Took in a Vegan show today.All the way to the event my kid was filling me in on the aspects of Veganism...animal suffering..your eating their pain...eating dead carcasses...the crap they put in your food , meat ,processed an all.
...the energy released when you follow the food plan..e.t.c ,e.t.c ,the fact that vegans are more authentic, they are more in touch with who they really are , that vegan followers just feel like different people and ofc I was following with interest. 

Started wondering around the show trying all the freebie food and was taken aback.Everything was tasty ,the cheese ,vegan ham,chocolate ,  vegan pizza , cactus water ,perkiers(a sort of sweet ) , granola in soya milk.

Then finally a sort of barbecued pulled pork called Oomph made of soya beans that was totally delicious. So here I am for 7 days going totally vegan ...my kid said I'll feel totally different and I'm a bit excited because another way to give up chocolate a bad addiction of mine.

Also two different people randomly asked us about the vegan food we were buying in the supermarket...so a way to talk to new people who  are very interested..it's all good😁

So just asking anyone else surprised by a new interest that came out of left field?

You do know you got a 100% ultra-biased opinion from one extreme, right?

You should go visit the other extreme and then hear what they have to say and then judge both for yourself before deciding to blindly follow either.

Man, you really need to smoke some ganja and self-reflect a little because you've come off in a such an unpleasant, condescending manner towards everyone in the time that I've seen you on here. Even if you had a point here (or not) it was unsolicited and just makes you look like "that guy."

Rolleyes Nice post to derail the topic just to mention this. What an upstanding fellow you are.


You know what makes forums interesting? When it's not all just an echo-chamber and we can each voice our own opinions on the matter. Funny how the OP didn't seem to mind it and even answered it on his own no problem, nor did I attack his character (see: your post), apart from state my view on the situation he posted about.

Yes dude,  anyone who calls you out for carrying yourself like a dick is trying to create an echo chamber.  What a lovely airtight fallacy to lie to yourself with. The derailment started with you. 

I read his response as telling you to fuck off in the nicest way possible. He can correct me if I'm wrong.

And you're absolutely right, I am letting you know what I think of your character or at least how you come across to me on here.

Whoosh. Right over your head.

Replying to the topic, not disagreeing with the opinion =/= derailment
Actively calling someone out for petty reasons and not the topic at hand, leading to this nonsense tangent = derailment.

Again. Whoosh.

Regardless of what he meant, you're missing the point. He didn't cry about it like you are. If you don't like my posts, ignore me. I couldn't care less what someone like you thinks.
(And I'm done replying to you and further derailing this thread.)

Note that the thread topic was whether we'd ever stumbled upon a new passion through invitation to an event and not a debate on the pros and cons of Veganism. Hence you derailed the thread whether you like it or not.

Well, I should hope he beat me too it, he should be up way before me with the time difference. Club

By "marge" do you mean margarine or something else?  Is margarine allowed over there?  lol  Regardless of what it is, they make pretty much everything you can think of in a vegan variety.

As I said before, you'd be surprised what has animal products.  I have to order some things because my area isn't exactly known for being vegan friendly.

Hi JoTurbo hope the vegan lifestyle is to your liking  Big Grin certainly healthy, im mainly veggie but eat fish now and then. Didn't like soya milk at first-does smell funny but now prefer it especially on cornflakes. Vegan/vegetarian indian food is especially good as long as you make different dishes to complement each other ie a veg curry, a pulse dish,rice,nan, a indian salad,pickles, and you could make a vegan raita. 
Margarine...bleugh I remember a billboard advertising a margarine saying 'only one thing tastes like this' and next to it was an ad for duchams engine oil.... Maybe there are better marges available these days but its butter for me. 
I always keep some quorn products in the freezer-burgers,sausages etc as its convenient when you need to put something together quickly, could be a simple burger/mash/veg or a fry up.
Ebay is good for buying in spices and herbs in larger quantitys than the piddly little pots in the supermarket and works out cheaper. Hope it goes well! Big Grin
