A night out. A real night out

With a group of friends!
Ok, no handshakes, but also no masks, and no social distancing.
Outside of course, in the never endingly cold winter of 2020/21, but hey it was like the Old Days.

I looked at the menu, and it all looked lovely. I thought it was because I’d not seen a menu for a year… but actually no it wasn’t that at all. After about 5 minutes I realised that it was because it had ‘ normal’ food , rather than the plant based diet that I’ve eaten for 6 months.
Well you can’t just totally ‘ uncondition ‘ yourself can you? I mean you still have the bodily and mental reflexes that eating a certain diet induces.
So I almost ordered fish and chips… until I remembered that that was my past, not my future. Of course fish and chips tastes lovely, certainly better than tofu with salad… 🤦‍♂️ but hey it would be definitely far less environmentally impactful if far more people made the decision to shift to mainly plant eating.
I can’t change the world, but I can make my own contribution, and encouraging you to shift a bit/ a bit more/ a lot more, so that our descendants aren’t living in a dead and poisoned galactic rock, with only video footage of David Attenborough talking about long extinct animals, fish and birds.

  2. I’ve been vegetarian since I was 12 – because I cared about animals as sentient beings and the way they were treated was an anathema to me … but I never talked about it because people took the piss out of me – NOW however – it seems to be SUPER fashionable ! So that’s a good thing ! Whether It’s because they care about the planet and the proportion of gas emitting mammals consuming the planet et cetera et cetera doesn’t really matter to me – if I can help one animal that doesn’t have to feel terrified that’s all I care about… sorry – but there it is –
