Why I don’t eat meat

8 reasons to give up eating meat today

I was a meat eater all my life.

I was born and raised in Kazakhstan, where all Kazakh people are huge meat eaters, with horse meat being a traditional meat. Kazakh and Russian cultures were mixed in Kazakhstan in the course of history giving access to meat delicacies of Russian cuisine as well.

I came to Korea in 2013, to discover that Koreans are huge meat eaters too. Unlike Kazakhstan where pork is not so popular among Kazakh people since they are mostly Muslims, in Korea people show no mercy to poor piggies. Neither did I when I first arrived in Korea. Seduced by the new range of tastes, I went nuts for a meat-eating fiesta and in two weeks in Korea I gained 5 kilograms.
