Anonymous asked: I'm a pescatarian. Fish are not as sentient.

how interesting, mind sending me the source on that I’d love to read about it

veggiebebe asked: What is your view on eating invertebrate? Like scallops, oysters, and shrimp? I've read that they don't actually feel pain.

they are sentient, so they are not vegetarian 

dunkofwgkta asked: I was thinking about becoming vegetarian and I heard that some vegetarians could eat chicken/fish is this true

You CAN eat whatever you want and call yourself a vegetarian

But by definition the vegetarian diet does not consist of any animal products in any amount

Anonymous asked: I'm a 13 year old girl and thinking about going vegetarian. Do you have any tips on converting and still keeping my health normal like my iron levels etc?

The FAQ is the best place to look for questions like this! There are currently about a hundred messages in my inbox exactly like this one—or asking about protein, vitamins, etc. The information on the FAQ is super helpful or at least offers a good starting point for dietary tips

magicprincen asked: When I first went vegetarian my periods got really irregular but I found out that that's normal if you drastically change your diet (like going vegetarian overnight).

IMPORTANT

Anonymous asked: Are morning star products tasty?

Some of them! It’s all acquired. I don’t like the veggie burgers that actually look like burgers, I have vegetarian friends who love them. I hate the fake chicken, people can’t get enough of them. I like the fake corndogs, some don’t. Give em a try! BUT eat them sparingly, paired with lots of grains and fruits and veggies. You can’t get a full meal just out of fake meat, and you shouldn’t overuse those products as they can be high in sodium

Anonymous asked: I've been vegetarian for about 3 months and I want to keep it up but I've been craving chicken and turkey. Have any advise?

Okay so call me a bad vegetarian for endorsing this, but those overpriced weird looking morningstar tofurky roasts in the fridge section at the supermarket? Surprisingly really good! They get a lot of hate but my mom made me those around the holidays and for a couple of special occasions and I genuinely like it a lot. May not be the healthiest thing in the world, but its not bad and it tastes good! Use the leftovers for sandwiches, etc. Also I personally don’t like imitation chicken products but those are an option. 

Most importantly- a lot of the time when you crave meat your body is telling you that you are missing something! Make sure you are eating healthfully and that your diet is not low in protein, iron, or other important nutrients 

Anonymous asked: What do you think about vegans and their diet?

respect, more power to ‘em

aleelovespolarbears asked: is there such thing as egg-less breakfast food that doesn't taste like dessert? I am so tired of muffins, potatoes, and oatmeal for breakfast.

Well there’s always soy breakfast meats? I’ve never tried them but morningstar makes veggie sausages and whatnot (psa: always watch how much soy fake meat product you are consuming as they are high in sodium and are not enough to constitute a healthy vegetarian diet)

Other than that, wow, grits? I’m from the south, I don’t know how popular those are everywhere else but yeah grits are a thing. Use tofu and veggies to make a breakfast scramble! Throw it in a tortilla and call it a breakfast burrito

EDIT: morningstar breakfast products contain eggs
