Not OK to preach to me

VEGANS: How can you tell if someone is a Vegan? Photo: Shutterstock

I AM a meat eater and I enjoy it, and to be honest I am getting a bit fed up by being attacked by my vegan friends.

Why do you think you are so much better than me? Why do you think it’s OK to preach to me?

If you don’t want to eat meat or fish or anything else that’s up to you and jolly good luck to you. But please stop preaching how healthy you are because you are a vegan. I have news for you – some of the food you are eating is not as healthy as you think.

I looked at vegan burgers which are full of processed fats like soya bean oil. Some contain MSG which is a terrible ingredient and which can give you night horrors. These ‘healthy’ burgers can also have thickeners like tapioca and gum in them. So I’ll stick to my wagyu burgers thank you.

The same applies with spreads – check what’s in them. I have to add here that if you are a vegan because of the concern for animals I do not have any argument with that. It’s just the ‘I’m healthier than you’ brigade. Another thing is ‘Oi Greggs’ – there is no such thing as a vegan sausage roll! It either is a sausage roll or it’s a pastry filled with ‘something’ but it’s not a sausage.

Since protein is scarce when you avoid animal products, soy products like edamame, tofu, soy protein powder, and tempeh are often the replacements. The reality is that soy protein is very difficult to digest, thyroid suppressive and estrogenic due to phytoestrogens.

It also contains high levels of phytic acid that cause less absorption of nutrients, as well as contains trypsin inhibitors that can interfere with digestion.

So that’s you told. I’m bracing myself for some serious rows about this. Here’s a question for you – How can you tell if someone is a Vegan? Don’t worry they will tell you.
