Vegetarians and vegans often believe their diets are healthier for the environment, and help promote animal rights. This isn’t always the case. Often these diets consist of highly processed products from the industrial agricultural complex that only help promote the monoculture thousands of acres. In episode 35, we talk to Kate Kavanaugh, a former vegetarian who made the transition to an omnivorous diet and became a butcher, eventually opening her own butcher shop – Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe – in Colorado. We talked about how Kate came to make this transition, regenerative farming pracatices, and what makes Western Daughters so unique.
