I went vegan for 16 months, almost died from a lack of iron.  Which was a bit odd, as the woman I was dating at the time had been a vegan for over a decade and didn't have a problem.  Turns out, I can't process plant-based iron compounds very well.

I still have two vegan cookbooks, which have great recipes from around the world and not a single fake meat in the lot.

For health and environmental reasons, I've been trying to go meatless three days a week. I found out I'm a touch anemic. Iron supplements upset my stomach. I think I'm going to work out some portion controls.

Of course, a new barbecue joint just opened up near me. I'm a sucker for good soul food.

As a chef, it gets real hard to be vegetarian if you have to rely on others to taste stuff for you. Plus, animals are tasty.

Smokers love "flavour country" too, but we as society decided that we were no longer going to condone nicotine addiction.

Same thing will eventually happen with animal flesh consumption. It's far too wasteful and damaging to the environment to be sustained in the long term. You can't stop what's coming.

I go meatless part time. Between meals, mainly.

This.

I have tried plant-based burgers. They taste okay, but an hour later I have some serious GI shiat goin' on.

I have HHT and going meatless isn't a option. Even if you take slow release Iron pills, that shiat farks with your stomach

Eat what you want.  In my mind it is foolish to deny yourself the option of great flavors.  Is life truly worth living if you can't have bacon from time to time? Or steak? Or brisket? Or turkey? Or salmon? Or shrimp? Or crab? Or (insert animal here)?

If you want to go vegetarian or vegan, great for you?  Just don't deny me the opportunity to eat what I want if I am able to afford it.

You know what goes well with vegetables? Meat and cheese.

Being vegan is great if you just eat a steak once a week.

The classic "those stupid vegetarian dumdums are always bothering ME ME ME" line from overly sensitive macho carnivores. Fact of the matter is that we mostly don't care about you at all. Now get over it and stop worrying about what we eat.

Bacon is the gateway meat
