At first I thought "What a stupid idea. They will lose so much business". Then I remembered a comedian who said "Show me a guy who is a vegetarian and I'll show you a guy who is trying to sleep with a vegetarian" :D

Good line .....

We eat meat free a few days a week and yes its my wife's choice :) .....

I've eaten vegetarian for long periods in the past, but vegetarianism is a far cry from veganism.

I can eat vegetarian and actually enjoy a lot of vegetarian meals but vegan is a no go, I like dairy products way to much to go vegan.

We try to eat balanced meals and keep meat to a minimum. McD's or a big steak is a 'treat'.

Lots of veggies especially during the summer.

We whip up a lot of oriental meals....always tons of veggies...minimal meat protein. And my wife makes a mean quick fried tofu slice....almost taste like beef.  Yum.

ALL really? Don't you think that was a bit of a racial slur?

How about if Guido said 'If we could get black people to act normal'. Would you just say 'All Guido said was'?

I doubt it.

Of course I realize that the greatest percentage of ALL people work and pay taxes.

Guess you don't see a verbal backhand when you see it.

And to be frank....why are you busting my gonads....and not HIM!!!!!!!!

Implying black people in general don't act "normal"?

Suggesting only white people get up and go to work?

Sorry, those are way beyond what EL-FLIPPO said, even if both of you said things in jest.

I'm quite aware of the difference ......

Oldest daughter was a vegan for a decade .....

Not being able to use dairy made holiday cooking very difficult .......

Lot easier now that she is a vegatarian, eggplant parm, meatless lasagna, etc .....

Now that vegans have become more mainstream, you can actually buy vegan flour and such.  My grandson and his girlfriend, my son & his girlfriend are all vegans, my daughter is vegetarian.

Yes, you can but that's a bit of a challenge to make completely different dishes for 1 person when you are already cooking for a 3 days for a dozen plus people .....

Much simpler now that she's just vegatarian and I can make meatless versions of what I am making for others .....

The no dairy, no cheese was a pita .....

If you're really concerned about climate change you'll stop eating meat, especially pork and beef.

Its production is a major contributor of greenhouse gases.

I do a lot of family dinners so I know what you mean.  It is a challenge but at least the vegetarian will eat the vegan dishes so I usually only have to cook 2 different meals for the 1 dinner.  When I do the holiday dinners there are so many people, usually about 30 of us, that it can get very time consuming with the different meals.

I can't imagine myself eating a meal at a "vegan cafe".

Agree, ever.

 

So they can tax men 75% and make them wait a day to eat and it's no skin off of me.(no pun)

 

Maybe that will convince aussie men to eat like men:D

There is a difference between vegetarians and vegans...

Differences Between Vegan and Vegetarian. ... Likewise, vegans avoid meat, poultry, and seafood, but they also take it a step further by eliminating all animal products from their diet. This includes any type of animal milk and eggs. Vegans avoid foods produced using animals or animal products in any way, including honey.

This is why when you cook a meal for a vegan a vegetarian can eat it but a vegan cannot always eat a vegetarian meal.

Only with factory farms.  If you buy from farmers who raise their animals locally and responsibly then you don't have that issue

Why should I care about a vegan restaurant in another country?

 

Better yet: Why do you?
