    There are several different levels from Pescatarian through to full on vegan. Some donít eat meat but eat other dairy products such as eggs.

    What about eggs?
    And why do we have Chocolate eggs at Easter?
    The Easter Bunny has never laid an egg in its life 🤔

    Because almost all religions take on myths, traditions and stories from previous belief systems.

    You're being silly now. If it contains dairy products ...no.

    Or eggs or honey.
    I've been a veggie half my long life. Never quite stopped milk, although am trying.

    most cheese ( from the UK ) is Veggie, in the EU ( especially in the EU ) and USA, its a lottery

    parmesan isnt though ( gorgonzola isnt either ) they contain calf rennet in the ingredient, they cannot be called parmesan or gorgonzola if they do not contain the calf rennet ( as a side note, if you are veggie and want parmesan cheese, you can by veggie " hard cheese " )

    Vegans or Veggies eat plant based food which is purposely made to look like meat products purely based on FAMILIARITY!!

    Most Veggies eat Cheese and dairy

    Vegan = No Dairy ( Milk, Cheese, Eggs ) or anything that comes from a animal

    Vegans also very in terms of those who wonít wear leather, no leather car seats etc vs those who are dietary only vegans

    Ever eat in that greasy vegan place in town... then donít wear your fur. They get upset by it.

    I'm veggie and will only eat cheese that does not contain parts of a calf 's stomach. Similarly I would not eat sweets that contain ground up animal bones, ie gelatine.
    I regret that I have not given up dairy products, but am reducing consumption a lot.

    Re: Why do Vegans.......?

    The one thing I find odd is why a vegitarian or vegan would go into an establishment like Macdonalds and order a non meat option...even a coffee.
    If they feel so strong about animal welfare why line the pockets of people who probably have a hand in slaughtering more cows than any other corporation on the globe.

    Just a thought, when they do walk into one of these establishments, do they do so with leather shoes on?

    Re: Why do Vegans.......?

    I donít understand veggies who donít eat meat because of animal welfare. The dairy industry is just as brutal as the meat industry, so why abstain from one and not the other?

    Re: Why do Vegans.......?

    You assume all vegans are vegans to save animals?

    Poor assumption.

    Re: Why do Vegans.......?

    I havenít read the thread but I can imagine how itís gone. I havenít eaten meat for nearly 20 years but have never really understood why meat eaters are so militant with their views. Give me a preachy vegan over an ill informed carnivore any day.

    Re: Why do Vegans.......?

    Lots of whatabouterism on this thread, as with a lot conversation about veggies/vegans.

    For some reason a lot of meat eaters can't go "you don't eat meat for personal reasons? ok" - they go "BUT WHAT ABOUT THIS, WHAT ABOUT THAT"

    The only thing I can think of is it's insecurity brought on by seeing people making a principled stand about something, it makes people incredibly defensive.

    Everybody knows that mass farming is cruel (and if you can convince yourself you don't, give it a quick search on youtube)
    Some people love meat so much they can turn a blind eye, fine - meat's delicious and it's a short life we've got so you might not want to deprive yourself of something you love. That's your choice.

    Others decide they'd rather not eat meat, which for some reason is a red rag to some meat eaters and leads to "WHY EAT PRODUCTS THAT LOOK LIKE MEAT? "WHAT ABOUT SHOES" "WHY AREN'T YOU VEGAN THEN" "CAVEMEN ATE MEAT" etc

    It's bizarre

    Don't get me wrong, I know there's a lot of preachy vegetarians and vegans, but I'd say proportionally there's just as many if not more preachy meat eaters. This thread's a good example - as far as I can see none of the veggies are digging the meat eaters out for their diet choices, not even me and I'm a level 5 vegan - I don't eat anything that casts a shadow.

    I am not sure many vegans would go into Macdonalds . Not the ones I have met anyway.
    I guess the practice is getting ever popular when Greggs get fantastic publicity with the vegan sausage roll.

    Do either or both of those tribes appear in any Star Trex episodes

    Re: Why do Vegans.......?

    Really quite surprising how many vegans/veggies there are on this board. Perhaps the club should do a FGR and just serve veggie food at CCS.
    You know you want to.

    Yea we dont eat Geletine either, a bugger when the kids were younger and going to softplay parties, always came out with a " goodie bag " with them small bags of Haribo, had to always remember to take a bag or a safe sweets ( though my girls did like the small bags of rasians ) to swap it with

    Normal DMs are like £120 or £130 so not too bad considering
