Going Meatless - Barriers

Talk to Me About Food

We are not flocking to vegetarianism, and even less to veganism. In fact, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization projects that meat consumption will grow by 2% in the U.S. through 2027.

Between 20% and 30% of Americans say they are trying to cut or even drop meat-eating all together. Is it really happening? The increasing popularity of plant-based meat alternatives like the Impossible and Beyond Meat burgers shows that we are willing to try meatless options. We have a long way to go, despite the compelling arguments to go meatless; the ethics and morality of eating animals and/or the treatment of animals in the industrialized farm system, the environmental impact of large-scale animal agriculture, the health concerns around eating a lot of meat, and the health benefits of eating a plant-based diet.

This podcast explores our deep-seated attachment to meat and the journey most of us considering going meatless must travel to get there, with the help of Dr. Paul Rozin, a preeminent food psychologist who coined the term “Omnivore’s Dilemma” more than 40 years ago.

Hello, Hello! Going meatless is a journey. Making every meal at home for the past 6 weeks got me thinking that some of us are living through another step in that journey; a retreat to meat (fresh meat sales are way up) or a lurch towards plant-based foods. Here I consider the triggers and barriers in either direction.
