I guess I'm even more aware of food after agrimony's, ambar's, and flit's awareness of the food they're dealing with.

I've got a vegan niece who is coming in a few weeks, and it's going to be a real challenge to cook for her. I just can't imagine life without eggs, cheese, or milk. I have gone meatless for Lent before, just to see if I could do it, and it was relatively easy with a bunch of cheese, eggs, and cream (mm... ice cream); but I can't imagine being without any of those as well. Quite a few breads that I make all have milk or eggs in them for richness and keeping ability. Pasta has eggs in it...

And does honey count? It's food made by other living creatures for their own 'needs' that humans take and eat, much like milk, because people don't take so much of either that the species or even the immediate offspring suffers at all. So does a vegan not eat honey?

All of which is well off either agrimony's or flit's posts' subjects; but they're just the thoughts I thought in tangent.
