People can eat what they want IMO. It just gets iffy if they are trying to 'convert' others by taking a 'holier than thou' stance. Also everyBODY
I love meat, I don't eat it too often but I love it, I have eaten it raw because it is so good. Sometimes my body NEEDS meat after a few days
However I am allergic against Almonds, if I eat just one, I end up with the worst cramps in my guts. So all this Almond milk stuff would really harm
me. I am also allergic to fresh vegetables [nothing bad but I get an incredibly itchy nose and runny eyes]. I'd probably die on a vegan diet. [mostly
from boredom probably but also because of allergies]
I can just about understand Vegetarians. I really can, I love animals but I also know that humans are omnivores.
We have not magically changed [as someone here said "that was in the past"]. I strongly believe that you can eat animals if they had a good life and
a humane death [I try to buy only free-range], after all that is what nature is all about.
Veganism is alien to me. If you are ill and can't eat anything derived from animals at all, then that is one thing [even though you'd be speaking in
'fitness' terms of a complete failure of nature]. I noticed that "most" vegans are usually western middle-class people who do it because they are
bored or attention seeking though. Usually people with no real actual problems in their life [food-wise speaking]. I can't see any starving person
declining any real food and asking for a vegan diet instead...
If you grew up in a poor family where food was scarce, where a good peace of meat would have been a treat you see veganism as a complete folly and you
appreciate the goodness of meat or cheese or milk or anything of actual value to your body.
I know as a [former] food scientist that fresh milk or cheese or a fresh peace of meat are far healthier [in moderation] than ANYTHING processed, and
that includes especially any chemical mix that calls itself cheese when it isn't.
If it has more than one ingredient, you know it's not what Nature intended you to eat. Vegan or not.
