Fine. But never tell me you haven't been warned.
I've had discussions with vegans online and offline. I use to think like you but I've woken up.

Anyway, back to diet. You aren't a vegan, but an egg and fish eater.
So you get amounts of cholesterol, good protein, and good vitamins from fish.

One of my favorite things about Mahatma Gandhi is that he struggled with his diet. We all do! The book “Gandhi’s Search for the Perfect Diet” shows just how much Gandhi struggled. It explains why it was important to him, but it’s also a reminder that we’re all human and startlingly imperfect.

We’re imperfect by design, even when struggle to except it. It’s especially apparent when we strive for perfection. Everything is divine. You don’t have to feel guilty for being human (in this way anyway).

I think people need to realize that no matter what we do...life feeds on life in order to survive...and there are so many people that no matter what we do, we have an impact.

Take for instance the folks who drink almond milk hoping to help the environment. Sure, they're not contributing to dairy farming, but...they are consuming a product, most of which is grown in an area that hardly receives any rain...so water in large quantities must be diverted there while everyone tries not to burn down with the forest fires in the Summer.

So...what have they really accomplished with that?

And everything is pretty much the same. Even if you figured humans out of the equation...everything alive has to survive by eating something else that is alive.

That is the nature of nature.

Dairy farming, if organic, is great in cultured / semi-natural landscapes. I know multiple organic farmers and have seen their farms and land: Organic dairy farming is great. Also works in sync with protecting grassland birds.

Veganism isn’t the answer for the environment nor most people’s health. Organic dairy, eggs and chicken are good balanced (and protein and healthy fat) food options, all things (health, environment) put together.

The point I'm making is that maybe there isn't an answer for the environment, and maybe there is no way to make nature congenial.

I'm back on it full time despite falling off the wagon a bit myself.

I'm feeling so much more energized. But I am somewhat of a believer in the bloodtype system that Japan uses. It's mostly considered psuedoscience but it seems to apply to me.

Mostly fruits and vegetables and lean meats like fowl. I eat a fair amount of raw vegan food and some cooked vegan stuff and its pretty good.

Occasionally I'll snack on an unfrosted strawberry poptart (tech vegan) and arby's curly fries (also tech vegan) but otherwise, pretty healthy vegan.

I avoid processed foods 95% of the time.

The key for me to staying on it was finding a reason to do so that admittedly, benefited myself. Yes I am happy I am not supporting a cruel animal farming system, but when I work out I have so much more energy than when I don't. It's pretty interesting.
