6 Reasons Why You Should Not Support In Vitro Meat!

Something to definitely think about…Even with this new technology animals will still suffer and we would look at animals as science experiments instead of non-human beings who are alive, feel pain, and feel sadness. It’s better than the current situation, but it’s not the ultimate answer.

Philosophy and Animal Rights

2In looking for an end to the pain and suffering of nonhuman animals in agriculture, In Vitro meat is often promoted as the most promising solution.  In fact, the “father of animal liberation” himself, Peter Singer, applauds the recent effort to produce In Vitro meat: “My own view is that being a vegetarian or vegan is not an end in itself, but a means towards reducing both human and animal suffering, and leaving a habitable planet to future generations. I haven’t eaten meat for 40 years, but if in vitro meat becomes commercially available, I will be pleased to try it” (Singer 2013).

Vega Nutritional Shake – Add Cinnamon

I decided to try Vega Nutritional shake. Well, it’s not as good as Isagenix but Isagenix was very expensive and so I decided to try Vega. I am adding an extra scoop of brown rice for added protein since it only has 15 grams of protein for every scoop. The brown rice scoop has about 13 grams, so all in all the added protein helps.

I am also adding some fiber supplement with probiotics and some fruits, usually strawberries and bananas. It helps with the taste.

The taste: I discovered something, maybe it can help you if you are of the protein shake drinker. Cinnamon. Isagenix has a cinnamon after taste which balances the gross after taste of the protein shake. So I decided to try it with the Vega and it worked! It kind of cancels each other out. So when you’re preparing the protein shake, add a few shakes of cinnamon powder. It makes a HUGE difference!

Let me know if it worked for you!
