Can you remember the last time the food you ate made you feel a certain way?
When I became a vegetarian thirteen years ago, I would often tell others that I felt better when I didn’t eat meat. Such positive feelings were quickly eclipsed, however, by ill health caused from anemia and vitamin deficiency.
I realize now that my body was reacting to the way food was raised. I reacted negatively to the additives, hormones, and drugs that were put into animals. (And I didn't want to eat animals raised that way!) However, I was also missing the nutrition that industrial farming practices remove from their meat products.
