Is Michael Pollan Asking Me To Eat More Meat?
But is eating meat sustainable? This is a question I think about a lot. In fact, we talk about it a lot while we’re working in the meat locker. You might find that surprising, but we truly do put a a lot of thought into how we eat meat, why we eat meat, as much as we do what meat we should eat. I don’t have any brilliant revelations here, but Pollan’s work in the chapter on fire has prompted me to consider the positive role meat can play in our relationship with vegetables. Sure, we eat meat. And yes, there’s good reason to believe we eat meat because our ancestors learned that it’s easier to preserve, easier to digest, and our own cultural imperative to gather over the table stems from this history of cooking over the fire. But in turn this means we must consider the positive role that eating vegetables must play in our relationship to eating meat.
