Was wondering if there were any vegans here on UG. I've been vegan since the New Year and any tips, advice or cool recipes would be most appreciated!
#3
Chances are you'll develop a Vitamin B12 deficiency. Good luck finding vegan foods that contain it.
#4
Well there's Firebread in the drug thread. He also straightens his hair at 11pm every night and wears girl clothes.


Coincidence?


(I love you Fire.)

Fassa, you might want to consider taking a B12 supplement for starters. Then I don't know... a dried leaf?

Which is probably how roughly 95% of the world feels about you (give or take 4-ish%).

So, on a completely different subject, how did you end up going green in the new decade, Fassa?

Yeah: stop being a vegan.

What's gonna be really fun is when you develop permanent nerve damage due to B12 deficiency, become anemic and have no energy to do anything, or get really fat because it turns out that leafy stuff is gross and you eat bread all the time.

Oh PS you're not saving animals; growing and harvesting crops kills animals, and using their environment to grow food for us starves them.
#16
I like steak, and eggs.

But you can try having a nice salad, with tomatoes and stuff. I'd suggest pizza but that has cheese on it.

To the people who mention it:

- Vegetables have comparable amounts of protein in them as meat (and without all the fat). Where do you think animals get their protein from? That's one of the biggest vegan myths.

- You can get vitamin B12 from soy milk (half of your daily intake in one serving, actually).

But soy milk tastes like shit.

And why have you gone vegan, Fassa? I'm genuinely interested

Slaughtered animal is delicious.


I can't understand why Vegans hate cattle so much that they want them to go extinct. It's despicable.

On a serious note though, you should probably ask your doctor if it's a good idea. You had cushings, yeah? If I recall correctly people with cushings syndrome need a different diet. Some things a vegan diet cannot provide, perhaps. It's a good idea to go to a doctor, anyways.

F*ck all has happened.


What did you think would happen?

1) No. You have a better protein absorption rate from meat. And you need fat.

Also other animals have different types of stomach processing than humans.

2) Soy milk sucks. Everyone hates it. Even soy milk hates soy milk. And it's fricking expensive compared to normal milk. **** I hate soy milk.

What the ****? O_o
Considering that what a vegan does affects you in no way whatsoever, don't you think that's a little excessive? Or are you just naturally a ****?

Screw you man

There's lactose free milk that tastes just like regular milk, though. But it's about 2-3 times more expensive than normal milk.

And that makes you a man how? Have you ever been out and killed something to put on the table? Or do you, like all of the people who post comments like this, leave the dirty work to someone else and then happily eat the animal with no qualms because you had no attachment to it whatsoever before it died?

I'm not a vegetarian, or a vegan, but this viewpoint and all of the vegetarian hating opinions are fairly full of shit. It's their choice, what does it matter to you?
