If you were a koala and you were about to eat something besides eucalyptus leaves I could say “STOP! You CAN’T eat that!” If you were a koala, the only thing you could eat that works is eucalyptus.

As a human, we can eat almost anything, Omnivores (for the most part) aren’t limited by digestion. What that means is that it’s not wrong to be a meat eater, vegan, raw foodist, pescatarian, or even bananatarian. All we have to go on is how well the choice works over time. Even with that, our body isn’t the ONLY thing that we consider when we eat. Being human means that there are a myriad of reasons that we make choices – not just nutritional, but social, political, psychological, and ethical.

With every passing year, nutrition dogma shifts. We really end up making choices based on what we prefer, our results, how we feel, what impact we want to have, and how we want to interact with the world. It can come across as a dilemma, but it’s not so much of a dilemma as it is a delight. We have freedom to choose. Let’s rejoice that we aren’t koalas! We could HAVE to eat something and we don’t! We’re free!

For me, eating meat is a quasi-spiritual experience. But I could honestly have said the same thing about tempeh back when I was a vegan. It’s not true, it totally subjective. And I still love it! What are the reasons you make the food choices you make?
