In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I think it depends on why someone is a vegetarian. Strictly speaking, of course, a vegetarian does not eat fish. But there are many people who have cut red meat from their diets for health reasons and then it's an easy next step to chicken but fish is seen as more healthy than either of these two.

I am not currently a vegetarian but I was for several years. One of the reasons that I returned to eating meat was that I needed some balance in my life. I found that once I started cutting out meat (all of it, including fish) on principle, eggs came next, then all milk products, then of course I couldn't wear leather, and pretty soon I wasn't eating certain vegetables and no wheat or yeast. It got to be pretty difficult to feed and clothe myself.

Peace.

2. "RE: ever feel guilty for eating root vegetables?"
In response to Reply # 1


          

it's true that once you get started you get crazy. i eat fish because there's a sense of lost community that comes from being a vegetarian, and because veggie food can be so hard to come by sometimes. but there's no ideaology behind it. an animal is an animal, whether it's breathing air or water (please don't get technical with me about this one...)

but is there ideology behind it for some people? (non-biblical)

What's the deal with wheat and yeast? I've heard of people cutting out wheat, but no one has really told me why (other than s/he was allergic to wheat or thought s/he might be). What about yeast? Surely not because they're animals? (Strictly speaking, aren't they protozoa?)

I have heard of vegetarians eating shrimp because, supposedly, shrimp do not have nerve endings in their bodies and don't feel pain when killed.

Then there's the issue of cheese... Cheese is made (usually) with rennet, which comes from the cow's stomach lining, which means the animal is killed anyway...

(I'm not a vegetarian although I don't eat much meat, anyway)

4. "Yeast"
In response to Reply # 3


  

          

There were two reasons: First, many people have an allergic sensitivity to yeast that causes reactions like hypoglycemia. Second, almost every prepared food has yeast in it, so it may have been a backwards way of getting away from pre-packaged foods. There are some really great yeast free breads that became kind of a meat substitute for me.

But, hey, I didn't eat cauliflower, brussels sprouts or mushrooms either.

This was supervised by a nutritional herbologist -- I didn't think it up on my own. (Although he wasn't the person who stopped me from wearing leather. That was a real trick, since at the time I rode a motorcycle as my sole means of transportation).

There are plenty of people who believe that the big problem with red meat is that the adrenaline that courses through the flesh of the animal at slaughter causes aggression in the person eating the meat. If it was just a matter of ethical slaughter, there are lots of options. Kosher meat is usually killed ethically, lambs don't struggle (I hear), and I just saw in my local organic market a sign about the chicken that they sell being raised with "respect" (no comments on the technique used to kill the chickens).

Peace.

In response to Reply # 6


  

          

I loved all of them. He said that they are hybrids and unhealthy. Again, this was supervised and also included an herb regimen (notably garlic. Damn I took a lot of garlic in those days -- garlic is a blood purifier).

Peace.

oh that yeast thing cracks me up, and i agree about wheat--any macrobiotics out there? (isn't that what it's called...?)

>>I have heard of vegetarians eating shrimp because, supposedly, shrimp do not have nerve endings in their bodies and don't feel pain when killed.

is that what makes an animal an animal? please, that's ridiculous... but, then again, it's not really about pain to me in the first place, so....

>>Then there's the issue of cheese... Cheese is made (usually) with rennet, which comes from the cow's stomach lining, which means the animal is killed anyway...

yeh, so many vegetarians won't eat rennet cheese. or filtered sugar or salt. or medicine made with gelatin... see what i mean about lost sense of community? i mean, it's all fine and good when ya cook for yaself and ya have enough cash to be picky, but what ya never eat with friends? ya only have veg friends? what a ridiculous way to limit yourself....

That is correct. Gelatin capsules are not vegetarian.

Country Life makes good vitamins that are in fact vegetarian. There are some others out there now, more than there used to be.

ya gotta watch the nongelatin capsules that you read carefully because sometimes you will find they're gelatin free but have cod liver oil or vice versa...

most drugstore vitamins have gelatin. most meds have gelatin.

You have to read the labels. Here in SF most grocery stores have organic foods and vegetarian vitamins. Country Life is also one of only a few that manufacture yeast free vitamins.

