But before eating them on Sunday, I decided it's not only foolish, but wasteful, to not eat hotdogs.
First, I'll only eat bird hotdogs (hotdogs made from turkey & chickens) because I rarely eat beef. I can only eat so many tortured animals, and when I do buy birds, I will usually look for the cage-free dead.
So, no beef dogs for me. But beef eaters, unless they don't like the taste of hotdogs, should eat beef dogs.
And bird eaters, unless they don't like the taste of hotdogs, should eat bird dogs.
From the Manataka American Indian Council:
American Indians know to respect Nature and kill only what we eat and use every part of the animal.
If we're going to kill them, we should use every bit of them. Their hides, their meat - whatever part of the body it comes from.
As an animal lover (but also as a believer in a natural ecosystem and food chain), I think the most responsible way to eat our animals is to eat every part of them - if it tastes good to us - without letting a culturally manufactured repulsion of what is "gross" and what is "edible" inhibit our taste.
Once a hotdog avoider because of the "ew" factor, I'm now an avid hotdog proponent. Yay to the hotdog industry, using the parts of the animal that would otherwise be wasted.
