There's no ned to be fully vegetarian. I was a vegan and vegetarian for over 15 years but that was by choice. truth is we just need to get back to pre industrial revolution meat consumption. Even in the fifties when my parents were growing up they would only have meat a couple of times a week.

growing up we only had meat three times a week - sunday roast and then twice during the week...

the reason i eat meat more now is its cheap and readily available...

if i get hungry it's easy to eat a ham/beef sandwich if its in the fridge... if not i'll eat bread on its own

wouldn't bother me either way if we had to return to less-meat eating time...

i agree... i'd more easily eat vegetarian than insects... i'm weird about meat - cant eat it if it has bones attached or looks like the animal in anyway - filleting grasshoppers would be way too labour intensive...

veggie stir fry sounds great about now...

Whereas I don't have that problem.... Even though I was veggie for over a decade I could now have a whole rabbit head and all and wouldn't bother me.

.

And the reason meat is cheap is because it's heavily, very heavily subsidised!

There's a reason the majority of the EU budget goes to agriculture!....


If meat was sold at the real cost, things would be very different indeed!!

I could probably live on a vegetarian diet.

It would consist of Pasta and Broccoli every night but doable!

I could not live on a vegetarian diet and I don't think it is a healthy diet.

I seen this the other night we eat about a kilogram of insects a year from eggs they lay in foods and routine contamination.

It is mad how much meat we eat these days. I could definitely do with cutting down a bit.

How's your blood group diet going? Didn't you have to cut out certain meats? (Can't find the thread for it)

No Meat is grand for my blood type as far as I know. Its the wheat and dairy that I should be avoiding.

I'm just saying that I do eat too much meat.

Me too. I was once served fish in a restaurant with it's skin / head / fins intact and I nearly freaked out. I can eat chicken wings / drumsticks though.

I'd probably go vegetarian first. I have no problem eating meat, and think I'd be OK with insects too, but I often prefer vegetarian dishes over their meat filled counter parts anyway. Anyone who has spent time with me in Cork knows that one of my favourite places to go is the vegetarian/vegan restaurant.

People tend to forget our bodies evolved with occasional meaty meals and a lot of vegetable foods.

Our bodies do not change over a mere couple hundred years....


too much meat will most certainly kill you.

Evolution, 2 million years of it, as a specie we are only eating agricultural produce 5 to 7 thousand years, before we existed solely on meat.

Traditional and tribal societies still do, the Inuit eat no vege and enjoy very good health. Amazonian, some african and traditional aboriginal societies eat little vege and also enjoy good health.

The North American Indians for months would solely survive on a food of sun dried strips of buffalo soaked in rendered down buffalo fats and picking the odd berry here and there. Dimmick (not sure of the name) was the food choice of the early Arctic explorers till science thought they had better ideas.

Yes, that all may be almost true. Yet you're conveniently forgetting the vast majority of the population lives on little or no meat and people can be very healthy living on plant foods alone but try and live on meat and you will be dead in little time. If you ever manage to get passed the mega intestine blockage, that is.
