Credeti că un regim de viață vegan sau vegetarian e mai sănătos? mă gândesc serios să renunț la carne și, treptat, și la lactate, să renunț de tot la produse animale. Doar cu alimentația e problemă, in rest totul e vegan și bio la mine de la machiaje până la haine.

Felicitări pentru gând. Documentează-te din cât mai multe surse, nu păreri. Eu îți pot zice doar că nu mai mănânc carne (în afară de pește), din clasa a 7-a și nu am avut nicio problemă, de la analize până la stare generală. Totuși, fiecare corp e diferit și poate al tău nu ar reacționa așa bine.

Nu, corpul are nevoie de carne(calciu, vitamine, magneziu, fier, etc) la fel și de lactate. Niciodată nu am înțeles viața asta “sănătoasă” când tu renunți la atâtea beneficii pentru corp. Dar până la urmă fiecare face ce vrea.

Jste zastánci pro vegetariány a vegany nebo s jejich názory nesouhlasíte?

Podívejte, já neřeším, co kdo jí. Jsi vegetarián? Fajn. Jsi vegan? Fajn. Co víc mám k tomu říct. mě je to jedno, zda druzí jedí maso, sýr, rostlinnou stravu nebo písek s cementem, je to každého věc.
Sama veganka ani vegetariánka nejsem, sice jsem tři roky vegetariánka byla, ale moc mi to nesvědčilo, takže jsem od toho upustila.
Vůbec mi nevadí, když je někdo vegan, a pokud mi má takový člověk přijít na večeři, ráda mu uvařím veganské jídlo. Stejně tak pokud pozve on mě, tak si ho dám ráda s ním, sice jím i maso, i vejce, i mléčné výrobky, ale zároveň i tofu, soju, luštěniny, rostlinná mléka atd, chutná mi to, a mám ráda pestrost...
Co mi ale vadí je, když se ostatní naváží do druhých, otravují je a nazývají je buď pošahanými listožrouty nebo naopak vrahy zvířat, sobci nebo neosvícenými jedinci, kteří ještě nedošli k Nirváně tím, že se ještě nedali na veganství :D
A je úplně jedno, pokud se normálně se stravující strefují do vegetariánů a veganů nebo vegani do normálně se stravujících. Oboje je špatně a ani jedna strana na to nemá právo. Co je zdravější se říct nedá. Jasně, že správně postavená veganská strava bude vždycky zdravější, než klasický český jídelníček. Ale stejně tak je daleko zdravější jíst všechno, ale stravovat se zdavě a správně, než být takový ten vegan na vegan chipsech, sušenkách nebo těch olejových sýrech a všelijakých geniálních předražených náhražek vyrobených Bůh ví z čeho...pak je nespasí ani to, že je to 100% rostlinné.
Nikdo by neměl nikomu násilím cpát svůj názor a nutit svůj životní styl nebo ho linčovat za to, že má někdo jiný. Ani jedna strana. To jedné mi vadí, protože přesně to lidé dělají.
Kdyby se radši nechali na pokoji a každý si jedl to, co sám chce...Aspoň zbude pro všechny :D

When was the last time you had a typical main course meal with no meat in it? What did you have? If you're vegetarian / vegan, when was the last time you ate something which did have meat in it? Do you remember what the last thing you ate which contained meat was?🍗🚫

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
If I remember correctly- the last time I ate something with meat was September-October 2018.
I don't remember what the last thing was. The only thing I remember is that I really wanted to have fish just before I became vegan, but I never did.

Some say that bugs are the food of the future, how do you feel about that? Would you be willing to try out a diet where you get much of the protein from bugs? If you're vegetarian / vegan, does it seem like a good option for those who eat meat? 🍽🐜🦗🐛

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Well, they do say if we want to save the planet, the future of food is insects.. Personally, I don't imagine it.
And, no, I wouldn't try out such a diet.

