As I've mentioned before, I've considered switching to a less meat-centric diet, but it's such a huge change in life style that I usually give up just passing a steak house. (When does that stop smelling good? Bacon?)

So, when you gave up meat, was it all at once or did you phase it out slowly? Do you use meat substitutes or do you prefer your meals to be honestly vegetable? What are your favorite cookbooks/blogs?

Thanks. a-hard-days-night-ringo-9


well, best of luck to you I bet giving up bacon is hard anyway paul-mccartney   a-hard-days-night-ringo-9:)  Ringo was a vegaterian :D

Wen A went to Paul's concert in August last yeer, they were givng out Glass Walls, so A watched it and was a bit disturbed by it, so because of tht, A Became a Vegitarian. Ever since A watched that, the Tast of meat is jus bad, A can't swallow it 'cause A'll prolly get sick, and tha smell is also real bad.

Sometimes I want to eat meat, but I just can't imagine what it would taste like and how not only would I react, but my body as well.

I have a theory that most vegetarians are guided by queasiness about as much as a moral objection, although it may not start out that way. After a few years of not not eating meat it just becomes a bit weird to even think about doing it.

(Vegetarian for 22 years and counting.)

I think you could be right, Joe. There's no way I even want to prepare meat for myself. It squicks me out handling raw meat, and it always has.

Both my parents were vegetarians for a few years, until I was born. I'm a part-vegetarian to help me eat healthier, so I'mgiving up on meat with lots of fat or oil, like bacon or steak or something.

Who knew we had a vegetarian/veganism thread? I'm enjoying going through the old topics.

As this is on topic, I'm going to try and go fully vegan. Days when I have eaten nothing but fruits, veg and nuts/seeds I've felt much better. Less tired, better mood, I sleep better, better concentration... So I'm going to give it a try, and see how it goes. I think the only problem I might have is with baked goods. I don't each them that often, but I don't fancy using egg substitutes much.

We'll see. I hope I can do this.

Let us know how you do with this new resolution, fabfouremily. I'm anxious to know if you feel better, or have more energy, or what. Speaking of the Fab Four, you may know this, but all of the Beatles embraced vegetarianism at some point... except John. I'm not sure why I find that interesting, but I do. My wife and I are I guess what you call "flexitarians"... we're mostly vegetarian. But to go all way, and become vegan is quite the commitment! I'd like to know how it goes for you. :)

Thanks, yes I'll let you know. I've been doing the 80/10/10 diet (which is very definitely vegan) on and off for a while, and as long as you make sure you are getting enough calories and nutrients, the benefits are quite unbelievable. I'll keep you informed :)

Best of Luck too you!  That's awesome!  As you know I'm a vegetarian (over 5 years now) and I was a vegan before that for about half a year.  I went into it too fast because I was still eating meat before that.  Since you are already a vegetarian I bet you will have a much easier time, especially if you are already practicing it.

I aspire to do it again, my only downfall is the CHEESE.  I love that stuff way too much.  It's pretty much the only dairy I eat.  I drink soy or almond milk for cereal and cooking etc, and I use soy creamer in my coffee.  So cheese a couple of times a week is the only thing really, except little things here and there.  Once they invent a vegan cheese that doesn't taste like shit I will go for it again.a-hard-days-night-george-10

 

My mom and auntie just went vegetarian!  I'm so proud, I didn't even force anything on them, they just came to it on their own (like my husband did).  I lectured them about taking iron supplements today because my mom had a dizzy spell at work.  I became deficient at one point and I take a low dose every day.  Do you take anything?  I also have B12 supplements daily.  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Thanks, LHL :) I started my fruit/veg-based diet on Monday, and though I can't say I feel drastically different just yet, I certainly feel better just knowing that good things should be happenning. I guess it'll take time. I've cut out all dairy and, because I didn't have much of it anyway, it's no problem at all.

Do you think you could try going vegan again, since you've been veggie for some time? 

Oh, that's good. My sister has started eating a lot more veg meals, too. She can't resist a kebab, though, my sister. No one even knows for sure what meat that is... ahdn_paul_01

I don't take any supplements. I just don't see the need, unless you're doing all else you can to give your body the things it needs, and you're still lacking. I feed myself properly, so I'm doing fine without them.

I think I eat properly for the most part, but I like to be safe.

That probably sounded a bit rude. It's just I go to the doctors for a check up on whether I'm lacking anything every 6 months, and I'm doing well.

I've just put my name down for one of those doner cards. So when I'm dead, they'll turn me into a kebab.

^ Oh, what a lovely thought. Actually, I think I can remember what they taste like, and it wouldn't surprise me if there was dead flesh in there somewhere a-hard-days-night-paul-3

I totally used this exact phrase in the car tonight!  We were coming back from the vet with some VERY good news about our kitty!
