Food for thought.

There was a big reaction from netizens when Food Diary decided to raise a chicken and use it for food to show the process of how food is prepared.

I believe such reactions from netizens occurred because we’ve experienced eating animals but not catching and slaughtering them. So with that in mind, I believe the program is very meaningful.

I’ve caught a chicken with my grandma before. My grandma cut off the chicken’s neck and placed the chicken in my arms. I felt the chicken’s life being taken away with my body. That experience was very helpful to me. You have to eat everything when you are eating chicken. We are taking away a life when eating meat.”

    It may be because of the mindset of, yes, raising it only just to kill it for food later on, but also about whether or not it was going to be slaughtered in a humane way. Did the show speak about how it was going to be slaughtered??

      No, they just mentioned that it would be slaughtered. Even if the netizens were opposed to the chicken being raised to be killed – isn’t that what’s happening everyday with our food? It’s like the nutritionist mentioned, they’ve never experienced where poultry/meat comes from, so it’s a huge shock to them. But it’s natural. That’s how we ate for years before industrial agriculture came along. Everything was gathered by us – there was excess and no wastage.

      I think that’s what the show is trying to convey – we need to know where our food comes from to appreciate it and not waste it.
