Last year was my first year abstaining from red meat for the entire summer. With the temperature reaching 29° C today and forecasted to remain above 20° for the foreseeable future, I think it’s time I start my second round.
The way I see it, a strict interpretation of D&C 89:12–13 is like a Mormon version of Lent. I actually don’t mind it; although it can be a hassle for others who like to cook roasts or use ground meat in meals.
One of the benefits is I don’t have a greasy aftertaste in my mouth after the ward Pioneer Picnic.
