For some time in last year I became vegan for some months. The reason at that time was that eating animal proteine is going to cause cancer and all the dairy products will have all animal harmones which are required for the kid of that anomal and not for human body.
Even though those reasons are perfectly valid, I some how got tempted by the taste of Chicken Biryani. First the excuse of late night dinners in office for some project work, and then excuse of fasting. As I do fast for 24hr to 72hrs a week, I give justification that I need to eat Chicken to get enough nutrients. There is no valid theory or math behind it.
After reading ‘Sapiens’ and then ‘Homo Deus’ by Yuval Noah Harari now I want to go back to Vegan again.
The reason now is much more compelling and natually close to my personality and attitude. Harari reminds us that those farm animals might have emotions. They might have conciousness and they might feel just like us. Even though Chicken and Diary industry is not as crual as it is in western countries, as we keep eating those stuff, it will soon become similar to that. The way that industry works is very very crual, and it is almost impossible for me to tolerate all that cruality. A one second thought of putting myself in the place of those animals is horrible.
Actually this is the reason why I stopped eating chiken when I was still in school. I could not tolerate the cruality which I saw in my NCC camp.
So decided to become vegan again.
Regarding compensating the fasting, I might just have to eat some quality food. Looking more towards flax seeds for protein and fat. Need to make better recipies with that ingradient.
