I'm not a veggie but Labrynth Press Co in downtown Jtown serves up some darn good veggie dishes, not too bad to go meat free occasionally.

Eating a balanced diet with rich protein sources from things like fish and white meats, and more occasionally red meats is a healthy way to go. Vegetarianism works for some, but for many people it is impractical, tiresome, and not as satisfying. Remember, if something is not practical for the majority of people, then its not a realistic plan. It makes more sense to promote a healthy balanced diet, and let the vegetarians control their own diet.

lol.

Alice what you'll find in little dogs like Seadog is that they seem to spend the most time responding angrily to comments in which they 'don't care what you think' lol

Totallyalice and Freddy, do you really believe I care what either of you think? And how was my response to Freddy homophobic? How do I know what sex he/she is?

LOL. So your response is bascially "yeah, but I bet your gay". LOL, I'm very sure that should help you seem less childish.

We do not need to eat animals for health. I've been in O.R. enough times to know this.

"I bet you'd make some woman who doesn't mind walking to the store proud".

That makes a lot of sense - are you related to gioallie?

I'm sad to report the cow did not make it. On the bright side, steaks and burgers will be available tomorrow!

Seadog Feb-20-13 8:36 AM

I just passed a cow in a field with an ice bag tied to her head and a thermometer in her mouth. It looked like the farmer was bringing her a large bowl of chicken soup and a bottle of asprin.

Another thing vegans/vegetarians come at you with is Mad Cow Disease. There has never been a documented case of Mad Cow Disease in human in the U.S. There are cases of creutzfeldt jakob disease and its variants [similar to spongiform encephalopathy {mad cow}], but its not contracted by contaminated meat, rather its a spontaneous mutation of a brain protein.

There have been cases of spongiform encephalopathy in Cows in the U.S., but not a documented certain case of a human so far.

Fredoniarocks - "you learned something"? I thought you were an expert on any and all subjects. At least that what you believe and say in your posts.

"nuts/FRUITS/VEGTABLES" not just nuts. Also, krystalgirl, what kind of nuts do you feed your 7 and 4 year olds instead of meat?

Although actually even without the 'nut' part you still weren't quite right, because you leave out the fact that some produce is still on par with [or even higher] the energy level of many red meats, as well as the fact that a higher proportion of energy from these meats is the wasted form of energy that goes to gaining weight.

But again, kudos for being a big boy and admitting you were wrong. Finally.

i guess would've exempted the peanut my statement would've gone from 90%+ accurate to nearer a hundred. sorry.

i should've made my original point that minus the peanut, the energy provided by a certain amount of produce can be provided via red meat at lower volume.

or i could say i agree with the person at the educational institute, in terms of energy from consumption volume.
