I'm a vegetarian and it's always awkward at my friends' houses because I don't eat most of their food. I don't want to be rude, either, so I just nibble on cheese and corn while everyone else is digging into their *whisper* dead cow. =/ I can't even imagine how difficult it must be to only have vegan options! Plus, you never know what they put on the food O_o I wish I had advice for you, but you're probably doing all you can by bringing over your own dish =[. But good job for sticking with it! Being a vegan/vegetarian has great rewards ;D

I think once you get older you will find people who are genuinely like yourself. Most of my good friends are vegetarian or transitioning vegetarian. Usually people who are alike find each other:p

Original Post by cmmutter:

I have tried on a few different occasions to be vegetarian, but I can't seem to last for more than four months. From what I've been told by my doctors it has to do with my blood type. Apparently type O+ blood needs tons of protein.

I wish I could be veg, but after a while I just start craving a steak.

There are two types of vegetarians: processed and non-processed

Processed are ones that choose a lot of soycheeses, mock meats, ready made veggie meals and eat chips etc compared to nuts, fresh fruits veggies, seeds (hemp one of my favs), beans, etc

When I first started out I was more or less a processed vegan. I never felt quite satisfied, but as I learnt more I made wiser decisions. A lot of non-processed foods have a high amount of protein if that is what u are after. I get my protein from seeds (hemp protein), nuts, and occasionally beans. 

Perhaps u are choosing things that don't fill u up and satisfy you? Just a suggestion..

 

Back to the real question:

1. environment/health- tie for number one!

2. compassion - if you can't eat ur dog why would u eat a cow?

Vegetarian For Raw Vegans: what to do with all that leftover nut pulp! Aug 11 2008

-add to smoothies

- make crackers with it (as you said)

My recipe-basal-flax-nut pulp-salt-onions-tomato (fresh and sundried) = very savory!

-mix it with nut crust type things e.g. walnut/date/nut pulp 

- if all else fails compost (if you don't have a composter maybe throw it into your vegetable garden or flower bed)

 

p.s. I've read nutritional yeast isn't "raw"- do you have any thoughts or brands that you use that you think are raw?

Vegetarian Veg*ns, do you consider yourself 'picky'? Aug 10 2008

I don't think so. For example, people who choose to eat healthy. No junk food, are not considered picky eater.. perhaps selective eaters. Picky eaters, I think are generally closed minded eaters who are afraid to try different things. I am willing to try all sorts of cuisine, spices, etc as long as they don't have meat in them.

That site is awesome. How much protein are you averaging when you eat that way. To me it seems like you are only getting about 10-15g because you are not eating much nuts.

Everyone should care for the environment. If we all die tomorrow because we live in our own filth... the planet will still live on without us.. as all planets have and will always.

So not true. Planets die all the time. There was once a time when Mars looked vastly different... now it is a dying planet.

I think I was perhaps not clear. I was trying to convey that nothing last forever and the universe is dynamic. It Earth could explode, or We could pollute it and die. I think for our sake, it is best to lessen the latter.

"If it dosen't bother you and you enjoy it why change???"

Here are some reasons why one would change their views and give up something if you like it.

You could say the same about smoking. Why give it up if you like it? Well one would give it up for reasons 1. health- smoking =death, 2. costly, 3. supporting evil industry that tries to promote cigs to children

 

Same could be said about cutting out seafood...

1. environmental- seafood farming, fishing etc are very detrimental to fragile ocean/lake ecosystem

2. ethical- you believe animals should not be hurt

3. health- you mention omega 3- there are other more superior forms of omega 3-6-9 e.g. hemp protein that are also low in calories, and do not have contaminates such as mercury. Flax seeds, chia seeds etc all are good sources of omegas.

- this is just an aside. I (personally) do not understand how two people (1 veg and 1 carnivore) could co-exist in a relationship. The lifestyle is so different. The views in terms of environment, health, ethical ideas for such a lifestyle change are not consistent with a carnivore.

However, I can understand if you are just vegetarian because you cannot, or do not like meat. In addition, perhaps changed your lifestyle into the relationship.

Perhaps I don't mind the taste of strong greens as much as you. haha.

I add it in the morning with my berry smoothie, I find the spinach, banana and berrries mask it quite well.

If I am making a smoothie, I just throw the wheatgrass in. I am not sure if that is good in terms of releasing all the nutrients. I am sure it is fine, and I will get more fiber.

No, I have never juiced kale. HAHA.. i usually throw leaves into my smoothies, never the juice. I should try to see how this taste. Wish my stomach luck!

I sprouted quinoa yesterday for fun. I didn't think it would be that easy! It worked like a charm. They sprout within a day! 

What do you do with it once it's sprouted?  I love quinoa.  Sprouted quinoa sounds heavenly.

How I sprouted it: it's a little makeshift but it works...

I washed the grain/seed and let it sit for 30 mins, then i drained it and rinsed it again.

I put in on a scotts towel (moist) and let it sit in indirect sun

Sprouted 1 day and had it for lunch the next day!

 

I put it in Mache salad (by the epic root company) with other veggies and walnuts and home made asian dressing- it added a hutty, raw seed texture - delicious!

Quick comment:

I am pretty sure black honey is just the type of nectar the bees are taking.

Molasses is not honey.

bee pollen is stuck on the bee's leg and they remove it before coming into the hive usually- they are meticulous that way. Not technically vegan. bees are not harmed in processing honey.. more insects are harmed driving the car- check the grill.
