Flexitarianism 17/365

There's so much media attention being given to a vegan diet. Now I was a vegan and vegetarian for a few years so I feel I can say something on the matter
Being vegan in Ireland is not that simple and I don't necessarily agree with it from a health perspective. I believe people are enjoying to make their own judgement on the matter but in my humble opinion we should look to eating a local sustainable diet. What grows around you? What can you grow? How far has that had to travel?

Id love to know your opinion.
