You're one of those irritating vegans (one of the many) that exclaim how they're vegan every few minutes. Know how I know? You're name is "im vegan". But selfishly I like chicken too much to give it up

Honestly, for me it's because I struggle with food in general anyway and imposing further restrictions on myself would be a really really bad idea. Maybe a few years down the line if everything sorts itself out I'd consider it, but tbh I don't think I ever will be in that position... I am trying to keep to a more vegetarian diet though where possible as I'm conscious of the environmental impact, I just haven't cut anything out completely.

It's boring
This evening I fried an onion, half a pepper, some mushrooms, some red kidney beans, and some pasta sauce, put it all on toast, and devoured it. It was ****ing delicious. Boredom is subjective, to be fair, but I bet if I'd served it to you, you'd also have found it ****ing delicious.

No offence but that sounds like one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever imagined eating

^ That sentiment is why parents make their children have ''no thank you'' bites. If you had tried it, you'd have loved it.

I don’t eat a huge amount of red meat but I do need extra calcium (can’t take supplements) so there’s certain things I need to eat and drink is the nice answer.
The truthful answer is that militant vegans annoy me and anyone who tries to force their beliefs on me is going to make me do the opposite. And I ain’t giving up my Nando’s for anyone!!!

I’ve tried red kidney beans (disgusting), onions (disgusting), peppers (meh) and mushrooms (equally vile) separately. Putting all these ingredients on toast and covering it in sauce won’t magically make them delicious

I can't do gluten. You're trying to kill me with that meal.

If we become vegan, then we are competing for plant based food with sheep (for example). I shoot the sheep eating my crops, what do I do with the Sheep? Might as well eat it. Pointless being a vegan, animals will still get killed and once they are killed I might as well make the most of it with a nice pie.

Sure, but it still would have been tasty! XD

Just put it on some kind of gluten-free bread I guess? Nothing else has gluten.

Meat is good for you if you stay away from processed meat and eat the real animal without all the chemicals they inject them with to help them grow faster though that is hard to find. I will never stop eating meat but I continue to make sure that I have a balanced and moderated diet which is the most important thing. You do not need to go on this vegen diet to live a healthier and happier life and I'm certainly never going to do it and I would ask you to stop forcing your agenda down on others because ultimately, this is a personal decision that the individual makes for their own personal benefit and not so that they can be part of some group.

I genuinely feel sad that we do kill animals and eat them but I still continue because its a habit / i have certain deficiencies. I don't think saying "there is nothing to eat" is an argument because there are loads of meals available on the web that are straight forward to follow. My boyfriend is an amazing cook and he also agrees with this.

In most places, people rely on fast-food or microwave food because it's cheaper, and believe it or not chickens can be easily bred and are placed in restricted places - most likely called intensive poultry farming. Being vegan relies on limited foods, where it's quite difficult to come by. That would also be not eating fish and eggs, and that contains quite a lot of protein. We need a balanced diet, and for most it can be hard to adapt it in a vegan-way. Most people I know who are vegans spend a lot of money and time researching and buying vegan items. I once bought vegan tortillas and they cost 6 pounds as opposed to non-vegan which was 2,50 pounds. There's also this marketing procedure where making foods with gelatin and sugar are addictive and tasty for many people, and they just got used to it and can't stop. So the transition is quite difficult as well.
