Listen, we love meat as much as the next person. But humankind cannot subside on meat alone. Or, we shouldn’t, anyway. Truthfully there are a lot of good reasons to cut back on the carnivore lifestyle... like protecting the environment, being kinder to animals, reducing the risk of cancer and heart disease, lowering blood pressure, and, in a lot of instances, saving money. But, you know, mostly that first one because, despite what some people say, global warming is very real and is one of the biggest threats facing us today, and a simple thing we can do to at least start to slow it down is eating less meat and more plants.
Luckily, it’s not all bad news. Embracing the vegetarian lifestyle is actually very accessible in a city like San Francisco, which has some phenomenal restaurants where abstaining from the consumption of meat is not only easy, but delicious. We don’t like to go against Kermit the Frog, but maybe being green is easier than he thinks.
