Re: Going Veggie

Well okay.. but that still has nothing to do with someone choosing not to hurt animals themselves, by their own actions. I mean people kill people every day but I don't kill people because of it.

Re: Going Veggie

Well of course people can make an honest choice to not hurt animals. It's when they start trying to tell me that I can't eat meat because it hurts animals, that I start getting annoyed.

Re: Going Veggie

That wasn't the point in this thread at all. The only person telling people what they should eat was bigdaddy.

And has anyone here even come close to doing that?

Re: Going Veggie

If the militant people on both sides are finished, can we get back to celebrating food?

Re: Going Veggie

There have been no militant vegetarians in this thread.

I should know, I have food radar.

Re: Going Veggie

^Indeed!

I made a salad last night, which wasn't generally thrilling except that I found a huge jar of deliciously potent garlic paste at the grocery store last week and made a really nice and fast dressing by throwing olive oil, balsamic vinegar, black pepper, and an overflowing spoon of garlic paste in a jar and shaking it. The paste is so damn convenient; I've been adding it to everything! Should I be worried that I've nearly gone through a 12 oz jar in a week and a half?

There's no such thing as too much garlic paste.

Re: Going Veggie

I haven't read this whole thread, but just adding that I've been a vegetarian for almost 10 years. 6 of those years I was entirely vegan.

I am not one of those animal-rights-peta people though.
I did it for different reasons.

But anywho, I still do not drink milk or eat eggs at home. But at work and elsewhere, I will eat anything as long as it's not meat.

For the record, there's a rule that states you are required to submit at least one recipe.

Okay, there's no rule, but I am interested in what you like.

TBH I've come close. I've been pretty direct that eating seafood isn't vegetarian and certainly think that eating meat is wrong.

Yes, animals kill each other all the time, but we're evolved. We have empathy and should know better.

We only rarely need to kill for survival, and normally only do so for pleasure - we like the taste of meat.

However, I wish to state I know very few vegetarians/vegans and have many carniverous friends. I don't hate all meat eaters...

Yeah, but you also don't come off as an asshole or use false claims when stating your opinions. So far the only people who have done that in this thread are the ones saying it's wrong to be a vegetarian/vegan.

Re: Going Veggie

All I ate yesterday was plain yogurt and all bran, 47 chocolate easter eggs and a papaya.

I'm fantasizing about huge chunky salad now..

47??? I hope they were those tiny ones.

I'm on a melon/mango/salad & seeds diet. Though did cook a chicken.

We are disturbingly alike in many ways.
