    Re: Food past its sell by date

    Sell by and use by dates are obviously sensibly there to prevent food poisoning, and also to protect us from unscrupulous retailers who might otherwise be prepared to sell us rotting food. I think...
  2. Re: Anyone know anything about the benefits system?

    .... and don't give up. Appeal, make a nuisance of yourself, contact your MP. Don't accept anything you are told. And DO try the CAB route - they will tell you as it is.

    Re: Too much protein

    Very informative, thank you. My attitude to all nutrients is that the body is a finely tuned machine that nevertheless can cope reasonably flexibly with short term excesses or insufficiency of...

    Poll: Re: Going vegan - was it easy for you?

    Thank you. Much as expected. I have made the traditional journey from the meat-and-two-veg upbringing to vegetarianism to veganism. Over a life time. I have found it an easy and natural process, a...

    Re: The human appendix

    Same here, very good article. I have to admit that, having parted company with mine at the age of 9, I had always accepted what I was told then - that it was a left over from an earlier stage of...
  7. Sticky: Re: "If you want to read only one article about B12, read this one"

    Perhaps give idiot examples for the less receptive (such as me;)) as to what the daily requirements are, e.g. xx millilitres of a B12 enhanced soya milk will provide xx% of your daily requirements,...

    Can't say that I've noticed for myself, but there again sleep patterns are controlled by so many things - food, drink, work patterns, family demands, whatever worries are cooking at that time, the...

    Re: Aphids vs Fleas

    I understand. I think that if your house plants are covered then there is not much you can do to get rid of the aphids without killing them (the aphids) in some diabolical manner, and then using...

    Re: Aphids vs Fleas

    Hello Thyme; not a difficult question, for me at least. I grow my own and have a lovely shrub and flower garden too. I decided a long time ago that the use of anything that killed anything was not...

    Poll: Re: Can you be vegan without also being pro-life?

    Unquestionably yes - for me, anyway. But not just as a matter of convenience. I have inherited a genetic condition that killed my father at 43 and his mother at 36. Fortunately, with advances in...

    In my humble opinion there is one, and only one justifiable reason to interfere in the lives of wild animals, and that is to save endangered species from extinction by 'protecting' them in whatever...

    Well thank you very much .... had to include the steam to prove it was 'live' - in a strictly non-animal sense, of course;)

    Re: How do you view vegetarians?

    There was a programme on 'How do they do it?' on one of the Sky channels the other night, probably a repeat, about mass egg production. I feel that you would only...

  18. Re: Respecting environmentally conscious meat eaters in the vegan/non-vegan foru

    Yes, thank you. Seems a simple enough issue, for me at least. It doesn't matter how it died, it is off limits. And would be too if I was an omnivore as it would no doubt be contaminated. Plus, I...

  20. Re: Respecting environmentally conscious meat eaters in the vegan/non-vegan foru

    I was discussing this very thing with my wife today. It depends how into 'labels' you are. Labels don't do a lot for me - life is not black and white. However, to identify yourself with a group of...

    I never really used to drink dairy milk anyway, so I have not had to find a replacement as such - it has been more an issue of remembering to drink a large glass of soya milk to get the B12. I find...

    Re: What did you eat today? (13)

    Too much, it seems, as my bid to lose a pound a week has come unstuck. I must learn that all though I am no longer eating anything naughty I can't simply eat as much as I want!
  24. Re: Have you ever eaten meat in your dreams since going vegan?

    Can't say I remember any of my dreams having featured eating or drinking. Those that might have done are more likely to have involved ME being the menu, which, actually, is why I am up at 2.40 am...

    I suppose you could, initially at least, disguise the veg with sauces, seasoning etc, as suggested. Or perhaps try different, more flavoursome varieties. Take lettuce, for example; I find the Cos and...
