Kind of amusing but a vegan cookbook author posted something on FB about vegans policing other vegans in terms of eating "healthy". Someone posted a response that they could never give up meat.

PS Omniperson... it isn't always about you.

A co-worker asked me this morning what milk I use because she saw a documentary and wants to drink less milk! Yea! (But I could never give up cheese; I love cheese...)

Me: <sigh>

I tried out some fancy pants cafe this morning that my coworkers have been talking up (it's called La Boulange...guess it's a chain?). Nothing vegan there, including the oatmeal! The cashier was like, "well, I *guess* we can make oatmeal with water. It won't be very good though." Huh? You mean unlike every other restaurant in the country you can't figure out how to make oatmeal with water? When it came out it was literally rolled oats in a bowl swimming in boiling water. Oh, and some sliced bananas and strawberries that basically got cooked in the boiling water. It was $6 oatmeal soup and yes, it tasted terrible.

Dude, cooking oatmeal in water is way easier than milk because you don't have to worry about the liquid scorching before it simmers. That's just bizarre.

I wonder if that's somehow related to the Starbucks thing; I bet it is. The Starbucks near me just rolled out 'La Boulange' pastries and whatnot. Nothing vegan. I think/hope they have the regular oatmeal though. That stuff sounds nasty, couroupita! Sorry for your breakfast!

La Boulange is a chain in the Bay Area, and they suck. Sorry, couropita, that you had crappy oatmeal!

It may one day be a national chain that sucks!

Yeah, I love that. I was recently part of a pretty high level, theoretical discussion about the ethical and rhetorical implications of concepts like "humanely raised/slaughetered" meat, into which some genius injected the endlessly fascinating fact that he apparently "could never give up bacon." Well, all righty then - that puts an end to this entire line of philosophical enquiry!

I don't have any vegan or vegetairan friends really, nor do I belong to any FB groups or anything, but I finally have something to peeve about.

A friend of my partners, a fellow musician, if a friend of mine on facebook. He is mostly vegetarian I think. Anyway, he posted that he found a frozen pack of Soyrizo in his freezer, that was expired in March, but had frozen it before that. He was asking if it was ok to eat.

Some dude was like "Don't eat that or you will grow boobs!". That got a lot of likes and additional comments. I had to refrain from commenting about it. Neither time nor place...especially since my partner has a business relationship with him (sort of). I just replied if he didn't want the soyrizo, I would take it!

wasn't a big deal or anything, but that Soy = Men turning into Women thing is really annoying. Probably the MOST annoying topic associated with being vegan. It took me a while to convince my fiance that soy was not going to turn his penis into a vagina. I think he still worries about it. I see him checking his private place after eating a big serving of Tempeh.

If only it were that easy, right? We could just make periodic dietary changes and be switching back and forth whenever we pleased!

Why do I read the negative cookbook reviews? gdit.

Quote:
I have this book and enjoy the lovely photos, but there aren't many recipes I can use. Most of Chloe's recipes are delicious because they contain ingredients like coconut milk and Earth Balance. Other cookbook authors use better alternatives in their recipes - foods which are more plant-based and healthier. The book was a disappointment.

What I learned from that negative cookbook review:

Coconut milk is bad because
1) it's made of coconuts, which are plants, but it's not plant-based enough, and
2) it's delicious

That reminds me, I was looking at my wishlist today because i was thinking about picking up a book and saw that the Ms. Cupcake book has one review and it's one star:

http://www.amazon.com/review/R2LRGCMMKM ... hisHelpful

What a crasshole. If you have the book (and like it), please leave it a nice review so we can bump that rating up!

Because who wants to cook and eat stuff that's delicious, right??

That's certainly not what I signed up for.

Did she read the description?? I left a comment on the review and said it was unhelpful but honestly, it's description of unhealthy baked goods made me want to buy it. So I guess it was helpful, just not in the way the author intended.

I hate when vegan cookbooks are given bad reviews because they aren't 100% healthy/whole foods/no oil/etc
There's nothing on Chloe's cookbook claiming its a health food cookbook.

Also I wonder what "more plant based" means?
Coconuts aren't plant enough?

I don't know, but I think it's suspicious... Is it cream? Is it water? Is it a cleverly disguised nut in coco form? How do we know these nuts aren't smuggling other white things over the border with them?? Not in my back yard! Live free or die, plants!!

I think she is confused by the hair on the coconut. Really, they do look a bit like outsized gonads.
