    Loved the post!

    I think the LDS church should advocate portion control as well as lowering their intake of meat. I can’t understand why so many members are over weight when the teachings clearly say to eat meat during times of famine/winter. I turned vegetarian a couple of years ago and the looks I got from the reflief society sisters were good enought to kill a cow. :)

    It’s odd how members and the church have adhered like Pharisees to the letter of certain portions of the Word of Wisdom (e.g. tobacco, coffee, and tea) yet ignore entire passages (e.g. eat meat sparingly and drink mild barley drinks) and miss the spirit of it altogether. Many Mormons almost make up for all the stuff they avoid by eating more than a healthy portion of sugar.

    i’m thrilled to see a rising tide of changing consciousness about food. we went vegan three years ago and now we’re trying a raw diet; we want to experience our food as close as possible to how it came out of the ground. our kids have always been very healthy, intelligent and normally developed, and when i look at our parents and most of the people of that generation and the one before, it seems that something has got to change; we simply cannot go on as we have, if we care an ounce about our health, the planet or future generations. thanks for posting this.
