Continuing Vincent's interviews with people who have been influenced by One Step's message:
One Step For Animals: Hi Danyelle! What made you decide to stop eating chicken?
Danyelle: I grew up in a house that lived on meat. Every night of the week was a different type. I have gone in and out of eating meat since moving out 7 years ago. But now I am making a commitment to not eating meat – in particular chicken because this is the cruelest of all in the meat industry. What made me finally turn was watching a video of baby chicks be killed.
One Step: Since you stopped chicken have you increased eating other meats / animal products?
Danyelle: Nope! I am increasing my vegetables and legumes instead!
One Step: What other yummy foods have you discovered since not eating chicken?
Danyelle: I’m loving tofu. As we are heading into winter, I’m really enjoying making Moroccan stews and Sri Lankan curries with lots of spices and herbs!
One Step: What have been the reactions from friends and family?
Danyelle: My parents think I’m adopted as I don’t drink alcohol either! So they were shocked at the start with me not eating meat. But now they are used to it.
One Step For Animals: Well done, Danyelle! Great to hear. Would you like to add anything?
Danyelle: Go out, read the information, and see for yourself. The truth is that if every individual had to watch/take part in actually killing their own dinner, I doubt most people would consider eating meat!
