Almost every person in this world has his or her own diet. We are different and we have different taste in food. Some people have allergic to some kinds of food. However, the majority of society is in love with eating meat. The United States of America is one of the most countries that consume a lot of meat. We can say that American diet is the worst because of the amount of meat that they eat daily. I came from a background that consumes a lot of meet too, we usually have meat once a day. We eat a lot of meats because it is something in our culture. We have a famous traditional dish in our country called Kabsa, and it is made of rice and meat mixed with a lot of spices. We have this dish or something similar to it at least six meals on once week. In addition to that, because we are Muslims, we do not eat any kind of meat unless it is halal. Halal meat means when you sacrifice the animal it has to be faced to the direction that we face when we pray, which is Makkah. Also, we must say “Be esm Allah” which is “by the name of God” before we kill the animal. In this situation, it is really hard to find halal meat in non-Muslim’s countries. When I came to the USA, I couldn’t find halal meat easily. I had to travel about an hour to a city nearby to find halal meat. One day I went to that store to buy halal meat, but what I found made me rethink about eating that meat. The chicken is really huge, which made me concern because halal chicken cannot be in this size. Since that day, I never had anything made of meat or have meat on it. It was little bit difficult for me. Especially, when you go to a good restaurant, and you see a juicy burger or a well done steak. I usually have bread, eggs, cheese and sometimes milk for my breakfast, ric... ... middle of paper ... ...f that we become addicted to these kind of food. Moreover, God always asked us to take care of ourselves and to make sure that we are in a good health. “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well” (3 John 1:2). And that’s means we should be careful about what we eat, because it is not effecting only our health but it effects our souls too. Also, God said “Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, for the Lord will take up their case and will exact life for life.” (Proverbs 22:22-23) Which makes me think about the fact that these poor people does not have the amount of money that could make them able to afford healthy food and these companies are making their unhealthy, risky food cheap which will force poor people to buy it and that is unfair.
