I do not drink traditional soda, i stopped like 19 years ago. but the last year or so i allow my self a Zevia with dinner...Soda is the new black sheep in the food world.

A few tables down I assume this guy ordering dessert was vegan, he asked about dairy, honey and then started asking about serving sizes and the cost per serving...People can be so ridiculously cheap.


he asked them how much it cost them to make the dessert per serving? it almost sounds to me like he was trying to find out the serving size and maybe weight watchers points so he could track what he was eating? that might explain it.

This logic actually just made me snicker out loud. People. sheesh.


AHAHAHAA I'm the fattest vegan I've ever met and I never drink soda. I hate carbonated beverages, so I never ever put them in my mouth. I think the last time I even tried to drink soda was like 15 years ago, which was before I went vegan, and I'm pretty sure I spit it out and cried.


im a chubby vegan and i never drink soda. i have a soda maybe twice a year and i can never even finish it

No...

guy: does it contain dairy/eggs?
server: no, we can remove honey to.
guy: how much is it?
server: $4
guy: how many people does it serve?

he was with a wife/date/friend. the way he said it was due to price.

that doesn't sound unreasonable or weird to me. maybe he just wanted to see whether it was enough for them to share? i split desserts with people all the time. if you're getting dessert as a treat and not because you really need more food, there's no reason to order two if neither of you will finish your serving or if you could be satisfied with a few bites.

I can vouch for the perfection that is Veganaise and Sriracha. When paired with tots, we are talking last meal goodness.

Did you hear that soda comment this weekend? Cause that Alec Baldwin npr show yesterday had some nutritionist on talking about sugar and the guy said vegans were obese from sugary soda. I think he was just trying to say there is vegan junk food, but it made me laugh and I could imagine somebody misquoting him.

HOLD THE PHONE. Alec Baldwin NPR show? As in, Alec Baldwin hosts a show on NPR, or was he a guest on a show? Sorry for the derail, I have a weird obsession/crush on Alec Baldwin.

I drink soda once a week at the very most, because I usually get Moe's on Mondays and I can't resist using the fancy future-soda machine to make orange-vanilla Coke. Pretty sure I drink soda less than most omnis I know, though.

When I'm searching for yummy vegan food on Etsy sometimes in the hope that someone somewhere has veganized the delicious treats I'm too lazy to make, sometimes searching turns up those things...in soap. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad it's vegan soap and that the people list it as vegan, but...donut soap and brownie soap and cake pop soap are STILL SOAP and I can't eat them.

Ha! Yes! I have complained about this so much (primarily to people who couldn't care less). But the surge of excitement when I see a bunch of results for, like, "vegan macarons" or something and then... oh. Soap. So disappointing.

I went into the Student Union bar/cafe yesterday, and was amazed to see that they have finally put a vegan symbol on their menus! However, this excitement was short-lived as I quickly realised that the only vegan options were chunky chips and curly fries. Even the bruschetta isn't vegan because they put butter in it. I guess it's a good first step to actually label vegan, but it would be nice if they combined that with actually putting some vegan meals on the menu.

not sure if this is the correct place for this ... I am getting tired of people asking me if I am not worried about my bones now since I do not use/consume dairy products ... I told her that one can get all the calcium one needs from non-dairy sources and I would be happy to send her some urls of youtube talks given by proper medical people ... she looked disbelieving shaking her head in a 'so sorry for you way' ... she also seemed to think that since I have now gone through 'the change' they are about to snap like burned matchsticks ...

The thinking on calcium in vegan diets has changed a bit recently, teacup and karichelle. You can definitely get all the calcium (and other bone-health stuff) you need on a vegan diet, but you should make sure you're using current information.

So I have a bowl from home in work because I have issues with communal stuff and the fact that people don't wash things after them most of the time. Today I found my co-worker using my bowl. She had yogurt. I'm mentally traumatised. I meant to take it home with me to give it a really good wash but I totally forgot.

Daisy, that happened to me all the time in college. I once founded my pot full of Mac and cheese in the communal fridge. Not only are you using my stuff, but you are using it to store your gross food in. Messed up. I threw out their food.

What, like you threw out someone's lunch? Or had it been sitting there for a while?

Ugh, two of my roommates would use my soup pot to store stuff in. I didn't care that they were using it(well, when they stopped thinking they had to wash it after wards I did...) but it was so forking annoying to go to cook something I needed that pot for and find it full of spaghetti or something else random that we had Tupperware for. And then when I asked them to stop doing it and wash it when they're done, they got mad at me. Uh, sorry for not wanting to clean up after you?

not a serious or major peeve, but my father-in-law was hilariously uncertain about using almond milk in mashed potatoes. it took myself, my partner, and my sister-in-law a good ten minutes to convince him it would work.

Teehee, i think it's funny when people are worried about the tiny bit of vegan-alternative in a dish. Funny and sad, but mostly funny.
