What are you REALLY eating?

With so many people switching to a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle these days, I’m taking this opportunity to “raise the curtain” on meat. Why do we not call a spade a spade? Why do we work so hard to separate ourselves from what we are eating? Are we in denial? Some people would offer thanks for the animal that has lost its life for our meal. Today we have become so distant from how our food is produced that sometimes we don’t even know what animal it is that we are eating. Would we really eat this if packages were named appropriately? See for yourself from the list below.
