Add Me Veg - Active Community!
Hello omnivores! I love my omnivore friends, but sometimes its nice to chat with a fellow veg*n, swap recipes, discuss dinner ideas, and share ideals about animal welfare and animal protection and for the love of all that is good, not have to explain yourself about your dietary choices (unless you wish to). Interested omnivores are allowed in too, the idea is that not all vegans or vegetarians are fundamentalist extremists, (trying to convert someone never worked look at some of the histories of religions), infact some of us V's are actually very nice and will freely exchange ideas. Live and let live.
Promises to be a drama free, fun filled place!
Looking forward to seeing you over there!

An amusing snippet of conversation from my environmental class, featuring the teacher, who announced at the beginning of class her ambition to have us all become vegetarian by the end of the term:
Vegetarian Chick: Would it benefit the environment if everybody stopped eating meat?
Teacher: (brightens) Yes! It would be wonderful! (she seriously said that)
Other Guy(who I'm sure isn't veggie): But wouldn't the same deforestation issues occur for farming? Isn't the problem the amount of land needed to feed the population, and not the kind of food grown on the land?
Teacher: (crestfallen) Well, yes, overpopulation is the major issue.
Maybe not the best thing you'll read all day, but it was great to see her deflate when that point was brought up.

Meat Sampler Restaurant
Well, because anti_vegan has denied my request to be a community member, I'll post here instead of the most deliciously meat-tastic restaurant ever.
For those of you living in or near L.A., there is a Brazilian place called, I think, Pichana (spelling might be wrong ) in Burbank.
The hostess seats you, takes your drink order, and points you in the direction of the salad and pasta bar. On the table there is a little carved block of wood. One half is painted red, the other half green. This is where it gets exciting. If you leave the red half up, then you are left alone to enjoy the food from the bar, BUT, if you turn it to the green side, it signals the half a dozen waiters wandering between the tables holding huge skewers of meat to come over and slice you off a sample of whatever they're carrying. And it never ends. There are always about 3 waiters out at one time, and as long as the green end is up they won't stop coming over, and I personally feel bad turning them away.
My boyfriend only eats chicken, so I'm left with the duty to sample everything else being served.
I now give you a list of meat being served;
Chicken wrapped in bacon
Marinated leg of lamb
Parmesan pork loin
All in one meal. They only serve you small portions so you don't fill up too fast, but my lord!
It's expensive...about $20 per person, but at least you always leave full.
I don't know if the place is a chain, somehow the schtick with the block of wood makes me suspect corporate brainstorming, but it is definietly worth the trip.

I was telling some acquaintances about a really kick-ass chicken ceasar salad my wife made the other day, and one of them stopped me when I started on the veggies that were in it. She seemed confused. So, I had to explain to her about the fact that omnivore doesn't mean I cringe at the thought of veggies. Was kinda sad, now that I think about it.

Hey veg*ns, it's omnivore, not carnivore, get it right. Not many people eat nothing but meat. omnivore
n 1: a person who eats all kinds of foods 2: an animal that feeds on both animal and vegetable substances</blockquote>
I fit number two pretty well. I eat more plant foods than I do animal foods anyway, but both are important parts of my diet.

Kind of a follow-up to this

I can't think of anything more frustrating than vegans that cannot recognize that there are people that can't be vegan. If someone can be healthy on a vegan diet, good for them. That doesn't represent everyone. The next time I hear "but you weren't doing it right" I'm going to scream. I got weak and sick on a vegan diet, and I feel better now that I eat meat again. I will never be vegan again.
For every time I hear "you weren't doing it right", I'm going to eat extra meat just to spite them.
Edit: Apparently I'm ignorant, haha.
I'm going to be needing a trip to the grocery. Meat party at my house. Current Mood: frustrated

I found this from anti_anti_vegan
. I wasn't going to join at first because I'm not an omnivore. I'm a vegan. But then it said that feminists are welcome so I joined up. I won't be mean to anyone here. ;)

I'll kick this off with a ranty little post about animals, and them being omnivores.
Lately in an animal rights forum people are going on and on about how they have vegan dogs and CATS (BOOOOO!!!). Why are they so determined to take an animal that is an OMNIVORE (like a canine) and make it a HERBIVORE? Why? There is no benefit whatsoever to the animal (unless it has severe allergies). One person even claimed it cured their dogs anxiety...why, because now he's so run down he doesn't have the energy to be upset? It was a border collie, and I can tell you, they just have a lot of anxiety, it has nothing to do with diet.
Cats are carnivores, period, case closed. Just because you can force a cat to survive on a food, doesn't mean they are THRIVING, which is what we should want for our pets. I wish there wasn't so many carbs in the food they make them now, but sadly, it's cheaper. I've been seriously considering getting rabbits and breeding them, euthanizing them in the same way people euthanize mice for freezing (for reptiles), and then just food process the WHOLE rabbit into food. That is what cats eat in the wild. Throw in a few frozen mice for good measure... :) Seems like nature knows what it's doing, why should I mess with it with artificial junk and vitamins?
Seems like the best diet for a cat would be rabbits/chickens/rodents fed an organic diet and then fully processed (without feathers in the case of chickens). Taurine, something cats NEED is actually found naturally in rodent brains...I wonder why?
I just wish people (and PETA) would drop their agenda and do what is actually best for the animal they have decided to take responsibility for, even if that means "murdering" "innocent" animals to feed them.
I will say though that quite a few people rejected vegan cat food (hurray!) but unfortunately those with the agenda are always much louder than the ones without it. Current Mood: annoyed
