    Hi, Darya!

    I appreciate all that you have done to educate your readers on the realities and dangers of industrial animals and animal products.

    Your advice on a certain kind of situation would be so appreciated: the situation where you find yourself in a restaurant that very likely procures their animal and animal products from sources that engage in unethical, inhumane, and unhealthy practices.

    These situations arise when family and friends select the restaurant and I simply agree and play along for a number of reasons. Given what you have taught us about the health effects of industrial animal meat/product consumption, do you tend to avoid both animal meat and products as much as you can and focus on feeling satiated with veggies? Do you prioritize animal products (e.g. cheese) over meat (e.g. chicken)? Vice versa?

    Thank you again for all of your help!

      Great question. Whenever I’m in that situation I do my best to avoid the meats, especially beef. I’ll eat eggs if I have to go a long time in this environment (more than a couple days). My skin is sensitive to dairy so I avoid cheese. I’m not perfect though, and do make exceptions. Taste is a factor for me. For instance, when I visit family I have a favorite, super authentic Mexican restaurant where I eat whatever I want (except cream). Prices indicate it isn’t grass-fed, but I do this very rarely.

What do you think?
