Re: Dogs eating veggies

That's adorable! I know dogs like veggies because my brother's has been eating away at my garden all summer long. He loves the beans and swiss chard (which hasn't been able to grow because he keeps eating it down to a stub every few weeks). :P

Re: Vegan Fail

I agree, confidence and the ability to hold your ground in an argument comes with time, knowledge, and experience. You are taking a good step by joining an online community. I personally joined 3 different forums about a month ago, and I already feel more secure and confident just knowing that I hav...

Re: Phytochemicals - Vitamins of the Future?

Yes, I think we are just barely scratching the surface on the variety and benefits of different phytochemicals. The substances in different plant foods also interact with each other when a variety of fruits and vegetables are eaten. This reminds me of an article I was reading about research showing ...

Re: Fake fur - your views?

Personally, I don't see anything wrong with fake fur - the faker the better. Think of it as an homage to the animal - celebrating the animal's beauty without having to own it. That makes sense, I've never thought of it that way... I don't like the look of fur coats personally, but I have a jacket t...

Re: Defining Terms

As for Omivore, technically there's nothing wrong with its use here however, the word has conentations which are generally associated with the non-human animal kingdom. For this reason the word is not often used to describe the 'average' diet in the broader community. So although there's nothing wr...

Re: Vegetarian Arrogance

There are always going to be arrogant people, regardless of what group they belong to. So of course there will be arrogant vegans who preach to thier friends, and arrogant meat eaters who join vegan forums in order to start arguments and tell others how superior their viewpoint is. It is interesting...

Re: im back

YAY! Great to see you are a vegan. I had my own struggles about a year into being a vegan and lost my way a bit too. It happens to the best of us. 8)

Re: From omnivore to vegan:The dietary education of Bill Cli

It is great that he is eating a plant based diet, and talking about how he enjoys the food as well. I also like that he originally tried the 'healthier' omnivore diet that most people follow thinking that it will be enough to prevent disease, but that it didn't work, and he only started feeling bett...

Re: Accidentally Ate/bought Whey

I don't see any problem with eating it, because as AndyBa said it was the purchase of the product that supported the animal industry, not whether you finish the box or not. I just had the same thing happen with a box of cereal that contained honey, and I finished the box. Don't beat yourself up for ...

Re: The reason why there is no such thing as a vegan

A vegan is someone who does their very best to eliminate as much animal suffering as possible from their lives. This starts out with eliminating meat, eggs, milk and dairy. It continues with getting rid of gelatin, rennet, leather, suede, and wool. Then it changes how you talk to people. You approa...

Re: Does Anyone Have A Vegan Recipe For

There is a good recipe in Vegan Brunch. It's posted online at yourveganmom dot com (sorry I can't post links yet). Just search in the side bar for lemon poppy seed muffin. As far as sugar goes, I always buy organic which hasn't been whitened (it should be a light golden colour). I didn't know that s...

Re: Questionnaire For Vegans!

1. Almost 3 years 2. Animal suffering that is completely unnecessary in the western world. Also health and environmental benefits. 3. Sometimes; mostly when eating out or at another persons house, because I don't like to be rude or quiz people about what is in their food. Also, living with an omni w...

Re: Ethical Vegan, Perhaps

Are you saying that you do eat meat or that just your partner does? Cause if you do then you should not call yourself a vegetarian because it's confusing to other people. I think there are enough confusing terms and distinctions already, so when people mislabel themselves it just makes us look like ...

Re: Food Libel

Yes it is pretty messed up! I know there have been cases in the US and the UK, but I'm not sure about anywhere else. I just watched the movie McLibel about the libel case against two activists in the UK; it's a really interesting film. The case had some positive impact though because even though the...
