My approach to militant vegetarians/vegans (only the evangelical ones; some of my friends yadda yadda) is twofold.

First, I joke that if I were to be reincarnated as a foodstuff I would rather be a lamb than a lettuce, because at least I'd not be eaten alive.

Then I get serious and ask what foodstuff would replace the sheep that currently graze on all the areas where only grass will grow? And are they happy that total vegetarianism worldwide would lead to the extinction of all the species and varieties that we currently eat, and therefore whose populations we manage, because they would become competitors?

I have no objection to anyone eating whatever they like, as long as their dietary restrictions aren't imposed on anyone else. I don't eat a lot of meat as it irritates my gut; ditto grains, particularly gluten-containing ones. For red meat, I prefer kangaroo to beef. I think it tastes nicer; plus roos need far less food than cows because they have different intestinal flora which generate acetate (digestible) instead of methane (a major greenhouse gas). They also don't have hooves to destroy the paddocks. So they are environmentally friendly!

When assaulted by vegeterrorists, I just let them believe that if they take away my cows, they're next on the menu. A few surprisingly subtle hints, grins, and expressions peppered into the conversation frighten them back into the "hot dogs are made gross" state of pro-choice/passive vegetarianism, at least around me. Metabolically, some people are better off with light/no meat in their diet, but not all. Anyone who wants to swear off porterhaus steaks to keep the price down is doing me a favor.
In case you didn't realize it, I DO have a sense of humor. How about you?

The girlfriend of a friend is on an "alkylising diet" (she is into every variety of woo). According to her an acid environment in the body is the root of all disease and therefore one should only eat "alkaline" foods (never mind that the body likes the internal pH just so, and had a very good regulatory mechanism to keep it so). Her best one was that she couldn't eat the toffee apples I made for bonfire night because refined sugars are "acid". If I'd left the apple as is, that would have been okay, because according to her, apples aren't acidic... :facewall:

I haven't had a toffee apple in years. :cry:

I think I saw a video on this once. The summary of it was "eat more fruits, veggies, lean proteins and unrefined/unprocessed goods, eat less fat, processed stuff and refined carbs." Which, regardless of the validity of the pH balance argument, is a good eating plan.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

It's a major part of the daftbeaker weight loss plan:
1 - Eat less crap.
2 - Do more exercise :haha:
