Veal = ugh. Veal = legalized animal abuse. Take a look sometime at the cruel and short lives those poor calves live before they're killed for their tender meat. It's so tender because they are locked inside tiny stalls so their muscles don't develop. They're separated from their mothers way too young and bottle fed. It's truly disgusting.