Do you like to have things planned out or are you more spontaneous? How does that apply when you're gonna go on a trip for example? 🗓

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I like a good mixture between both!
Part from all the safety measures I like to know about the places, having a partner with severe (food) allergies and me being a vegetarian makes dining out a little bit harder in some countries or areas.
I always like to check beforehand what the options are so we would never end up checking restaurant after restaurant when we’re hungry.
Same with the activities. I like to know what kind of things there are to do (and sometimes a preferable order of them) to make the most out it! 😄 but I’m not the person that plans things from hour to hour because I don’t want to feel hasty/rushed.
Aka: we just take as much wood with us to build a raft and see how far the waves will take us further 😄

Ne jako. Jestli je někdo vegan, vegetarián, vegecosijemitofuk, tak je mi to úplně, ale úplně u prdele. Třeba fakt žer šutry. Jen mi to necpi s tím, že rádoby zachraňuješ planetu a děláš to pro naše děti. Ne. Takhle to opravdu nefunguje. Je to naprostá blbost, a čistý hloupý výmysl chorých mozků. Stejně převládá většina masožravců. Nic tím nezměníš. Prostě ne. Smiř se s tím.

Zkoušeli jste někdy nějaký druh netypického stravování (netypického např. pro vaše okolí). Vegetariánství, veganství, bezlepek, frutariánství? Nebo třeba takovou výzvu bez cukru, mléka a lepku? Nebo jíte normálně?

Why are you a picky eater?

I'm paying with my own money, and living under my own roof, so if I want to have fried fish (without tartar sauce) and chips WITHOUT any vegetables on the side, I will.
I was extremely sick as a kid and I had to be fed certain foods and certain amounts, even when I wasn’t hungry. It made me constantly feel more sick. Now it’s is really hard for me to eat and I have an eating disorder.
My sense of smell wins me over most times. If something doesn’t smell good enough, or straight up stinks, I will not try/eat it. Also, if the plate I am offered/served has an ingredient I know I don’t like, I won’t eat it neither.
I starved myself too. Food has been a struggle for as long as I can remember. I have no idea why. I'm still skinny and I still don't eat much on a daily basis. But force-feeding me has only made it worse. If my parents had tried another way maybe I would have been able to eat normally now that I'm adult.
I was too, but it was only because I had a habit of starving myself out of pickiness. I do wonder if that hasn't contributed to my eating problems as an adult.
At restaurants and stuff, it's not too bad. They usually have something I can find that's alright, or I just order it without/with a bunch of stuff (I always feel bad for the waiter/ress though because I'm so high maintenance). Same thing goes with the cafeteria food at uni. It was a little harder in high school, so if the entree was something I didn't like, I'd either not eat or just eat the sides. It's kind of hard at other people's houses. I'll usually just not take a lot of it and stomach what I have to to be polite.
I've been a picky eater for as long as I remember, but I'm not a dick about it. I'm not a vegetarian, and I don't have any dietary requirements... I'm just weird when it comes to food. I usually have a packed lunch instead of cafeteria food and when I stay at my friend's we usually get a takeaway or I just eat what they give me.I was a very picky eater in my younger years! Interestingly, I read that picky eaters consume a diet of mostly orange/yellow coloured foods. This proved accurate in my case so I began trying to create colourful meals.
So far every person I know that is picky about food was forced to eat things they didn't want as a child. Since my parents never forced anything on me I grew up liking most everything. When I was little I loved broccoli and brussels sprouts and just couldn't fathom that none of the other kids would touch them.

Are you a picky eater?

