From an animal's perspective, breakfast is a meal of mourning.
We know that bacon comes from slaughtered pigs, but eggs and dairy often have cruel side effects too.
With efficiency comes cruelty in our food industry: to weed out unproductive units of production, baby male chicks are ground up alive from the egg industry, and calves are slaughtered for veal in the dairy industry.
We often distance ourselves from food and forget that these units of production suffer and have emotions as well.
Hopefully this is a reminder that they do, often as a result of our collective food choices.