>or filtered sugar or salt.

Now I remember hearing of this, too, but I can't remember the reason behind it... Please explain...

Also I never had "macrobiotics" straight... Doesn't it mean as little processing as possible? e.g. whole grains instead of baked bread. Although that "least-processing" sounds like what Rastafarians call "I-tal" but my memory's hazy with that, too...

Thanx...

No kidding? So presumably, kosher salt is processed differently?

I used to wonder what the hell kosher salt was, I mean what's the difference, do they slaughter it differently? But the bone chard, or lack thereof, would make sense...

I've only seen it on bagels (looks like rock salt), I haven't seen it for sale by itself. But out of curiosity, I will go look!

Now that you've mentioned it, I wondered if sea salt is unfiltered (and thus both kosher and vegetarian)...

>any news?

Here's what I've found:

http://www.pathfinder.com/FoodWine/ask/90120.html

Apparently, any salt is "kosher", i.e. fit for consumption. But kosher salt is coarse and flaky, and better suited for drwaing the blood out of meat (so as to make the meat kosher).

Are you sure about the bone filtering? I would think that would come into conflict in one way or another...

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

When I was a teenager I stopped eating pork because I believed only poor people ate it. I am from the south and it was a big issue in my family. After high school I moved to NYC and discovered tofu, soy protein and the more veggetarian food I found the less meat I ate. Out went the red meat, chicken and eventually fish. However, unless you live in NYC where veggie restaraunts abound then you're ass out, especially if you don't know how to prepare the food.

I was macrobiotic for a time and I got really sick so I started eating milk products, eggs and occasionally fish again to stay healthy. I never went back to pork, chicken or red meat.

yeh, i was eating a piece a chicken one day and wondered what it would be like to be a vegetarian. 10 years later, while in panama, i started eating some fish--when i realized there was one vegetarian restaurant in all of panama city.

if you research it and like the kinky foods like grain and tofu, vegan diets and macro and all that--raw foods even, are good for you..... but if you don't eat the right things, you should be eating meat.

but i think ny is the only place where mcdonalds has veggie burgers? oh yeh, and london. in london bk and all kindsa places have veg.

Tofurkey, or are they from Now and Zen (makers of Unturkey).

I went to this "Natural Foods Expo" in Baltimore last year as well as last month (it's basically just a bunch of suits walking around doing bizness as usual, only they think they're better than the rest because their bizness is "organic"; I just go for the free food and beer ]

Anyway, I thought the unribs were divine!

Speaking on the Morningstar issue, I don't eat anything by Morningstar as I'm vegan and most of their products contain some sort of unfertilized chicken embryo product, but I can tell you that the Health is Wealth meatless Buffalo Wings are pretty tasty. I too am not much a fan of the fake meat stuff, but for those who are, be on the lookout for a new line from a company called "Veggie Chef". Specially their Black Pepper Steak.

Soyboy's baked tofu is certainly the best, and it's incredibly thick and filling! People look at me eating it raw for lunch right out of the package like I'm some sort of monster. The "Smoke and Fire" company make some tasty baked and smoked tofu products as well.

23. "Vegetarians DO NOT eat fish"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

A Vegetarian is someone that refrains from eating animals. This includes red meat, white meat, fish and derivitives thereof like gelatin.

Vegan's as well as not eating the above, also do not eat animal by products like cheese, milk and honey.

I have been a Vegetarian since 1988 and to be quite frank, peoples misconceptions and claims to Vege/Veganness when they eat fish and sea animals pisses me the fizuck off.

Thank you.

i used to be upset about people sayin they're veg when, for example, they still eat chicken and fish, or they still eat fish, or even when all they eat is dairy and fake meat-

but, really, what is it about, anyway?
(depends on why you're veg in the first place)

i just like to see more people movin in the veg direction, whether it means not eating red meat or not eating cooked vegetables or whatever

vegetarianism isn't a club or a special honor or award. it's a way of life that involves limiting or excluding personal use of animal products.

I am not saying people should be vegetarian, I am just clarifying issues. Americans can be so half arsed about shit and claim they are something without doing half of the work.

