I made chocolates for a cat rescue today to sell to raise money. Medium chocolate base with toasted pecans & raisins. They brought them out and I overheard someone say 'chocolate - vegan?...hmmm'. i struck up a convo and told her most dark chocolate is vegan...she went on to talk about cocoa butter...um, vegan.

I bought these once and had to leave the house while my husband finished them up, the entire house smelled fishy!!

Clicked on an article called 7 Foods a Nutritionist Would Never Eat and read:

Quote:
Seitan, originally from Asia, is a common meat substitute for vegetarian dishes. Unlike many meat substitutes, seitan is not soy derived but made entirely of wheat gluten. Wheat gluten is a highly allergenic protein that is naturally found only in small amounts in wheat-based products. While there is no research linking seitan intake to increased prevalence of gluten allergies or intolerances, I’m wary that eating a lot of this allergenic protein may trigger development of a more severe gluten allergy or intolerance.

I saw that article too. Dude's not an MD, but a PhD and "nutritional consultant". Kinda playing it fast and loose with the whole "Dr." thing in his title.

ETA: Not that I think having a PhD doesn't entitle you to use the title! But in this context he's misleading people into thinking he's got medical qualifications.

I heard that this happened after they moved to their current factory. I didn't buy new ones after my last pair died.

I will not buy any more & wear the ones I have, including my leopard print ones from 8 years ago.

This Converse revelation makes me sad. I was looking to finally replace my black pair; they are so old they were actually made in the USA. Guess I'll hold onto them... wah.

Yeah, it sucks. I'd go through a pair in a couple years, replace them, repeat. It was pretty painful throwing away my last tattered pair.

I just threw away my three year old ethletics because even the soles started to disintegrate and I was essentially walking around barefoot. So sad! I hate how clean, shiny, new sneakers look!

I bought Daphne Oz's lifestyle book Relish (I am on a lifestyle book kick) and there is a vegan salad dressing recipe that calls for Worcestershire sauce - it is optional, but still that defeats a vegan recipe!

You can buy worsheshire sauce that's vegan :) The Kroger brand is, and there are also probably health food brands that sell ones marked vegan. Though, the recipe probably should have mentioned to check the ingrediants of the worsheshire sauce, since a lot of brands aren't.

Yeah, the Annie's worcestershire sauce is vegan, and so is the Wizard's kind. (I like the Wizard's one because it has a cool picture of a wizard on the label.)

My partner is a junk-food junkie. Usually not a problem for me, but this time I really want what I (choose not to) have. He keeps telling me how much I would like them. He is not trying to be mean but it is irritating because I know I would like them and I do want them.

Apparently they are really REALLY REALLY good. According to everyone everywhere.

Yup, I know. I think the recipe should say buy a vegan fish free brand!

Totally didn't know that. Now I don't have to make a special trip to Whole Foods when I run out. Thx!

I didn't know that either -- I paid $6 for a bottle of Annie's that I threw out half of when I went gluten free.

Chicki, I feel the same about sour cream and cheddar chips, but the thing is, I bet these things would be SO GROSS to us now.

It's so bizarre how my mom's digiorno pizzas that she gets every so often are the worst smell to me now. I'm talking worse than my dad's fried spam or hotdogs or bacon. Even 6 months ago, I still thought pizza smelled good.

The other teacher at school got the cheap dominos lunch special for her class before spring break and I had to hold me breath in the room. I wanted to do it for my class, but couldn't imagine being in a room with that for 90 minutes, so I baked them cookies instead.

"Paleo" diet. Ugh, you people are not eating what the paleolithic people ate.

I belong to another forum and tonight someone asked if others wanted to join her in a two week meat free challenge and asked for recipes. So I encouraged her and shared my pinterest board with her. Our family made the switch on January 7th and it was part of a 30 day challenge. We haven't looked back. Anyways, what pissed me off was someone came along to warn her because once upon a time she was vegetarian and apparently it made her 'very sick' because of iron deficiency. And then she threw in the fact that she would never make her kids eat a meat free diet because of all the 'unknowns' and that a vegetarian/vegan diet is dangerous Grrr! Thanks for the fear mongering because you failed. It pissed me off. I have two kids and they probably eat a healthier diet then the average kid. Eating meat and dairy doesn't mean your diet is healthy or balanced automatically. I just hate the fear mongering and really I'm sure it won't kill her to go meat free for two flipping weeks.

Funny how these people know better than both the American Dietetic Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics, yet are not highly respected publishers of peer-reviewed science... Curious.

That looks like floor sweepings off the snack food factory.

But I would totally eat noochy salsa ting mix.
