Apparently KFC fry their chips in the same fryers as the chicken, so if you are vegan/veggie and still want to go to KFC be aware of this.

Well, a lot of animals die and have their bones ground up for fertiliser to grow the stuff anyway. And that's before you get onto the cute little fluffy ones that unfortunately find themselves in the same field as a great big harvesting machine.

That's why we're having the mash and beans

The fries are done in the same fryer as the "popcorn chicken" not the pressure fryers that the pieces and wings are done in. But still, yeah, not veggie/vegan friendly at all.

Veganism will DESTROY all the dear farm animals.

More avocado, BE!

Full on veganuary is too hard for me with cooking for family but I'm trying to eat vegan when possible. I haven't eaten meat for a while now, but I do still eat fish. Am cutting out cheese, bread, milk and sugar from next week to see if it helps with weight loss/gut health this month. My stomach definitely prefers that I don't eat meat.

Thing is if one is going vegan for ethical reasons, there are better foods than avocados. Not that I can claim any moral superiority there.

butterflyeffect - 03 Jan 2020 18:18:41 (#89 of 530)

Nah, not ethical, just lactose-agnostic and in need of a jump start to cook more varied stuff and try and eat healthier. Avocado-a-go-go!

KFC didn't have any vegan burgers left (they said)

#88 sounds a little trumpian. Hovering in the background, I can hear,"I eat only the best foods."

Catspyjamas17 - 03 Jan 2020 19:19:34 (#92 of 530)

You can get non-Mexican avocados, and while they need a lot of water to grow, it's still only a fraction of that used when producing meat.

limegreen - 03 Jan 2020 19:28:49 (#93 of 530)

#91 I said I made no claims. I eat a moderate amount of meat (try to buy free range, but by no means always) and dairy. And love an avocado.

Catspyjamas17 - 03 Jan 2020 19:38:44 (#94 of 530)

Chocolate also needs loads of water to produce *sad face*

limegreen - 03 Jan 2020 19:50:02 (#95 of 530)

I never eat chocolate! As if!

(I eat far too much chocolate)

#865. Ad hominem.

Although Latin lessons and philosophical consistency ended before you were born, at least you have Google Translate on your phone, snowflake.

darkhorse - 03 Jan 2020 22:32:19 (#97 of 530)

I await post #865 with interest.

carterbrandon - 03 Jan 2020 22:42:44 (#98 of 530)

Vain much? You'll write it.

I heard the other day the numbers of animals not killed last year because of the shift towards veggies omissions but couldn't find an online link to it. Over a million cattle for example, iirc.

I am doing veganuary, just started the day off with a lovely cashewccino, fully on with plant milks now just a shame that vegan cheese is dreadful.
