I am not vegetarian, but I love vegetables. And on most things about them, I agree with you. They are tasty, especially asparagus. I don't hate it if I get stuck chewing on one end though.
[QUOTE=Shadaez;28314532]Tomatoes are a fruit, botanically.[/QUOTE] And they're a vegetable, constitutionally :v: [quote]Nix v. Hedden, 149 U.S. 304 (1893), was a decision by the Supreme Court of the United States that decided that the tomato should be classified under customs regulations as a vegetable rather than a fruit. The Court's unanimous opinion held that the Tariff Act of 1883 used the ordinary meaning of the words "fruit" and "vegetable", under which a tomato is classified as a vegetable, instead of the technical botanical meaning.[/quote]

I love me some Vegie Burgers :v:

[QUOTE=Shoupie;28271937]I never liked imitation meat. If I wanted meat, I would eat real meat. Some of it tastes too real to me.[/QUOTE] That's because they are actually made out of people.
Would it cost more money to be a vegetarian? You would be surprised with how much vegetables and all actually costs sometimes. Anyway since I am in college away from home, I can't really afford meat that much, but I started to cook tagliatelle pasta, and throw it into a wok with garlic, onion, red peppers and whatever other veg you want, and then put in a good bit of light and dark soy sauce with a tiny drop of nam pla fish sauce. Taste like having sex with you girlfriend in your mouth. And bum bum.
Not a vegetarian, but I love me some vegetarian food and vegtables. Here is my homemade recipe for broccoli soup. INGREDIENTS: Broccoli, Salt, Pepper(optional), Shredded cheese (optional), Onions (optional), Chives (optional), Olive oil (optional), Toasted bread (I prefer a Fench baguette, optional) STEPS TO SUCCESS: Boil broccoli in salt water until the broccoli is able to be easily cut. (save the broccoli water to use as natural vegetable stock) Remove the broccoli then put it in the blender to be pureed. I recommended blending at a manual setting to have the consistency of your choice. Thats it. You're done. Put into a bowl and garnish with whatever you'd like. Sprinkle some cheese, garnish with salt and pepper, cut chives then sprinkle some, saute onions to golden brown then put a few rings on top, or have a little spiral of olive oil. All of those taste very good and are equally as awesome. I also recommended adding corn, potatoes, or carrots. In the boiling stage of the recipe to make vegetable soup.
Over-Run, I actually think it's cheaper, but maybe that's because of what I choose to buy. The next time you go shopping, make a list of the things you buy, including meat, along with the price. Then cross out all of the meat items and take away the price. You'll notice a difference. Of course, then you have to add in the price of more food to replace the meat, but even if that ends up being a lot, it'll end up cheaper or the same. I like that, riceyrice! I'll put it in the OP. :)
I could never not eat meat. It's far too delicious. And god forbid no bacon? That's insane. What meaning is there to life without bacon? And steak? And ribs and roast beef... mmm meat.
Such a constructive, helpful comment. Thanks for sharing.

For example, you can freeze meat and it keeps for a long time, but produce goes bad relatively quickly. I buy a lot of ground beef, freeze most of it, and I can get a good 3-4 months worth out of meals from it.

[editline]28th February 2011[/editline] If you rely on prepared foods being vegetarian is probably going to cost more, but if you can cook it is way cheaper if you know what you're doing.
[QUOTE=SigmaLambda;28308039]hummus kicks ass but watch out because some companies make it out of garbanzo beans without clearly labeling it as such and that stuff is strong and not like chickpea hummus at all[/QUOTE] Garbanzo beans and chick peas are the same thing, different name. Hummus is ridiculously easy to make if you have a food processor, I like to add jalapenos and cumin to mine. Maybe I'll make some tomorrow.
I fucking love asparagus best veggie ever.
[QUOTE=backspace78;28392943]I fucking love asparagus best veggie ever.[/QUOTE] makes your pee smell bad though
I'm probably going to go vegetarian (for the third time) after this weekend. I feel [i]so[/i] guilty eating meat. It's becoming harder and harder. Life is a beautiful, special thing and I don't want to be responsible for ending it.
Well good luck! We support you and can help you along. :)
Thanks! :love: I had a wonderful vegetable chow mein today with black bean sauce :keke:
I don't like to bump old threads but I've been eating so many veggies. Lots of cauliflower, lots of morning glory. Morning glory is a pretty flower. I used to see a lot in Georgia, but apparently you can make some pretty bomb soup with it.
Lentils are the shit. [img]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3258/3202105765_9da081d64d.jpg[/img]

They go well with carrots, rice and/or corn. Add a little lemon juice and spices to that and you've got something pretty nice. Legumes in general kick ass, going to soak some great northern beans for tomorrow.
About that Hummus, I have that on a monthly basis since my parents are from Iraq, delicious healthy stuff right there :).
[QUOTE=phantompain5;28740698]About that Hummus, I have that on a monthly basis since my parents are from Iraq, delicious healthy stuff right there :).[/QUOTE] I have pakistani neighbors and I have the urge to ask them if they could make me hummus every day. I LOVE HUMMUS.
Life long vegetarian here. I'm an odd case really. I was brought up vegetarian by my parents and when they asked me if I wanted to eat meat at about 2 years old I decided to carry on without really knowing why. To this day I still don't have a concrete reason as to why I don't eat meat. If the animal wasn't battery farmed I really don't care whether it's killed for meat or not. My guess is that I just don't see meat as food in the same way a meat eater doesn't see wood as food. It's just a substance I don't eat and probably never will. Despite this me and my friends like to put it down to my hatred of plants rather than a love of animals :v:
