Thread Name: BS: Veganism
Subject: RE: BS: Veganism
In my early to mid 20s when I was so skint I had to mostly eat
as if I was a vegetarian;
I became sufficiently informed on the pulse, grain, and nut
combinations which provided the full range of amino acids required to make up effective dietary protein...
Now that I'm facing up to retirement age with no pension or savings,
at least I can fairly easily fall back into that spartan lifestyle
if needs must..
I've already given up all dairy products, including my lifelong beloved Cheddar Cheese
due to health reasons...
Oh well, back to germinating beansprouts and alfalfa in the kitchen,
If I survive covid long enough...
Even though I don't want too, I could probably go vegan under the right circumstances..
Not for sanctimonious moral reasons,
but to cope with financial deprivations...
I have that kind of all or nothing personality,
and self discipline for tolerating forced reductions in variety of lifestyle.
