162. I realize DU is a progressive board,
Edited on Sun Dec-23-07 03:24 PM by CrispyQGirl
but you'll never be able to have a reasoned discussion on this topic. I've been here since '04 & every time someone posts a similar thread as yours, it gets mean, nasty & hostile. People will give up their SUVs before they give up their meat.

I've been vegetarian since '86, my husband since '72, we've been vegan since '00. ;) We both work out regularly doing cardio & weight lifting - no weakling vegans here! Strangers constantly tell me what lovely skin I have. Last year at my annual checkup, my doctor commented that she wished all her patients were as healthy as I am. :thumbsup:

We are vegan for ethical reasons; we care about how we treat our planet & fellow beings. A few of my favorite justifications for our diet:

I like to eat as low on the food chain as possible.

I want to leave as small a footprint as possible.

I want to eat as far from my DNA as possible. ;) (I especially like this one!)

Welcome to DU, pathansen. :hi: Visit like minded DUers here: There is a recipe thread that is pinned at the top of the forum with some great tasting recipes!

BTW, I have noticed at corporate functions that when there is a variety of pizza available the veggie pizza always gets eaten first. ;)

on edit: I certainly don't mean to discourage you from posting about this topic, but as you can see, you should have a very thick skin!
