Aside Hayley I've not heard any of you talking about it.

I recently decided to give up meat again, for my own reasons, and thus far it's been okay but I can see Quorn foods getting a bit boring. Any one care to share any good recipes or even recipe websites? Also, any one care to share the stuff that cannot be eaten, because I was sad to see I couldn't drink Crushem earlier. :ton:

This is NOT an attempt at a meat eaters vs non meat eaters thread.

Also, vitamins. I picked up a "vegetarian multi vit" from the supermarket for a quick fix before I get paid and can afford to go to an actual vitamin shop. Anyone any recomendations as to what to take?

Thanks!!

Did you know that "vegetarian" doesn't originate from the word "vegetable"? People believe it originates from the word Latin word "vegetus", meaning lively or vigorous.

Anyway, I'm not a vegetarian. I like a good bit o' dead cow or pig to chew on :tmb:

Woooo I'm veggie :D all the way! Love ma nuts and berries and leaves.

*Recipes, umm..I tend to just have whatever my parents are having, but I get subtitutes. Quorn fillets in wraps though :O OMG. NOM! Also, I like the chicken style pieces. You can have some kind of stir fry with them. NOM. My absolute fave is the chicken tikka strips you can get. I love them so much :| and they just have to have 'chicken-style' in the names don't they? :pi:

Is that veganism?

It is but I prefer to just call myself a herbivore, makes me happy :p

Edit: Just to add fuel to the Carnivore vs. Herbivore war, how abouts some scientific facts bitches :ohn:

Are human beings anatomically more similar to natural carnivores or to natural herbivores? Let’s find out….

Intestinal tract length. Carnivorous animals have intestinal tracts that are 3-6x their body length, while herbivores have intestinal tracts 10-12x their body length. Human beings have the same intestinal tract ratio as herbivores.
Stomach acidity. Carnivores’ stomachs are 20x more acidic than the stomachs of herbivores. Human stomach acidity matches that of herbivores.
Saliva. The saliva of carnivores is acidic. The saliva of herbivores is alkaline, which helps pre-digest plant foods. Human saliva is alkaline.
Shape of intestines. Carnivore bowels are smooth, shaped like a pipe, so meat passes through quickly — they don’t have bumps or pockets. Herbivore bowels are bumpy and pouch-like with lots of pockets, like a windy mountain road, so plant foods pass through slowly for optimal nutrient absorption. Human bowels have the same characteristics as those of herbivores.
Fiber. Carnivores don’t require fiber to help move food through their short and smooth digestive tracts. Herbivores require dietary fiber to move food through their long and bumpy digestive tracts, to prevent the bowels from becoming clogged with rotting food. Humans have the same requirement as herbivores.
Cholesterol. Cholesterol is not a problem for a carnivore’s digestive system. A carnivore such as a cat can handle a high-cholesterol diet without negative health consequences. A human cannot. Humans have zero dietary need for cholesterol because our bodies manufacture all we need. Cholesterol is only found in animal foods, never in plant foods. A plant-based diet is by definition cholesterol-free.
Claws and teeth. Carnivores have claws, sharp front teeth capable of subduing prey, and no flat molars for chewing. Herbivores have no claws or sharp front teeth capable of subduing prey, but they have flat molars for chewing. Humans have the same characteristics as herbivores.
But aren’t humans anatomically suited to be omnivores?

Nope. We don’t anatomically match up with omnivorous animals anymore than we do with carnivorous ones. Omnivores are more similar to carnivores than they are to herbivores. For a more detailed summary table that compares the properties of carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores side by side, see this page:
Comparative Anatomy & Taxonomy

The link above also debunks the opportunistic feeder theory, which states that because humans can eat like omnivores, that we must therefore be omnivores. And this is of course false because mere behavior doesn’t indicate suitability. There are plenty of things we can do as a species that would threaten our survival if we all considered them suitable default behavior, such as shooting each other, lobbing hand grenades, or sending spam.

I didn't find it hard, I just keep looking at the back of packets to check there was no dairy, animal gelatin or meat content. Plus I bought Veganism for Dummies which helped a ton. It tells you guideline daily amounts for each nutrient you need to eat it in a day and where to get them from, I'd highly recommend it if you want to learn more about it. I love this diet!

