Anyone watch the GB Food Fight stuff? Specifically the Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fernely Whittingstall ones.No. Got a link or anything?
In Tesco today I saw a shit load of people buying organic pork and chicken, wonder if it will last. Fuck Tesco though lol.
I dunno. I'm not that interested anymore. If I feel like, I'll search for it on a rainy day.

Veganism seems like a wee bit too much attention to pay to a diet, too. I like going into shops and knowing that I can buy every chocolate bar, every cake, pasta, every processed foodstuff there that doesn't have meat in it. I still check ingredients for shit like gelatine or rennet for certain products but it feels like if I was vegan then half of my staple foods would be impossible to find.
I don't really have a problem with it, but I think that's just because it's the way I've gotten used to eating. I know what I can and can't have most of the time, and my diet doesn't vary immensely day to day. I love to cook also, so being vegan allows for plenty of that, especially if I want cake or something. I'm not a big fan of sweets though. I prefer Nature's candy (fruit, lol).

I really like the idea of free range animals, and yeah I think that generally it's a good thing to support. I don't see how you can say that by buying milk, eggs etc. that you're not supporting the killing of animals - to me that's just the same as the average person view that the meat you buy is already dead.
Yeah. The milk industry directly supports the meat industry. Males are used as veal, and old milk cows are used as meat, too. Stuff like that, I don't really pay as much attention as one might expect. I go through "cycles" of being really AR crazy, and cycles of not caring so much, lol.
The reason I'm vegan is largely to show that it's not the killing of animals that I object to, it's the way they're kept. There are other reasons...it's quite nice imo to be unconventional too, not like in a way that just makes me feel 'different', but as in a sort of challenge, proving self control etc.
Sometimes I don't know why I'm vegan. I know why I became vegan, and I know why I continue to do it, but spouting out my specific reasons isn't that fun. Why do I care about all that stuff? I don't know. I'm weird. I value an insect's life as much as a humans. >.>I like to be different, too. Like "haha, I think for myself instead of shoving meat and lies down my throat like the rest of you!" But that's just blehhh.
It's hard to explain my reasoning, or absence of it, but I don't see myself changing my habits anytime soon.
Me neither, bro! Actually, I don't see me changing my habits ever. I honestly could never eat meat again. It baffles me when I find out that someone was vegetarian for a while, because for me, I don't see how one can go back once they've done it. Mystery to me, I guess.
