    I'm not generally a fan of veggie ready meal/ processed stuff but I had a Gregg's vegan sausage roll today and it was very tasty. If a bit disturbingly meaty. And probably not great if eating less meat for health reasons. But tasty. 
    Piers Moron will be very upset...




    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

    I found out yesterday that Piers Morgan is involved with the PR company that Greggs uses.

    Tasty food and it upsets Piers. I think that's what is known as a win win.

    Why is it anyone else's business why someone chooses to stop eating meat ?  
    It isn't, unless they won't shut the fuck up about it, then it's unavoidably EVERYONE'S business. 

    Put it this way, if I have never had a meal with someone or been in the same room as them while they're eating, then the only way I would know whether they are vegetarian or vegan is because they've told me they are. 

    You can't impose your opinion on the entire world then tell people it's none of their business if they disagree with it. 
    In my experience---as a meat eater who is married to a vegan---it is meat eaters who are far more likely to be unable to shut the fuck up when it comes to what people have chosen to eat. Almost entirely without fail, to be honest.

    How would they know then?

    In my case they know because they hear me ask questions about whether soup is vegetarian, or see that I've chosen the vegetarian option, or see me check the ingredients on food packaging. Then they start asking questions.

    How is it imposition if you're not being forced to agree or comply?

    This thread is how you get cannibalism.
    The main issue is with people who won't shut the fuck up about cannibalism.

    Always kill before cooking.

    I don't care and I don't feel imposed upon, my point is simply that if I haven't actually dined with or fed someone then I won't have asked them whether they're vegetarian, and yet somehow we all seem to know who is and who isn't among our fairly casual acquaintances. 

    I don't really eat meat, but I don't need a word for that any more than I need a word for not eating peanut butter.

    Talking about food and drink is one of the universal pastimes. Everywhere on the planet people talk about food---of course you're going to hear about people with dietary requirements/preferences.

    I've also been studying this thread pretty intently - I'd class myself as an animal lover, but have increasingly struggled with (my personal) hypocrisy of eating meat without really caring about the animal that's been killed so that I can eat it.

    I don't mean that as a criticism of anyone else that's an animal lover and meat-eater, it's my own view of myself.

    I did go veggie for about six years, but that was about 25 years ago, and have increasingly thought about it recently. It's something that I'm going to attempt again in spite of not liking much of the stuff that makes up a vegetarian diet. I'm sure that there are even better options than there were 25 years ago though.

    25 even 30 years ago I had at least a weekly trip to Holland and Barrett or a local hippy heath food shop to stock up on veggie food.   Eating out was near on impossible or the inevitable veg lasagne. Now everything could be bought from any supermarket (though i will admit to not having been in a lidl / Aldi for a couple of years, and restaurants have a much wider verity on their menus.

    One of the biggest issues facing the human race is that we don't think enough about what we eat. As countries become more developed and affluent, we eat too much, we waste too much, we produce food too intensely without enough regard to the ecosystems affected by the production.

    Arguably the biggest protagonist in this is meat production.

    Until we get a grip on what and how much we put down our throats, we will continue to be fat, and continue to deplete resources.

    61% of England's adults are obese: that is obscene and within our control for most people. The problem (put simply) is that we don't understand enough about how to nourish ourselves. The responsibility for that ultimately lies with each and every one of us.

    Yes, the food industry pushes crap food at us 24/7, but we aren't babies and we don't have to eat this crap.

    the only redeeming element to going vegetative is that you can still eat chips - with everything!

    I'm pretty sure sugar is at least as big of a culprit for obesity as meat. You can still eat that as a vegan/veggie can't you?

    Some good points there, @Snap - my pet gripe is the sheer amount of food that must be wasted in restaurants.  They always put far too much food on my plate, so that I'm often over-faced, and half of it goes in the bin.

    We often go out for a curry with a couple who cannot bring themselves to leave a crumb of food on the plate, and look at what we're leaving with that "but kids are starving around the world!" look.  

    Time for smaller portions!

    Did anyone bring the petits-fours?

    Then let me de-mystify you: I want smaller portions for smaller prices, not a mountain of food I can't finish.  I generally stop eating when I'm full.

    Well, tonight I made potato, cauliflower and egg curry.  https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1436/cauliflower-egg-and-potato-curry

    Very nice indeed.

    I'm not entirely sure the bedroom air will smell fantastic in the morning, but hey-ho !
