Q

From a previous answer you said you love Thai food, but have recently decided to stop eating animal derivatives. Do you have trouble getting Thai food that is not cooked with fish sauce? I do :-(

I love fish sauce.

I only chose to stop eating animal derivatives for nutritional reasons; animal fat and protein, I learned, is difficult to digest and the last two weeks of eating only plants seems to confirm this.

I'm conscious not to get caught up in any kind of dietary dogmatism and as fish sauce contains no [or very little] animal fat or protein I'm ok with it.

This may change, however. As time passes I am finding myself less and less tolerant of the idea of consuming other creatures' bodily fluids.
