I'm a vegetarian, going on a year now.  I have been hearing about it from various sources, however after watching Game Changer by Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger I decided to try it for a month.

I was skeptical at first, but what a difference!  Using running as a performance base, I documented distance and MPH and it really did make a difference.  I constantly crave potatoes though, so any kind of Keto diet is off the table lol.

There is no such thing as "vegetarian chicken", right? Asking because I asked for vegetarian once and got told I could eat a chicken breast because that specific chicken was vegetarian chicken. I'm assuming they understood I wasn't requesting the animal itself had been vegetarian.

What? There are products that are vegetarian and emulate chicken, but actual flesh is by definition, not vegetarian.

Made me feel like I had some gap in my knowledge.

Too add to the thread, I was a sleepwalker at a young age.

Through work I met a vegan who would order baked potatoes and top them with salsa instead of butter. Really good substitute. His nickname was Veggy Rex.

Curious fact I prefer physical copies of books,movies & music over digital.

Since non-meat diet is in discussion, has anyone ever done foraging? I've picked an ate plenty of an unknown type of wild strawberry and also something called a thimbleberry. I've not had the courage to try mushrooms, though I have a book on identifying ones you can eat.

We do a lot of foraging  :) The best rule of thumb for starting with mushrooms is to forage for something that’s absolutely unmistakeable, like oyster mushrooms. They keep quite a while in the fridge and are well dispersed in temperate climates.

Did a lot of urban foraging as a poor student, I knew where all the easily accessible public or wild fruit, herbs, bay leaves etc were in the area.

These days I have a garden so most things I'd want to forage I just walk out into the yard for.

Have you known that it's Christmas today in Ukraine ?  Yep, there's two-week gap between your Christmas and mine

Oh yeah, now I remember you talking about that. Was it when I've threatened to start nuclear war over something Huggs said ?  ;D

It's interesting  because (at least it seems that way for me) where it's celebrated on 25th of December people spend most of their energy on Christmas and New Year is not that important. But here's New Year comes first and is more awaited than Christmas . Our Santa or as we call him, Grandpa Frost comes on New Year. Also, here Christmas is considered to be more of a religious holiday and it being the date of Christ's birth is more emphasised