I haven’t counted but it would probably be around 30 as well. My food issues were a primary driving factor that made me realize I could be autistic, and I discussed them with my psychologist. Having an explanation makes it much easier for people to understand and respect my food tolerances and intolerances. For years, I would start with “I’m a vegetarian” and then get offered a full plate of vegetables that I couldn’t eat, and it was always awkward. I’ve switched to “I’m autistic and struggle with eating a variety of food. I’d be happy to eat before the gathering / bring something for everyone to share.” Much better.
Today I wrote a list of all the foods I will eat because I’ve been told I’m a picky eater and I wanted to find out if I actually am. I included things I make myself eat to stay healthy (like vegetables.) I broke down full dishes into their ingredients, but I counted pre-made things like chips or peanut butter as 1. In total my list has 33 things on it. I’m curious to know if anyone else has done this and how many foods do you eat? There are 3.1 things I refuse to eat. Kale cause it's bitter, Celery cause it's like trying to eat hair, Figs cause of the wormy texture, and the brown part of a banana because it looks gross.
I’m extremely picky and therefore eat extremely unhealthy since vegetable, some fruits and other healthy food are a big no-no from me❌ I used to be a really picky eater - everything had to be plain (no sauce or spice) no foods touching etc. I think that was a learnt trait though because white my parents were eating other foods later in the evening after work, my brother and I were fed by the babysitter 5 nights a week who made us plain pasta with tuna on the side or potatoes and fish fingers - those kinda meals.
I only have one food that's linked to a bad experience and that's yoghurt. Was made to eat it once by a teacher cause it was the only thing left in the canteen at lunchtime. Despite insisting I hated it, she forced me to - came home after school and puked up all night long. The thought of it and texture just make me want to puke to this day (this happened around 13 years or so ago). I'd say expose your child to as many flavours as you can and let them try your meals if you are eating something different. I gradually came around and now at 21 I'd say I like quite a wide variety of foods - mostly due to moving out and experimenting with what I want to cook. For me, I think it was lack of exposure to a variety of foods, and being forced to eat. My mom rotated the same 3 or 4 meals for dinner, and would always include something she knew I didn't like. To this day I despise sweet potatoes because she would force me to eat a pile of them at dinner. I didn't even have the option of going to bed hungry, which I think I gladly would have taken.

Has it ever happened that you swallowed something you were not supposed to? 😶

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I've eaten meat a few times in the last few years, if that counts. I've been vegetarian for over four years, but unfortunately been served meat a couple of times. It's a shame, but nobody did it on purpose. I remember a restaurant I went to could have been more apologetic, but it's not a big deal. I got over it. 🙂

I forgot my lunch for work the other day so I popped into the store and got a pack of pitta breads and some premade sandwich filler (Egg mayo). I made my lunch in work and was severely disappointed. Egg mayo was bland yet bitter, too much vinegar in mayo. Have you bought something you regretted?

I most certainly have, many a time! The most recent example I can think of was the pre-packaged vegetarian sushi I got from my university's canteen. It was so dry and flavourless. And the worst part is, there is actually a genuine sushi restaurant within walking distance of my uni campus, that makes fresh sushi every day, and it's always super delicious!
But I was lazy, so I opted for the quick option.
Big mistake.
I'll just go to the restaurant, next time!

Have you ever made pizza at home? What kind of toppings do you like to have when you make them yourself? 🍕

I have made pizza at home a couple of times!
My favourite pizza toppings are: tomato sauce, vegetarian ‘chicken’ pieces, cheese and seasoning like chili, garlic, salt and curry.
After it baked in the oven, I prefer putting either bbq or garlic sauce over it.

Hi👋 Menurut kalian lebih sehat vegetarian atau yg makan daging? Fyi buat yg blun tau vegetarian itu orang yg tdk mengonsumsi daging hewan yaa

Tergantung. Bisa disesuaikan dengan tujuan dan kebutuhan tubuh. Lalu makanan bisa lebih sehat vegetarian atau daging juga tergantung pengolahan.

If mushrooms(fungi) were sentient, would you eat them?

Being as I am an omnivore and eat meat, yes I probably would. I sway back and forth on this. I hate the thought of the horrible farming practices and of living things being scared or suffering for my food - but from a philosophical standpoint animals eating other animals is how balance in maintained in the natural world - the food chain would collapse if all animals were vegetarian for example.
As usual I am undecided! As humans we have a tendency to feel we know better and can reason better than other species. If in doubt I tend to look at nature's example. After all, the natural world has been keeping balance for longer than we have been around! I have to say though I do try and limit my meat and animal product consumption and support ethical farming. Human farming is far from 'natural' in many ways!

Are you meat eater, veggie or vegan ?

I tend to alternate between being vegetarian and pescetarian, though when folks ask, I usually just tell them I'm a vegetarian since it's easier to explain... And besides, it's not *too* far from the truth. I am a vegetarian the majority of the time. I don't eat red meat or poultry and haven't since I was a child. But I do, very occasionally, eat seafood.

