With what I've heard about Forks Over Knives (will watch when I can), the western diet causes pretty much all heart, cholesterol, blood pressure, etc issues, so I may try something vegan ish, but I'll still eat meat and such, just not solely

Though the only animal products I eat daily are the ham on my lunch sandwich, milk at supper, and a serving of a meat for dinner
I eat a TON of apples and fiber cereal

I was just reading about that movie tonight. Have you heard of Get Vegucated?

Nothing about it yet
I just heard about a lot of this recently, and didn't pay as much attention earlier because of how healthy we already eat

Let me throw down a quick observation. Vegan diet can be very delish, however best to try at a Vegan restaurant or w an experienced cook.

Is it fair to vote yes but not be a vegan?

Yes, as long as you have some good vegetarian recipes. :)

Just considering it. :)

We watched the documentary Get Vegucated. It was eye opening. Then coincidentally, my dad sent me the book Eat to Live.

No, I'm not but my son went vegan a year ago. I feel bad when he comes over because the only vegan food I ever have for him are vegan TV dinners :-)
I've even given up buying him gifts because there are materials (leather, etc) he won't use.

I've learned going vegan is a real commitment.

Yes, it seems hard and time consuming. That's why I was wondering if others were successful with it.

I am one and I feel much healthier than I did before. I live with a great cook though. Everything he naked tastes delicious as long as there are no mushrooms.

How do you eat enough? I can't figure that part out. Seems like a lot of beans :/

Praetorianus Fair enough.

What does a vegan eat? Do you wear leather? Can you eat eggs? I would feel so deprived.

10/14/13 6:43 pm

No, vegans don't do any of that. Seems a little extreme. I could live on eggs.

10/14/13 6:43 pm

Actually, there is a huge variety. I love beans so I eat a lot if them. There is Vegan pizza, salads, vegetable stews, vegan cheesecake, vegan hot dogs, and many many more choices. I eat plenty of great food. Sometimes too much. :)

What is vegan cheesecake. Why eat a fake cheesecake at all?

TierasPet
10/14/13 7:02 pm

It tastes like real cheesecake and if you have a sweet tooth, it's a great desert.

Tiera what is it made of. Whats inside a vegan hot dog.

A vegan hot dog is soy meat made into a hit dog shape. I don't know exactly what is in Vegan cheesecake, I just know it is vegan and very tasty.

Yup. I'm almost the opposite of a vegan. Sometimes, when I order meat, I also mention to hold the veggies/sides. And I like the KFC double down, replace bread with meat. Am not on Atkins or so however.

Abstinence from any type of animal consumption should be considered self mutilation.
