat it. Should the day arise that he says he no longer wants it, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. For now though, I must continue to fight him for the last pork chop/steak

    I grew up with meat, and thus a lot of my cooking skill is based around meat-based dishes for dinner. I also like the taste/texture of a lot of meats.

    I would like to go vego, but even if I could over the above, my new stomach requires me to eat lots of protein... thing is, I can't eat lots of food. While you can get a lot of protein from non-meat sources, it also requires that I eat a lot more of those alternatives to meet my 60g a day goal (that's just of protein). I suspect I'll never realistically become a vegetarian while I require so much protein, yet have only a tiny amount of space in my belly to allow me to get it.

    Funny how 'because it tastes nice' is an acceptable reason while 'I do not like the taste of it' is often unreasonable.

    I eat meat because I get very low in iron when I don't. And because my body feels more satiated when I eat it. And you know, lions eat gizelles and all that.

    I was a vego for 11 years. Honestly, ethically I support vegetarianism. But meat just tastes so darn good and leaves me feeling so satisfied. I will feed my daughter meat until such a time as she is able to make her own decision.