That's called healthy eating, NOT vegetarianism.

yes, it is that simple. looking for a clearcut definition of vegetarian? that's exactly right. but i think it goes deeper than that in practice.

really, someone who is not technically but tries to be in practice a vegetarian should not be isolated from a vegetarian movement. no need to isolate anybody. already vegetarians have a reputation for being snobs. what do you have to gain from being snobby?

>a way of life that

that's not healthy eating. go eat a bucket of fries or chips or whatever and wash it down with a gallon of oil and tell me how healthy you are.

man, summa the things you can make with soy...

I am not saying that we need to isolate anyone, all I am saying is that people who eat animals are not vegetarians. No matter how infrequently they do it. The same way I do not think men can be feminists, but they can be whole hearted supporters of, people who eat animals are not vegetarians, but they can support the movement.

there's different levels of vegitarianism.....the most hardcore being vegan, meaning no nothing that was ever living or came from a living thing, they're the people that don't drink milk even....next is lacto-ovo , which is what i am, no actual meat , but we do drink milk, eat eggs and cheese ect. then comes the ones that eat only white meat, such as chicken or fish, i think there's another level after that but i can't remmember what it's all about......

>there's different levels of vegitarianism.....the most
>hardcore being vegan

Actually there is a "level" that is even more "hardcore" than being vegan, it is called "fruitarian". The basic belief in being fruitarian is that you do not eat anything that was once living. This basically means that you do not eat anything where you had to kill the animal (obvious) or even the plant in order to subsist from it. This would include famouse root vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, beets, parsnips, and well the list could go on forever. In order to eat something such as lettuce the fruitarian would have to make sure that the lettuce leaves were cut so that the plant as a whole were to live. Same witch vegetables such as chard, kale, , broccoli and other vegetables where you can simply cut the head off without actually "killing" the plant as a whole.

I myself am vegan, have been for 5 years now; vegetarian for much longer than that. I understand the logic of being fruitarian I just have not been able to progess to that level.

If anything I've regressed to being an almost freegan (entirely different post).

Peace,
Chris

In response to Reply # 41


          

>meaning a vegan who oscillates toward
>fruitarian?

No, a freegan is simply someone who only eats animal products
when these products are given to them for free. My main objection to eating animal products is an ethical choice, but if I am given that animal product for free, it's not my money that is supporting something which I do not believe in. Of course there is the arguement that someone still had to pay for that animal product, and that is why I try to avoid accepting free handouts whenever I can. But there are those times when I'm broke, hungry and can't refuse a slice of soycheese (with casein)pizza.

Speaking of soy cheese (someone else mentioned it), vegan cheeses (Soymage, Vegan Rella and Soya Kass has a new vegan line)do not melt very easily. Most soy/rice cheeses have casein, a protein derived from milk, which enables them to melt better.

Try Nutritional yeast. It's that really light-weight yellow in colour stuff. Don't get it confused with brewers yeast! Nutritional yeast is very nutrious (contains lots of beneficial bacteria) and has a "cheezey" flavour. Just mix it with a little water and oil until it takes on the desired consistency.

Peace,
Brady

i completely completely completely understand this. ideally, if someone makes me dinner, and there's only meat, i will even eat it (but this is a BIG, HARD, step, because just bein in the presence of meat makes me feel like i'm trippin or walkin into a jaws movie or somethin)...

cuz there's always been the gift issue; someone buys you a leather somethin or another (i always just give them away right away. there is ALWAYS someone around drooling over the leather-not that i get so many leather gifts, heh heh)

and then people tease me about a pair of leather shoes that i've had for about 12-13 years (i've been veg for 10)...

55. "leather"
In response to Reply # 52


  

          

I don't have any connections for this any more, but I was able when I was vegan occasionally and at a very high price to find leather goods made from animals who died of natural causes. So the big question was, were the purveyors of these goods, who were purporting that the animal wasn't slaughtered, honest? I mean, anyone could stick a label on something that says that.

I also recall a belt that I had, the buckle for which was made from "seasonally shed deer antler."

Ah, those were the days.

