Oh, I remembered another gem from my lunch. My friends were trying to figure out the difference between a lamb chop and a rack of lamb (ugh).

Friend A: Rack of lamb is the one with the things sticking up?
Me: Yeah, it looks like a rib cage.
Friend B: Boooo! (Makes squeamish face)
Friend A: Ewww! That's such a gross visual!

It's so weird to me sometimes how people are SO grossed out by meat and still eat it. I was honestly not trying to be an asparagus, either. To me, that's just a factual description. It looks like what it is, which is a rib cage!

so as discussed earlier the paleo thing is basically just a reason to eat a lot of meat :-(


Well your post inspired me to make some okara meatloaf, especially since I had made a double batch of soy milk.

i agree! you were just saying what it looked like to help them tell the difference!
if they're gonna eat it they shouldnt be grossed out.

i will say one of my coworkers who picks on me the most about being a hippie actually is totally like unsqueamish about any meat and we were talking about the whole horse meat controversy and a couple people were like "oh that's so gross people were eating horse!" and i was like "what's the difference between horse and cow?" and he was like "i agree ill eat them all, gimme some horse meat ill eat that shiitake"

hahahahaa so wrong but at the same time i give him credit for that.

being a life long northerner i can probably count the # of times ive had okra on one hand (if ive ever had it?) and i figured there was some magical property about it that you could make meatloaf with it!

I thought pop tarts without frosting are vegan? I don't buy them or eat them but that's what I'd read.

What's the point of a pop tart without frosting?

Yeah, if the frosted brown sugar cinnamon poptarts were gelatin-free, I'd be in trouble. Haven't had one since 1986. Now that's tragic.

Those are addictive! Back in the day, I was capable of eating an entire box of those in one day, and I had to wean myself off of them when I realized they were a culprit in my unwanted weight gain. So, I am a little relieved that I can't ever have them again.

I just happened to be looking at the Vegan Essentials new products and saw that Eco Planet now has frosted vegan pop-tart type things:

http://store.veganessentials.com/eco-pl ... p3924.aspx

Of course, they're also gluten-free.

I don't care for these myself but I thought of this thread immediately.

ETA: ouch, the reviews are terrible though

Imogen, that sucks! Were they friends? Did you say that you needed to be able to eat as well? I couldn't have managed to sit down while starving and watch others eat around me. I would have left and gotten food elsewhere, but perhaps that wasn't possible (like a business lunch). I try and keep a power bar in my bag for times like that, but then end up eating my "emergency ration" when I want a candy bar. I fail at vegan planning.


I normally carry some emergency food with me at all times, but I hadn't anticipated this and forgot to bring something with me. They are friends and I'm sure it was just a thoughtless moment (one did apologise later), but it made me feel a little sad and hurt that they didn't think about it. I said that I would like to go and eat somewhere else, but they were "just so hungry they couldn't wait" even though we were all on the same schedule and had had the same amount of breakfast at the same time this morning. I couldn't go off on my own as we were on a really tight schedule.

I think I saw that, got excited, then read the reviews. Really it's better for me in the long run. I put Pop-Tarts in the category of food that led to my weight gain (TexTroosers, twins!).

Pfff! Stop trying to make new products, Eco Planet, and dedicate all your efforts to brining your cheddar crackers back into production.
