The last few years has seen a massive surge in the number of Aussies adopting
a vegetarian lifestyle. Whether it’s for health, environment or animal
rights reasons, 2.5 million Aussies now eat either a vegetarian or vegan diet.
Do you think this is just a phase LiveTribers? Can you see a future where the
majority of people are either vegetarian or vegan? Would you ever give up

Hell No!! I Couldn't Survive lol I'm a Carnivore lol I Need Meat in my Diet!!
I like the flavour of cooked meat too much to change. But I often Look at
healthy horses and cows and wonder if they exclusively eat grasses and grains
they look pretty healthy. In truth us humans would probably be better being
vegetarian but a strong understanding of essential amino acids is very necessary
to avoid anaemia and protein related illness.
I’ve been vegetarian for 2 years. I dont miss meat. I find there are a good
range of products to replace meat that are very tasty. Vegan cheese is great
too. Also lentils are another great source of protein. I feel good in health &
I know I will never eat meat again.
I chose a vegetarian diet for all three reasons mentioned in the original post.
I became vegetarian as the concept of slaughtering sentient beings for food
became abhorrent to me. I’m healthy and very active on a plant based diet and
have started to focus on growing vegetables and fruits
for myself. I try not to think about what is happening to our planet or the
future our children face due to the destruction of the environment caused by
land clearing, intensive farming of animals and the monoculture crops to feed
them, water channeled from rivers and lakes to irrigate the mega farms and the
poisoning of the environment through the use of pesticides, herbicides and
chemical fertilisers. Then there’s transportation required to get crops and
animals to markets and beyond. It’s horrendous to think about, so I focus on
living in a sustainable manner as I can and live in hope people will realise how
much damage and suffering rampant consumption and consumerism is causing. If a
majority of people don’t switch to a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle then I
don’t think there is going to be much of a future.
It's hard to respect a diet that causes so much pain and suffering to animals. I
find it difficult to listen to meat eaters defending their right to indulge in
their choice of animal products when they are fully aware of the cruelty
involved. There is no way to justify the consumption of animals in this day and
age when there are so many alternatives available. The argument that animals do
not feel pain and have no real sense of self is out dated but people who chose
to gourge themselves still live by this false information to continue their
indulgence. Shame on you there is no excuse, absolutely none.
Isnt it a sad world to think some will dominate as a vegetarian and knock meat
eaters.I sure like to know what im eating as a takeaway and rarely do that
anyway prefer something frozen in latter.Im passionate in cooking and learnt old
school ways to being able to cook so maybe put the blame on how cooking in
public schools benifits one today re my son learning how to make a pizza on a
muffin to making custard out of a packet .I have no beef with a true vegetarian
as they really go to extremes to get all they need to replace meat.But respect
for either is the way to go and I like both for a change which makes ones diet
interesting and not boring.Cheers
The future is vegan - also for ethical/moral reasons & religious/spiritual
practice reasons. I'm currently fruitarian, used to be raw vegan & always
certified organic. In total, I'd have been what Americans call 'straight-edge
vegan' for 20 years. If you've been watching developments in recent years with
plant-based meats, these will be snuck in everywhere so nobody will tell the
difference. It's real easy with takeaways - nobody knows nor cares what's in
the stuff, so long as it's cheap and tastes okay. Pies, hot dogs, 'chicken'
nuggets - you name it, everyone will be vegan by force very soon. The wholesale
prices of dead animal flesh has sky-rocketed over the course of the pandemic,
especially in the USA. You didn't know nor care what was in your 'food' before;
now you'll be none the wiser. Besides, the world's richest 1% have planned for
the masses to go vegan for a long time as part of their agenda for us - and that
sort always get what they want. Always.
I personally think it is a phase, and I genuinely hope so too. Although I don't
eat meat every day, I cannot envisage a time when I would never eat it again. To
me it is the easiest way to get protein and unfortunately many vegetarian diets
contain vegetables that a dialysis patient is unable to eat - so where would
they get the protein that is so necessary for their long-time survival if not
for high protein foods like meat, and eggs.
Just another phase for latte sipping, smashed avo eating leftists to go through
while congregating at cafes making sure they are seen by the 'right people'.
Next week it'll be something different.
If God didn't intend for us to eat meat he wouldn't have made animals from it.
