You can be a tree hugger and eat real food, but you'll get no respect from anyone.  You need to determine first if you're enough of an epic douchebag to commit to being vegan and hang out with people that the rest of the world despises for being monumental jerks, or if you'd rather eat burgers and have friends that wash regularly.

Sushi is great, ain't got sick yet eating it.

Homebrew is great, ain't got sick yet drinking it.

Hippie chicks are great, got a cold once eating one.

Learn about where your food comes from, then eat whatever the fark you want to eat.

If, after gathering reliable and objective information about them, you're cool with factory farming, GMOs, artificial colors, gluten, sulfates, sulfites, HFCS, etc., feel free to eat what tastes good to you, even if it has that stuff in it. If you're not cool with something, don't eat food that has that in it.

And for Christ's sake, don't pontificate to others about what you do eat or don't eat. Nobody gives a crap.

You know you can eat vegetarian and not have to eat weird stuff, right? For example, you can have a plate of nice pasta with chunky tomato marinara sauce, mushrooms, and peppers with sorbet as dessert.

Don't know about being vegan.. but if you want to be a vegetarian try Indian food.

That salad crap that people try at first to be a vegetarian is awful for you.

If the person is a rational, well-rounded person, they shouldn't need to crave the acceptance of anyone, let alone "normal people".

My dad made tofu once when I was a kid.  Then he tried to get the rest of the family to taste test it before he'd eat any of it.  It ended up going in the trash, and nobody ever farked with taco night, ever again.  The end.

Back in the early 90's my hippy friends were all drinking this nasty home made health tonic. It was made by filling a bowl with water and growing some kind of fungus spore on top. Everyone was growing this crap in open containers in their nasty hippy kitchens. eventually there was some kind of cross contamination that lead to many cases of diarhea/vomiting and put one person in the emergency room. One of the hippies told me that it wasn't cross contamination at all but the 'medicine' helping the body to naturally purge toxins.
Long story short- don't take any health advice from hippies.

Keep in mind subby- a nice thick venison steak from a deer you killed locally is way better for the environment than any certified organic produced grown three states away and delivered to your local Whole Foods in a refrigerated truck.

Yeah, an extended family member of mine swore by it. Until he spent the night in the ER pissing blood out his butt. SHOCKED he was. None of us were.

Some of that food is pretty tasty.  Eat what you like.  Try to be healthy.  Don't give a crap about what anyone thinks about what you like to eat.

True story: I worked with a guy who ate nothing but fruit. Apples, bananas, pineapple, pears, peaches and melon. He had massively bad gas all the time and thought it was funny to gross us out. He took multiple splattery shiats in the restroom daily, splattering the entire bowl and underside of the seat. The smell in the restroom (that we all had to use) was just vile. And he loved to get in his first bathroom visit as early in the day as possible. Management did nothing, and our personal requests to him were just met with proud smiles. He truly thought it was funny. I forget if he quit or got transferred elsewhere. We were just grateful he left.

Don't be that guy.

Buy local when you can. "Organic" food that comes from 2,000 miles away is sort of a was on the whole good/bad scale.

Was = wash.

Cant type tonight

Raw milk itself isn't bad. It can be safer than pasturized. Just be sure of where it is coming from and the diet of the cows.

Buy local, buy grass fed, and you too can be a happy hippie while still enjoying Babe and Bessie...

"Grass feed" is a source of great amusement to this old ex-midwestern boy. When I was young, eating grass-feed beef meant you too poor to buy the good stuff.

Aw, screw it! Have the best of both worlds.

Eat Chinese or Asian. They're heavy on veggies and low on meat. The majority of their meals are low in fats and cholesterol, high in assorted spices and the veggies often cooked crisply -- so as not to loose too much nutrition.

Buy a wok and learn how to use it. Load it up with fresh cut broccoli, sliced cabbage, snow pea pods, some sweet onions, green peppers and celery, toss in a bit of chicken and a splash of healthy oil. Toss in whatever spices you like. Serve it on a bed of white boiled or steamed rice and pig out!

Many of their dishes contain shrimp, crab or fish. They're low on beef but high on chicken. Some are just veggies with tasty, thick sauces.

It's the best of both worlds.

Subby, you can eat a healthier diet, easily. You don't have to subscribe to any quasi-newfangled religion to do it. If you're motivated by health and well-being just simply make a point of staying away from junk food, fast food and processed food. Buy most of your food from the perimeter of the supermarket -- produce, lean meats, chicken, etc.

It works for me and I'm not a tree-hugger. I've slimmed down by changing my diet this way. I don't miss sugars or crap foods. Cravings go away after a week.

I hope this helps you out!

Once upon a time lobster was the nasty stuff coastal poor people ate when they couldn't get protein any other way.

They used to feed it to prison inmates.

The worst side effect will come on a few months when unforeseen circumstances will force you to eat fast food. You'll suppress the gag reflex easily enough, but your stomach will not be your friend for a couple of days. I still can't drive by a Taco Bell without wishing I'd brought a change of shorts.

Actually if your vegetarian or vegan diet is half-decent than taco bell should be fine. The only thing taco bell has that your diet won't is a higher fat content. There is nothing magically colon-blowing about that. Most people who experience issues with taco bell are getting hit by the high fiber in the beans relative to their usual crap diet, but a vegetarian diet should handle beans with ease.

It's not the beans, it's the "cheese" sauce. Holy shiat, that stuff could clean an engine.

//They have real, actual cheese. But they only put it on the burrito if you ask for it.

For me, it was the insanely high fat content and the brain-puckeringly high salt content. Probably half of what I eat is fresh, raw veggies. About another quarter is cooked veggies, beans, rice, etc. I don't eat very many things which have a label and an ingredients list. So sucking down a Taco Bell lard bomb was not something my gut was used to. Bleh.
