Grey Magazine, I.IV: Pasture to Plate
For the summer issue of Grey, I decided to explore the reality of being a carnivore. What I thought would be a simple story, I soon realized was one very difficult to tell. There is so much controversy, hypocrisy, taboo and misinformation about our food system, that trying to summarize my navigation of it was a monumental undertaking. In the end, I hope this essay conveys one person’s attempt to do what is right for her…and by her, I mean me.
And, for my Uncle Sally, if you are reading this, please try not to hate me just because we may not see things the same way. I loved Chico and I love you.
