  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    In your opinion, what contributes to people in North America eating more meat than any other countries? What does this say about North American values and ways of living?

    I think in America people think that meat options are cheaper, especially given how inexpensive fast food is.

      I'm looking forward to the price of the Impossible Burger coming down since burger king is going to start to carry it!  It has more protein and less fat than traditional cow burgers, tastes the same and is made from plants!
