Justifying eating meat by saying slaughterhouses will never end, on a vegan page and at the same time calling yourself an animal lover.

A good post at a site I like about orcas and the upcoming documentary about SeaWorld, etc.

Fine, good.

But we must not talk about the ethics of meat-eating!

After weeks of helping a friend who said he wanted a rescue pet, he decided to go with a puppy from a breeder. He hasn't ever met the pup, but he fell in love with the photo and is driving 10 hours to go pick him up. Seriously, when I found him cute rescue pups everything was too far, and too much hassle etc. Ugh. People suck sometimes.

The impossibility of finding a good vegan cornbread dressing easily available to me without having to make it from scratch. I've been craving Thanksgiving, even Stovetop Stuffing, for days. I realize this is also a first world problem.

Could you give some support to a group planning to protest? It sucks that you can't be there, but you could help them get the message across.

Can you find Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix? It's a little harder to find mixes this time of year, but I believe all of this brand is vegan.

There may be hope for the fish-oil-in-everything craze to start fading away now that the big study linking fish oil/omegas from marine sources to prostate cancer has been released. Of course, soy-is-the-devil will still get the most publicity. Soy needs to fire its publicist, stat.

Ginny Messina posted a link on FB to The Laziest Vegans in the World review of So Delicious Cashew Milk, asking if anyone had tried it, and the first response out of the gate (and a number of responses after that) was "EEK! CARRAGEENAN!!"

I would love it if she were to do a post debunking the whole carrageenan scare.


On this note, it drives me nuts when a company or blogger posts something about a new product and everyone is like, "But is it non-GMO?" or "OMG GMOS!" If you're not interested in the product, move on. And all of these people freaking out on Facebook about GMOs better not eat at chain restaurants or any non-organic processed foods with corn or soy in them. Somehow though I bet it's like the locavores who grab the occasional burger at McD's.


Whenever I check the Almond Breeze page to see if they have any new coupons, their wall is covered with posts about how people aren't buying their stuff until they take out the carrageenan. Okay. Suggest a replacement? Because they add it for a reason and you would notice a difference if they just took it out.

I have a friend who was vegetarian for a while, because she "loved animals and didn't want them to be killed". And then one day at a barbecue, she said the hamburgers "smelled too delicious" for her to abstain, and it's like she decided to eat as much meat as possible from then on. And now she posts on fb about things like roasting pig carcasses, which I totally do not need to see on my newsfeed.

This isn't really a peeve...it goes beyond that....like it super upsets me....but I'm posting it here anyway.

When people throw away animal products because they're too full/it's too salty/too spicy/can't be bothered to wrap it up for later/etc, etc, etc.

I mean, not only did that animal live a horrid life, then die for their lunch, but then get tossed in the trash without a thought.

News story about couple who fed their cat a vegan diet which almost killed him/her. Cue flurry of 'omg vegans are so stoopid' articles :(

Desperately trying to find vegan bread at my corner grocery store, I found a promising looking one, but it said it had omega-3s, and sure enough...FISH! In bread! Barf. Luckily I found another, vegan, one for my tofuna salad sandwiches.


Eww. Gross. Why on earth would someone put FISH, in any form, in bread? Bread can be baked with such nominal, basic ingredients. I don't get the eggs and fish in bread.

Glad you found a vegan one though.


Ugh. This is the worst. Once i was buying peanut butter for my pie to enter in the county fair, and i almost bought the omega-3 kind before realizing it had anchovies. This has also happened with carrot juice. Now i know to check whenever it says "Omega-3" on the package.

I would instead donate money to something like an elephant rescue or Vegan Outreach instead. Unless you can afford to lose your job, it would not be worth the risk.

Whole Foods has a vegan stuffing mix, too. I liked it quite a bit, and I saw it at my whole foods the other day randomly.

Kroger here has Pepperidge Farm stuffing mixes year round, but...this is WV, and we do need year round stuffing.

That's a really good point. The other day I saw someone on a vegan Facebook page say they were proud they had talked someone in the grocery line into leaving their pack of hotdogs and it would probably get thrown out because it had been out of the fridge. That didn't sit right with me.

even if there aren't any options at all, nobody is going to waste away by waiting a couple of hours to eat after the party.

I think posting on someone's wall a confessional is pretty shitty but I think there are a lot of reasons people are tied to meat. I can't ever imagine eating again but a lot of people 'try' vegetarianism or veganism. Some may become vegetarian or vegan later with initial failed attempts for various reasons. I figure that if you want to eat meat, eat meat. Don't tell someone who has probably encouraged you on not eating meat and possibly given you resources and recipes that you can't do it.

I would be surprised if they didn't just put it back in the refrigerator.
