Eating Meat In Time
By Atom Bergstrom
Re: What time to eat meat?
Whatever the animal eats defines the ecological Growth Zone.
You are what you eat and whatever you ate ate all the way down the food chain.
For example, giraffes only eat leaves from trees, so giraffe chops are a Growth Zone 1 breakfast food.
According to Fabian Faltin (“7 Top Tops for Eating Giraffe,” YouTube, Mar. 7, 2022) …
“Because giraffes feed uniquely on natural growing tree leaves, their meat is much, much richer in minerals and proteins and precious salts than your average farm-raised soya-grain-fed meat. […] Giraffe meat is not comfort food. You are eating bush meat. Engage with it.”
A giraffe puts down about 75 pounds of tender leaves a day.
One kick from one of these long-necked herbivores can kill a lion. Many lions have been dispatched to the afterlife by giraffes.
Squirrels are definitely a breakfast food and so are panda bears and the aforementioned giraffes — but the Chinese government might put you in jail for eating one of their “first class protected species” and you might think twice about hunting giraffes in Africa too.
U.S. pioneers generously partook of squirrels and songbirds. There was even a large songbird food market in Manhattan in the 19th Century.
Other animals eat food from trees (pigeons, deer, kangaroos, goats, rhinos, etc.), but tree foods are NOT their primary food.
