    Albert Einstein

    Alyssa Milano
    Amber Valetta
    Andre 3000
    Annie Lennox
    Avril Lavigne
    Bob Dylan
    Boy George
    Brad Pitt
    Claudia Schiffer
    Deepak Chopra
    Leonardo Da Vinci
    Michael Jackson
    Natalie Portman
    Ringo Starr

    Personally I was a vegetarian once for a period of about 3 months a few years ago. I felt the healthiest then. Really 'clean' state of mind and quite zen actually, did'nt get easily agitated/angry etc, was really peaceful, happy and calm. You guys should try it sometime.

    Of course, I can't resist a good steak dripping with juices and foei gras and whatnot.
    Resisting - mind over body! where there is a will there is a way!

    one of my lunch kaki is a vegetarian , she got influenced by her hubby. so as times go by, im also eating lesser meat and partly she told me animals' DNA clashed with that of ours and i think she has lovely skin (very radiant, glowing & reddish). however she did warn me that when eating vegetarian food, try to skip those with artificial flavourings/glutton/MSG as those would be bad for health instead.

    she taught me a way to go vege(tarian) : go economical stall , order non meat dish like toufu (strict vegetarians would not take as toufu has eggs) and mostly vegetables. but only bad thing is, you have to take proteins supplements as meat is the main source for proteins required by our bodies. many vegetarians have a tendency to have overdosage of carbo instead

    DNA clashed jus like eating fellow beings?

    JFI,
    I get my proteins supplements from Soya bean, beancurd n etc... iirc the proteins in beancurd are more then those in meat.

    As for having overdosage of carbo

    Nowadays there are not much mock meat made of glutton onli the vege char siew n mock duck meat u find in the vege bee hoon. and a few more types.... as for the rest abt 90% of the mock meat most of them will be made of soyabean, beans' fibre or mushrooms......

    Toufu have eggs? Pls help enlighten me thks! ... to my knowledge onli those tube toufu yellow in colour got eggs not the white ones the are just plain soya bean dats all beancurd same!
