    Never fails to amuse me how many dieticians praise vegetarians and vegans. I just stuffed my face with a slice of lamb's liver and a giant mushroom fried in EVOO, grilled bacon and broccoli as a change from the runners. Previously this week I ate Gloucester Old Spot sausages with beans, chicken wrapped in bacon with MORE beans, smoked haddock with Arame and lashings of butter, prawn curry with multicoloured peppers, garlic, chillies, turmeric, cayenne, coriander, cumin and ginger and a few other things I've forgotten.

    To get that level of nutrition from vegetables and grains I'd be blowing off like a carthorse, quite apart from the effects on my BG, BP and lipids.

    Can't remember where I read it, but "modern diets leave us overfed and malnourished"
