What's for dinner?

I seem to run into a lot who claim all elves are vegetarian, but I really don't think whatever my kind is are. I'm almost certain we ate fish, birds, small game, that sort of stuff, though I don't think there was extensive farming of large red meat type animals. That could be a regional thing among a certain species, too. Not sure about milk or eggs, either. Of course, I could just be a deviant fish eater among a tribe of vegetarians.

Stats from the old forum:

3 users reporting probable hunting and/or fishing and consumption of animal products, but likely lack of large animal farming, no vegans checking in yet.

Re: What's for dinner?
I suppose I might be the first to chime in as vegan, both in this life and as an Elf.

We ate no animal by-products at all, not because we thought it was wrong or unnatural - but because we simply couldn't digest the proteins correctly (fun w/ allergies). Though we technicaly could eat small amounts of honey (and I do to this day), most of us hate the taste (as I did growing up), and never use it. The only thing I really ever use honey in, if I use it at all, is stir fry.

But yeah - we did farm, and we ate a lot of grains, veggies, berries, fruit and nuts. To this day - I still have a fixation with these foods - more so as I've gone through my awakening. Though I only found out this is what I would have eaten after I found my lovely obsession with them rekindled, oh well - LoL - can't hurt to have your own body tell you how to eat healty.

I tried being lacto-ovo vegetarian in this life for my own personal life views (after growing up an omnivore) - but for various reasons that didn't last but a few years.... >_> go figure.
Now I'm just vegan, and honestly much happier for it, but that's just me - LoL.

There's nothing the universe can do to tell you you were born to be vegan quite like when that ill feeling in your stomach only means you're craving veggie broth and a huge salad.

Not a vegetarian or a carnivore. I'll eat anything as long as it tastes decent and isn't poisonous and/or filled with so many additives and chemicals that there's really no actual substance to it at all.

Food that's not 75%+ additives and synthetic chemicals? Nonsense, pure fantasy. Where would one acquire such ambrosia? [/sarcasm]
Honestly though, I think it's really funny the circle this type of industry has wrought.
They went "OMG! Lard and fat and sugar as stuff is bad! We need alternatives..."
So, they thought up partially hydrogenated oils to replace lard and butter, they made a billion syrups to replace sugar, etc etc.
They thought they did a good thing, now we're finding out that stuff is about 2x as bad as the stuff they were trying to replace.
The REALLY sad part is a lot of the replacements are not only worse for you than the thing they replaced, most of them don't 'fill' you like the originals, either, so you end up eating more of them, too. So, in practice they're even worse than we think!

Too bad it's so hard/expensive to find 'real' food anymore. <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad -->
It, for me at least, often comes down to figuring out which item is this lesser of two evils:
"Hmmm, which of these foods has LESS of the harmful additives that are slowly killing me?" <!-- s:x --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mad.gif" alt=":x" title="Mad" /><!-- s:x -->

Re: What's for dinner?
Yeah, alot of times since I'm short on cash at the moment it's the matter of deciding on the lesser of two evils. But as far as synthetic stuff goes, take Parkay (or any similar product). Parkay is supposedly only one or two molecules away in structure from plastic. Might as well just melt and eat the tub it comes in too at that rate.

OMG, you just stated the same thing that Xanthus says ALL the time. <!-- s:o --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_surprised.gif" alt=":o" title="Surprised" /><!-- s:o -->

As far as food, we eat fairly well. I do the grocery shopping and am a huge label reader. If Whole Foods was a bit closer and was priced better, I can easily see us being Vegetarians.

There is nothing more uncommon than common sense. Frank Lloyd Wright

Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet. Albert Einstein

I can't. I need to eat something that bleeds every now and then.

Re: What's for dinner?
Heehee, my fiancee enlightened me to the wonder that is parkay. With that knowledge I don't think I could even go near the stuff (and from memory the stuff tastes vile anyway)