Can sea food be vegan or nah?

grandmasterqtipp2’s Profile Photonicholas
Vegetarians do not eat the flesh of animals. Thus, by this definition, fish and seafood are not vegetarian ( 1 ). Some vegetarians, known as lacto-ovo-vegetarians, eat certain animal products, such as eggs, milk, and cheese. As one of the main types of vegetarian diets, a vegan diet involves abstaining from eating any meat or animal products. This includes meat and poultry, as well as fish and shellfish. Vegans also avoid other foods derived from animals, including honey, dairy products, and gelatin so no sea food can’t be vegan food

I saw you take photos of food. Do you have a photo of something that you loved? Where was it?

Yes!
This was at a cafe that sadly is no longer open! They specialised in vegetarian foods! So this was the veggie hot dogs and chips!
It was so damn tasty! The sausages had a great herb taste and the chips weren't greasy! Plus it was fair price!
The cafe did awesome teas and cold drinks too! So here we had cherry cola and an elderflower drink :)
I miss this place so damn much! Much the owners wanted to try a different venture..

To vegans/vegetarians: have you always been vegan/vegetarian or did you eat meat at some point? What made you stop?

LouiseDooley’s Profile PhotoOrion The Huntress
I've been vegetarian for about 4 and a half years. I'm actually really proud of myself for it! ☺️
I stopped eating meat just for the simple fact that I love animals, and I would feel guilty every time that I did eat them. Also I'd be outraged about the dog meat festivals that unfortunately go on, all while tucking into my chicken or beef and I just thought that was really hypocritical of me. All animals lives matter. I don't push my views on other people, though. Obviously I think it's a shame that more people aren't vegan/vegetarian, but I don't look down on or think I'm better than meat eaters. Most of my friends and family eat meat, and I'm totally fine with that. Ultimately it's down to the specific person, and if they decide vegetarianism isn't for them, I'm not going to argue.

LouiseDooley’s Profile PhotoOrion The Huntress
I became vegetarian in about 1998. I was already reducing my meat intake as I thought (incorrectly as it happened) that it may be responsible for the hematitis I was experiencing, but also I was seeing someone who was veggy so that helped.
I stuck with it long after both that partner was gone and the frequent vomiting hospitalisations were diagnosed as autonomic neuropathy.

What kind of eater are you? Fast or slow. Fussy/picky or advantageous (will eat 99% of anything)

BlueEyesWhiteGuy’s Profile PhotoReaper
I wouldn't call myself a "fussy" eater but I'm certainly a creature of habit and, when it comes to food, I tend to stick with things I know I enjoy. I eat a lot of the same meals week in and week out. That said, I am not opposed to trying new foods - as long as it's vegetarian.

Pokud jsi vegetarián, nejíš maso protože ti nechutná nebo jen z etického důvodu či obojí?

Vegetarian nejsem, porad jeste si jednou za mesic to maso dam, ale urcite bych na vegetarianstvi chtela pomalu do budoucna prejit. A to z obou duvodu, plus jeste i tech ekologickych...

If someone wanted to date you today, what 3 things should they absolutely know about you first?

1) I have a lot of mental health issues. I've been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, anxiety, depression etc. It means dating me can be really tough if I'm not in a good place.
2) I suppose they'd have to know I'm a vegetarian, because some people are funny about that. I've had people give me dirty looks, call me abusive names and most recently someone said to me "I've lost all respect for you". 🙄
3) Good humour is a big thing for me and I need someone who can make me laugh. It's not hard to be honest, I have the most childish sense of humour. :')

What is your favourite occasion out of Christmas, Valentines Day, Easter and your birthday?

iamnotdoctoranonstar’s Profile PhotoOϻz ♤
Although my favourite holiday as a child used to be Christmas because of the presents and the happy atmosphere . The last few years as I grow up I realized that the Easter is a little better. I think is more emotional and religious. Last year was the first time I tried to fast , I didn't eat meat for forty ( other people don't eat many other things) and made me realize that people do not truly need the meat in their daily life so much as other food. It is not so difficult to become a vegetarian lol , ok I'm not , but I was for forty days and I was completely fine it means something 😁. However we do have many interesting Greek Easter Traditions. For example , eggs are being boiled and dyed red , baking tsoureki , Church Bells, Tomb of Jesus, Midnight Church Service and Candles, Red Egg Cracking , Eating Magiritsa ( I don't really like it but many people here love it ) and the last one Roasting the lamp . And who forgets the Easter chocolate eggs or bunnies which are not greek tradition but people here especially kids love it because they are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G .

