Against dairy products. Seriously.
I have cut my dairy intake way down. I only drink almond milk. I no longer eat cottage cheese. I have cut way back on the use of cheese in sandwiches. However, I still eat yogurt and ice cream. I still eat cheese pizza. I still put sour cream and cheese on my tacos. I eat butter.
I feel like a hypocrite sometimes, especially since I have seen how badly the animals used for dairy products are treated. I know cow’s make milk for their babies, not so I can have a cheese sandwich. I wish vegan dairy products were more readily available…and affordable. I try not to let it bother me, but sometimes I feel like I need a restraining order against the dairy industry. I am convinced that they keep dairy products cheap as a way to entice poor people to buy them. I also feel like they are addictive.
I will continue to work on eliminating dairy from my diet. I will continue to educate others and fight for-at the very least-better care for the animals.