Peace.

a few weeks ago, someone asked me if i would eat an animal that was killed accidentally. i thought they were joking! i thought they were just drunk! i had this picture in my head of a bunch of drooling vegetarians sitting roadside or by a cattle farm or somethin so that maybe they could get a burger-- like if a pig happened to fall on a spit you just scored bacon for the next week--

i can't believe people market that stuff!!!

anyway, i wouldn't spend my own money on it cuz i just don't eat meat or wear meat. but then if someone bought it for me or gave it to me (oooooh, my family would LOVE to hear this! this is the kinda thing, like tofurkey, that they just dig and dig and dig)

i think i would just plain be distressed

56. "buddhist principles"
In response to Reply # 50


  

          

Certain Buddhists, who each day go out with their begging bowls, and who take vows not to kill any living creature, find that they can eat whatever is given to them without spiritual distress, because of the filter that is provided by the charitable giving.

For me, however, begging for my food isn't really an option. I think I have qualms about this working in any society that isn't structured to incorporate it.

Peace.

see, i think i would want to eat meat for the community, and it depends on the context of the begging as to the communality of the thing (i made up that word. does it work?)

charity just freaks me out. i read a quote once that was something like "what is wonting in this world is justice, not charity," and i deeply believe this

i am very stuck on fending for myself. but, if i was dependent on begging for food, i would eat what i got. because ya gotta eat to live. but if you're always dependent on begging you lose all your power of choice. how could a person choose to be a begger and a vegetarian??? (i know very little about buddhism)

61. "Giving over control"
In response to Reply # 58


  

          

Letting go of attachment is a very important Buddhist principle. So the practice of eating only what is given to you works within that, especially in a Buddhist country where living simply is not only seen as a good in itself but is something that many people do for at least a part of their lives.

Giving from the heart is another basic principle. There's a whole doctrine surrounding gracious giving -- all charitable acts are good, but particularly when you're giving away more than your excess or discards. This is also, incidentally, one of the corporal works of mercy in Catholicism (prayer, fasting and almsgiving).

I'm always intrigued by the commonalities (similar to but not the same as your made up word) between religions, which so often can be found at the highest level of idealism even if not in practice.

Peace.

On a semi-related note...

I remember reading somewhere that Buddhist monks have to accept whatever is given to them during their begging rounds. There was an anecdote about a monk who ate a leper's thumb that fell in his begging bowl, and the Buddha himself supposedly died from food poisoning--either from poisonous mushrooms or bad meat.

45. "RE: WHAT AM I??"
In response to Reply # 42


          

there is a name and a definition for everything. ya want a name, there is one for it. but screw it, really, eat what ya wanna eat. whatever feels right to you.

i am happy, though, to see that the webster definition allows some freedom. sometimes i get a little concerned that super restricted eating is too much like eating disorder stuff or maybe that vegetarianism is attached too much to virtue...

it happens quite often..


OSHUN..the only reason i am stating this is..veggies that eat only veggies would NOT want fish and shrimp in their food...respecting that...you as a sometimes meat eater should be cordial enough to ask if they used things that didn't touch red meat..NOT veggie utensils...do you see my point?..did that make sense..

Cause if it's important enough to you..most restaurants will comply..that is all.

Much love,
Kyle

62. "for me"
In response to Reply # 59


  

          

the biggest problem when I was vegetarian/vegan was to get restaurants to tell me whether they used chicken or beef stock in their soups. It didn't take long for me to figure out that I just couldn't rely on what the waiter said, even if the waiter asked the chef. So I never ordered soup at a restaurant, with one exception.

There was one restaurant that served the best soups I've ever had, and always used vegetable stock, but then it was a vegetarian restaurant with lots of vegan options.

Peace.

I've been a lacto-ova vegetarian for 5 years. I still eat cheese. I've tried be a vegan but it's hard especially when eating out anywhere that is not a vegetarian restaurant.

Anyway the question is does anyone know any good brands of soycheese. I've tried a couple and they were not very good.
Thanks.

46. "RE: veggie cheeses"
In response to Reply # 43


          

whaddyawanna use it for? that makes all the difference.

if you can find hemp cheese, though, that stuff rocked my world (hahah dramatic, eh?)-but i think maybe it was pulled?

but the main question, really, is whether you plan to melt the cheese, cook with it, or eat it straight--

Shredded for tacos.
Melted on a garden burger

That's about all. I don't eat that much cheese mainly for the above.
