hah—sometimes it feels like it'd be less unpopular to say you're a BTC cannibal than a BTC vegetarian
I see his point, but I can't help it! I hate meat and I love the legume and grain diet! I guess I'm a peasant...But I'm a Maximalist peasant - the most wealthy, the most free peasant in the history of the world.
@mberger I think that people need to honor themselves and practice self-care. It was interesting to watch my son who has been an elite athlete for 10 years + live as a vegetarian after cycling across the country and witnessing the way cows in particular were treated and the grain silos. He told me then about what he thought was the best presentation at MIT for Science Week and that was Impossible Foods. Seems like a good step for people who want to transition.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE vegetables and herbs🥑 🍆 🥒 🌶️ Having grown them for much of the last decade, I can attest to there being nothing like it. And that is just the thing for me: store-bought veggies, even at WF now are gross. My family grows 3% of CA's avocados. NOBODY wants to pay what it would cost for local, sustainable farmed foods. We'll pay $5 a gallon for gas that will take us 30 miles but not $5 for a avocado that will sustain us for a half day.
