    Nah, there is TONS of great veggie food. You just need to know how to combine it and cook it.

    Del's veggie, and makes some awesome veggie food. The good thing is, she's not averse to handling or cooking meat (or fish). She even knows how to skin rabbits and pluck game birds (just how she was brought up)

    What is this “thin scrape” of Marmite of which you speak?

    I’m guessing therefore you manage to get the recommended 25 servings from a ‘ 25 serving’ jar of the stuff? I only usually managed about 11 slices of toast!

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself. -- Johann Sebastian Bach.

    I guess because you're a vegetarian and don't like meat (or fish). Seems simple, no? Plus, if you're against the (often cruel slaughtering of animals - ever seen inside a battery-chicken farm, for example?). Nice it ain't...

    I think you took it wrong, i was saying why eat veggi not the reasons why!

    However i think im just visualising tasteless artificial food.. I don't like cruelty & try all i can to say buy free range eggs from the farm down the road, try not to eat much red meat. But if thousands of people stop eating meat, the same amount of Livestock would still get slaughtered. Its an industry, the excess would just get exported would it not?

    No, I didn't take it wrong at all, mate. When you've lived with a staunch veggie for 30 years, you *know* exactly why they don't eat meat - or fish and stick to veggie/plant-based foods. Yes, only kid-on veggies eat fish! I can assure you though that "tasteless artificial food" is the complete opposite of what it's like when done well.

    For example, what's tasteless or artificial about some fresh spinach and ricotta ravioli, served with a gorgeous homemade fresh tomato and basil sauce, or a beautiful porcini mushroom or asparagus risotto, a beautiful cheese soufflé or a spicy chick-pea and spinach curry?

    Just a few examples of veggie food that I'd happily eat...
