It sounds strange, coming from a man who calls himself a vegetarian of sorts. But believe it when he says it:
“The only meat I’m eating is from animals I’ve killed myself.”
The young Facebook founder made this announcement on his page in Facebook (obviously), and since then, countless reactions from friends and fans had continuously filled his pages. The reactions are mixed, with some expressing support while others virtually shaking their heads on a subject that may be just part of his zany ideas.
Considering the strange diet plan, Zuckerberg is saying that this is his way of learning how to appreciate food better. He has even learned a few good ideas about sustainable farming and how to raise farm animals. Sure, he does not cut up the carcass but he does plunge the first knife.
As a result, he admits that he is eating healthier now. He also gets to try different dishes that use animal parts that you would not normally see. There is that broth that uses chicken feet, and a couple of other recipes that used the heart and liver.
This experience has left him with a better appreciation about the food he eats every day. While the idea has spread like wildfire (compare Facebook), many of his friends are interested in it. He also got the attention, not to mention revulsion, from vegetarians to meat-lovers alike.
So what is next on his to-do list? Zuckerberg says he is interested in hunting. If that happens, expect him to post some antlers on his page in the near future.
