Animals suffer greatly at the hands of humans. Extending your compassion to them regardless of their intelligence level, cuteness factor, or other ridiculous measure is like a serious warm fuzzy for the heart.
There are plenty of reasons to leave animals and animal products off your plate, but that’s a personal choice (and sometimes a medical one), and my goal is for those who do choose to consume animal products to do so from a place of compassion.
Each category of food will include my criteria for evaluating companies that make the cut. Please note that I am doing the best I can with the limited resources that I have available. This is very imperfect, relies on google, and reflects my imperfect knowledge of the industry. And, my standards are very high – most of the brands you are familiar with probably won’t meet them.
I welcome verifiable information that contradicts anything I’ve posted about a company and am happy to revisit any listing that does not meet the standards I’ve set. Thank you.
