    Our challenge is being gf as well, but cheese is the easiest part. For us it's egg, the one thing I know my very underweight child will eat. But our actual main meals are vegan other than some weekend breakfasts or if we go out.

    YES!! Yeast flakes. I haven't had them in years since my dad was obsessed with them. Yum! I'm going to buy some.

    Do you guys mind if a non-understanding non-vegan asks a question? It is purely a question out of interest, nothing to do with any judgement or anything else. It's just that I don't know any vegans and it's something I have always wondered, which I am sure there is more information behind that I am not aware of.

    Why do vegans not eat cheese or eggs or milk? I understand that they don't eat them because they are animal bi-products, but as far as I understand it is very uncomfortable for a chicken to be egg bound for example, egg laying is a natural process for them. Milking cows are also uncomfortable if they are not milked.
    Is it for health reasons or is it more to do with the conditions in which the animals are kept and farmed?

    As I said, I ask this purely out of curiosity, consider it an opportunity to educate a non-vegan.
    Thanks

    I hope the vegans don't mind me asking, I'm not vegan any more but was for many many years. I read a book by Professor Jane Plant, she has a massive case against high dairy diets. Her story about her battle against breast cancer is quite amazing and the things she discovered about diet and her cancer.

    There is also environmental and also animal cruelty reasons.

    In short:

    - I don't see the need at all for animal products in our diet

    - The treatment of the vast majority of animals for food production is horrible and disgraceful

    - The environmental impact is HUGE

    So yes basically for health reasons and the way animals are treated. I can't view animals as a commodity, it doesn't make sense to me.

    What an awesome thread I'm a new vegan, I recently decided on becoming a vegetarian and then wanted to take the next step to veganism. I'm learning heaps, and also realising just how much the rest of the world consumes animal products...they're in so many things! Well I'm off to read the rest of the thread

    Is there any kind of vegan alternative to Milo? I can't believe it has milk products in it.
