    Enjoy the better cuisine. My Mrs has at last realised that she is viewed as imaginative and talented when she cooks vegetarian for me and prefers it to seared flesh.

    I did have concerns that I would find it difficult to get enough variety and flavour from the inevitably more limited range of vegetarian dishes and would end up lapsing, but you’re right, I have been pleasantly surprised by the range of options and the dishes I’ve had so far are anything but bland. Quorn is also a far better product than the cardboard meat substitute it was when it first came out, which helps. One week in and not missing the meat at all so far...

    Do you use a leather sofa, wallet, shoes or anything made from animal skin?

    Good for you. Incidentally, whilst I have been thinking about becoming a Vegetarian for a few years, it was an image I was shown of a factory farmed piglet in horrific conditions that spurred me to finally make the move. Pigs in blankets is certainly the last thing I would now eat having seen that image.

    My Mrs is getting quite inventive lately. Wrapping stuff up in a flakey pastry to make it look and smell like a Greggs pasty. Her vegetable lasagne is superb. The only problem I find is that as it tastes so good I keep wanting more. You ought to try Indian recipes which are very tasty and not as bland as traditional English ideas of vegetarianism.
    Have a go at deep fried Cauliflower or aubergine in batter, they're my favourites.

    Good luck, it's quite hard, I managed about 8 years until Steve nagged me to make 'one of my curries' the other day and i had some, I'm losing control... :nope::hehe:

    I’ve only just switched mate, so sure, I currently have those things, but I’m taking things a step at a time and this is the first. You’re right though, my decision was made on the grounds of animal welfare, so it would be hypocritical to give up eating meat but continue to buy leather products for example.

    I've maintained for many years that meat eating should be licensed to those who have killed and gutted an animal.

    Cheers for the tips. :thumbup: Mrs. Smellons has always preferred vegetarian stuff so is pretty well versed with recipes, but I think you’re right about Indian recipes - probably due in part to their Hindu culture. I had a Vegetable Biryani once which was one of the best Indian meals I’ve ever had to be fair. Can’t wait to try deep fried Aubergine!

    I don't eat much meat any more. Them videos of abattoirs and farmed chickens, pigs and the rest will put you off. Miserable lives ending in violent death.

    Cheers. :thumbup: Easy way to try and solve your problem - use Quorn in said curry and see if Steve notices..if he doesn’t, then job done!

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. The best curry I've ever eaten was from the Vegetarian Food Studio on Penarth Road. The place isn't much to look at inside or out, but the food is incredible and it's a proper family run affair.

    Ps. They also do takeaways.

    That’s always been the thing in the back of my mind motivating me towards giving it up. It was never a health thing for me, but I hear that there are benefits from eating a strictly plant based diet?

    Question for any long time vegetarians - do you need to take any supplements to replace proteins etc that the body requires and would have been provided from meat?

    Vegetarian food makes your ears dry out and flake like a walrus.

    That video of the chicks going through a mincer made me hungry.

    I mean, made me reconsider my meat eating opinions.

    You forgot to mention using a bigger toothbrush for those teeth.
