Here me out: -Eating animals is murder. You wouldn't eat your cat or dog right? - You can get protein other ways. Meat is never healthy. -There have even been studies of people with cancer switching to a full plant-based diet and curing them. the meat industry is also losing more money. Once those animals are gone that's it.

  • Would you eat a vegan soufflé?

    Best answer: No. And souffle is made from eggs, and therefore not vegan. Anyways, I'm not a vegan or vegetarian. I've never had souffle. I might try some souffle, if it had breakfast sausage in it. But leave out the broccoli and asparagus. I don't eat vegan imitations of anything. If I was going to eat a burger, I... show more
    Best answer: No. And souffle is made from eggs, and therefore not vegan. Anyways, I'm not a vegan or vegetarian. I've never had souffle. I might try some souffle, if it had breakfast sausage in it. But leave out the broccoli and asparagus.

    I don't eat vegan imitations of anything. If I was going to eat a burger, I would eat a real hamburger made from 100% beef. Not a veggie burger. If I was going to eat pizza, I would eat a meat lovers pizza, with real meat and real cheese.

    That's the way I am, and it's not going to change.

    Best answer: We have gotten this question a lot here. And I think the answer is interesting so I wrote a little essay.

    Veganism has a definition, a philosophy and a goal. Vegans try to behave in a way that is consistent with those things. Since honey is an animal product it is not considered vegan.

    Also whether you agree with this or not, it doesn't matter how the animal is treated. the dairy cows and laying chickens could lead wonderful lives. but milk and eggs aren't vegan. So its consistent that it doesn't matter how the bees are treated as well.

    However, he honey is stolen from the bees. The bees don’t want it to be taken. For many vegans that is all, they need to know. It’s exploitation of an animal.

    Another fact that vegans consider is that honey is not necessary or essential to the human diet. There ARE other sweeteners. It is just another way of ingesting sugar. It might have more nutrients than table sugar but it still has all the adverse health effects of any simple carbohydrate.

    There is harm done to bees by beekeepers. Some beekeepers are small businesses and like small farms do take good care of their bees. They still steal the honey. Clipping of wings, replacing (killing) the queen... these are just some of the practices that vegans see as a cruel.

    The big commercial beekeeping companies transport their hives in semis. and the transportation of the bees puts them under a lot of stress and millions of them die during the trips.

    Regardless, honey is still a gray area for vegans. There are so many vegans that think it's OK to eat honey they have a label: Begans. (Bee-gans, get it?)

    One of the issues Vegans have is that insects don’t deserve compassion. They have brains the size of a ballpoint pen tip. Another issue is that commercial beekeeping results in the fertilization of most fruit and nut trees. Something like 100 crops are dependent on commercial beekeeping fertilizing the crops.

    So If beekeeping isn't vegan - then neither are fruits and nuts. Vegans eat the crops that are pollinated by these bees. There is really no way to avoid them. Some vegans think that if crops are a byproduct of bee exploitation, and vegans eat crops, then why not honey, too?

    In general, honey bees are better cared for then commercial bees.

    The (pure ) vegan argument is that the vegan doctrine states animal suffering should be "reasonably avoided" as opposed to "avoided at any cost." And it's more than possible to avoid purchasing honey. It would be almost impossible to avoid all the foods that are pollinated by bees.

    To further complicate the whole thing. Right now we are in the middle of a huge bee die-off. No one is sure of what has caused Colony Collapse Disorder(CCD). But many experts suspect it might have to do with pesticides and fungicides, that the commercial bees are exposed to when they fertilize crops. Its possible that the CCD is human-caused. This may be another reason to support organic farming.

    The honey bees used for honey production are generally better-taken care of than the commercial bees that pollinate our crops. You can buy organic honey (and Free Trade honey, too). So you could argue that buying honey is helping to preserve and protect bees.

    Vegans are intelligent thinking people. Each vegan is more than qualified to make up their own mind.

    I do recommend that if you want to determine where you stand on this issue you take the time to read my links.

    Oh, BTW, I still have a little jar of honey in my pantry for when I get a sore throat. I bought it from a local beekeeper before reading those articles. I do not think I will buy another one.

  • What's the best City to live if your vegan/vegetarian?

    Best answer: I think it depends on if you are cooking for yourself most of the time, of eating out for most of your meals. As long as there are decent grocery stores and or farmers markets, there is no reason you as a vegetarian or vegan can't live in pretty much any city.

  • My vegan pastry looks and tastes like rotten cardboard. How do I improve its texture and flavor?

    Best answer: Throw it out! Make a normal pastry that is not vegan, or don't make one at all! In order for a pastry to turn out successful, you need to use milk, eggs, and butter (or lard, which is pig fat). If you substitute soymilk instead of milk, and omit the eggs and butter/lard, it's not going to turn out... show more
    Best answer: Throw it out! Make a normal pastry that is not vegan, or don't make one at all!

    In order for a pastry to turn out successful, you need to use milk, eggs, and butter (or lard, which is pig fat). If you substitute soymilk instead of milk, and omit the eggs and butter/lard, it's not going to turn out right.

    Just like it would be better to eat a real steak or a real hamburger, than it would be to eat tofu.

    Vegan substitutes are like a bad tornado - it sucks!

    Just ditch veganism altogether and make the pastry right, instead of trying to make a vegan imitation.
