• How long have you been a Vegetarian/Vegan?

    I was looking at the answers to another question - I think it was 'Why are you a Vegetarian' - and someones' answer puzzled me: 'It's a fad.' So when does something stop being a 'fad' and start being a 'way of life'? I'm coming up to my 17th anniversary of being a vegetarian. My best friend has been... show more
    I was looking at the answers to another question - I think it was 'Why are you a Vegetarian' - and someones' answer puzzled me: 'It's a fad.' So when does something stop being a 'fad' and start being a 'way of life'? I'm coming up to my 17th anniversary of being a vegetarian. My best friend has been one since school (36 years ago - gulp, where did the years go????) I'd be interested in knowing how long people have been Vegetarian/Vegan.

  • Vitamins and Protein - why do omnis assume that we have trouble getting these from a vegetarian diet.?

    A couple of days ago I answered a question from someone asking where she would get her protein from if she became a vegetarian (answer was from just about every kind of food). It got me thinking. Why do they think that protein is only to be found in meat? What do they think we eat? So I've written what I've had so far and what my plans are... show more
    A couple of days ago I answered a question from someone asking where she would get her protein from if she became a vegetarian (answer was from just about every kind of food). It got me thinking. Why do they think that protein is only to be found in meat? What do they think we eat? So I've written what I've had so far and what my plans are for dinner tonight. Breakfast this morning - large bowl of Fruit and Fibre cereal, 150 semi skimmed milk and a banana. According to the nutritional information on the packaging, I've gotten 25% of my daily allowance of B12 from the cereal and 18% from the milk. 43% from one meal!!!!! Protein comes in at 6g from the milk (I had about 150ml) and 4g from the cereal (I had 50g of it). Lunch - I'm making Split pea soup for Ina Garten's book 'The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook' for lunch. It contains 900g of split peas, and serves 10, so that's about 90g per portion. That's about 23g of protein per portion just from the peas. The carrots, potatoes and onions also provide it. So I've had at LEAST 25g from one bowl of soup. Planned dinner tonight (being made by my 12 year old daughter) - Stir fry with pak choi (1.5g protein per 100g, Vitamin A equiv 243 μg (30%), Vitamin A 4468 IU, Vitamin C 45 mg (54%), Calcium 105 mg (11%), Iron 0.80 mg (6%)) carrots , mushrooms, beansprouts, courgettes, chinese leaves served with basmati rice. I can't be bothered to put all the nutritional into down, but I'll be getting at least 68% of my recommended vitamin C from this one meal. According to US & Canadian Dietary Reference Intake guidelines, women aged 19–70 need to consume 46 grams of protein per day, while men aged 19–70 need to consume 56 grams of protein per day to avoid a deficiency. http://www.foodnetwork.co.uk/recipes/par... http://www.dk.co.uk/nf/Book/BookDisplay/...

  • If some people object to vegetarians/vegans eating living things?

    because they have 'feeling' too, they they obviously object to eating anything with feelings. As they can't eat animals and plants, as both have feelings, then what, exactly, do THEY eat?

  • Protein affecting Calcium absorption?

    I know I've read about this somewhere, but I just can't find the article. So does anyone know, and can provide a link, to research about animal protein affecting how the body absorbs calcium. In particular, I'm interested how it would affect someone with osteoporosis. Thanks.

  • Can anyone name this book?

    Jump back to the 1960/70's Me - pony mad girl. I remember constantly renewing a book in my local library. It was about a girl who was training to be a riding instructor. She was assigned a horse called 'Cornish Pasty'. I'd love it if anyone could tell me the auth and title so I can get it for my own little pony mad girl. Thanks.

  • When Did This Stupid Fashion.......?

    of not admitting that you have a mongrel/mutt for a pet, but of trying to paste daft 'breed' names onto them start? Best one I saw was a question from someone wanting one of these dogs but didn't want to pay to much for it because he wasn't going to show it. Labradoodles? Cockapoos? Don't make me laugh.
