I thought this thread was about a special at an "all girls bar".
I'm into the "More Meat Mondays" myself!
My way of helping the environment.
I think I've been told off. Who'd have thunk that someone would tell me what I need to be eating?
Oh it's pretty common. If I'm with a group of people and we go out to eat, I don't order meat and people apparently think that's weird because they always ask why. I don't jump up and start testifying I just say I don't eat meat. Most people are cool with that but inevitably there are some who start blowing me some **** about it. This is not an uncommon occurrence. My wife has had this happen too, we've always been mystified about it.
I'm not being argumentative just relating my experiences. I like to think we're all friends here, whatever our diets.
Yeah, it's much more common to be a vegetarian in a group of omnivores, at a restaurant that caters to omnivores and to be called out for asking for the vegetarian menu options than to be an omnivore in a vegetarian restaurant.
I've been an omnivore in a vegetarian restaurant many times, completely accidentally. I always feel like a jackass looking desperately for something, ANYTHING on the menu that resembles my definition of "food."
Similar problems crop up when I accidentally end up in a place that serves only cold foods. Lunchmeat-style sandwiches, salads, and wraps aren't my idea of a good time. Maybe some soup? Or at least some fries? ;(
Hmm. I think I'm already on that one... I had no idea I was indestructible!
I eat meat because Homo sapiens sapiens is not a vegetarian. Last time I looked I was a Homo sapiens sapiens.
I quite often go days at a time without eating meat (only because it's expensive ), but I don't think I could ever consciously decide not to eat meat - even for a day. Consciously giving up something guarantees it stays in my head until I can have it again.
:!: I think this is as close to discussing religion as we can get in this forum.
MMmmm... Caveman. I find the brow ridge to be especially tasty.
Wow...I'm reading all of the posts on this thread. Lot's of D-Bags.
I get tired of folks who think my vegetarian diet means I am anti meat.
I cook meat for my dogs, and most of my friends eat meat.
It seems strange to me how someone could be upset about ones diet choice.
I suppose anything can be politicized.
Just eat what you need to eat and let others do the same....
As the Fonze would say-
My original post about Meatless Monday linked to a web site that asked the question:
Are you willing to reduce meat consumption 15% in order to improve personal health and the health of our planet?
The answers in this forum seem to fall into two categories:
2. I'm already vegetarian or mainly veggie.
I didn't note anyone who's contemplating switching teams, besides me. I feel guilty about my carbon footprint.
I normally do meatless Mondays without trying to, I normally only eat one meal a day maybe two on Wednesday and Friday and three on the weekends. If I try and think about not eating meat on Monday I will want it more but if I just continue as I normally do I usally don't eat meat on days where I only eat one meal just alot of cereal. It seems to be all this college student has time to eat anymore.
I haven't had a nice steak or even bacon in ages, now my mouth is watering.
So I guess to answer your question yes I do Meatless Mondays just now on purpose.
What's college coming to?! I spent most nights (midnight to dawn) in the computer lab. Yah, I am a nerd. But around 2AM every night we'd scrape together the money to order pizza. I still can't look at a pizza these days -- I overdosed.
It isn't that I chose to eat one meal a day I just am to busy in classes from 9 in the morning to 9 at night to take time off to eat.
I don't think I will ever be overdosed on pizza, last year during the summer I went a month straight of only eating pizza and pizza rolls for lunch and dinner and still loved the stuff. I hope I never get tired of pizza, it just tastes so good, the first thing I am goin to do when I get on spring break is order a bunch of pizza and sit down to rot my brain playing Xbox Live for a week.
I feel like I am in withdrawal.
Xbox Live? What's college coming to? When I was in college we always scraped together enough money to spend spring break in Daytona.
Drunken coeds. Now you're really making me nostalgic!
I try to go at least one day a week without meat(slowly trying to add more days). It's mostly for health reasons, but environmental concerns have given me an extra push. I try to be aware of my environmental impact, and reduce it whenever possible anyway.
