我吃素的朋友

我有一位吃素的朋友。我今天問她關於吃素的經驗。她十年以前決定了吃素了。她沒想到為了吃肉必須死動物,而且她爸媽那個時候已經吃素。基於理由(jīyú lǐyóu),讓她決定很容易。她也告訴我,她在進步城市住了六年了。在這些城市,很多人考慮營養和健康的生活。現在吃素不是只吃沙拉或著青菜漢堡。她認為越來越多人考慮自己的健康和污染,吃素會變成比較受歡迎。

Her exact English response to me:

I became a vegetarian nearly 10 years ago, mainly because I couldn't stand the thought of having animals slaughtered for consumption. That thought, coupled with the fact that I grew up with my parents being vegetarian, made the decision easier. I also have lived in progressive cities that are focused on health and wellbeing for the past six years, so vegetarianism no longer means salads and veggie burgers. The options really are endless. I believe as more and more people focus on their health and the environment, vegetarianism will only become more widespread.
