honoring the animals

I saw a buffalo grazing while I was riding this morning. He and I had our own private moment because no one else was around. He was eating some grass and looked up when I rode by and we made eye contact. This is the first time I have seen a live buffalo since I added bison to my diet.

I got a bad feeling in my gut because I am struggling with the fact that I am eating animals for the sake of athletic performance. I am eating THIS animal. My heart and actions aren't in agreement. I am consciously aware that I am not being mindful. I console myself by honoring the animals for giving up their lives for me.
