A couple of months ago I gave myself the green card to eat meat without a guilty conscience, as long as I didn’t overdo it and remained┬áresponsible. You see, the problem that occurs with anyone who thinks about something too much…well they tend to overdo it a bit, and in the wrong direction. In theory, […]

So you think you’re a good person, right? A decent member of this society? You don’t commit crimes, you wave to your neighbour, provide for your family, volunteer, and you may even recycle most of the time. Well you sound pretty tops to me, but let me point something out to you. I want to […]

After a little dino humour on Tuesday, it is now time for the serious topic of the week. Trust me when I say that I hate writing about these things, because it, yet again, is another inconvenient truth. The good news is that it reminds me why I started writing this blog in the first […]

So after a rather ambitious evening last Sunday, whereby I declared that I would write 3 posts per week…well…I failed. I think I may have been just a bit overzealous. A bit. So we are going to have to settle with one for the moment as the weather is stunning and I have 4 acres […]

Sunday Confessions Last week, as you know, I hit a few bumps and potholes. What I’ve learned in doing something like this, is that despite having changed our minds, changing our habits is a bit trickier.

I find that sausage happens to me unexpectedly and when I’m at my weakest. It can happen anytime of the day, from first thing in the morning to after a late night out at the club. I had three social gatherings in this last week, and I was offered sausage at each one. I said […]

I’ve been avoiding this topic simply because I don’t want to face it myself…because it is inconvenient and confronting. The topic of dairy. I’m not sure how many of you actually understand what it means to eat dairy. I didn’t for a long time. If you are a vegetarian who consumes dairy, it is almost […]

Sorry folks, but today I am going to turn the volume down on the humour, and focus on something which I believe to be pertinent to the discussion on ethical eating. We all have heard by now the story of the beautiful baby #giraffe, #Marius, from Copenhagen Zoo, that was recently euthanised and fed to […]

I believe the title of this blog sums me up in a nutshell. A bit of a smartass? Yes. In addition to that, I tend to make up my own rules in life, and I detest being pigeon-holed into a category of people simply based on what they eat. Does it say something about a […]
