I doubt there is a European, living or dead, that can out-eat me at pizza...

I turned veggie when I was 8. I come from a long line of animal-lovers and, seriously, I'm really, really soppy about 'em. So it was not hard for me and I've never been tempted to eat meat. I also don't eat gelatine, shellac, cochineal, rennet, etc. And I don't eat eggs or drink milk, but that's really because I find them disgusting; but I'm not vegan because I will sometimes eat things which contain eggs or milk... I genuinely prefer soya, though. Smile

So, yes, I have no problems. The only thing I really, really miss is jelly sweets. I have so much respect for my dear, late grandmother who was also veggie from childhood (the 1930s!) and therefore found her options pretty limited. Then when the meat substitutes came along, she hated them all anyway heh. Other members of my family do eat meat, but not cheap meat, they buy organic - they don't think they have some Divine Right to Meat. I had a housemate once who I liked a lot but her attitude stunk: she bought the most appalling, cheap meat in full knowledge of the miserable little existence that creature had had but her outlook was, 'I can't afford organic'. In my opinion, she couldn't afford meat but I kept this, urr, beef to myself...

I think you have to want to do it - not want to want to! - or it will never work. I know this because I don't want to stop smoking - I just want to want to stop smoking - therefore I smoke.

I have never eaten a steak. They look and smell gross, though! I have also never had a doner kebab - that one I do regret. A doner kebab, a fight and a Silk Cut superking - then you'd have me jealous.

Why would I need steaks when I've got TVP?! It's a delicious product of soya beans, cotton seeds, wheat and oats and when you soak it in water it all swells up and you'd never miss mince when you have TVP! Very Happy

OMG! Linda McCartney's Toad in the Hole is amazing! The sausages taste so real I had to carefully read the box afterwards to make sure.

A product called Quorn is better than TVP, but I use both. Quorn is quicker than soya as its frozen and doesnt need preparation. The filets are great for making curry with and my family often cant tell the difference. They ask "is it quorn or chicken".

I wish I could try that. There's such limited products types where I live. Its not like the UK and its hard to get a decent vegetarian meal in restaurants.

Would any vegetarians here start eating the 'test tube' burgers?

I rarely eat meat because of the ethics of it but I'm very excited about these developments and would happily include it into my diet.

Preparing a chicken stir-fry at the moment, marinade almost done.

Thinking of all you vegetarians at this point in time.

Sounds (and looks) revolting yuk

I rarely eat meat because of the ethics of it but I'm very excited about these developments and would happily include it into my diet.

I tend to eat free-range chicken now.  The eggs I buy now are very much free range (friend has chickens on her lifestyle block Very Happy ) and the beef we are currently eating spent it's days on another friend's lifestyle block before arriving in my freezer.  I rarely eat pork, but there's a free range company that provides pork http://www.rarebreeds.co.nz/soggybottom5.html

Sounds lovely Little tongue man  I do like veggie meals but I also like my meat too Little tongue man
