  • I kicked my vegan friend out and apparently I was out of line?

    Me and her (let's call her Amy) have been friends for about 5 years. Last week her boyfriend kicked her out (she cheated on him). She asked me if she could live with me and I said OK.

    Me and her (let's call her Amy) have been friends for about 5 years. Last week her boyfriend kicked her out (she cheated on him). She asked me if she could live with me and I said OK. Amy became a vegan about a year ago. I wouldn't call myself a true meat eater (the only meat I eat is fish and chicken. The rest of my food is sweet stuff, fruit and veg). I DID say to her that she could buy whatever food stuff and drinks she wanted (I made room for her in the fridge and freezer for her stuff) but don't throw away my stuff. She accepted the offer. Whenever I made my dinner (we made dinner at different times) she would made comments about it, critising, being annoying. I told her that I don't like people who try to convert people into their beliefs (religion, food). She left it. When I got home from work (I work from half 6 in the morning to 3pm. Amy works from home on her computer). I went to get a drink when I opened the fridge ALL of my stuff was gone (milk, chesse etc) and was replaced by vegan stuff. I checked the freezer, cardboards and my stuff was replaced. I demanded answers from Amy and she said that she was making a point and that I was wrong for having things like this. I got mad and threw her and her stuff out. Since then I've had her friends saying I was out of line, and not respecting her and her lifestyle. I told them I don't care about peoples lifestyles as long as they don't convert mine. Atm she's living in a hostel. Was I out of line?

  • Are vegans hippies?

    Best answer: No. Hippies were fun loving, accepting, relaxed folks. They didn't care what the world thought of them, they weren't out to convert others to hippiedom, so they had no reason to lie about their lifestyle. Vegans are judgmental and arrogant. They continually lie about the "benefits" of veganism.... show more

    Vegans are judgmental and arrogant. They continually lie about the "benefits" of veganism. They're more like a religious cult than hippies.

  • Is it bad to not want to be a vegan? Is it hypocritical?

    I mean.. whenever someone starts arguing about why not being a vegan is wrong, what should I tell them? I Know i can never be a vegan. I love meat... what's food without it? Do you think it's hypocritical to think this way?

    Best answer: Ooh tofu! Nom.

    Always freeze your firm and extra-firm tofu, then thaw, before using. Makes it easier to squeeze the water out and opens the tiny pockets in it so it absorbs sauces and flavors.

    I cube mine, dredge it in cornstarch, then saute it in olive oil. It golden crunches on the outside has some chew on the inside.

    I've been loving these asian sauces made by Fusia. I pour a couple tablespoons of the sauce on after it's all golden, heat the sauce through and serve with rice. So good.

    Also, a super easy way to cook the rice is to put 2c. Rice, bit of oil, smidge of grated ginger, dash of turmeric, dash of salt and 3 1/2c of warm water in a larg-ish microwaveable bowl. Heat uncovered! on high for 10 mins, then 25 or 30 % for 15 mins. Don't open the microwave or stir during cooking. It's fantastic.

  • What are some alternatives to vegan meats that aren't soy or gluten based?

    Best answer: Unless you have a soy and/or gluten sensitivity/allergy or Celiac's disease, there is no reason to avoid soy or gluten.

    Best answer: Unless you have a soy and/or gluten sensitivity/allergy or Celiac's disease, there is no reason to avoid soy or gluten.

    All the bad stuff you have read or heard about soy and gluten being bad for you is mostly from people (not doctors) who misunderstand the concept. Soy is very good for you. Some people have developed a sensitivity to soy after eating a lot of it - but my understanding is that organic nonGMO soy is safe to eat in any reasonable amount.

    the issue with gluten is really just the issue with eating grains. Many Americans just eat way too much of it. About 3 - 5 servings of whole grains is recommended. But a bagel in the morning, a sandwich for lunch, and pasta for dinner is already 6 servings. Then there is that midmorning donut, mid-afternoon cookie, and after dinner slice of pie or cake. Skip the bagel and have a serving of oatmeal. Skip the sandwich and have a salad or a wrap. and skip the pasta and spiralize a Zucchini. Oh and of course skip the donuts, cookies, cakes, and pies.

    Best alternative meat is tofu. or a bean burger. But an occasional grain meat isn't going to hurt you.

  • Why do vegans shove their veganism down other people’s throats and try to force people not to eat meat?

    Best answer: I don't shove it down peoples throats and I don't go out of my way to force it upon them but if someone shows an interest then I am willing to talk about it.

    I would try it - just out of curiosity. And I don't attach any negative ethical consequences to lab-grown meat.

    However, I think of lab-grown meat as a distraction. it's not any kind of solution. It will still have all the negative health issues to the individual eating it that regular meat has. And I am assuming it also will have negative environmental consequences. It will use up energy, natural resources, and space. all of which would be better used to grow plants.
