Is it Worth it to Become Vegan or Vegetarian?

When I think of bacon, I am immediately filled with great joy. The thought of sizzling, juicy bacon for a meal gives me pleasure, but then I remember where it came from. I also love pigs and don’t want to contribute to their death, so if I have to cut down on my bacon consumption, I will do so even if it’s hard. 

Meat consumption contributes to a large amount of the greenhouse gases emitted. The simplest thing we can do for this is to stop eating it or at least eat significantly less meat. If there’s less demand, less gases are emitted. 

For some people, the thought of eating less meat is easy. For others, it’s more difficult for various reasons. Personally, the reason for me would be because I enjoy eating certain meats and because of my health when I’m in a Crohn’s flare up. There can be some health benefits to eating healthy meals with meat in them, and if I gave that up during a Crohn’s disease flare up, my options would be severely limited. For other people like me, they can’t give up meat completely for the health benefits. So, it may be a good idea to do a seasonal meatless idea where meat is only consumed for a particular reason at a particular time.
