I’m not sure why every animal in the world that is slaughtered for food is not halal. Animals that are “not halal” may be left to die in a slow and bleeding manner while lying in their own feces. The meat in our local stores is not halal, the hamburgers at McDonalds in the States is not halal—just an observation.
While I did not really notice a difference while I ate halal for three years, I notice it now. The other night at dinner, I was sure something was wrong with the meat. I asked several times, “Is anyone else’s meat bad?” They just kept saying, no, and saying, it was fine. To me, it was disgusting and I could not even finish it. I do not know if it is from eating halal for so long or from eating grain-fed meat in Paraguay, but something is definitely different about the meat here.
