According to a recent study, vegetarians have confessed to eating meat after a night of drinking. VoucherCodesPro, a UK-based discount code provider, conducted a survey of more than 1,700 British vegetarians who revealed they chow down on meat when they drink too much alcohol. Don’t tell Morrissey about this!
It depends on how strict a vegetarian you are. Some stuff like soup might’ve been made with chicken stock, etc. I know some who ask the server, and make choices accordingly. Personally, aside from morals – the world is not going to end. I respect it, but have a hard time putting vegetarianism on the same level as those who have serious allergies/risk of anaphylactic shock. Or in my case – thrombosis (clots are only on the outside of the body) to drastically increase risk of heart attack, stroke, aneurysm.
Shrinking the size of plates, knives, forks and glasses could go some way towards tackling over-eating and obesity, a study suggests.
Smaller tableware was identified as having a positive effect on consumption habits, along with reductions in portion size and food packaging. Researchers found that reversing the current “super-size” trend could lower average calorie intake by up to 16% in the UK and 29% in the US – the land of huge helpings.
I’m sure that this will work for some, and when others get hungry because they’re eating less – going for seconds might prompt reflection. But it doesn’t for my cousin… Last time I visited, they served as much in a single sitting as I consume throughout the week.
