Remember this before I explain my point of view,
I was a meat eater once. I understand the hardships of taking animal flesh (meat) out of your everyday life.
When I was a meat eater I even hated the idea of Veganism too! It's so weird that things that you don't expect to happen, happen anyways.
The concept of knowing that you're not contributing to the harming or suffering of animals is what I would personally follow in my every day life!
Each day I know that I'm doing something good for the planet and I'm also not supplying these big animal industries with money so they can keep putting living beigns in situations where they're already dead at birth.
Not to mention the terrible living conditions these beigns have to go through everyday just so we can eat their flesh at the end of the day!
