Is anyone Vegan?  If so, did you choose to do it bc of health, animal rights or something else?  I've recently been thinking of it for health benefits.  I just think I'll miss my big juicy burgers sometimes....and pizza....and ice cream....ohhhh I'm just not sure.

I cut back on a lot of meats, but I don't have the will power to cut out dairy, seafood, pork and eggs completely, lol. I grew up eating anything and everything in moderation. I do notice a big difference in the way I feel if I haven't eaten red meat in a while, so I don't eat it often. Going vegan definitely has it's benefits, and a friend of mine told me that if you ever do, to start slow and cut a few things at a time while you find healthy substitutes. I guess it makes it easier (she did it for health reasons). I know a ton of vegans that do it for their beliefs (I live by the PETA headquarters), and they all had a much easier time going vegan, or never have eaten meat in their lives anyway.

Nope and this house would not survive. H as you know can not live on veggies and fruit. Small doses here. We do not eat much red meat at all. Once in a blue moon ill make a steak. We eat mostly turkey, chicken and sometimes pork. No veal of me. I do love fish. Dairy is a big one too. H doesn't eat much of that but K lives on dairy. Hehe

No..I tried once though as I (like you) wanted the health benefits.  I am so a meat eater..but I couldn't kill a fly.  If I ever have to kill my own dinner, I will probably "easily" become a vegan.

I hate bugs and am absolutyely terrified even phobic of some like spiders and centipedes but I believe they have feelings and families and I feel guilty for feeling that way bc its not their fault so I have this thing called a BUGZOOKA and it uses strong air pressure to suck up and capture the bug and hold it securely in a built in container without harming it (it cant get out though) and then when my husband comes home he takes them outside and lets them go. I also like it bc its really long so I dont have to get close to them to get them bc I'm so scared of them. I love my bugzooka, one of my young adult daughters has one too.

It cost me $25 and is worth every penny If anything ever happens to this one I will make sure I have another asap!

PS this pic isnt mine it is from google. but the bugzooka looks like mine

nope, nada, never. I won't knock anyone for doing it, but hellz no for us. between meat and cheese, being borderline anemic I need that big juicy steak. I can't just live on greens that have iron and calcium in them. I need the other stuff that has it too. mmmmm steak. gosh I'm hungry now

I'm not Vegan but I do eat a lot of chicken and fish and very little red meat at all. It's very hard to get all the nutirents your body need going to a full Vegan diet. You have to know what you are doing. I eat yogart, cheese, and Ice cream too.
