Forgot to add: don’t be surprised if your son also deviates from your rules and philosophy the minute he moves out.
And, you should know that there is scientific evidence that vegetables don’t taste the same to all of us. Based upon differing genetic makeup, even between siblings, some will taste most vegetables as objectionably bitter, while other sibs will not taste bitter and see the same vegetables as just fine.
Btw, I’ll add that I do eat meat but am trying to give up, and have majorly cut back, eating mammals. I am also willing to pay more for eggs and meat from more humanely raised chickens.
I also recognize that, outside of basically India, cows would not exist, apart from zoos, if humans didn’t raise them for milk and meat. If a law was passed tomorrow requiring every American to be vegan, then farmers and ranchers would stop raising farm animals. So, unless you feel that farm animals are so exploited and suffer so much that they would be better off if they never existed, you aren’t doing them any favors.
