I stopped eating meat for 3 months because I don't like animal cruelty, but I was craving for a burger (with actual meat, not tofu burger) and then I stopped at Five Guys after work and ate me a burger. I don't like animal cruelty, but burger with meat is so tasty and I prefer it over tofu burger. I don't know...

Why not buy from a farmer locally?

I don't like animal cruelty either. But I don't see eating animals as a cruelty, it's what we're meant to do. Humans are omnivores. You can buy meat from sources that aren't cruel to animals.

This is what I was going to say too.

Why don't you buy meat from a local farm where you know how the animals are treated?

Also, kidney bean patties are far superior to tofu patties.

I've been vegetarian for over 20 years and there is no way I would eat a tofu burger. There are MUCH better vegetarian options.

Why not be vegetarian most of the time but when you feel the craving for meat buy more ethically raised and slaughtered meat?

edit to add: tvp based burgers are much closer in texture to beef that might satisfy the craving.
