Good one, Warri. :icon_biggrin:

There was a theory that humans evolved more quickly once fire became common, as they then ate more meat.
But another theory is that fire enabled them to roast root vegetables like yams, turnips, beets, garlic, carrots, onions, parsnips, carrots, rutabaga, sweet potatoes, releasing all their minerals, which should get the credit. :icon_biggrin:

I stand corrected - herbivores eat ONLY plants while carnivores eat ONLY meat but humans are certainly omnivores

I tried a vegan diet and found I did notget that bloated feeling, my blood pressure improved, I defintely lost weight and very very significant for the first time in years I got sugar readings below 7.
The negative I got bored. A vegan diet for me was very on the fourth week.

Try vegetarian instead. There are different types of vegetarianism. I'm assuming the least restrictive. You can eat eggs, cheese, and, if you're a semi-vegetarian, fish and poultry.

I am an omnivore.
I would like to be a vegetarian.
I would hate to be a vegan.

Especially in our sunset years when other pleasures pale, food is our one great pleasure left to us in life, so my attitude is to eat what I like and like what I eat.

Just home from a few days in the Port Stephens area. Had one of the best porterhouse steaks ever. It was about 2cm thick,and just oozing with juicy flavour.

I'm not a steak eater unless it's really tender.

Sorry, couldn't resist. Even moderate intake of red meat raises cancer risk, study finds
I believe they have been saying things like that for,at least,as long as I have been enjoying my daily quota of meat. Barbecued,apparently,is the most dangerous,which was how I had my melt in your mouth porterhouse.

Me neither. I prefer lamb, it seems most chefs can get it right. But my supplied dinners can vary immensely from one plate to the next, because when cooking for a large number of people, the meat supplied doesn't come from just one animal.
