Vegetarian Means Vegan, Right?

Actually vegetarians tend to differ from what Vegans consider themselves to be. The exact reasons for why, evade me at the moment.

I eat plenty of vegetables but also enjoy eggs so I think this means I may be a vegetarian but I am not a vegan because eggs are not on their menu. I need to watch my calories and weight.

Veganism, if I may, seems to be more like a religion than just a healthy eating regime. I think the term is applied to not only eggs but even to wearing things that may have once been alive, like leather.

I have no feelings on this one way or another and think our life choices are just that, our life choices.

Coffee Pod Machines

By Deirdre Branwen

A single cup coffee maker is the most popular machine that is used in the home. Brewing your own coffee at home gives you that authentic cafe taste without resorting to an expensive set up. These days coffee makers are very affordable and come in a range of styles.

The single cup machine is highly popular as it is low maintenance. They are also very easy to use even if you've never used a coffee machine before. They are closed system machines which means that you can only use the type of coffee that comes with the machine. However if you regularly drink the one type and prefer it, that won't be an issue.

Douwe Egberts and Nespresso both manufacture a popular single cup coffee maker. A Nespesso machine will require that you use Nespresso coffee in it, and the same goes for a Douwe Egberts machine.

Being so easy to use is undoubtedly the top reason for these single serve machines' popularity. Being limited to one brand of coffee doesn't bother most people.

But if you want to work around that limitation, some manufacturers have instructions you can get on making your own pods. At first this was considered to be piracy, so the industry didn't like it, but now they realize that it just increases their sales and ability to compete. Senseo are the top manufacturers for custom pods. In their brewer, you can use any kind of coffee you like, thanks to pod makers and coffee ducks.

A novice is able to brew a terrific cup of coffee by using a single cup coffee maker. With these machines you will have a no fuss, gourmet cup of coffee without all the mess and machine maintenance. Best of all, you will save money brewing your own coffee and not paying the exorbitant prices at the local coffee shop.
