My friend Philippe was telling me all about Iguanas.
Apparently they begin life as carnivores, then almost at once turn veggie. They need that extra initial protein just to get them going.
It seems to me that humans (and most other animals) really should be the same; high protein food is essential at birth (mother's milk), but this soon becomes unnecessary and a plant based diet should take over.
I'm not an advocate for a meatless diet, but we do eat veggie several times each week. I like to classify myself as a part-time veggie. Is that allowed?
N.B. My mate Philippe runs a gardening business; he is also a very good sculptor. He's in the middle of 'single-handedly' building himself an impressively grand house, his stone wall building work is staggeringly beautiful. A real craftsman.
