So funny how it changes based on the animal, especially when it’s pig versus dog. I went to Farm Sanctuary recently and hung out with some pigs and was shocked by how much they are like dogs. I knew they were smart, but they are also snuggly and love belly rubs and treats. The only difference between the two animals is our arbitrary determination that one is a pet and one is food.
Ah, the dreaded protein question. For those of you who are concerned about protein because you work out, think about the fact that the biggest and most jacked animals are all vegan or close to it: elephants, gorillas, giraffes, most whales. The biggest dinosaurs were vegan. It’s hard to believe any human, no matter how fit, needs more protein than a badass gorilla!
