  • What’s the Difference Between Eating Cats, Horses, Pigs, and Dogs?

The choices we make about who we eat are cultural. They have nothing to do with biology. That’s why any talk of the “necessity” of eating animal flesh is balderdash. Saying “we have to eat beef for chicken or turkey for our health” is as arbitrary and ridiculous as saying “we have to eat dogs, cats, and horses for our health.” Eating one animal over another has nothing to do with necessity or our physiological makeup and everything to do with the habits we form based on the culture we live in. To the animals, it’s all the same.

About Colleen

Hello, and welcome. I’m Colleen, aka The Joyful Vegan, and I’m here to give you the tools and resources you need to eat, cook, travel, and live compassionately and healthfully. 

Donating = Loving

For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant. What you see (and hear and watch) is a one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor has impacted your life in the past year (or the past decades), please consider aiding its sustenance by becoming a patron or by making a one-time donation. Your support makes all the difference.
