The sight of human chopping a helpless animal to bits drives me crazy and I can't help it. I don't do anything physically to stop them but I detest the person for doing so.
You must lead a very lonely life, then. How do you get out of bed of a morning, knowing that you'll have to interact with people you detest all day long?

Carnivore jaw:


Our teeth don't look like an herbivore's... nor do they look like a carnivore's.... but they most certainly look like an omnivore's.
That is one awesome jaw! I wish I had something as menacing like that... The curves and dynamics on that skull are like poetry.

Either that or I should have stayed away from the wrong cloud crowd at the art school...

you can make vegan pancakes with banana instead of egg and coconut (or rice or almond) milk. Delicious!
Have you got the recipe please -as I'd love to make some for my grandson who has a severe allergy to eggs, thanks.

When our daughter made the same decision as a teenager- like you we knew the only way to keep her healthy was to study with her how to get sufficient protein, vitamins, etc. So we did all the research together at first, the sourced the correct ingredients and recipes, and we cooked TOGETHER- and then slowly she took over her own requirements. Sadly many teenagers (girls most often) do become vegetarians or vegans without support- and just end up eating rubbish and having related health problems, ostoporosis, etc. Sadly too if it becomes a tug of war- it can result in a war of wills which could lead to severe problems like anorexia, etc. So BRAVO for accepting her choice and helping her with it in the most healthy way. Lentil bolognese is great with pasta. We had a health store near us in the UK that sold the most amazing spicy or nutty tofu burgers- does anyone know where they can be bought here in CH.

My daughter has been a vegetarian for quite some time and she's about to beome vegan. This will affect the eating habits of the whole family since I cannot cook a completely vegan meal for her alone, fry steaks for the boys and cook something for myself.

My question is, what exactly does/can a vegan eat and what is an absolute no-go? When I think about it it seems all that's left is salads, vegetables and such, not even chocolate or cakes or cookies (there is milk in them).

Maybe those of you who eat vegan or know more about it might be able to give me some ideas?

Thanks in advance
They sell vegan cookies at the Reformhouse stores.
Perhaps go to a Reformhaus store and have a look around to see what they have. My sister has become a vegan (she has Rheumatoid Arthritis and it has really helped her condition) and she gets most of her "treats" from the reform house stores (I use the term 'treats' very generously here as all of the stuff I've tried is nasty ).

1 banana = 2 eggs. Tomorrow I will be making a vegan dinner incl. desert which I haven't made before and I'm really excited to do it!

Re: Vegan advice

Not sure if this is relevant - but here goes. Our daughter refused to eat eggs when she became vegetarian (must say I am glad she didn't become veggan as it is a tad+ more complicated). Even free range. So I got some ex-battery hens for 1£, 4 of them, and made a pen with hen house at the back of the garden. They roamed our garden and the neighbours + the pub's happily for years. It was a wonderful experience- and she only took the eggs when the hen had 'abandoned' them. As she could take part in the whole process raising them totally cruelty free, she was happy to eat the eggs left.

I was talking about the people who chop the animal to bits in the slaughter house Oh! and even if I was the only human on the planet I would not feel lonely. I would like to have my wife with me though

Re: Vegan advice

Don't forget Marmite: good vegan source of B12 and available from large Coop supermarkets. Even if you hate it the normal way (on toast, yum) you can e.g. make good gravy with it.
