As much as I enjoy an optimistic take on people/life/the world/etc, I can't get all YIPPEE about the wishful thinking that Atheist <=> Veg.
I'm an atheist.
I'm a veg.
I'm a scientist.
I know lots of atheist scientists, most of whom eat carcasses. I know very few veg's; but most of the veg's I know kind of gaze at crystals or some other mystical "spiritual" BS.
Hi strict veggie-head.
Your question is way more complex than it sounds. Not because eating veg is complex, but because what is acceptable to you as a "strict veggie-head" may be different from that of another veg. You mention animal testing, use of animal products, and things that are vegetarian friendly. These criteria point to different levels/genres/goals of vegetarianism, an
For what it's worth, Bibbit, I can tell you what it was like for me when I first became veg: Starving college student and looking for cheapest and best way to feed myself. Turns out it was dry bulk section of my local store: rice, soybeans. Ate a lot of that w/ broccoli or squash or whatever veggies were in season and therefore cheapest, w/ spices also from the bulk section of the store. Did
Not sure what you mean by "healthy sauce salads". Do you mean dressings for leafy green salads? If so, I have a couple of suggestions.
I make salad dressing on the nights we have salad (as opposed to buying a bottle of dressing), and just enough to cover the salads for that night (as opposed to a whole bunch that then has to be stored in the fridge). Depending up
Wow, that's quite a rosy view of the political purposes of religion you have there.
As for the lcd vegan menu at Windsor Castle, I think that's perfect! It's the same thing I try to do when going to a potluck (a part for which everyone brings a dish or two to share around): although I am not vegan myself but just vegetarian, I bring vegan dishes because they are more inclusive of everyone.
I'm eating the yummiest dessert right now. Thought I'd pass along a recipe of sorts in case any of you have an ice "cream" maker. I've got a little 1.5 qt. Cuisinart electric machine which I just love.
I'm not one to write down recipes as I go along, so I've intentionally left the ingredient amounts pretty vague. Add as much or as little as you want. However, you should stick pre
I doubt there's anything other than an illusory correlation here. Some reasons I say so just off the cuff are:
* As of this writing there are 84 members of the Christian Vegans and Vegetarians group on this website. (for comparison, there are 112 members of this group--not that many more than the xian group).
* Seventh Day Adventists are vegetarians (or are supposed to be, but like Jews
"Man" also created Santa Claus, the Cheshire Cat, and Balrogs. I've seen all three of these. They entice little children in malls, they grin or roar on movie screens, they sit on shelves of toy stores in all their polyester-stuffed or plastic-molded realness. They exist! Praise the laughing fat man! Glory to the incredible disappearing feline! Hosanna to the molten, whip-cracking
