BAM! Magnesium for life!
CSA pick up for today :D
oh yeah. CSAs are the ish. Want an easier and cheaper way to eat better? Join one!
LOOK FOR PRODUCTS THAT
ARE CERTIFIED HUMANE- RAISED AND HANDLED= COWS ARE GRASS-FED, HAPPY AND HEALTHY. THE ALTERNATIVE IS FACTORY FARMING AS YOU SEE IN THE PHOTO BELOWNOT MADE OF DEAD ANIMALS. EAT HUMANELY!
Fixed that for ya
OH, OK… I guess the 99.999999999999999999% of the world will MAGICALLY change their mind just because you “fixed it for us”. Wait, no? OMG, we are SHOCKED, S H O C K E D I TELL YOU!!! Get off your high horse, please. How much faux-meat do you or holier-than-though people like you, eat a day? That stuff is infinitely worse for you than any factory farmed meat is (although that MAY be a stretch as CAFO is horrible both ethically AND health-wise). How about nutritional yeast for “cheese”? We don’t promote either one.
What do you think would happen to cows, chickens, pigs, lambs if they were all suddenly freed, lol. They’d die of starvation or other animal predators. In the case of pigs, they would manifest their genetic expression for the wild and “become” boar-esque and would have to be hunted because they’d rummage through city trash. It would be nice and cute AS THE PICTURE STATES if people simply stopped but this is what we call the real world and I don’t know what color the sky is in yours but in ours, people from all over the world. from indigenous tribes to cleanest-eating athletes consume animal products. Wake up and smell reality, please; we promote HEALTH not a political agenda. One of us is a practicing nutritionist and won’t be harping military-esque propaganda at people with broken metabolism who simply want to get healthier like “OH YOU’RE FAT?!?! STOP EATING MEAT, ASS&%*$”. Shouldn’t happen, can’t happen, WON’T happen :)
You actuall expect me to believe you’re some kind of organization? If you are you need to work on your PR because you are a childish bunch of fucktrumpets. Give me a minute to stop laughing so hard I’m crying and I’ll take you point by point.
Okay I’m good. I’m actually planning on having a boca burger for lunch, let me give you the ingredients\ and your “nutritionist” can point to the ingredients that are worse for my body than meat would be.
Water (ooh, dangerous!), soy protein (deadly!), salt (help I’m dying!), dried onions, yeast, sesame oil. Okay go, point to which one is going to be harmful to me. I rarely eat nutritional yeast, but just out of curiosity, could you tell me what actually is bad for you in it? (My guess is you can’t but go ahead and try.)
No one expects the entire world to go vegan at once. There has, however, been a gradual decrease in the demand for meat. Does anyone over at your “organization” understand how supply and demand works? That means that the less people buy meat, the less animals will be bred to feed the demand. Even if it were a sudden, drastic decrease, no one would release the animals into the wild, as they’re domesticated. The obvious solution (if you have two brain cells to rub together) is to spay/neuter the animals and let them live out their lives in captivity.
You’re trying to argue that humanely raising all meat is more sustainable than a vegan diet? That’s laughable. Let’s pretend we give cows the space that they should have. Let’s say a quarter of an acre each—not ideal, but a lot better than what most cows have now. There were 34.1 million cows slaughtered in the US alone in 2012. (Source) They would require 8.5 MILLION ACRES—more than the state of Maryland. And that’s JUST for living space, not including the crops that are grown to feed them (which by the way, makes up 75% of the total grain produced in the US, source). Also keep in mind that would be for cattle ALONE. So tell me again how raising animals in a TRULY humane and free range way is more sustainable than veganism?
Veganism is healthy. If you had a real nutritionist they would be able to tell you that. I’ve been vegan for nine months now and my skin is clearer, my nails are stronger, and my hair is healthier. I haven’t lost weight though, because unlike you fucktrumpets seem to believe, veganism isn’t a fad diet.