Ohhh right. Well then it's only dairy things I would have to start looking for as well. I bought soya milk for a while, but my parents drunk it then complained it was horrible, when I liked it? I never understood the logic behind them doing that xD. Thanks I'll take a note of that for the future! I'll probably wait until I move out, then I will be able to decide what I buy. It's just, there's the whole 'vegan shoes' etc thingy. I'm not keen on that part of the lifestyle. I'm just more about the food side. I don't think I could really buy a non-leather saddle and bridle JUST to ride my horse.

That's good you decided to give it another go. I've been vegetarian since I was 11 and only recently have I tried to actually get into cooking properly. I've been making a lot of spinach dishes latley.

I'm a veggie!! I have been a vegetatian for just over a year (14 months) and I did it once before for 7 months. When I stopped after the 7 months and started eating meat again it tasted so disgusting and just the thought of it was enough to not make me touch it. I never really liked meat to begin with. It's a lifestyle that I intend to keep. I love it, more fruits and veggies for me. :D

I have never heard of Quorn before... not sure if it is sold in Canada. We have a brand called Yves here that has some fake versions of stuff... but I know I have to be careful with that brand because they sometimes sneak animal products into their own products. Which makes it hard because here I am eating something that I think is helping and it doesn't.

One day I think I would like to move towards veganism... But I think I would have to slowly transition myself into that lifestyle and definately research it a lot more.

Moral and scientific reasons. Number one, I don't believe it is our right to take any living creatures life, be it human or animal.

But anthropologically speaking, meat made us human. It was essential in evolution, more precisely in brain growth.
Plus our nearest relatives (anthropoid primates like chimpanzees) are ominivores and even hunt in packs.

To me it sounds more like leftovers from when plants made up a large proportion of our diet. We eventually developed into into meat, but we had weapons, so claws and such weren't really needed. Hell, vegetables/plants were a large part of the diet until a few hundred years ago, really, so it's not hard to see why that would stay.

I don't think its right for me to eat meat when I love animals so much. I became vegetarian when I was 7 when I was at a petting zoo and eating a bacon sarnie. I asked what bacon was and my mum told me. So I asked if she meant pigs like the ones I'd just seen and she said yes, so I told her I would never eat meat again and I didn't :p I researched it properly at a later age and realised my 7 year old self had made a wise decision ^.^

It may have been vital to our physical development when we weren't intelligent enough to make any alternative decisions but now we have the knowledge that we can get all the nutrients that meat contains from vegetables.

Biologically we are designed like herbivores, there is no doubt about that unless you fancy just ignoring the scientific evidence.

Animals don't have the consciousness/intelligence we do, to know it's morally wrong to take a life.

2.)Animals don't have the consciousness/intelligence we do, to know it's morally wrong to take a life.

1.)Maybe we were from the start, but humanity as a race has changed since its creation. The way we live is changing rapidly, so it could be that we start to develop more traits evident of becoming omnivorous. As it stands, we were eating a main diet of vegetables for a long time, so our bodies would have obviously begun with the traits of herbivores. Evolution takes one hell of a long time, so I guess it's an argument that can't be settled for, well, ages.

2.) That's not what I was asking, really. It's related to what I was asking, but not answering it directly.

but I can see Quorn foods getting a bit boring. Quarn verses meat, which is the frankenstien food :mis:

Quarn..... Its a Mycoprotein, means protein from fungi. It can be used as part of any meal, particularly vegetarian. The main mycoprotein on sale in Europe and the USA is called Quorn. It was originally developed as a food source to combat food shortages.

A fungus called Fusarium venenatum is the main source of mycoprotein. The fungus is grown in vats using glucose syrup as food. This Fusarium sp. respires aerobically, so for it to grow at an optimum rate, it is supplied with oxygen. To make protein, nitrogen (in the form of ammonia) is added, and vitamins and minerals are needed to support growth. The vat is kept at a constant temperature, also optimized for growth; The fungus can double its mass every five hours.

The fermentation vat is filled with the growth medium, and then inoculated with the mould. When the desired amount of mycoprotein has been created, the growth medium is drawn off from a tap at the bottom of the fermenter. The mycoprotein is separated and purified. It is a pale yellow solid with a faint taste of mushrooms. Different flavours and tastes can be added to the mycoprotein to add variety.

Meat..... Tasty :D

I wasn't so sure fish was also something vegs were against. Tonight I was planning on getting some diced crab meat for my salads since I really enjoy how it blends in. Usually there's a good deal of proteins I could have from it which I couldn't get from other foods.

I'm also wondering what's the substitute you use for milk when it comes to calcium?

