Re: Going Veggie

That sounds extremely good. I love udon noodles too. And that style of food is so flexible, pretty much do anything with it.

Yeah udon noodles are amazing. Somehow the potatoes come out like bacon bits, I'm not sure how, but they are so good.

Come to the Dark Side, we have meat.

A few of us here are not Veggie people, solely. I am an Omnivore, but enjoy learning about food. So, here I am.

Re: Going Veggie

Oh I love meat, not eating meat to me is stupid. You need the minerals and vitamins from both meat and plants. But people eat too much meat, and even 1-2 meatless meals a week is great for you. People need a variety of foods.

No. Not eating meat is a healthful choice.

No. This is not at all true. Please read the thread and see how this silly myth is easily debunked by evidence.

Thinking you know the best way for everyone else to eat and playing the Diet Police is stupid.

Re: Going Veggie



I'm not the diet police, eat whatever you want, I went through a veggie phase, and my best friend did it for 2-3 years and then started eating good, fresh, natural meats and went to me after it ended, "That was stupid for me, I feel much better now".

As long as you aren't eating only veggies because hurting animals is mean, I don't care what you eat. Because eating plants is hurting the plant, and plants have feelings too. However the history of humans is based on eating meat and plants. Ancient humans were hunters and gathers, ate meat and berries. Then we learned to farm and eat more plants, which is horrible for our teeth, but still hunted too.

Sorry, but your post is easily interpreted as "vegetarianism is stupid", a position supported by the false assertion that we "need the vitamins and minerals from both meat and plants." Combined, it seemed like the stance of diet policers. So, sorry for getting you wrong, but I hope you can see how easy the mistake was, and that you recognize that your statement about needing meat is not factual.

Oh wait, my mistake, you were being judgemental after all! And don't get me started on the complete lack of logic behind the paleo claims. I find it hilarious that people think it's a healthy idea to base lifestyle choices on people whose average lifespans were 25 years.

I love meat too. I don't like beans and pulses.

I have, however, been a healthy vegetarian for 28 years because I realised that I was only eating meat because I liked it. Killing for pleasure is wrong, however you look at it...

Come on, guy, you're coming into a Vegetarian thread saying that you think not eating meat is stupid?

I've been a vegetarian for 20 years and I am healthier than I used to be before. So your argument about what I "need" to eat is... a missed shot at best.

I DO eat variety of foods. But meat doesn't belong to that, that's all.

AND... I think even a child knows that the best source for vitamins are vegetables and fruits, not meat

What does it have to do with you if someone doesn't eat meat because of hurting animals?

Re: Going Veggie

^ I think it must be because animals routinely hurt each other. They kill each other for food every minute of the day. So therefore, it doesn't seem out of the ordinary that we eat them.

YMMV, of course.
