  1. 1.How do you know for sure they are happy ? 2. What happens with the laying hens when they are no longer productive, are they killed ? 3. What do your friends do with the female chicks that are born from the eggs, but especially what they do with the male chicks ? In the industry most of the male chicks are killed in gaz chambers, put into a bag and crushed by a bulldozer, or in a blender and fed to their moms... Ha! There are 4 of them and they just run around in her backyard! They are so cute, I love them. My friend rescues cats, puppies, whatever, and fosters them... She's a great person. So I'm not worried about her gasing her chickens! She will keep them until they pass away from old age or whatever. They are not in the "industry". I probably should have made that clear from the beginning. I just realized I shouldn't have laughed, since it's very obviously not funny. I was just taken back by the blender and gassing remarks, since there are only 4 of them and all they do is run around her backyard and eat her garden all day long.

  3. Or at the very least, train like one? I'm trying to figure out if that is what I want right now. A few years ago, I had a trainer train me for a figure competition that was a year away... which was fine, had a bit of weight to lose and what not. But he started us (there was a group of mostly girls) on the diet you would do to cut for the competition. A year out. It was a crap load of meat and VERY little carbs. (this was when I was not vegan or even a vegetarian for that matter, so it was a lot of chicken and broccoli. SICK.) So loooong story short, the damn diet totally messed me up in the head, I quit (along with half the girls training, since we all went crazy at the same time!) and swore I would never do it again. But now I'm thinking.. I might want to. Especially since I'm now vegan, I feel like it MIGHT be a different experience. Or, at the very least, I want to train like one and get that look. Maybe not competition ready, but near there. With a bit more body fat. So that is why I'm asking... are you/did you train for a competition, or do you just like the look? Thank you!
  4. That salad sounds so good... I'm going to make that soon.
  5. Oh! That's a great idea... thanks!
  6. I actually had the same thoughts of you when I first went vegan, only it was regarding eggs from my friends chickens she had in the backyard. "Happy" chickens. But actually they really are happy. But then I thought about it, and ehhhh. I really wanted to be a true vegan. And then I really thought about what eggs were, and got kinda grossed out. Before I never gave it much thought! So anyway, basically I just wanna say I get what you're saying! But like others have said, there is a vegan cheese out there (Daiya) that is SO good... it really helps if you have any cheese cravings. Good luck!
