Re: What causes most harm in the world? But is completely avoidable.

Thanks, cornivore. I was looking for a succinct response, and yours is certainly that. Thanks for pointing that out, brim. That's often over-looked. I was able to expound at length on violence to the animals and the earth. I made the point (can't remember who came up with this, Earthling Ed, perhaps...

Re: Too Much Seitan?

Seitan not tasty? Whatever planet are you on? I've made seitan scores of times and it's never been less than tasty. Here are my tips for dead easy seitan: All I do nowadays is to weigh off the leftover stew - today around 350g, then estimate how much wheat gluten I'll need - and I went for 150g. To ...

What causes most harm in the world? But is completely avoidable.

Hi folks This is the topic for this coming Thursday's discussion/philosophy group. It's a pretty large subject, and hard to pin down to a single link. My take on it is that whatever contributes to GW/CG causes the most harm, and it's avoidable. So animal husbandry will come up - harm to the environm...

Sanctimonious vegans would do well to think about their diet’s global impact

Read more at: https://inews.co.uk/opinion/ In our discussion group this morning, the topic was: "What's good for the planet is good for us" When I brought up the fact that the best thing we could all do for the planet (and our health - and the animals) was to go vegan, one of our members bought up t...

Enquiring Minds topic - What’s good for you is also good for the planet

Hi folks It's that time of year again, when I decide on a list of topics we are to discuss over the next three months. I always feel I should include something on Climate Change in each programme - I feel the topic is woefully under-discussed. So next week's topic is: "What’s good for you is also go...

Re: Eating non-vegan food that’s going to waste

My mantra used to be 'No animal should die so that I can live." So when my wife was about to throw away eggs that had gone fast their sell-by date, I would step in and eat them, since I abhor waste. There were also a couple of cooked chicken breasts that were about to be thrown away in a care home I...
