Modern wisdom might lead you to believe that animal-product-free living is the only way to eat with your conscience intact. Sure, you’re eschewing meat, cheese and other products produced at the expense of a living creature — but it might not be the best diet for you and your health.

Fortunately, there are ways to rectify an omnivorous diet in your mind and in your heart. The following four tips will help you become an ethical meat eater, which means you can feel good about what you eat, animal product or not.

1. Make Fruits and Veggies Your Base

There’s a reason people can be healthy on a vegetarian or vegan diet: Fruits and vegetables contain so many of the vitamins and minerals our bodies need. That’s why your body still needs nourishment from fresh produce, even if you’re eating meat or adding it back into your diet.

Start your foray into life as an ethical omnivore by making fresh produce the basis of all your meals. You might go for a grilled chicken breast served over a bed of lettuce, a handful of meatballs over a bed of zucchini noodles or even a green smoothie for breakfast — it doesn’t matter.



Adding a healthy serving of vegetables and fruits into every meal will make your diet more varied and, therefore, healthier. And, it’ll make you feel good about your omnivorous food choices if the base of your diet is fresh produce instead of animal products.
