False equivalence. I try to minimize harm, and dream and scheme of/for a day when I don't have to eat.
But plants have different survival strategies than big game animals, hence the false equivalence. Most of the plants I eat produce fruit that birds eat, spreading the seeds to far-off lands. I'm happiest when I'm out somewhere where I can toss the seeds of the fruit I eat into some dirt where it might take hold; or maybe it lies dormant for eons...
Comparing eating a plant to eating meat ignores the body of thought that Jains have devoted to the issue of ahimsa, in the course of over 5000 years.
All eating is harmful, but eating plants, especially when the plant itself survives (i.e. don't eat root vegetables because the plant has to be killed), is less harmful than eating a cow or another animal that actively tries to get away when you kill it.
Jains also thought about microscopic creatures long before the microscope; so you should strain water, and not eat after sunset because your food is more likely to have organisms on it that sunlight hasn't killed. Yes it's regrettable that bacteria die by the sunlight; one day we will develop less violent techniques of preserving food, and synthetic meat that doesn't require animal-derived substrate to grow within, and/or we'll figure out how to get energy directly from the sun (as our friends and fellow mortals the plants do; they can teach us).
