I can't imagine anyone's having an issue with a vegan on a food forum. On the other hand, people who say, "Y'all" could be in trouble!

Welcome to DC.

Welcome to DC.
Being from New York, I didnt think people actually said "Y'all" . I thought it was just one of those stereo typed movie things, until I took a trip to Atlanta. As I was leaving the hotel, the person from behind the desk said " Have a nice day. Y'all". Totally ,made my day. Big culture shock for me. I gotta get out more from under my rock!!

From what I've seen, Sumokitchen, Vyapti is quite the cook.

For whatever its worth, ive tried several of Vyapti's recipes with great success. Actually, i made the chickpea salad today ( which ive made in the past). I had it on crackers, my wife on a sandwich. If your vegan ( or not) I strongly recommend visiting his site and trying out a few recipes.

I think by avoiding eating animal meat you cut off the most valuable branched chain amino acids. You can obviously eat food supplements but I don't think it will replace the natural meat. Regards.

Thanks for your opinion. There aren't any essential amino acids in meat that can't be obtained elsewhere or produced by our own bodies. Additionally, animal products contain cholesterol and saturated fats, which are absent in many plant foods. The only vitamin I've found it necessary to supplement is B12.
In regards to these boards, I am here mostly to share some recipes that go along with my lifestyle and learn from others' cooking experiences. I neither wish to debate my lifestyle, nor convince anyone here that my lifestyle is the one they should live.

Also I have read that carnivorous animals have 10-20 times the acids required to digest animal protein in their stomachs. An interesting thing to consider. That is not to say that I don't eat meat, I just try to eat less of it.

Welcome to the forum. Actually I love vegans, the less meat somebody else eat, the more of it is left for me.
True, dat! More for me! Seriously, though- everyone is welcome here. I look forward to sampling some of your vegan recipes.

I do not think it is any of our business what people who join the forum eat. we are not into medical advises here, we're here to share recipes and cooking tips.
