I NEED A RESTRAINING ORDER

I FEEL LIKE I NEED A RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST THE DAIRY INDUSTRY

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.
