    If you care about animals
    Why are you eating all their food?

    I’m just joking around. My sister is a vegetarian. Standing up for what you believe in is admirable.

    This is off topic, sorry, but that makes me think of something an old friend said once years ago. There was this mean girl in school, and one day my friend said to her, "Shelly, you have such pretty blonde hair. Why do you dye your roots black?"

    I thought that was the funniest thing.

    That was a good one! I am currently under attack by a relative who is a vegan. She tells me I'm not a Christian if I eat meat, etc etc ad nauseum. It's really annoying. I eat meat. How does it make me feel when I eat a dead animal? FULL.

    Ooohhh, I've pulled that one before when I got into a fight with some girl at school. Only she was trying to imitate my awesomeness and tried to dye it red with almost black hair. That didn't end well. [​IMG]

    Quote:I've been a vegetarian for 25 years. It has never occurred to me to try and tell someone else what they should or shouldn't eat.

    I always tell people I won't stuff a veggie burger down their throat as long as they don't stuff a steak down mine. To each his own.

    People like that give us "normal" vegetarians a bad rap. Many people cringe and get very defensive when I happen to mention that I'm a vegetarian. I don't believe in trying to force my personal life choices, food, religious or otherwise on others and I hate being lumped in with the pushy kind of vegetarian.

    Just know that we all aren't like your relative!

    I know you guys aren't all like that, that's why I like it here! I think it's like politics and religion, you just shouldn't crash people about it either way.

    I was pescatarian(no meat but fish was good) for 9mths then cut out dairy,so more towards vegan , have fallen off both wagons but i'm thinking of jumping back on because my cholesterol and diabetes were under control and I've started putting the weight back on.
    I was just having a problem with getting enough protein, any ideas on good protein sources?
