Had a really great vegan sandwich from a “green” catering truck yesterday. Must admit, this is a great concept, and again, very tasty. They serve beef hamburgers and hot dogs, as well; which I’m sure are excellent, too.
But I’m getting to the point where I wonder, in the light of the fact that it takes ten times the energy to produce a calorie of energy from meat as it does from plant sources, if there is such a thing as “sustainable” or environmentally friendly meat?
I’m not saying this to be judgmental, I’m actually curious – as an environmentally conscious omnivore, how do you see the production of meat in your diet, and in terms of environmentalism. This catering truck, for example, uses only organic meats and sources everything locally that they can. Is that enough? Is vegetarianism enough?
I don’t know, so please let me know your thoughts.