Do you think it is difficult to live as a vegetarian/vegan?

I've been a vegetarian for a long time so I don't even think about it to be honest, just take extra supplements to make sure I'm getting what I need and that's about it. It helps that meat did not always agree with me cause it means I don't miss it but new veggies that enjoy meat might find it more difficult

What is something about you that few people know because you don't like to mention it?

That I'm a vegetarian. I always get the same annoying responses back, like people always have the feeling they need to express their opinions on me when I say I am vegetarian and it's sooo annoying like I don't care, just do and eat what you want.

No, asi takhle. Všechno co se přehání je vždycky spíš na škodu, než k užitku.
Jíst maso není špatné. Je v něm spousta dobrých věcí, které se těžko nahrazují. Jde je nahradit, ale pak se podle mě člověk stává otrokem jídla a nemůže řešit nic jiného. Když někdo maso jí každý den 5x, tak z toho bude mít problémy, stejně jako kdyby jedl jenom mrkev...
Např. děti maso potřebují. Pro správný vývoj a růst. A pokud ho nedostávají, měli by rodiče velmi velmi dbát na to, co tomu dítěti dávají místo toho. Když na to nedbají, dítě končí s velkými bolestmi, růstovými problémy a kolikrát nenávratně poškozenými kostmi u doktorů, kteří si s ním nevědí rady...
Být vegan nebo vegetarián není jenom o tom že chudáci zvířátka a všichni lidi jsou vrazi. Je to vlastně skoro věda. A když ji podceníš, dopadneš stejně špatně, jako kdybys jedla třeba jenom fastfood. Je potřeba se opravdu neustále vzdělávat a kontrolovat všechno možné. A mě osobně to přijde jako závislost až otroctví jídlu, které má podle mě být radost a ne problém.
Osobně si raději dám jednou týdně pořádné maso ze zdroje, který pokládám za ověřený, než abych veškerý čas věnovala zjišťování co mi bude chybět a jak to nahradit.
Veganství ani nic jiného neodsuzuji. Jsou lidé, kterým to prospívá, které to třeba dostane ze zdravotních problémů. Ale nefungují tak všichni lidé a rozhodně to není směr pro všechny bez výjimky. A už vůbec to není směr pro člověka, který jenom slyší chudák zvířátko a dál se o to nestará. Ten si zadělá akorát ne problémy.

