"Proof I need to pay closer attention as I'm scrolling through Google Reader: I read "Eat Humane: Food Guides for Meat, *Dogs*, and Dairy.

Yikes! I didn't think this was that kind of website."

really, there's no difference. dogs and cows - both animals. in some countries it's absurd to eat cows just as much as americans find it absurd to eat dog. how about not eating any animals instead of picking favorites?

anyways, gross.

and there's no "humane" meat. it's humane not to kill them at all. it's ridiculous.

my 2 dogs are vegan (completely vegan since day 1).
they eat vegan kibble and get legumes for protein.

the longest living dog was vegan, by the way.

vegans eat NO animal products and don't wear them either.

vegetarians eat cheese, dairy eggs and no meat. it doesn't make sense to draw lines between animal products.

if you're vegetarian for ethics, you should just realize it's easier to be vegan. no trying to justify why eggs and dairy are okay, and probably fish too for some reason classify as "vegetarian".

just simple vegan. no animals all the way.

sorry but you can't be "pescatarian/vegan".

vegans never ever eat or wear animal products. not even sometimes, not even for special occasions or when you're really hungry and there's nothing but fish around. fish is not a food for vegans.

technically people who eat fish are still not true vegetarians because fish isn't a vegetable or dairy product but feel free to call yourself a precatarian. i have no problem there :)

saying you're "/vegan" causes confusion and this is probably why as a vegan people have to ask if I eat fish as well. Just trying to keep the misinformation down.

tofu ricotta is much better and better for you.
1 block of tofu has about 40 grams of protein and almost no carbs. and no cholesterol!

here's my tofu ricotta recipe:
Tofu Ricotta

•2 T olive oil
•1 pkg firm tofu (water drained, pressed)
•1 can sliced mushrooms (small can, about 1 1/2" tall)
•1 can sliced black olives (small can, about 1 1/2" tall)
•3 T tahini
•1 T nutritional yeast
•1/2 t salt
•1/8 t pepper
•1 t sage

Whirl them all in the foor processor and it's ready for manicotti, lasagna or pizza.

if you're lactose intolerant you could try tofu ricotta, cashew cheese, or the incredible daiya cheese.
Also, pesto and as many veggies as you can find and stack on top.

for egg replacer just use a mix of 1/2 t cornstarch to 2 T water.

You just need this for binding.
And it's totally worth it to make it vegan!

can not stress this enough. we got stuck in a craftsman that we loved but after living in there for 2 months foundout it was not up to code, never inspected, none of the outlets were grounded, lots of windows didn't open, there wasn't a deadbolt on the inside and a million other problems because the owner did everything himself (including the electric installation and work because it was cheaper. but it's illegal because he didn't have an electicians license AND he didn't even know what "grounded" meant.

The landlord seemed ok at first but we had to keep asing for him to fix things (because nothing was working or done correctly) and when the city found out he was illegally leasing an uninspected house he refused to fix anything. so we threatened to sue him. he gave us all of our money back (rent deposits) and we headed for the hills.

This thread makes me so sad.

Sleek1, why do people expect vegetarians to "just have veggies" at a dinner. Being a vegetarian for allergy or ethical reasons should be approached the same. A good chef/host considers his/her guests dietary needs before the menu is set. Because the husband is a new vegetarian, of course the hostess wasn't aware. But your comment irked me a bit. I just had to say "everyone, stop assuming vegetarians will just eat sides like vegetables and be satisfied, please."

Vegetarians like to eat (and eat a lot) too. And just because a person is vegetarian doesn't mean they like plain vegetables more than anyone else.

Vegans and vegetarians are well aware that sometimes people don't understand how to make "vegetarian/vegan" food so they usually will bring a huge casserole or something to contribute and every one wins.
