The 'V' Word

Advantages: Low cholesterol, and you get your five fruit and veg easily.
Disadvantages: None

A personal choice is not a challenge

Advantages: See op
Disadvantages: See op

“Meat eater and proud of it?” That was the original name of this category, and I felt compelled to write in it. Why? Well, I’m neither. I don’t eat meat, or fish, or anything that comes directly from an animal, such as rennet or gelatine, but I’m not ...