Bloody as hell, with a five dollar shake.
Bloody or burnt black I would eat it anyway.
I rarely eat steak but it must be well done.
At a restaurant - medium because if you say rare they will send you a raw steak, then a warm raw steak, then a rare cooked steak...
Boiled for several hours in beef stock and an entire bottle of red wine with onions and mushrooms
I worked in a kitchen as a youngster and the chef would always get slightly annoyed at a paying customer having the gall to ask for a well-done steak. I can see where they're coming from; it's a good piece of meat and them having it charred, blackened (and probably smeared with ketchup) seems like a waste, but it's their money.
I like mine well-seared. Once I get that nice dark caramelization going on, it's all over - I can take it from rare to well-done in the oven once the sear is right. Simple salt and pepper works great, ripping hot pan or grill required of course...
Medium rare. I've not had it any other way. I was a vegetarian for 16 years, and just started trying meat again about a year ago. I'm still discovering what I like/don't like. I've only had the option to try steak twice since, and the person sitting next to me ordered theirs medium rare, so that's what I ordered. It was pretty good, so if I get another chance to try steak, I'll probably order it the same way again. If the people around me order theirs done differently, I'll try a bite of theirs as well if they're amenable.
Med rare if I am cooking it, rare if someone else is.... Because I assume someone else is going to suck and over cook it so my med rare will actually be medium soooooo gotta be prepared. I can eat a rare steak, I enjoy rare steak, but If I am cooking it I go for that perfect Med rare because its beautiful. A rare steak looks almost raw in the middle, but a mid rare looks fucking beautiful.
Medium to medium rare. If I'm going to eat raw meat, I'd actually fix it up like proper tartare. I want my steak cooked a bit, seems juicier that way. Maybe a pat of garlic butter and some pepper. I love steak sauce, but not on steak. Haha, I've tried it when he's cooked himself a rare steak (and maybe blue?), but it's the texture that gets me. With it being warm from the pan, that soft fleshy texture..It's an odd association, but i feel like I'm trying to chew on someone's arm :/ I think the closest I'll get to him trying anything 'well done' is my slow cooked brisket, But tbh I don't think I could go back to a steak cooked beyond medium rare because of the flavour loss. The usual steak debate now is: "how often can we afford the luxury of organic/free range fillet cuts from a reputable onine butcher", because the taste difference in comparison to a supermarket cut (supermarket butcher or shelf) is so vastly superior, it's honestly like unlocking a whole other bonus level in the Steak Game.

What changed for me is the active realization that not only was I paying $20 for a meal, I was also going to pay for that meal later with my health, because it’s being prepared by someone who only wants it to taste good, no matter the cost. They don’t care about what’s going in my body. So that meal is $20, plus whatever the cost of a heart attack and a wheel chair later? That’s so expensive. I made a list of the foods I felt addicted to, and tried to prepare alternatives at home. Even if they have to be a little unhealthy to be worth it to me, it’s still MILES ahead of whatever food you’re eating out. Taco Bell is pretty expensive fast food, and I ended up going vegetarian. I mix black beans, diced peppers, brown rice, and quinoa with cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt and pepper. I keep that in the fridge all week ready to go. I also mix avocado with salt, pepper, and lemon juice, and put that in a Rubbermaid with plastic wrap on top to keep the air out.
I struggle with this too, especially since the delivery service in my country requires a minimum amount, otherwise they slap a "small order fee" on top of the delivery fee, so they make you buy more so the small order fee is removed. Crazy, right? I think the best way to try to avoid deliveries is to prepare meals in advance. But I think it's absolutely okay to treat yourself every once in a while, especially if you don't have the spoons to just make anything right now.
I completely stopped when I realised how huge of a commission these delivery services take from the restaurant and from the courier. They sometimes take 40%!! And I really want to encourage the restaurant businesses rather than these huge corporations like Ubereats, Doordash, etc. This helps me get the courage to go out and get the food directly from there.
I ALWAYS look to the restaurant and do online order and then compare it to getting it delivered. We do take out once a week for our date night since we can't go out. Last night I saved 16 bucks in fees by just going to get it myself. it helps my thinking and helps me visualize how much it actually costs me to do delivery. Also, side note, I do food delivery as a side gig so I always tip well because I know the struggle of that gig, which also makes it better to just go get it.
I keep stuff for easy meals on hand, which helps. PB&J and fruit, microwave polenta & fried eggs and frozen veg, veggies and hummus, cheese & crackers & fruit/veg etc. Also like to keep a few easy meals in the freezer. Is this the absolute healthiest or cheapest? nope. But it's way cheaper than ordering out, and not as unhealthy as what I would order.
I ask my partner to hold me accountable and tell me not to order takeout when I get the urge (this doesn't work because he's a takeout fiend too - but if you live with someone who is anti-takeout, you may be more successful in this way).

Would you ever be vegan?

I could be a dietary vegetarian, but I could never be a true vegan.
I eat meat and animal-based products because they’re affordable . Meat is my main source of protein, dairy products calcium and other nutrients. The A/C unit in my house uses air filters that probably came from a cow.
I would hate to stop eating meat, fish, eggs, and milk, but I could if I wanted to. However, to abstain myself entirely from the usage of animals to my benefit is impossible in this day and age
