>>7045931 I never understood veggie burgers. Beans, mushrooms, tofu and beets can all be delicious. But I don't get what's to be gained by turning them into a fake hamburger. And I'm saying this as someone who eats veggie most of the time. In a world where falafel exists I can't imagine the thought process that leads to: "I could really go for a burger that's not made of meat."
>>7046084 >>7046084 >it was invented by Nobel laureate Luis Federico Leloir in the mid-1920s at a Golf Club at the seaside resort Mar del Plata. Tired of eating shrimp and prawn with mayonnaise, he asked the waiter to bring various ingredients (vinegar, lemon, mustard, ketchup, and others) and experimented with different mixtures. The best-liked was ketchup and mayonnaise. Leloir's companions named the result salsa golf and its fame grew. >Nobel laureate >ketchup and mayonnaise
Argentina is so fucking stupid that it took your smartest man and a series of experiments in order to invent fry sauce. Bravo Argentina.
>>7046111 I guess. Maybe I'm missing something fundamental, but I almost never crave a burger, and on the very rare occasions when I do I just go have one. The rest of the time when I'm being veggie and need a sandwich on the run I get a falafel, which is far superior to a veggie burger, IMO.
>>7046155 >the idea that somebody could and yet be unable to have it is not difficult for me. That's what I don't get. If you crave something just have it, then get on with your fucking life. The vegan police are not going to show up and take your magic vegan powers away.
>>7046172 So what's important to you is satisfying your wants. You are aware that people are different, and have different approaches to life though, are you not?
Like I said, people can be vegetarian for a wide variety of reasons, from health, to relationships, to environmental ethics, to PETAfag bullshit. Is it really that hard for you to understand that not everybody puts their immediate wants first?
>>7045931 >>7045931 >Not an ounce of meat! How did they compare to real burgers texture/taste wise? How did you bind them together? Would you mind posting a quick run down of how these go together? I'm not veg, but I'll eat anything that tastes good.
>>7046182 >Is it really that hard for you to understand that not everybody puts their immediate wants first? Not at all. What I have trouble with is black and white thinking. I know all the various concerns that motivate people to be vegetarian. That's why I eat a vegan style diet most of the time. But on the rare moment when I get a craving for the taste of killing I indulge, figuring if you can't do no harm just do as little as possible. >>7046186 >But now I just don't want to eat meat. I get that. It's me about 90% of the time. But if I want some the other 10% of the time I'll have it.
>>7046227 Yeah I mean, I still want a cheeseburger occasionally or buffalo wild wings, but I know if i just say "it's ok I'll just have one" I'll fucking go full fucking fat pig and eat like 20 and then puke it up. So I've just accepted that I have no real self control and that a plant based diet is what I should probably stick to.
It's starting to disgust me a little though. I made some chili for my dad last night and the smell of the cooking steak was kind of grossing me out.
>>7046273 >I've just accepted that I have no real self control and that a plant based diet is what I should probably stick to. The way I solve that is by staying plant based at home and at work. The only times I have meat is at social events or when I go out to eat. (That's when being vegan would be a pain in the ass anyways). This allows me to enjoy most of the health/ethical benefits without feeling like I'm denying myself anything.
I get you on the changing tastes thing, though. I'm nowhere near the point where all meat disgusts me, but cheap meat definitely does. I can't eat fast/convenience food unless it's vegetarian. And I never want to eat supermarket chicken again if I can help it. So I just splurge on the good stuff every once in a while, then go back to plant based for my day to day eating.
>>7046347 >There is one vegan food stand in my town.... I live in NYC, which makes it easy. You can always get something vegan from most Asian joints (usually labeled "Buddhist"), and falafel sandwiches are available everywhere. Even fucking Papaya King now has a veggie hot dog. >then usually at every restaurant there might be one kind of shitty vegetarian option. When I'm out to eat at a place like that is when I say fuck it and just have some meat. I can't bring myself to pay dining out prices for second rate food, and at many places the vegetarian option is very much second rate.
