Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
There is no shame in that, plenty of folks have decided not to eat meat or even animal products. Many Rastafari brothers and sisters live strictly ital, which is purely vegan with an emphasis and food consciousness. All food is a gift from God, so we must be conscious of how we eat. Like many priests my own included have said, "Do you eat to live, or live to eat?" In Rastafari, we eat to live, and we want to live good, so we eat good. Many monks and Christians have also felt it good to not eat meat. There is nothing wrong with their example. Like Apostle Paul said, "Therefore, if food makes my brother to stumble, I will eat no meat while the world stands, lest I make my brother to stumble." Further, there are plenty of ethical reasons not to eat meat in the modern world, it is an ecological and moral disaster both how the animals and environments are treated! I say if God gives you the strength, more power to you!
I prefer to go with the Orthodox calendar of seasonal veganism through fasting culture.
