I've been vegetarian since I was 5 so I don't really get cravings. Occasionally I do but I think I've only given in to cravings a couple of times since then, so overall 13 years meat-free! It's a way of life now so it's normal for me. I do get pissed off when people ask me stuff like "How do you survive?". And I've had people shove meat in my face as well. People can be massive dicks.
I've been a vegetarian for two years now, but it was SO hard to start because being an only child, my Mum tended to make meals for Me, her and Dad. When I told her I was cutting out meat she exploded and told me I was getting obsessive and that animals are a food source etc...I can understand her opinion, but I was feeling sick at the thought of eating an animal or feeding money into an industry I didn't agree with. I'm a massive animal lover, and I tend to be one of these people that sees all creatures as equals, I think it's wrong for humans to keep chickens, pigs and cows in small spaces and breed them only to be killed. I don't have a problem with a viewpoint that people see them as a food source, but I definately DO NOT agree with the way animals can be treated.
I'm not a vegan though, but I do make sure eggs are free range, and I stay clear of cheese...
As for keeping on plan, I have developed a love affair with Quorn products. They've got a bad reputation I know, but stick some of their meat-free mince in a bolognese, and you wouldn't know the difference!
The one thing i miss IS NOT BACON. I hate it when people try and tempt me back with bacon, because I'm always like, ew. I hate bacon. The thing I miss most id Jelly Sweets. Weird, right? But the vegetarian sweets are nowhere near as nice as the sweets based on Pork Gelatin- namely, HARIBO.
