All due respect Mr. Parrot,

I'm a vegetarian. If you don't know how to cook or eat vegetarian than you will make comments like the above. In fact, some vegetarians don't have very good diets. They eat too much prepared foods and easy carbs/breads/pastas.

Then again, many meat eaters have the same problem. If you think that a vegetarian diet consists of dried bean patties and zucchini, you are missing out on a lot of good food.

Then again, you seem to think that "sushi" must be a meat product so I'll have to simply let you off the hook by concluding my post with a blank stare.

Re: Veggie Diet

I'm all for eatting my veggies, I could empty a salad bar. the last few years of being stranded on land we grew our own veggies and cut our food billto near nothing, but the idea of no meat balls in my spagetti makes my marinara filled blood feel cold.

good luck with it there are a lot of great veggi dishes.

Re: Veggie Diet

I'm not a vegetarian, but i gotta agree with veggieRob- there's some great non-meat stuff out there- you just gotta open your taste buds.

I'm all over a decent steak and i'll hoover a pot of mussels, but don't take your eye off a bowl of hummus or baba ganouj in front of me either- consider it snarfled.

Re: Veggie Diet

Eyes shut, mouth wide open, brain focused inwards.

Posts like this make you, Mr. Parrot seem rather naive, young or both. Perhaps you did not know that most of the rest of the world eats a lot less meat (protein) then the average US citizen. Many people exist just fine eating fruits, vegetables, starches, legumes (and yes, insects, seafood, meats but in much smaller quantities then we are used to).

You are probably too young to remember an author named Adelle Davis who was somewhat controversial in her time? She proposed that by mixing grains with legumes and vegetables that a normal US male could live just fine on 2 oz. of steak per week - or something like that. You could also substitute the 2 oz. of steak for a bucket of mussels or an oyster po' boy (lot's o' starch in that bread it is wrapped in).

I'm not really sure what your initial post is trying to say because if you want to eat biscuits and gravy for breakfast, with bacon, ham and eggs every day that is your choice and there are plenty of places here that will oblige you. I'd just ask you to take a look around at the waist size of the folks who like to eat as you do. Do you really want to look like them? Your choice of course and I make no judgment.

You did not even mention Vegans who don't eat meat, cheese or dairy and there are some who can't seem to deal with Gluten and a host of other wheat/dairy sensitive folks. Some foods make certain people break out in allergies that can kill them. Sounds funny but it isn't for them.

You sound as if you have never left the lower 48 states of the US or visited Europe or South America. Once you get away from Micky D's and the land O' plenty you might find that people are slimmer and healthier looking and live longer then your biscuit and gravy craving friends. People eat fish (who can) of course but most folks don't down a 1 # hamburger everyday in India, Vietnam, Japan, Italy, Norway....

Eat what you want to. It's your life. But if you are at all interested in how most of the world gets by without a big Mac or Oyster PoBoy everyday then read a book or two on the subject of nutrition instead of mocking it.

Mouth wide open.

Re: Veggie Diet

1. This is just a troll thread
2. It has nothing to do with sailing and belongs off topic
