I am a vegetarian, but my mum keeps trying to manipulate me into thinking eating meat is fine.?
When I said "I don't want animals die because of the things I eat." She said "Don't think too complicated, just thought of them as food".
And so on.
Is there any articles I could read that can make me understand my feelings right now or hers? Have you ever feel the same way?

The first author that comes to mind is Dr. Melanie Joy. She has written books but I don't know of any articles she has written. However, she has some videos. Check out the 17 - minute one on this page first.
I think this is an article worth reading

Eating meat is fine though. shes right. It's just up to you if you want it or not. Neither of you is morally superior on this one so just ignore her and dont eat meat if you dont want it.

Just because you don't eat meat doesn't mean you're not killing animals.
Production of the veggies, grains and fruit that you eat kills animals, too. Thousands of small animals, birds, snakes, rabbits, voles, even an occasional fawn, are killed every time big farm equipment goes through the field planting, fertilizing and harvesting the crops that you eat.
The veg diet is not a bloodless diet. These animals are not killed humanely, under the watchful eye of a USDA inspector, but are mashed, slashed, crippled by big, sharp plows and harvesting equipment, left to sufferer and die so you can have your veggies and grains every day.
Then even more are deliberately poisoned (mostly birds and rodents) to keep them out of grain storage bins so you can have your cereal and toast every morning.

How about: "I can't stand the taste, makes me gag. And I will vomit."

Eating meat is fine. You need to eat meat so you can be healthy and live a long life. With out it you won't live long, won't grow right, won't develop right, won't have a healthy brain and worse.

Eating meat IS fine. Being a vegetarian is also fine.
There is more than one way to do things.
No one is going to break or die because you and your mother don't share the same opinion.
