Hey and fanx u for welcoming me. My dad raised all three of us as veggies, and I'm so glad he did, people r always saying-'well I think that's cruel that ure mum n dad forced Vegetarianism onto all three of u'-it drives me n my sister maddddddddddddddddddddddddd so we always say back-'well it's just as cruel as ure mum and dad forced u to be a meat eater ain't it' and then they shut up-lol!
I'm not sure about whether he gets injections or not, I don't ever hear about him getting them so maybe not ahy!!!
I'm always talking to my bf about when we have kids what we guna do-well 2be honest I've made my mind up and I have told him-I'm raising my kids up as veggies too, my dad said we veggies till we 16 then it is up 2 us what we wanna eat but if u turn to meat u cannot eat it in my house which I think is totally fair, my brother much to our disssapointment turn to meat but me and my sister r still going strong-BUT Veganism has always been something in my mind, and lately I was thinking about being Vegan, well I eat no dairy through the week anyways just because of the healthy diet I eat, I just had a treat day on a Sunday which would include milk chocolate etc, but I have never drank milk or had on my cereal as my mum n dad brought us up on Soya Milk so it's not a big issue but anyways to cut a story short-lol I have now been Vegan for 6whole days and now on my treat days I'll have sommat else-sorry I blabbed on a bit there didn't I-lol, well I know for a fact I'm guna bring my kids up as Veggies but also give them soya milk and try and introduce Vegan chocolate and treats, I knew all this from the age I knew about kids! I'm guna be brought up the way I was, we always had a healthy meal, was always given fruit on the way home from school instead of a choccie bar or sweets-I find it so irritating the way mums n dad bring there kids up these days and the way they take there kids to Mcdonalds about twice a week, and I hate seeing babies in there, there too young in my mind to be eating all that fat! But that's just me and my healthy ways-lol, probably boring to other people but I want my kids to have a long life not cut short coz of all the fat and cholesterol from fatty foods and meat and I think my dad wanted the same! My dad is my hero in a way, what he eats I will eat because I know it is safe!
Have u ever heard of Dr Mcdougall? Well that is the diet I follow with my dad, it prob.a little extreme to others because it cuts out all oils and fats, because all u really need is the natural fats and oils from the foods we eat-his website is-www.drmcdougall.com
although I have read that this man has been caught out I restaurants eating meat on occassion-tut tut tut.
I'm not as strict as my dad, I do have my treat days, which will now be dark coccie and vegan ice cream-yay-lol, but my dad has the mcdougall treats which I have to admit r yummy!
Well I think I have blabbed on now a little too much-lol. Sorry to have bored u-lol! Take care.
