i could gnaw away at a chunk of slab bacon all day mmmmmm pig fat
soy burgers and soy chicken nuggets kick ass. I eat them all the time. They taste exactly the same and they have like 1/3rd the fat.
really? i haven't gone that far, but i may have to give them a try.
I grinded some nasty pork rinds today. Man that stuff is evil-but it tastes good..
pork rinds rule nothing like a puffed up chunk of pig skin
And how about cream in your coffee?
Just because milk is inteded for baby cows doesn't mean we shouldn't eat it- hell, veal WAS a baby cow, yet plenty of people eat and enjoy that (let's steer clear of the humanitarian aspects- if you rather, a nice t-bone used to be a baby cow). It's a valid food product, whether or not it's particuarly good for you is beside the point- we use it and its various products (cheese, cream, etc) as a flavorful addition to our diet.
I'm not saying it isn't a good idea to limit your intake a little- too much of anything is bad for you- I'm just saying that nothing I've seen in this thread constitutes a reason to stop drinking it and eating its products altogether.
Incidentally, while a soy burger or soy nugget has absolutely no appeal to me, I LOVE gardenburgers. Do they taste just like a beef patty? No, but that's not the point- they're a very flavorful grillable alternative, and in my experience, it's a lto easier to make a good gardenburger than a good burger- my school served them at barbecues a lot for the vegetarians, and I'd usually opt for them over the burgers because the burgers were always overcooked, but a slightly overcooked gardenburger just got a bit crispy on the outside, which was nice.
i've never been a coffee drinker
no, drinking animal milk won't kill you, i've just found a suitable/healthier alternative to it.
i guess it's been a health kick as of late. i mean, i've been clear of smoking and drinking for about 7 years now, and have lately started regular exercise and trimming up my diet. both were going south lately
i just started the thread because i'm feeling alot better lately. is it all psychogenic? eh, could be
ahh. there, my friend, is your problem.
*sips third large black coffee of the day*
once as an undergrad i was talking with one of my grad student buddies. she asked me if i'd like some coffee that she had just made, and i said, "thanks but no thanks, i'm not a coffee drinker." to which she replied, "the force is strong with you, but soon enough you'll join the dark and caffienated side."
though, i DO like my ice creams... i'm not sure how i'm going to work my way around that. maybe ice cream will just have to be my dairy vice
it's the only way to be. If you don't like coffee, you just haven't had a well-brewed cup (I grind my own first thing in the morning, and brew it in a french press- doesn't need cream or sugar, it's got a smooth flavor and great body as it is).
If you're ever in waltham, let me know- I'll get you hooked.
