one of us....one of us! sorry OP, sucks when other peoole impose thier will on other people.
Yeah, I'm vegetarian because I want to be and would never force it on anyone. I don't even encourage it unless someone asks me to help them be one. Some people's bodies can handle it and no one should ever be forced into a lifestyle that's unhealthy for them or even just unwanted.
everyone thinks I'm part vegetarian because my boyfriend makes me. it's partly true. I don't cook with meat anymore because it's silly to do so for just myself. our crazy, animal rights nut neighbor is always preaching vegetarianism to anyone that'll listen. it's like "god stfu lady."
Poisoning your bodies with what? Protein? Sustenance? She doesn't have the right to force you to go vegetarian, OP! I'm guessing your family feels the same. Gang up on her, for lack of a better phrase.
Being a vegetarian does not mean forgoing protein or sustenance. Been a vegetarian all my life and it's been pretty good. Helps that 70% of my country's cuisine is vegetarian. But yes, imposing your will on others is wrong and eating meat is your choice. IF she has a problem with it he can eat elsewhere but forcing them to forgo it entirely is impinging on your rights.
91 - I have so many people ask me what I do for protein in my vegetarian diet. >( There is protein in a billion things other than meat. It isn't cool to force your dietary ideals on others, though. My dog eats raw meat because he's a carnivore and that's what he needs. Vegans who try to make their cats vegan are crazypants. OP, I'd try to ride it out. If she's anything like my mother (who hitches on a fad diet for a month or so), next month it'll be Weight Watchers and you'll be back in pork chops in no time.
Better start eating meat when your out of the house, that way you get your proteine and your mom stays happy! Hang in there anyway!
Sounds like the worst kind of a modern-day cult. One without bacon.
Modern druid? Is that like hippie with less rainbow tyedye/tiedye (don't know how it's spelled)? Does she do animal sacrifices and necromancy as well, or does she think "nature religions" like druidism or animism means not hurting anything because of its spirit?
How does one go without steak, it just doesn't happen, or burgers ir hotdogs... sneak in the good stuff OP when mom isn't home
it's funny how close minded and judgemental people are. you must not have had tofu prepared correctly. it's good in a lot of Chinese dishes. they fry it with some sort of coating on it and it gets really crispy and similar to a piece of chicken. you know what should make you throw up, eating an animal that didn't have to die so you can eat it. not to mention the filthy pens but I'm not one of those anti meat people. meat eaters are as bad as the veg extremists. instead of having a respectable opinion you say shit like "omg Ew that's gross I threw up" I didn't finish reading that comment because it wasn't very intelligent sounding.
@30 do you use morningstar products? some of those are very good. I like tacos with MS ground "meat" I'm not completely veg but my man is so I'm converting. the other day I made Tofurkey hot sausages with peppers and onions. it was just like a real sausage. I live in a Jewish neighborhood and the dunkin donuts is kosher and serves MS sausage and no one knows the difference. I still eat meat once in a while but I don't miss it and I've lost 50 pounds.
You either have never had tofu, never had it made well or only like meat because people tell you to. I'm not saying its the same, but I bet if you we're blindfolded and given real meat well prepared tofu you'd have a hard time telling the difference. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of things like steak that can't be replicated, just don't be so easy to dismiss something you probably tried once.
You've seriously got the cheek to call someone 'judgemental and close-minded' because they don't like a certain food? Wow. I'm a vegetarian and even I think tofu is disgusting (and yes, I've had it prepared properly and such). That doesn't mean you should stop liking it but, equally, you can't have a go at someone just for not liking it.
"eating an animal that didnt have to die..." You do realize that the only reason those animals exist is to be eaten. If you deny them that, the animals have no purpose whatsoever, besides the disposal of large amounts of rather expensive feed. *Warning, Sarcasm* You vegetarians are taking away the souls of these animals essentially. *Sarcasm Over*
You do realize that the animals we eat are atrocities of nature, right? We created cows from natural species through selective breeding. They are terrible abominations that would die out instantly in the wild. They can't run, they sometimes don't have horns, they aren't smart or active enough, and are just overall not fit.
#80 I like morning star buffalo wings, chicken nuggets, the crumbles for tacos, etc. When I became a vege, I thought they were real meat products, just being written off as otherwise. I actually love that meat more than the real stuff. I like pastas and other foods. Being a vegetarian has made me learn to cook a lot more and I get better variety. I've been vege for around 5 years and love it. I won't lie, though...I do miss bacon and ham :/ those were the only 2 meats I actually enjoyed
