Urban Curry in Spanish Springs was very nice, but short-lived as the demand for it was low. It tried changing to Urban Grill - offering more non-Indian dishes - but that just delayed the inevitable closing :-(

Fresh Market on 466 has a good selection of herbs, spices and whole foods.

Short of that, more vegan (dairy free vegetarian choices) on every restaurant's menu would be helpful. I was excited to go to Orange Blossom yesterday because I heard they had a page of vegetarian choices on their menu, but unfortunately 95% of it was not vegan. In a community this large, surely we could accommodate more vegan options?
You realize of course that if enough people were buying those sorts of things that businesses would sell them. Just because a small group want them or those people think they are more healthy and they think it is good for the planet do things just "happen." You have to have numbers of people to want them and would financially support them.

I have never been one for fad diets especially when you are aware that 8 new ones appear every year but there is one diet that cause m to pause. A young girl, Brook, in my office often stopped me to explain the latest diet she was testing. On this day she caught my attention because for three weeks she would eat nothing but wine, cheese and bread Now that excites me....well until dinner when steak with mushrooms sautee in a butter wine sauce is served up with a side dish of pasta a glass of wine and oh yes a salad to fill my veggie requirement....a salad that is eaten last the European way

Bon appetit

Sorry Jim, you are a good dude but there aren't enough statistics in the world, to convince me, to become a a vegan

I try to eat as little meat as possible but I can't give it up totally.

As of last year there were reported 16 million vegetarians in the US, half of those vegan.

So it's not everyone.

But the numbers are growing,
the point of my threads on this lifestyle (notice I didn't say diet) is simply to create awareness of options in food for your health.

And you thought a good way to start the dialogue was to try and put meat eaters on a guilt trip by reminding us how many animals we butcher? This thread has made me determined to become a more militant carnivore. As a matter of fact, I am joining PETA

Giving meat up altogether is a hard sell when many of the benefits can be gained by cutting back on portion sizes, having no meat some days and replacing meat with fish.


The number of "killings" cited by Jimbo may well be an underestimate:

"The average meat eating person eats 7,000 animals in their life time or 70 billion a year are killed for food"

If the average meat-eater lives for 70 years, then 7,000 animals in a lifetime is 100 per year. Multiply that by the number of humans - 7 billion - and up to 700 billion animals per year would be killed. Even allowing for not everyone being a meat-eater, you would have to kill, say, 500 billion per year.

Of course, there's a big difference between killing a sardine and slaughtering a cow...

Most of us would never dream of trying to change anyone's diet. What people eat is their choice entirely.

I don't know why some folks are so militant about food choices..

Eat what you like. Live long and prosper. I have my own views as to what is healthy.

What meat is the most consumed in the world? Goat meat and that has not even been mentioned in this thread.

Seniors biggest challenge is ensuring they are geting proper nutrition (period)
In U.S., 5% Consider Themselves Vegetarians

According to the above link, 5% of the population are vegetarians and only 2% are vegans. So why do people always feel so threatened by someone promoting vegetarianism or veganism? How bad can it be if the Seventh-day Adventists, on average, live ten years longer than the rest of the U.S. population?