Ps— The vegan population here in the US has risen from 1% of the population to 2.5% of the population in 10 years. That’s 7,897,716 people. Should happen, can happen, is happening. :)
That was a pleasure to read! =”)
Two words that collapse your whole argument: bio-individuality. Ipso facto (that’s called logical reasoning) some people can AND SHOULD NOT GO VEGAN. Also, your numbers are inflated as it’s only between 1 and 6 million (that’s a figure from a vegan website, by the way) that are vegan. I agree with your numbers about grain…which is why I mentioned GRASS/PASTURE RAISED ANIMALS, so once again your argument is invalid. Cute try putting words in my mouth about grass fed animals being more sustainable than veganism. No, I didn’t say that and you making that assumption is both silly and sad. But, since I care more about HEALTH over sustainability I say that the majority of people based on their physiological adapation won’t ever go vegan and thrive. So, we got Rich Roll, Brendan Brazier and David Scott and on the flipside we have Mark Allen, Craig Alexander and Chris McCormack who all consume animal products, hmmm what’s the lesson? Listen to your body for H EA L TH
Let’s look at your cancer-inducing boca burger: Non-GMO soy protein CONCENTRATION (yumm) Vital wheat gluten (mmmmm delicious considering so many celiacs out there and the amount of wheat allergies of the past 50 years), Caramel colouring….oh yeah goodie, and YEAST- google “nutritional yeast and cancer”, MSG ? yay, Natural and Artificial coloring and flavoring…LMAO…. wow sounds sooo healthy and nutritious!!!! So that’s what, at least 5 things in that “burger” that will kill you….yay veganism = health, my ass :D Telling an Alaskan Native, whose entire family for 100 generations had no access to legumes like beans and tofu and whose diets consisted of lard, milk and animal protein to eat vegan is…listen here because I will only explain this once… R E T A R D E D.
Nice job arguing against the wild animal problem by the way. What a vegan thing to do, pick and choose what you wanna argue about (childish tactic, to boot). And, only argue things you can give STATISTICS to. Like Mark Twain said, “there are three lies in the world: lies, damn lies and statistics”. If he’d been alive today, he’d add “and vegan statistics”.
Educate yourself before speaking and maybe you won’t sound like a retarded “fucktrumpet” and have the entire web (at least those with unbiased functional brains) laughing at you. I know it’s hard being close minded and stupid but try to help yourself. I mean you became a “junk food” vegan so maybe one day you can stop being delusional and grow up :)
Funny how you can find a TON of people who went from vegan to paleo but very few otherwise, hmm -_-

Dozens of the same post. It works for some, it doesn’t for MOST. Plant based works for my partner and I but it doesn’t for the vast majority. So, we will continue to promote both plant-based nutrition as well as sensible, humanely raised (for health and animal welfare reasons) animal products.
This is written by a non-political vegan nutritionist who cares about humanity’s health not some bleeding heart argument :D
OMG, complete and utter destruction. LMAO at using processed GARBAGE that is no better than any CAFO meat in Boca Burgers as an example of something “healthy”. I cannot stop laughing at this moronic statement…Eat an Amy’s Organics’ pure veggie burger with no poison like nutritional yeast or “textured vegetable protein” or “soy protein concentrate”. Wow, some of you people and your “oh no poor little cow that would die a horrific death in the wild from starvation or a wolf ripping it’s throat out…I’m just going to become nutrient deficient, sick and weak so that AN ANIMAL could live”. And, yes, if you think Boca burgers are healthy than you are too stupid to address iron, magnesium and b12 deficiency in vegans. And before another asshat attempts to argue this, take a look at my posts and see how much PRO-VEGETARIAN content I post This is why people shy away from using the term “vegan”. It’s silly, radical militant nonsense. You are no better than Christian missionaries going into the jungle trying to convert people by killing them…very Christian of them. Being hateful, uneducated cunts is very “vegan” of you.
Rich Roll the Ironman Triathlete and ULTRA5-er:
“And I’d also like to shift the dialogue and perspective on what it means to be vegan. I think the word vegan is a very loaded word and it carries with it a lot of political connotations and a call to activism that not everyone identifies with. And so some people who might benefit from switching up their diet might be offput and decline just because of what they think being a vegan is or what it means to be vegan”
Mac Danzig, UFC fighter and MMA veteran:
“By no means whatsoever, is this ‘the gospel’ of vegan eating… I am just sharing what I do… It may work for you, it may not... Take what works and discard the rest…
Fake meat products: These are usually geared towards people making the change to vegetarianism and are made to mimic various meat products… I usually don’t mess with these all that much, with the exception of “riblets” made by Gardenburger brand…These are NOT healthy by any stretch of the imagination. The process of taking a vegetable protein, isolating it, concentrating it, flavoring it often with harsh and dangerous chemicals is NOT what you want to do to your body.”
Eat whatever YOUR body craves/needs and get the hell off of your holier-than-thou-ness. BAM
This is a video from a NYU Wagner Food Policy Alliance’s GMO Labeling panel discussion from a few weeks ago. At 1:13:30 mark (one hour, 13 minutes, and 30 seconds onward), I proceed to give my two cents about the reality of the Whole Foods labeling news (a reactive not a proactive effort…
BAM! Retro-pwning a geneticist on organic food safety :D
