They Say That For Climate Change

Switching to a Plant Based Diet. Would help the fight. This seems to be the in thing now with many restaurants offering plant based items on their menus.

The BBC have an article here on the subject.

Meat production they say heavily affects the environment and switching to a Plant based diet instead will assist in changing things for the better.

Would you be willing to go plant based in the near future?

A world without bacon, sausages, steak & pork chops, sheer hell on earth.

The animals are fine on a plant based diet.

Quickbeam tell that to our cat :0)

I'm with Belatucadrus on this one.

I meant the animals in our food chain they all eat grass!

I have several family members that have stopped eating meat. They enjoy reminding you how unhealthy it is at family gatherings.

I have tried some of their stuff and while it was nice I do enjoy a nice roasted chicken personally. A world without chicken isn't a world I want to be in.

While I have nothing against vegetabalists in general, there is an excessively sanctimonious preachy element to some of them. You know the ones, if they visit you they insist you cater to their dietary requirements but refuse to do the same for you when the situation is reversed. Like so many religious converts they do love to bang on about it ad infinitum.

Besides quorn is anathema to me and goes against my secular principles.

Looks like Burger King now has one of the beef-like veggie burgers on the menu.

Oddly with all this happening McDonald's seem to be avoiding this route and sticking with what they currently offer.

I don't know about a purely plant-based diet, but over the past two or three years my wife and i have drifted away from eating meat, and we now eat fish and vegetables with the occasional bit of chicken.

Red meat doesn't figure in our diet now. It hasn't been a conscious decision, but we are unlikely to change back. According to the supermarkets, meat consumption has fallen quite dramatically.

As long as I can remember I have hated vegetables and as a kid I was forced to eat them.

The only vegetables that now grace my dinner plate are peas, sweetcorn and potatoes. I'm not that fussed about the peas really and the sweetcorn has to have salad cream on it!

I happily eat any sort of meat, pasta dishes, oriental/asian foods and fish.

I would and am actually in the process. It's not easy switching because you not only switch meat for other proteins but you switch your whole routine, eating habits and even "pleasure". But still think it's worth it, it's the least I can do for our planet.
