I also agree that it was Cain's HEART that made God upset. You'll also notice that God gave him the chance to try again and he still had a bad attitude.
I believe the first animal killing in the bible was done by God when he made skins for Adam and Eve to wear.
Not only did Cain not bring the best--the first would've been some of his harvest of course but included the whole of the best plants foods--roots and all as my pastor had explained once a long time ago. As an animal offerring would've taken the best from the herd thus ending that herds bloodline also. But of course--It all does go back to his heart. It wasn't good.
Remember Danny, Meschach and friends only ate veggies and water I think to grow strong and did not eat meat and wine. Something along those lines but became stronger than the king's men...
I don't think God cares whether or not you are veggie but cares about the thanks in your heart for the provisions He has provided you.
