    Vegetarianism, Veganism or Carnivorism!?

    Hello together ,

    I´ve searched for a topic about that matter but I haven´t found one. So I´ll start it (If I´ve overseen such a thread...please have mercy with me!*g*).

    Okay...I´m curious about the attitude towards meat within the Skadi Community. Do you eat meat? Are you a vegetarian!?? Or do you don´t eat meat and reject even milk-produkts (veganism)?

    And why do you like/dislike meat? Because of ethic reasons? Reasons of taste? Or is it ideology - like "straight edge" or something like that!?

    Please vote, I wonder about the result!

    Well, to me: I definately like meat. I grew up with very different rustical meat-meals, and they are very tasty. I eat all kind of meat (excluding dogs, cats, horses and so on, of course...self-explaining), but I prefer cow, pork/pig, chicken, deer, etc. Very tasty is chamois, it´s even better than roast venison. *g* Sadly it´s seldom to get and quite expensive.

    Even if I´m a carnivore, I don´t want so see how the animals are getting slaughtered.
    I attach importance to the kind of meat: Mass products from at least particularly dirty slaughterhouses dont have my primary preference. So I prefer to buy my meat directly from farmers or from ecological retailers. It costs a little bit more, but it´s worth the quality. I just want meat from whose I know "These meat belonged to an animal which was treated fair and lived in an acceptable enviroment until it´s death."

    Sv: Vegetarism, Veganism or Carnivorism!?

    There is no doubt that man is made to eat meat. Hunting/gathering is our nature.

    As I can see you are from Iceland. Close to you, on Greenland, lives a people that prior to their "westernisation" lived on meat and fish alone. There has been few people on earth beeing more healthy than theese your neighbours, the Inuits.

    Stick to your meat - avoid bread, rice, pasta and potatoes! This will keep you lean and healthy!

    Re: Vegetarism, Veganism or Carnivorism!?

    I think there had been the same topic some time ago but the questions is still very interesting because sometimes behaviours change a little bit.

    I used to be vegatarian for years and for a short time period I used tb be eat vegan but after some time I realised that it was damaging my health. Like in most of the other things you just have to find the straight H - ah sorry middle...

    Now I nearly eat everything what used to be an animal except dogs...

Daß er aufsteigt von dort als das gewaltige Verlangen der Menschen, frei zu sein, frei von fremder Herrschaft, und sich nach eigener Art selber zu regieren! Herbert Hoover

    But meat is a big part of my diet, actually even the main part. I eat it because of two reasons. The first is simply the taste and that there's nothing except dark choclate that I like so much but I also need it to get rid of my hunger. Carbs of any kind hardly drive away my hunger - I need proteins and only eggs would be a bit monotone. I like most kinds of meat. Pork, beef, veal, chicken, duck etc I like everything if it's good so eventually I'm a carnivore for sure.

    I don't avoid meat, but I don't seek it out unless I'm sick or it's really cold or something.

    I could never live without dairy products, though.

    Incidentally, I know a lot of vegans claim that even honey should not be eaten, since it exploits bees.

    For my part, I've never understood a philosophy that treats all animals, even insects, as being more worthy of our care and protection and humanity than any plant. Plants are just as alive as animals, and just deserving of respect. Killing any innocent creature, plant or animal, should be done with respect. So eat bread respectfully; and eat steak respectfully.

    Re: Vegetarism, Veganism or Carnivorism!?

    I eat meat as part of a diet I see as normal, except I live off of pasta, which explains the carbohydrate excess and subsequent lack of energy...anyways!

    I have no problem with vegetarianism. Veganism does seem a little silly since you have to go out of your way not to eat/use something that is basically a byproduct of the animal's existence, in nature or captivity. So just buy "organic" or "cruelty-free".
