I have for the past 6 months or so been wondering about meat. And what my feelings towards it are.
I have been a Vegetarian for the past ten years and I thought that was it, I wouldn’t ever wonder or think about moving back to meat eating but truth be told I think my preaching 18 year old self would be ashamed: I don’t know if I care anymore.
The thing I am most curious about it is: would I enjoy it? I have never been drawn in by a bacon sandwich – I never liked them before. But roast beef… or a good piece of chicken or some smoked salmon. Maybe I’ve changed and I would enjoy that.
Teenage Laura was super fussy, didn’t like a lot of vegetables too. Or red wine and I freaking love that now, and there are very few vegetables that I will not eat now. Apart from celery which frankly can do one. So perhaps 28 year old me would enjoy the flavour in a way 18 year old me didn’t…
But the trouble is there really is only one way to know. And that’s to take a bite. Do I dare?
What do you think?
