Is anyone here VEGAN?

 By: Mostel : January 2nd, 2020-14:44
Dare I even mention the provocative WORD? Or perhaps, like myself, you are 'taking a break' from animal products as many of us do this time of year after the indulgence of the holidays? ? Any fun food you recommend? I do not like the word VEGAN, btw... to... 

Yep, i am.

I do really like fastfood actually, so when i dont care about my health i eat many Hamburgers. I personally prefer the incredible burger from Nestle over the beyond-version for its healthier ingredients. As a vegan, you can basically eat whatever you want... 

I am all in favour of people making right choices and ethical eating.

 By: Bounce781 : January 2nd, 2020-15:22
I eat meat but many of my friends are vegan (or vegetarian). My only reason for piping up here is a rebuttals the “slaughterhouse video comment”. Before you get too self-righteous about avoiding meat, you might want to check out the same YouTube for video... 

I couldn't possibly eat a vegan diet, more like the caveman diet for me

 By: mpg13 : January 2nd, 2020-15:31
That said ethics are important. If possible I purchase meat from animals that are raised and slaughtered humanely. I would never knowingly purchase kosher or halal meat as the method of slaughter is barbaric.

Thanks mpg [nt]

When a cattle eats 16 kg food to "produce" just 1 kilo beef,

 By: Reuven Malter : January 2nd, 2020-15:54
As a meat eater you get that slaughterhouse thing plus the "industrial vegetable farm"-thing because animals do not grow bigger without lots of food and medicine. I think people should avoid harming others, so no, not every non-meat product is ethically c... 

One of my choices is... DO NOT JUDGE

 By: Mostel : January 2nd, 2020-19:16
This is a very personal choice ( about health) and NOT POLITICAL. Thanks Bounce.

Thank you Reuven

As I said, I try to avoid the word Vegan, which is divisive, except for this post, which--let's face it--a provocative post is fun... but yes... I am with you... and for whoever is reading this... it is a slow, gradual, cumulative journey... and as much a... 

Mostel, thanks for your moderate comment

Writing in a way everyone is "ok" with 👍

I’m not Vegan but I stopped eating meats and animal fats 4 years ago

 By: descartes1 : January 2nd, 2020-15:39
I eat lots of seafood and very lean turkey or chicken, along with non-animal based fats and proteins. Basically a Mediterranean diet. I eat like this due to a heart issue, but I was never really a big meat eater.

The choices are endless

 By: Mostel : January 2nd, 2020-19:18
And the recipes are also endless... thanks.

Interesting. descartes...

This February will mark thirty years . . .

. . . as a pescetarian - with lapses over the holidays. Fond of most vegetables . . . my favorite dish is guacamole.

I just looked it up because i didnt knew the word.

 By: Reuven Malter : January 2nd, 2020-16:25
Now i know you are a true trendsetter since the word "pescetarian" is not even thirty years old - but the concept is obviously much older. I would think Dr. No could have been a pescetarian back then in 1962 as well. He at least looks like one. Very cool!... 

If 'perfect' is defined as 'minimally essential', then . . .

 By: Dr No : January 2nd, 2020-16:39
. . . Dr No's guacamole . . . . . . is literally a perfect dish. Consumed with carrot, celery, and daikon radish, a large helping contains virtually every nutrient one needs. Delicious, too. ;-) Of course, man does not live by guac alone. Garbanzo bean sa...  

Wow!!! You should write a cookbook:

"Eating while checking the time" Your pictures are very nice, thank you!

Actually, I've posted a few recipes on TimeOut in the distant past . . .

 By: Dr No : January 2nd, 2020-16:50
. . . and they should come up under a search for 'guacamole' and 'tuna salad'. I believe there are others, but can't think of them off the top of my head.

Miguel was to cooking what Dufour is . . .

. . . to watchmaking. There was nothing fancy or exotic about his dishes. But flavor? Tops.

Thanks for sharing dear Art

 By: renerod : January 7th, 2020-10:44
And thanks for delighting us with the knowledge about Miguel and his craft. Life is richer with people like you and Miguel. My best regards. René

Loking good Art! [nt]

Let's get back to watches so we don't have to delete more emotion-laden threads

 By: cazalea : January 2nd, 2020-17:20
Avoid red-flag topics! If the word Vegan is too emotion-provoking, don’t post about it! Avoid talking about “slaughterhouse videos on YouTube” Avoid insulting others by saying things like “halal and kosher are barbaric” - it’s fair to have an opinion but ... 

Well... this is the food and wine forum

 By: Mostel : January 2nd, 2020-19:21
Respectfully... M. I am not thin skinned, like Chicken, lol

Great idea. Let’s get back to Watches where there are no controversies. 😀😜

What about that alligator strap ban in California? Or AP Code 11:59 ? Joking of course. Great suggestion, Art! Happy New Year everyone !!!

that's one view...

I love cooking vegan dishes a lot, especially desserts. I love cooking vegan because it is very creative! It reminds of Auburn (or Duesenberg) Cord as both are forced to create creative solutions because of a lack of supplies. I almost feel like a laborat...  

yes, what a great reply... (beyond black and white)

 By: Mostel : January 2nd, 2020-19:24
I think and agree that this is the most creative way of looking at the subject. Absolutely!!! And it is the most inspiring way as well. But I did not ask about it for any reason other than to see--perhaps--if there was a recipe or a way of thinking/imagin...

Hi Mostel, my wife is Vegan and it has absolutely nothing to do with animal welfare or ethics

 By: NickO : January 2nd, 2020-19:58
It was 100% health driven and, boy, has it made a difference for her! I am simply amazed at the health benefits of a plant-based diet: her blood pressure is 110 / 70, her total cholesterol is under 100, her good HDL cholesterol is off the charts, her rest...

I echo the sentiments shared by others in growing weary of the factory farm way of doing things. There is an underlying problem with having no connection between the food on our plates, and how it actually got there. I have been working to eat meat-protei...

Hi, I am not vegan but I have about 4 vegan meals per week. Partly it is health- reducing red meat intake, saturated, etc. Partly it is about the environment- reducing the demand for meat, reducing carbon footprint, etc. And partly because I do love tofu ...
