Now imagine an animal being strung up for slaughter. Hes been kept in a closed room with little to no wiggle room, in a highly stressful environment, and probably hears his/her "friends" being killed in a nearby room. NEEEEXT!!
Now the animal is being strung up and the throat is slit, only not as to kill. They want his/her heart to pump out all the blood because its faster this way. In the meantime, the animal is wailing around and dying a horendous death.
Where did this entry come from and why the heck am I talking about this in my AD blog? Weeeell, I thought about it today and in previous days after repeatedly tasting meat that was unbelievably tender. Like, melt in your mouth tender. Like, OMG, what did you do to this chicken/beef/lamb?!
Many of the foods here are halal and it has to do with the way the animals are killed. I definitely think it makes a difference. How tight would your body be if you were in that situation?
Im not even a meat eater like that and, to be honest, I have definitely been lacking on my veggies. Here you get sides like salty pickles,raw cucumbers,a few carrots. . .I want some VEGGIES! and when I finally make it to the veggie souk in Al Mina, they may be good enough to write about.
For now, I dedicate an entry to the art of eating meat.
