any vegans out there?
hi sloane. if one is trying to be purist it makes less and less sense.I didn't eat meat; then dairy for quite a while. I wore leather boots though. Footwear was really problematic.
it can be totally delicious. masses of different types of veg. beans. nuts. fruit.Not myself, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food when visiting vegan friends in the US last year. But then LA is probably one of the world's best places outside south Asia to go vegan?
Hope so - going vegetarian (let alone vegan) would be easier if there were more restaurants about that did it well.it can be totally delicious. masses of different types of veg. beans. nuts. fruit.
definitely going to become much more common.
heh heh. 95% of the tofu one can buy is sh*t. yellow and spongey. gotta agree with you. but the fresh stuff that comes floating in brine (?) (like the fancy mozzarella is packaged) that can be really delicious.I'm very very glad I never have to eat a dried tofu chunk ever again though; that shit is worse than dog food. We called it "gak".
the B12 in marmite is added - it's not naturally occurring.Not a problem as long as you like Marmite.
Makes sense. Not only good to eat, useful for packaging too.I'm not quite sure why I'm posting in this thread as I'm neither vegetarian nor vegan and have no interest in becoming either, but it's interesting that Marmite should come up as I have a hunch that fungi could become more and more important as a global food source in the coming century. Does our resident techno-utopian HMGovt have an opinion on this?
Edit: still, like most people, I could and arguably should try to eat a bit less meat.
an interesting point certainly mr tea. but we're talking about man's early evolution here though.But is Marmite "naturally occurring" full stop? And how about tofu? And Quorn? And soy milk? And...
A quick google suggests Marmite is fully vegan, since the B12 is itself derived from a yeast source. (So it's not plant-derived, but it's not animal-derived either.)
hm! mental confusion!"A vitamin B12 deficiency is a serious disorder and indications of a deficiency of vitamin B12, when they do reach a stage where they have shown up, can be quite severe. Fatigue, paleness, anorexia, mental confusion, delusions, paranoia, weight loss, respiratory problems, etc. are just some indications that a person may have a B12-deficiency."
