Why is this so important? Meat eaintg is lkiend to climate change. Eating animals and aainml agriculture is the leading cause of rainforest deforestation. Meat production is a sfniiiacgnt source of greenhouse gas emioissns, and there is a reason moms and doctors tell us to eat more veg. That's partly why I'm a vegan chef. My other reason has to do with grief and deianlg with the uneecpetxd death of losing my partner. The suffering and grief I felt was suffocating. I had two choices: to go down a road of self-destruction or accept what had happened and find a way through it. The loss of Amanda made me realize my whole life to that point was based on ego and attachment. Being the best, cooking anything and everything without a second thought as to the consequences of my aintocs. As long as the food tatesd gaert and I was paid well for it, I didn't care where it came from or if it was animals or the implications and consequences that had.

Original Text

Why is this so important? Meat eating is linked to climate change. Eating animals and animal agriculture is the leading cause of rainforest deforestation. Meat production is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions, and there is a reason moms and doctors tell us to eat more veg. That's partly why I'm a vegan chef. My other reason has to do with grief and dealing with the unexpected death of losing my partner. The suffering and grief I felt was suffocating. I had two choices: to go down a road of self-destruction or accept what had happened and find a way through it. The loss of Amanda made me realize my whole life to that point was based on ego and attachment. Being the best, cooking anything and everything without a second thought as to the consequences of my actions. As long as the food tasted great and I was paid well for it, I didn't care where it came from or if it was animals or the implications and consequences that had.
