I live in Flanders and although I can't speak very much Dutch, I know the word for veal which is "kalfvlees," very similar to the English "calf flesh" which is of course exactly what it is. (Vlees is the word for meat.)Originally posted by MsRuthieB
'flesh foods' ... I like that....I think I'll be weaving that one into my vocabulary
I hadn't thought about it too much, but you raise an interesting point. People eating meat at a table with a known vegan will automatically get pangs of conscience without the vegan even saying a word.Originally posted by skylark
They have tended to eat less meat since I've been a vegetarian, but it still comes up sometimes. My six year old sisters sometimes still think I am incapable of eating meat, not realizing that it's a choice I made.
