I have to say, reading Skinny bisque helped me on my road to veganism. I mean, at that point, I could have read any literature on how the dairy industry was so so cruel, but that's the one I read and the tone was good for me at the time. Yes, I did other research after reading it (to make sure!), but that was my initial push from vegetarianism to veganism.

God, I hated that book! I felt it portrayed vegans as shrill, braying rainbow-smugglers who secretly crave meat and cheese but are making some sort of sacrifice for their health and for the world. I couldn't even make it through the introduction of Skinny mustard.

It's not a sacrifice; it's a triumphant ninja high-kick with helicopters, explosions and a disco ball.

I think sometimes we come to veganism from weird places that don't always work for everyone. Honestly the reason I made the switch from vegetarian to vegan was mostly PETA, which is really not a group I'd endorse anymore. But I stuck with it because once I was vegan I really believed in what I was doing, even if I was distancing myself from the organization that had kind of gotten me into it.

that surprises me as much as the "legumes are bad" point that came from somewhere (one of the ex-vegan blogs??)

Oh dear god, I just saw a commercial rhapsodizing about how all animals deserve humane treatment, blah blah blah, charming images of cows and stuff. It was a forking Foster Farms chicken commercial. Apparently they are "American Humane Certified." Which obviously means absolutely nothing if you can murder hundreds of thousands of birds and still be called humane. WTFIWWP?

Paleo people do believe beans cause disease.

Exactly. There is no way I could go back and read that book now, but it was what worked for me then. I remember looking through the cookbook though, and being like...what the fork? I had already been cooking vegan food for 2 years for my vegan boyfriend, so I had a decent knowledge of the food and every recipe was fake this and fake that, and I kind of rolled my eyes, did some more research (the chapter that got me was the animal cruelty chapter, I don't even remember the rest of it), and made the switch that evening!

I can't even tell you how often we talk about this at dinner. I just don't understand. To be fair, I haven't looked into it, because it sounds so ridiculous, but my best friend is doing this sort of Paleo/GI/way not enough calorie diet (that she tells me is still vegan, but she lives in Alaska, so I can't really know), and I end up ranting about it with my husband whenever I talk to her.

I went to a vegan meet up yesterday and it was full of very new vegans. All they talked about was protein and how they worry they aren't getting enough of it. I had a headache by the end of it and couldn't wait to get together with the well seasoned vegans so we could head off shopping.

It's when beans get into the house that you have a problem, they leave droppings everywhere. Sadly with the rise in paleo diets they have fewer natural predators and so their population can get out of control. Some companies will hire you a vegan, but to keep them under control you are advised to get your own.

They use eggs and probably coconut flour or almond flour because you know paleo man definitely had that.

At the grocery store yesterday, we saw paleo BBQ sauce.

one of the recipes i looked at used mashed plantains and baking soda. it had oil and spices too but i was confused how it turned into a pancake because hte picture looked like a pancake. there was no flour

then some other recipes i saw used almond and coconut flour and it was also heavy on coconut oil.

so if you didnt live in a tropical area you would die. htere was a lot of plantains and coconut products.

i get shiitake for being vegan all the time so even though it's probably immature i dont feel bad throwing it all back at something else.
hahahahah

Brian's sister has discovered paleo, which I knew. But she was worried about our dinner choice because she's 'not eating grains', but there was a wait at the restaurant so we went over to Starbucks where she got a trenta iced coffee and a brownie, and then after dinner we went to Cold Stone. So yeah.

erm.....brownie's are paleo?
i cant get behind any diet that says any sort of fruit or vegetable is bad for you (i know paleo doesnt like some particlar veggies just not sure which) or whole grains. UNLESS it's some sort of allergen based diet (ie gluten free if you have celiac or a gluten intolerance)

pretty sure cavemen didnt have coffee!

My omni husband decided last week to "go paleo." He even agrees that the "science" behind it is non-existent but has seen lots of friends drop weight fast with it. I am actually kind of enjoying him being on the diet because now at least we can share a side dish of veggies at dinner. And yes, the paleo pancakes that were made involved almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour, eggs, almond milk, banana and baking powder maybe? something so easy to put together all the bachelor cavemen were doing it. Seriously though. I am annoyed that I have been watching what I eat AND exercising for a month and have lost 7 lbs whereas he has been stuffing his maw with "pancakes" gobs of bacon and the like and has dropped 5 lbs in one week.
