An excerpt from Eating Animals, on a day in which I value a lot of my present food choices:

 As a “solitary eater”, your decisions will, in and of themselves, do nothing to alter the industry. That said, unless you obtain your food in secret and eat in the closet, you don’t eat alone. We eat as sons and daughters, as families, as communities, as generations, as nations, and increasingly as a globe. We can’t stop our eating from radiating influence even if we want to.
