Genesis 1: 29-31
29Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you;

30and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food–“; and it was so.

31God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

Before sin and death, mankind and all animals were vegetarian. We had plants to eat and that’s it before The Fall. I wonder if that means vegetarianism is a superior eating choice than non or if our bodies (now being sinful) can only be healthy by eating death (as part of our curse maybe?).

I find it interesting that there would be so many different consequences to The Fall, and that the possibility of meat-eating is one of them.
