I gave up meat and ate Fish for a few months last year. My daughter wanted to be pescetarian. Also felt bad about hurting animals etc. She gave up when she got offred BBQ pork ribs at a friends house lol!
Why not just eat the protein that you don't feel bad about? Adjust your diet to your own needs and just make sure your protein intake is high enough by adding beans, pulses, tofu or eggs.

Are you sure about that?

I once had a trout with no head or guts, flopping around in my sink. If it doesn't know it's dead, maybe it wasn't alive.

To quote Nirvana ' It's ok to it fish cause they don't have any feelings lol!'
Just told my daughter a small white lie since eating only veggies was a bit much even for me :)

Pretty sure, though since they are usually quite tasty I can overlook it.

So many people get freaked out about not getting enough protein. Does anyone know of anyone that has Kwashiorkor? I am going to say that I highly doubt it. That is what you get when you have a diet low in protein. And in order to get that disease, you would have to be malnourished. So I tell people to relax and eat all the good stuff (and yes I know there are unhealthy vegetarian/vegans) and your body will take care of the rest.

I am slightly anemic, but I have not changed my diet to add meat back into it at all. I still feel fine, I just can't give blood. I can live with that. And if I want I can add some iron supplements if I so choose. But protein is everywhere and in all foods. Your dark leafy greens can rival any steak out there and without all the fat and cholesterol and with all the good stuff to go with it, such as fiber. And lest we forget those super grains that are out there.

Another question : Is there natural vegan food which contains vitamin B12 and vitamin D ?
You can also use Nutritional Yeast. I use it on so many different things. And most folks who go vegan don't even have to worry about B12 for 3 years after doing so. By then you should have enough information to know what to do in your eating lifestyle.

I could not give up protein from meat--and I can't eat enough green leafy veggies to get my protein fix. Carbs are not my thing, but protein is. Yes, I do days where I get my protein fix from legumes, but I also have days where I crave meat. This mornings breakfast consists of 2 poached eggs, swiss chard, steamed barley with miso, and a BIG glass of veggie juice (tomato, celery, carrot, cucumber, parsley, kale). I eat mostly veggies, but still like my protein.
