I eat meat, not every day, but I eat it. The question is: should I? How much more does it cost to eat meat? When I get a burger I feel more full than if I eat vegetables, and I’ve been told to finish my meat at the table.Why do we love meat so much? Will we be able to eat #meat the future or will we be eating a plant based diet? Is meat actually more expensive? Is it cheaper to eat healthy?
