veggieheather asked: how do we send you a recipe? just through the ask?
woodlums asked: I worked at McDonald's for 4 years. There are vats for the fries, chicken and fish. The fries are in their own vat of oil and there is absolutely no meat cooked in the same vat. However, the package of fries says "natural beef flavoring" and when questioning the head manager at work (her knowing I was a vegetarian) she assured me that there is absolutely NO meat in the fries. It is...
Anonymous asked: Nope, they can't use any beef flavoring in their french fries because in other countries their religions don't allow them to eat beef. I'm not sure which religion it is but it's somewhere in the middle east and their recipe has to be the same all over the world. So they took out the whole animal fat thing and have you ever worked at a mcdonalds? they fry em, take em out, and...
isaynaughtythingsaboutmikeyway asked: Nope MCd's actually uses vegetable oil.
signorino asked: I work at McDonald's. There are three separate vials of "flavoring" that are put into the different fry vats, and the fries get a beef flavoring.
paradoxandplaid asked: Bk does not grill their veggie patties because the grills are typically covered in beef juices and grease- not really out of laziness, more for concern of the meals target buyers.
iamjaxraah asked: Someone asked about fries at BK or McDonald's aaand just to clarify, BK uses corn oil and a separate fryer for fries, I have worked at one for 2 years, I know things! [and no I am not proud of being a vegetarian working at a BK for 2 straight years]
Anonymous asked: So, I remember you saying that you would eat something that isn't technically vegetarian friendly if it doesn't obviously taste like meat. Would you eat ramen if you were starving?
How do you feel about the new layout?
And yes I get my themes from theme garden. I suck at HTML. If you’re good at making themes make me one and I’ll be your best friend.
enterkylexvx asked: My friend(who is now vegan) used to work at McDonalds. I don't know if Burger King does the same as McDonalds but she told me that they microwave the burgers not grill them.
isaynaughtythingsaboutmikeyway asked: BK microwaves the veggie patties, I used to know a guy who worked at one. Also on this topic, if you are vegetarian DO NOT eat the fries at Checkers. The oil/shortening they use for frying them in is Beef Tallow. (trust me I know since it's where I work) The only place that I know of that has a separate fryer is in fact MCD's which is where my friend works. They use vegetable oil for...
Send me your favorite recipes so I can make a...
andreivasilevski asked: To add to what the other person says, I thinkkk BK grills the Morning Star burgers on the same grill as the regular ones, unless I'm wrong. But that bothers me, sooo I wouldn't eat those.
willibemiserable asked: Hey there, just some kind words of advice (: I don't know if I'm supposed to put this under submit or ask so I'm just going to put it here. But ... GNC makes a vegetarian vitamin. The Ultra Mega Vegetarian Multivitamin and Mineral Formula. I don't know what you need but this might be something to look into. I take them daily. I'm at a college with 36,000 students and the...
biologistkid-deactivated2012101 asked: BK veggie burgers aren't even unique; it says right on the board that they are Morningstar (I believe? Correct me if I'm wrong) which are freezer-brand anyways.

weshouldrunawaytogether asked: Thank you so much for this blog! I gave up red meat first. It will be 3 years in January. And then I became a full vegetarian in April. And I get a lot of crap for it. So thanks for putting problems into perspective. You are very inspiring. Keep it up. :)

doctorbee asked: About the person who said not to just direct people to Google... maybe you could put together a resources page? I'm sure your followers would have a lot of suggestions and I know I would love to see what there is! I've been a vegetarian for pretty much my entire life and even I still find cool new stuff from resource pages I find! :)

Anonymous asked: if you're gonna open your ask, you need to be ready to give concrete answers. it may not be what you were planning on, but like it or not ppl will now think this blog is a credible source of info on how to go veg, be healthy, deal with family/friends, etc. you can either disclaim this and make it clear you are NOT qualified to give advice, or give some real info or sources for ppl....

Anonymous asked: Best way to become a vegetarian? Being a very picky eater, I've never liked chicken, fish or most cheeses, and I cut out most dairy from my diet well over a year ago...but I keep hearing about how these things are the last to go from a diet, and how I'm not doing it the "right" way. Any help/advice?
Anonymous asked: I've been considering becoming vegetarian. Can you suggest or link some websites where I can read more about it?

anneliklockan-deactivated201111 asked: Does anyone else ever have insensitive relatives who always try to persuade them that eating meat would be "better" for them? My relatives do this to me all the time and I can't seem to persuade them otherwise.
fightforcontrol-deactivated2012 asked: add some color? maybe bold rainbow colors, like all the colors of the favorite veggies that make up our diets? also, a few days ago, I was walking with my friends at the fair, and there were hanging animal carcasses and my friends made fun of me and kept asking me if the carcasses looked delicious or if I wanted to cry or throw up from seeing that... I think they're just jealous of my...

doctorbee asked: Would you consider creating a new blog just for vegetarian advice/discussion? It seems like it would be a big success.
fxckingmasterpiece asked: Whenever i crave meat i just watch one of those videos on youtube about the slaughter houses. It works for me everytime.
whimaway asked: I see you are answering a lot of the same questions. I have a youtube channel, and this happens to me a lot. Maybe it's time for you to have a FAQ that can just link people to?

Anonymous asked: To the person craving meat you may not be eating enough protein. Your body craves what it needs. Try eating more protein, and possibly fat. Like peanut butter.
hardcorehurricaneallegra asked: (to the person craving meat): if you're trying to get rid of eggs and dairy from your diet, eating meat again isn't exactly the next logical step. part of being a vegetarian, or vegan, is controlling yourself. just because you're craving meat doesn't mean you should eat it. and if you're going to give in to cravings, i'd say give in to eggs and dairy before meat,...
Anonymous asked: Tip for the protein thing: eat dairy and eggs still if you're not against it. If you are, eat whole grains (brown rice for example) , nuts, and dry beans. Soy is also a good protein source. It's very easy to get enough from that.
