Just that really!

I think if the world ran out of meat I might stop eating it, but I can't guarantee that.

You don't think veggie food is contaminated with meat?

I don't understand why anyone would not want to eat meat. Its apart of a natural diet plus it tastes good.
There is normally an air of smugness about vegetarians which is deeply unappealling.

As others have said, I make smart choices about my food and don't eat processed crap

In answer to the OP, nothing...

I'm really not bothered about the horse thing, I say this as someone who currently has Python and Kangaroo in my freezer.

We are all meat eaters in our house and love it.

I like to buy good quality meat, especially a nice piece of beef and yes I would eat horse meat if it tasted good and was free from any nasties.

Now where's that steak tartare I just prepared? wink

Now you see the thought of mechanically recovered meat does make me go a bit green - but then again there are few things in this world better than chewing on a lamb chop so I'm confused

Would you tell a Lion to eat vegetables or a rabbit to eat steak?

We are omnivores! YANBU to not eat meat yourself but VVVVVVVVVU to suggest that others shouldn't.

But to answer your question - if you can make a courgette taste like a sausage I might consider it...

I like pointing out my incisor teeth to any militant veggies...they ain't for tearing tofu you know.

ifancyashandy Wed 13-Feb-13 19:04:36

As others have said, nothing will stop me eating meat as I only buy / eat good stuff. Don't eat burgers and the like.

Now, back to my lamb curry (home made).

I think we should take a moment to seriously consider the OP's point - I personally am very concerned about the toxicity of the foodchain. I plan to start eating meat that I can be certain is free range and has only been fed a good quality diet that doesn't include other animals.

So I'm going to start eating vegetarians.

I am thinking of going back to the days where we grew our own veg in the garden so I know a carrot is a carrot and potato is a potato, I would also like to buy a pig as I adore bacon butties but would get attached to the pig, my only option is butchers or vegetables.

I can't eat chinese food as it might be cat.

No idea how I am going live anymore....

Oh and HAM??? How can anyone not like naice ham?

Butchers for me steak is better there anyway just more ££

Shit now I forgot what the OP was....

KeepingCalmAndPostingNicely Wed 13-Feb-13 19:08:24

Awesome post AF

"good for you, OP


now where did I lose that fuck I am supposed to give ?"

Let me know if you find that fuck - I think mine might be hiding out with it. grin

I like meat. Good meat isn't cheap, so we have smaller portions now. But ultimately, yum.

absolutmum Wed 13-Feb-13 19:10:14

Can't beat a nice rare steak, or a bacon sandwich!

You fucked a donkey off in 86,op???shock

That explains everything...

Sailormercury Wed 13-Feb-13 19:12:55

I will never give up meat. Ever.
Morrisey and Russel Brand are vegitarians, I don't really want to be like them.

I keep dipping into the book 'Not on the label'.

It raises questions about a lot of shite that we eat - not just meat.

I've been toying with the idea of vegetarianism for ages,and I have to say that these latest revelations have finally tipped me over into stopping eating meat.
