Some more aggressive questions contributed by my darling Onyka.
What the hell is a vegan anyway?
I don't eat/use any animal products. This includes meat, dairy, eggs, honey and animal derivatives such as gelatine.
What the fuck is wrong with you?
Many things, among them an overdeveloped sense of empathy. It really is tough being such a wonderful person.
To give a short list, my reasons are :
Animals, Environment, Health.
I had salmon tonight. What did you have?
Ooo I love these questions. Tonight I had houmous, pitta bread and salad plate. For lunch I had a Veggie Delite (yes, I realise they can't spell delight) Subway and tomorrow I plan to microwave a vegan cottage pie with vegetables.
Did you order out or do you have to prepare most of your meals if you want a varied menu?
I can ususally find something to eat in any given restaurant, eg. basic pasta, pizza without cheese, and curry. It does mean I am a bit frantic about checking labels and asking wait staff, but I definately can go out to dinner with my friends.
Do you only eat at Vegan restaurants?
No, but I do have a few favourites; 222 in London being one. They do an amazing veggie burger. It's nice to be able to eat everything on the menu.
Does your family approve of your choice to be vegan considering the fact that you'd need to take supplements for certain nutrients?
They're not overjoyed about it but I'm lucky, in that my mother and brother are vegetarian and my dad doesn't really care what we eat so they understand it. Of course, like all parents they think what I'm doing is wrong most of the time, but I'd say I eat more healthily than them. Quite badly, I don't take any supplements at the moment, I probably should take something for iron. Considering I haven't died these last 3 years though, I'm probably alright on the protein front.
Does Burger King make you angry?
Okay, then does it bug you to watch other people eat meat?
Yes, but i rein it in, for fear of being stoned. Obviously vegan is not the 'fashionable' thing to be. I've come to accept that I cannot control other's actions, the only thing I can do is provide them with all the info if they need it and lead by example. So I don't really get super mad at people and start throwing fake blood at them.
At least until the Vegan Revolution Mwahahaahahaha.
Want some steak?
Er, no thank you, I'll be fine over here with my veggie burger and salad. Can you stop waving it in my face, please. XD
