You can get vegetarian gelatine free jelly. I eat that. It tends to be sweeter than normal jelly but its ok mum made the xmas trifle with that so I could eat it.
Thats good. Trifle, in the words of Homer '.....It just tastes so good...mwhaaaah...'

yep she's insane

no really, the thing i hate most is half assed veggies who eat fish or only eat meat once a month or something. They just do it for whatever status they think it brings, not out of principle
I have been a vegetarian for a few years now. My reason for becoming vegetarian was that I was dusgusted at the way animals are treated in factory farms. I have recently started eating fresh fish, as long it does not come from a fish farm. A fish living in the ocean lives a full natural life, and if it wasnt caught for food by humans, it would eventually be eaten by another predator... thats just the way the it is.

I'm a veggi cos basically I'm picky and just don't like meat, although I tried to test whether I did like it still but couldn't bring myself to it cos it was weird to think I was eating what was once a living creature.

Have been since 12 so I guess I'm one of the teenage-veggie-converts. My boyfriend keeps begging me to try meat. But I just don't want to. Leave us be!

I saw a strawberry yoghurt in Safeways the other day which stated that it was “NOT SUTIBLE FOR VEGITARIANS” … some sort of genetic mutation or is it just a new flavour of a hunk of beef in the middle …
it'll have some freaky stuff in it. SOme bacon crisps are suitable for veggies but cheese and onion arent go figure.

It probably contained gelatine to help it set. Muller Light yoghurts do, so avoid them if you're a veggie!

Variety is key, I cant imagine being a veggy, especially given that they taste like ****.

ive never tried eating a vegetarian

seriously, you find vegetarians lack variety in their food? try being vegetarian for a week - you'll find that you end up eating new things rather than a rotation of fish, burgers and sausages. if you miss the taste of meat, there are substitutes which are getting more authentic all the time.

I've never seen the justification for vegitarianism to be honest, so i'm not.

I have 2 sister who just ''out of the blue'' became vegetarians. It is so annoying b/c my mom has to make them a special veggie meal when we ever we eat. And whenever we go out to eat they get salads! they could just not come at all and eat the greens at home!
