    Hey MK, that book looks awesome, I'm going to check it out! The problem with veggie food sometimes is it's so bland.
    Larali I guarantee you that Caribbean veggie food is not bland....American vegetarian food usually is though. Also Indian vegetarian food has much taste. Here in Miami, I always get vegetarian dishes with great taste from Jamaican, Trinidadian, and Guyanese spots.

    Ah, I see man. You do realize however that our human ancestors ate trillions of dead animal bodies to sustain themselves throughout history, correct? It's a part of our human nature and believe me if you were starving your instincts would override your societal brainwashing which causes you to forsake your true human nature

    societal brainwashing? Which society perpetuates Vegetarianism and Veganism? Well if I was an Inuit up in Alaska I'd probably had to eat flesh to survive but it's not preferable. Good thing, I'm from a lush land with much vegetation that produces all sorts of fruits and veggies. I get myself a dish of plantain, rice, lentils, and potato with a drink of fresh Passion fruit, and I'm good to go! That's a full meal. You can't say I'm not getting my protein because I'm getting it through legumes. What's the other purpose of eating flesh besides protein?

    You don't eat flesh due to your unfounded superstitions, societal brainwashing has clearly effected you greatly. Eating meat and enjoying the taste is something very human and very natural while intentionally refusing to eat meat for dietary purposes and such is quite understandable as well yet in your case I believe the reasons for your superstitious beliefs and disgust of meat are brainwashing and tampering by the media and other outlets. They succeeded in dehumanizing you.

    What media? I come from meat eating cultures... What are you talking about? Try eating meat without seasoning! See how tasty that is. What makes food taste good, is the seasoning, not the meat. Rastafari is not in the media and are even a "minority" in Jamaica so my source for Vegetarianism is not no media. It's the Rastafari elders who say MORE LIFE, we nah deal with dem dead ting yeah! There are Indians who have been vegetarians for centuries and see how healthy they are. And it has been proven scientifically that us vegetarians live longer.

    If anything, I DID NOT let my meat eating family and meat eating society brainwash me. Shoot I grew up with parents who would feed me things like MONDONGO, tripe...I've ate enough flesh for a life time.

    It was for me a gradual process. I first stopped eating mammals, then birds and finally fish too. So for 6 months I am a full time veggie and I ain't never going back

    Same here...Black ppl are heavily dependent on chicken and fish so that was the hardest to let go of.

    Here's my meat "race ladder" ordered from most preferable to least preferable:

    1. Everything not listed below
    2. Dogs and cats
    3. Vermin like urban rats or pigeons, i.e. anything that lives in human filth
    4. Humans

    I eat a lot of #1, none of 2 through 4.

    No that part is true, especially the dog part, but not for Japanese. Koreans raise a special breed of dog called "meat dog" specifically for eating. Filipinos (some of them anyway) also consider dog to be a delicacy. My grandma looked down on them and called them "dog eaters".
