- Vegetarianist nonsense
According to wikipedia…
Has about as much authority as ‘My mate Dave says…’
Not true. The vast majority of wikipedia is very accurate, and it’s usually possible to check out the references on the well written pages. It only tends to be biography stuff which gets a bit rubbish – I can’t see why anybody would write dodgy stuff about the protein content of wheat.
If you don’t object to eating dead animals, then I think it’s important to make best use of them – I do try to eat different cuts such as shin and neck, as well as offal – faggots and liver are particular favourites.
Personally I love offal, but I can understand why lots of people don’t.Posted 4 years agopiemonsterMember

Just caught up on this. Couple of replies,
I’ve learnt something though, as I’d never have considered the seperate tongs at the BBQ thing. So that will be noted for future reference.
That’s really good, and appreciated. Personally, as a veggie, I really don’t want my food covered in animal fat.
What I want to know us why is there no meat option at a vegetarian restaurant!
Because meat eaters aren’t carnivores, they’re omnivores.
Personally, I’ve no problem with balance. I’d welcome a veggie menu that said “meat option available on request” at the bottom.
I mean you go to any other restaurant then they cater for veggies!
Sadly, that’s not always true. As a recent example, I was on a training course today where all week the main meal options were two beef dishes. I asked about veggie options and was told “chips or a jacket potato”.
Here is a BIG figure from the USA:
Field corn (blah blah)
On a point of note here is the US corn thing is atypical and artificial. Farmers are encouraged to grow a disproportionately large amount of corn for economic reasons.Posted 4 years ago
