michaeldf37-deactivated20121118 asked: To the anon that's only doing soy and a few vegetables: try seitan to mix up the protein. For vegetables, experiment with different types of cuisine to see if different seasoning helps. I usually hate vegetables, but I don't mind them if I cook them in an Italian style. Also, try for fresh if you're using frozen or canned. That will help a lot.
Anonymous asked: For the person saying they don't like the soymilk. Almond milk is the way to go. I'v tried every single milk substitute and almond was the only one that didn't taste super nutty. Also, it's super good and cereal and as coffee creamer.(:
Anonymous asked: Hey, so, since I've became a vegetarian - about 5 years ago - I've been replacing meat with basically only soy and a few vegetables. Do you think I might not be healthy? I feel good, but I don't know... I'm just not very into a lot of vegetables. I'm really picky when it comes to food, which makes it harder to be a vegetarian

DISCLAIMER(S): I know that this verse was probably not originally about vegetarianism, but I encourage those of you who are interested to read all of Romans 14 and tell me what you think about it and how it opposes/ supports choosing a unique diet such as vegetarianism. I’m trying to encourage a healthy discussion, and any hate will be ignored. I am NOT forcing religion on anybody, I...
Anonymous asked: Many people argue about the ingredients of Oreos, however, if you email Nabisco and ask about it, they're not vegan. They get their sugar from three different plants, and while two refine their sugar with molasses, the other refines it with bone char.
kisetsu-no-sakura asked: This is what Obama said: "We got rid of one rule from 40 years ago that could have forced some dairy farmers to spend $10,000 a year proving that they could contain a spill – because milk was somehow classified as an oil. With a rule like that, I guess it was worth crying over spilled milk." So he did NOT say or imply that the strict government regulation of farms is unnecessary,...

sakura-mori asked: @ newtovegan: Humans may not be supposed to drink animal milk after a certain age, but for those who do continue to drink it, not all experience health problems. I drank milk up until the end of high school and I'm perfectly fine. Not everyone who drinks dairy suddenly gets ill. Besides, I like my desserts to have regular milk instead of soy milk as their ingredients. I once tried soy ice...
Anonymous asked: For anyone interested in healthy living, I would recommend "Quantum Wellness" by Kathy Freston. It has a load of great facts about veganism and the effect of animal-products on the human body that I often use when engaging in food arguments.

Yesterday I was at this store and I saw a bad of beef and onion flavored potato chips, and it said right on the nutrition facts, "suitable for vegetarians," so I bought a bag.

Do I have any nerdfighter followers?

thathealthyveggiekid asked: @ singing melody - why would you wanna drink milk from a cow? dairy is so bad for you, even if it isn't taken in a cruel way, you still shouldn't drink it. It's linked to all sorts of diseases and cancers it's just not worth it however it's obtained.
amethystarcher asked: @likefalloutvapors: The term you're thinking of for people who don't eat animal products, but still use leather, fur, and other animal products is dietary vegan. A person can be a dietary vegan, but not a vegan in every aspect of his/her life.
chumanz asked: Also, I have a Vegan cookbook called "The Vegan Family Cookbook" and it was written by Chef Brian P. McCarthy, over 400 recipes and devided into sections depending on the type of meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner, appatizers, drinks, desserts, etc)
likefalloutvapors-deactivated20 asked: From what I understand, vegetarian predated the term "vegan", originally meaning someone who doesn't eat animal products. at that point, there were lacto-, ovo-, and lacto-ovo-vegetarians, as well as just regular ol' vegetarians (i.e. vegan) When vegan evolved, vegetarian was used to encompass lacto-ovo vegetarians. Also, a vegetarian may also be someone who doesn't eat...
whatisxmylife asked: SO! i saw that you said the internet played a large role in your choice to stop eating meat. and i just thought i'd share that it happened the same way for me! i first became a vegetarian in 2006 and it was pretty much because i bumped into this video on youtube that showed how horribly the animals inside some of the slaughterhouses and farms are treated.but i don't think it's all...
kisetsu-no-sakura asked: @ anon: uh, yeah, not all dairy industries do that. At my university, since we have the animal science major program (which I'm part of), we have dairy and beef cattle, and the dairy cattle on campus are NOT slaughtered at birth (if they were, I wouldn't have seen the cute calves) and they do not slaughter male calves for veal. And they don't slaughter "dairy" cattle for...
andsummerwithanotherwind asked: Eggs also require the death of an animal, as the industry currently stands - all chicks are sorted by workers and males are tossed into a grinder since they're useless to the companies. There was a recent Mercy For Animals video investigating an egg farm if anybody wants information, actually.
manofmer asked: Didn't think I would have to be so specific but, I was referring to any DIRECT death or use of animal body parts. Besides, I was simply debating the use of prefixes, there's no need to get preachy. Keep in mind most people here, including myself, have completely cut out meat products from their diet. Why not refocus your energy from telling people how their lifestyles are terrible, to...
Anonymous asked: If veggie = no animal products that require death, then stop drinking milk. Calves from the milk industry are routinely killed at birth or after being raised for veal. Dairy cows die 15-20 years before they should, and are slaughtered so their meat can be sold to fast food places. Milk is just as cruel as meat.
manofmer asked: I agree with what you just said, I don't know about other people but veggie to me means no animal products that require an animal to die, so eggs and milk products are ok. It would be different if some one was a "lacto" or "ovo" -vegan, considering vegans eat nothing that come from any animal.
mindlesseye asked: Some vegetarians will eat eggs but not milk, or milk but not eggs. It's usually unnecessary to say lacto-ovo because that's generally your run of the mill vegetarian, but just ovo or just lacto can be useful for being specific about what you eat
I haven’t decided on a specific posting schedule but I will let y’all know soon. Also, how do you feel about me making a vegetarian problems twitter? Like this if you’d fillow
Anonymous asked: Okay, so a lacto-ovo vegetarian still eats dairy and cheese? I thought vegans didn't eat dairy or eggs, or any animal products. So, is a vegetarian someone who doesn't eat flesh, or dairy and egg products? Or just flesh?

thisisarock asked: Yeah honestly, while I think it's a good idea to try and cook for yourself if your parents won't support you, sometimes it's just not possible. It's sad, but some parents will make their kids eat meat. Not everyone's in a situation where they can eat what they want. My dad make me keep a food journal to be vegetarian. Every parent reacts differently and it's not...
wantbonyhips asked: to all of you who wants to be vegetarian but you "can't" because your parents won't let you/don't support it. Screw them, my parents are not very supportive especially not in the beginning but I just have to make my own food and it works fine, just be strong and you'll do great!

That wasn't why I sent the message, I just wanted to tell you, and I wanted to know your opinions on it,...
Anonymous asked: To that other anon- draining of the blood is not the only thing that makes an animal kosher. It needs to have been treated well, it could not have been tortured, it could not feel pain when it was killed. It is by no means a more horrible experience for the animal to go through. (this coming from a slightly religious Jew who has been to a few kosher cow farms)
