    So I'm thinking about giving my diet a major overhaul this year and going veggie again. I have a few reasons behind this but I was wondering what you lovely lot think about going veggie and the veggie diet overall?

    Ok, eat grass!

    I hope it works out and helps your health. I do mean that, but I simply believe meat is an important part of our diet.

    I think it's a difficult thing, but it is a good one, however know a few staple recipes first and do your research. Plus talk to Abbs about it, ideally you want to be cooking one meal that you both can eat, instead of two separate ones

    I do wish you the best in this, and I am sure you can do it.
    I personally love eating meat, but that said: I've cut it down by like 40 to maybe 50% over the last ten years.

    The veggie diet can be unhealthy too, cheesy chips are veggie but if you only had those it wouldn't be a healthy diet!

    Except yours was better, as I just had mine with gravy and undercooked it! That's what I get for trying something new when I'm in a rush
