Japan is the land of sushi and fish stock so at first vegans and vegetarians may be concerned. But there is no need to worry. Vegan food is known as Shojin Ryori - the food of the monks. With a little research, it's possible to find restaurants and ryokans that will feed you sumptuously from Tokyo to Kyoto and even in remote ryokans in Shikoku.

You have probably heard this joke. Question: 'How do you know if someone is a vegan? Answer: They will tell you in five seconds. And it is true from my experience once you go vegan you have an energy rising up inside of you wanting to scream; "I am vegan and it's really great!".

It's hard to believe that you don't need flour, milk or refined sugar to create a lovely, light and kid-approved pancake. Although delightful, don't be expecting your run-of-the-mill carb-filled pancake. These have more of an eggy crepe-like texture, which is equally appealing.

It's sugary, creamy, and decadent and because it's loaded with way too much sugary processed junk, it leaves you feeling a little bit ashamed, sad, and slumping after your sugar high of eating a whole pie.

There is so much talk nowadays about the need for things to be "healthy" gluten free this and sugar free that which lends a great hand to the South East Asian cuisines where the food is "healthy" already without meaning to be, without trying to be, without any sacrifice or disguises.

Halal Is Not the Problem and CCTV Is Not the Answer

It's much easier to feel outraged about animal suffering when it's somebody else's fault and somebody else who needs to change their behaviour. Which is one of the reasons why this story has given renewed vigour to campaigns to remove religious exceptions to stunning and for mandatory CCTV in slaughterhouses.

There are so many questions you'll be asked once you go vegan - most of them ridiculous. Apparently, going vegan means you're instantly more likely to end up on a desert island and be faced with having to kill and eat something to survive. And yes - I would kick to death a Shetland pony if it was threatening me and my family and I'd exhausted all other options of compromise.

The risk of early death is 40% lower in people consuming more than seven portions of fruit and vegetables a day. Vegetables are especially important, and some studies show that raw vegetables (salads) are particularly protective. The lower risk of early death is primarily due to a lower risk in heart disease. Vegans typically also have lower body weights, lower risk of developing Type II diabetes, and they experience other health benefits.

Animals of both sexes suffer under institutionalized exploitation. However, the female of the species often experiences more prolonged abuse, including an ongoing cycle of forceful artificial insemination (mechanical or manual rape), physical abuse of her mammary glands, and invariably being separated from her young; all of these are emotionally brutal experiences for the female members of any species.

I arrived in London on the Friday afternoon and caught up with one of Otto's dads. He filled me in on Otto's new routine, changes in Otto (Otto's got a bad eye, thanks to the mass of rumpled skin there. He's awaiting surgery). Otto's developed a new muscular physique.
