to eat it or not to eat it?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Bacon. Im a vegetarian of 5 years now. Should I or shouldn't I?

I really really fancy some, but it's going to have to be cooked perfectly for me to enjoy it.

Or should I just assume its a craving im having and will go away when Im not pregnant? *In need of some unbiased help* :thumb: ta.

    Do you feel very strongly about being a vegetarian?

    I used too, but its a bit less tight now, i used to not eat ANY gelatine or anything, but now if I fancy a jelly sweet you can usually make me eat one. Only eat free range eggs and stuff though.

    Hmm tough one...

    Thing is, if you do have some bacon, yeah it'll take the craving away, but afterwards you'll probably feel like crap because you gave up 5 years of being a vegetarian just for one craving.

    Meh.

    Don't eat it. Simple.


    I haven't eaten bacon for years, although I like the smell of it. I know if I were to eat any I would be so annoyed with myself and in the end it would be such a let down, not what u expected

    Don't eat it. I love meat but you've stayed off it for a long time so I'd stay strong and not touch the stuff. You'll be glad later when the cravings go :)

    May be this thought will help you .. a friend in the fire service told me many firemen don't eat pork cos it smells just like human flesh when it's been burnt in a fire

    I've never eaten bacon in my life, or any other meat so I have no idea what I'm missing. If someone told me I ought to give up ice cream (for example) for health reasons and I had a craving I'd have to have it!!

    I think you should scoff a bacon sarnie.
    Just imagine that sandwich. White bread, toasted until a lovely brown colour, crunchy, but soft in the centre. The bacon, those reddish pink strips, glistening and peeking from the bread, and a dollop of thick, tasty, brown sauce covering the bacon. All sprinkled with a little salt and pepper to taste.
    Imagine sinking your teeth in to that. The taste of bread, crispy bacon, then brown sauce, flooding in to your mouth as you bite through it.
    Go on. Have one. You know you want to! :yum:
