A preference for vegetables


Sir: I’m not a happy meat eater. Despite arguments from my wife, friends and family (and Bruce and Mary Beth of The Chatham Voice) I maintain that God says “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.”

That’s what Moses wrote in Genesis, anyway, and I wouldn’t argue with a fellow who led the Children of Israel through the Wilderness for 40 years!

Now, the Canada Food Guide, in its first update in more than a decade, recommends fruits and vegetables rather than animal flesh.
