Several months ago I decided to stop eating meat for ethical reasons. A month or so after that, I decided to stop eating all animal products for health reasons. That foray into veganism lasted until I bumped into a breakfast burrito at the Los Ranchos grower’s market. Back to eggs and cheese. Then fish swam in. Now my dietary rule for myself is to not eat meat from anything that walks on the earth (I thought about making the rule “nothing with feet,” but I wasn’t sure where crabs fit in.). Eggs are a little iffy under that rubric, but I don’t feel like adding a clause excluding embryos.