I chose to be a vegetarian after I watched this video on slaughter houses... All I could do was cry afterwards and then there was a 30 day vegetarian challenge, so I did it and just kept going for the 7 months. Then I started to slowly eat meat again after accidently eating tuna one day. I found my taste for meat started to change... I don't know about anyone else, but has anyone else gone vegetarian then tried meat again and hated it? That's what happened to me. Then I remembered why I went vegetarian the first time and started to research it properly and I'm 14 months with being a veggie. :) I don't want to eat something that has every right to live, that when it did lived it was treated inhumanely. I love animals and I don't want to eat them.

Then I remembered why I went vegetarian the first time and started to research it properly and I'm 14 months with being a veggie. :) I don't want to eat something that has every right to live, that when it did lived it was treated inhumanely. I love animals and I don't want to eat them.

I didn't go back but my step mum fed me meat on purpose once and I threw up xD Its too rich for me now xxxxx

Yeah, I think it's because our bodies aren't designed to digest meat and then we go off of it your body goes back to the way it should be. Then we eat it and it's so hard on our body's. I found my stomach would churn a lot.

I eat meat, but I love vegetables way more. If I had to choose, vegetables all around! :cln: I didn't eat meat in the beginning of High school, I don't know why. I never considered myself as a vegetarian, I just didn't feel like eating it. I am extremely picky when it comes to meat now, because I am not fond of the taste so much. If I eat too much of any sort of meat, I feel like throwing up - taste is good at the beginning, I like it, but after a while I can't eat it anymore. I guess my body is not used to it. :D

I ate all sorts of meat when I was little though, so I don't know what changed during the "growing up" part. I freakin' LOVE vegetables though. I can eat them everyday, all the time, 24/7, ALL of them. <3

Thinking about veganism... Someone once brought up a good point to me. Being a vegan you eat no animal products at all. But, if you think about it, plants do not produce fruit/vegetables without being pollinated first. While pollination can be done by the wind, a vast portion of pollination is done by other organisms (insects), so in reality, plants that are pollinated by organisms are animal by products?

I never seem to get the knack of cooking. I used to be a vegan, too, but because I have absolutely no friends that are vegetarian, and I'm a lousy cook, I've fallen off the vegan wagon. There aren't vegetarian restaurants any were near me.

I'm really skeptical about what the government allows in our food, and I believe the best way to personally control that is to eat vegetarian. I kinda feel guilty that I gave up on it. I DO like the taste of a good rib eye though.

The variety of a vegetarian diet far outnumbers the variety of meats.

I've just come across your post, and as a former vegetarian and now vegan who goes through blood tests every year with exceptional results (much better than when I used to eat meat and much better than my relatives who eat meat), I can attest you that your doctor is at least mistaken...

Perhaps, if you have anaemia you should eat nuts, dark leafy vegetables (as xXhayleyroxXx has said) and also beans...oh, and popcorn! Popcorn is a great source of iron and fibers :D And make sure to drink orange juice - the Vitamin C helps the body to absorb the Iron from its sources. By the way, if your body lacks vitamin C, it won't help an anaemia case even if you take iron tablets.

Popcorn is a great source of iron and fibers :D And make sure to drink orange juice - the Vitamin C helps the body to absorb the Iron from its sources. By the way, if your body lacks vitamin C, it won't help an anaemia case even if you take iron tablets.
My friend was told to start eating meat again when she fell pregnant.

I literally couldn't eat another drop of meat, pregnant or not. So my Doctor will be told where to go. ;)

I tried being vegetarian again (I was a vegetarian until I was about seven years old), but I don't have the willpower to do so :o But I am trying to replace the meat in my diet with supplements :)

I'm not a vegetarian; I really am an omnivore; I just eat about everything; really everything; ; for the midday meals; I actually mostly cook without meat;
and I have just made some very fresh , soup. with a lot of vegetables in it; paprika; onions, celery ( if it is written right ) , carrots, tomatos, fennel, aubergine ( I'm lacking the right English word for it ; but it is a purple vegetable; dark purple; and I've put some abc pasta in it :D
a dish I really like to make 2 is an onion stoved in a pan, tomatoes and paprikas added , then mushrooms , and then an egg ; :D or two eggs


btw ; something I was wondering about right now; if you are vegi ;, how about fish? does it fall under the category of meat; or is fish something apart?

Vegetarians-dont eat anything that comes from the inside of living things with central nervous system. This includes fishies.

Pescitarians-Eat fish.
