    I only read the first page, so apologies if this got corrected later in the thread.

    1. Are you vegan? Ja.
    2. Why? Same reasons as you, probably. I don't believe in killing animals if one can reasonably be able to avoid it, and unlike in the case of moving about freely, living in a shelter of some kind, and living in the conditions of the past, it's reasonably possible for many people to avoid eating meat.
    3. Name three of your favourite vegan eats. Veggie versions of stuff I was eating before--veggie burgers, for instance. Bok Choy and a lot of fried rice types are often vegan where I live, so there's them too. :p
    4. What is the most difficult part of being vegan? It was meat-cravings at first but that's subsided. Wondering about health, "is this actually vegan" and so on are my main concerns now. :p
    5. What is the most rewarding thing about being vegan? As someone else put it, the feeling of moral superiority. :p

    I am a vegetarian. I am against animal cruelty, industrial farms and mass killing of the animals. I also know people eat far more meat than their bodies actually need and we produce more meat than we're actually able to sell. All that resulting into animals dying in vain and in terrible conditions. And I could name many, many more issues that I have on my mind...but...
    I am against veganism, I did a huge research a few years back, when I was thinking of becoming a vegan and the information I've gained from reading multiply sources helped me to make-up my mind on this topic. Sure...you do get nutrition from plants, you even get protein from them, which is awesome! The issue is... proteins are not all the same, proteins that come from plants are different in their number of amino acids they contain. There are many different amino acids and some of them you only can find in animal products or meat. I avoid eating anything dead, but I do eat animal products such as milk and eggs to make sure I do have all the types of proteins I do need. There's also an amimo acid that can only be found in red meat e.g beef and is essential for the development of red cells in your body. Not speaking of B12, but I am sure you know about B12.

    I am not a vegetarian

    I am picky about the sources of my meat though, as I prefer for it to have had a happy life and have been killed humanely as possible (I believe that happy animals are tasty animals!) I did grow up on a farm though, so it's not like I ever had illusions as to where my food comes from

    I'm fond of black beans and rice, marinara sauce with pasta... hmm... most things involving potatoes? (not sweet potatoes... proper potatoes!)... as you can tell, I add meat to a lot of things

    I would not know the most difficult or rewarding parts of being a vegan, since I'm pretty strictly omnivorous (and actually afraid of plants touching me)

    Hahah. So if someone put a piece of seaweed on your leg you'd make the most non-8 sound ever?

    I agree with much of what you're saying. I'm picky about my meats (I buy from 3 farms - one for beef, one for lamb, one for chicken and eggs). We eat a decent amount of meat free meals - falafel, stuffed eggplant, Punjab dishes like Chana Masala, grilled paneer with spices, grilled vegetable pizza... it never occurred to me to think of it as vegetarian eating. I don't have any agenda and I don't really do it for economic purposes. Those dishes just taste good and I like using locally grown produce.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I would be a vegan if vegetables weren't disgusting.
    I want my cake and I wanna eat it too
