Any overweight person's going to feel better if they lose a few pounds. Going vegan's an extreme measure though. What was the "eye opening" bit?

well for me it made think more about what I eat, like I had a sausage in batter recently and it was delicious but what did it consist of and maybe eating some fruit instead...

Surely you know that sausages're full of rubbish, unless you make them yourself, but it doesn't usually prompt folk into becoming vegan. We all cheat now and again - or simply eat/drink what we fancy. It's not the end of the world.

See? You ate a battered sausage!!

And the answer's no. We don't eat any sausages now.

We don't - unless they're home-made. You ought to try my home-made organic steak burgers - you wouldn't get anything like that at McDonalds, and I know exactly what's in them.

I always have .....

"There’s been a tremendous amount of controversy over McDonald’s burgers since celebrity chef Jamie Oliver demonstrated how meat scraps and sinew are spun in a centrifuge and “washed” with ammonium hydroxide, which has also become known as ”Pink Slime.“ This chemical is used in fertilizers and cleaning products. According to Oliver it is used in 70 percent of ground beef in the United States but does not require inclusion on ingredient lists because the US Department of Agriculture classifies it as a “process” not an “ingredient” even though residues of this process are left behind in the meat consumed. He says, ”Basically, we‘re taking a product that would be sold in the cheapest way for dogs, and after this process, is being given to human beings.”
