I think moodymomma has the right idea. Go completely over the top with it:

"I'm a vegetarian because I hate vegetables. Smarmy little bastards, growing wherever they please, ignoring my right to walk wherever I want to. They deserve to be ripped from the ground and eaten like the losers they are!"


"I'm a meat addict and trying to stay clean. The last time I had a hamburger, it got pretty ugly. I couldn't stop, and before I knew it, half of my third-grade class was burger meat and the rest were running for their lives."

I'm not a vegetarian, but I was for several years, and I found that people who were inclined to be jerks weren't looking for reasonable debate: They just wanted to ridicule me for being different. If you find people who truly want to debate with you, by all means, go for it.


Vegetarian Suprise...It's NOT vegetarian! May 05 2008

Ummm-so I HATE McDonalds anyway but those sneaky devils tricked me back with there fruit and walnut salads with gelatin-free yogurt and the Asian salad. However-be warned-the NEWMAN'S SOUTHWEST dressing is NOT vegetarian. Read the label!

So-my purpose here today is to simply get people to list surprise non-veggie foods.

It may be old news but gelatin is a pork product (mcd's shakes, Skittles, Starburst, Ice breaksers gum, etc...)

Please add as many foods as you can so that people can just glance at the list and know where NOT to eat and when they must eat at cetain places, they know what NOT to eat. Thanks!

Mcdonalds is Satan anyways. Did you know even the fries contain beef by-products?
Taco Bell, here I come! (Beans instead of meat, hold the cheese/sour cream, possibly add rice/potatoes/hot sauce)

I really like gimme lean brand soy hamburger and sausage, it comes in a tube and is very sticky and pliable just like real raw ground meat. It would definitely work better for making meatballs than the crumbly fake ground beef that you usually see.

Agreed! I'm vegan, and the Morningstar Farms does NOT work for fake meatballs (although perhaps I could use really soft mashed kidney beans as a binder). It also makes a good "meat"loaf

Honestly, I don't like taking the time to deal with the stupidity of "omg eat meat" debates. Last time someone gave me a hard time, I told them, "Go back to the stone-age, Neanderthal meat-eater."

Vegetarian Vegan Headaches May 05 2008

I get migraines (with aura) but it's not from my veganism, as I have always had them, and it is genetic. Actually, I get far fewer migraines than anyone else in my family, so I suspect my diet helps with my migraines, doesn't cause them.

Vegetarian does sea food count as meat? May 05 2008

Original Post by briarkat:

Of course it does. Flesh of any animal is meat.

Here here! The rule of thumb I use is, "Did an animal die for this/Is it a dead animal? Yes? Then it's meat!" ::stamps "not veggie" on it and asks for more beans:: ;)

Original Post by uglymuffin:

I never knew about gelatin, but I didn't really read tons of sites when becoming vegetarian(Dec07) and I am also only a kid. I guess I will have to find out what all those scientific words mean so I can make sure not to eat anything that an animal had to do for. Haha this will make my mom so mad ..... .__.''

(I know my vitamins don't have it atleast)

Maybe you should read a ton of sites or books, hun. It would really help you out, trust me. I've been vegetarian for 12 years (vegan for three), and reading up and learning the complicated ingredients really helped. I also stumbled across a lot of good recipes along the way.

Make sure you track your nutrition carefully until you get a good feel for what you need. Also, consider buying nutritional yeast (yellow powder. tastes nuttyish, from health food stores) for B12.

Vegetarian Gelatin: Veg or not? May 05 2008
14:48 (UTC)

I vote not veggie-friendly on gelatin. After all, why would you eat the bones/hooves but not the meat?

Vegetarian from a vegan May 05 2008
14:46 (UTC)

Eating gelatin is tantamount to eating meat, but many people do not realize what gelatin really is. I've even heard some people say, "I thought it was fluffy sugar?" (seriously) The people who say gelatin isn't veggie and then eat stuff with it in it may not realize what they're eating contains it. Maybe let them know? Stuff like that is why I almost never take someone's word on "oh it's vegetarian" and always read labels. I don't point fingers, however, and call out, "you're not one of us!" If a vegetarian honestly doesn't know, I'll gladly tell them. Lots of people really don't know where it comes from, and most people stop eating gelatin once I tell them what it is (even meat-eaters..gross-out factor from gnawing on bones).

Vegetarian Vegan roll call? May 05 2008

I've been vegan for three years. I went from meat-eating to vegetarian when I was 12 and then to vegan when I was 21.

Nutritional yeast, people! It's delicious and very high in B12. I sprinkle it on popcorn.

Peanut Butter Pie

  • 16 oz. soft tofu
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. soy milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 unbleached, 9-inch chocolate crust, chilled

Combine all the filling ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Spoon into the pie shell. Refrigerate at least 2 hours and serve. Preparation time: 20 minutes Chilling time: 2 hours

I like to melt vegan chocolate over it.

Also, if you freeze then thaw tofu, it takes on a chicken consistency. Try mashing it and pan-fry it. Add taco seasoning. It's yummy vegan tacos!

Vegetarian How long have you been a vegetarian? WHY? May 05 2008
14:29 (UTC)

I'm 24 years old, and I've been vegetarian for 12 years. Vegan for three. Why? Well, a lot of reasons. First is the whole animal rights/harm none thing (I'm Wiccan/Pagan). I dislike how the meat industry treats animals and the environment. Meat (and animal products) are unnecessary and, often times, unhealthy as well. Yes, I know they have vitamins (but so does cheesecake), but one can get them from other sources easily.
