Vegans are over the top pedants. Not drinking milk, eating cheese etc, that has to be bad for you.
I've always been vegetarian, and while I'm as fit as anyone else who takes the same exercise (I can run as far and as fast as others), I never seem to build up muscle when weightlifting. I have to exercise "properly" by swimming or running or cycling etc.
No wonder you fall off your bike, try going round them.
I eat what I find tasty.
What lives in the sea, and goes dah di dah dit, dah dah dit dah?
A morse cod.
As far as aerobic exercise I do as well on a vegetarian diet as not,
possibly a little better with more carbs. It's just the weights that
fall off. Not enough to have a real world effect but definitely noticeable.
You can. Vegans come up short in a few things, notably D3 and B12. It
certainly takes more planning than munching your way through 100 lbs. of
boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
That's certainly how I envision it.
The customer would even get a credit for the remaining charge
that is left in his low battery. The facility would look like a
high-tech car-wash - drive in - robots do the work.
The low batteries would be re-charged when grid rates are
lowest - overnight & weekends.

What do you think this robot facility would cost? The cost of these
new facilities would be one big issue. And then you have the chicken
and the egg problem, ie who's going to make the big investment when
there are no cars that need it and who's going to buy the car without
the facilities? Then you have the biggest problem, which is that all
this is avoided with a gas powered car or a hybrid and last time I
checked, they cost less without the recharging headaches.

It's certainly a good idea. They also tried it in Israel, a small
country where it seemed it might be easier to do than in a big
country. It was in the newspaper in the US. They were going to have
machine-accessible batteries, and a machine that would take the old
one out and put the new one in (since they are heavy.)
It wasn't as popular as they hoped, and maybe they were counting on
enrollment to raise the money to build more battery replacement
locations. At any rate, eventually they put it up to a vote of those
who were using the service, whether, if I recall the choice correctly,
to have fewer battery replacement locations than once planned, but all
over the country, or to have them in the Tel Aviv area, 50 or however
many miles from Tel Aviv. The subscribers voted for the second
choice. But the article below seems to say that that didn't last
either, and maybe I suppose the cars are just slow-charged at the
homes and jobs of whoever owns them now.
Googling I find https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Better_Place
which says they started in 2007, peaked in 2012, and were bankrupt by
2013. They had tried in Denmark and Hawaii too, also small places,
but maybe they did that after they didnt' get enough customers in
Israel, and then had the same problem in the other places too. This
page has a short part called "History of the battery swap concept"
which includes "Electric forklifts have used battery swapping since at
least 1946 and a rapid battery replacement system was
implemented to help maintain 50 electric buses at the 2008 Summer
Olympics in China."
Googling also shows that others in Israel are working instad on a
