While I didn't eat much red meat, I loved those Costco chickens! I'd always get the brownest ones because my favorite part was the skin. Bought the bags of frozen, cooked shimp too. Now when I walk by the meat dept. I look at those chickens on the spits and can't even imagine eating them again! I make sure not to look at the butchers cutting up portions of beef or whatever animal it might be for packaging - wish the walls weren't glass! I, too, feel such a peace with this new way of eating! I certainly wouldn't eat my cats, or my neighbor's dogs, so why would I find it acceptable to eat any other animal? Wish I'd come to this realization MANY years ago!
