vegetables are awesome and anyone who disagrees is a fucking moron.

I also eat 3-4 pieces of fruit as afternoon snacks. Just keep them at my desk; it's not that hard.

Yes, I'm a big veg head, and just because I eat smoothies doesn't mean I'm somehow trying to avoid the taste. It seems these days the trend is so far away from meat that it's very easy to eat green. I think the whole protein, protein, protein thing is a bit of a fad, and I maintain sub 10% bf easy with a 90% vegan diet, occasionally I include dairy for no particular reason except that I like yogurt and of course sushi at Yasuda once and a while when I need that fix.

I basically eat and prepare with my gf all russian cuisine. No shortage of vegetables there. Cooking vegetables tasty is like most things, you set your effort level and based on that an outcome will realize, with higher effort at least correlating to better outcomes.

Lol. How unexpected from our economist.

Every morning is the way to go. Even if you have a really great blender there is going to be some separation of the solids/liquids, and if some of the smoothie oxidises and turns brown, it doesn't look or taste as good.

Prep every Sunday to make it easy. I put everything in sandwich bags.

In the morning, empty a bag in your blender, add a few fist fulls of spinach, and squeeze a lemon wedge and you're done. Making a cup of coffee takes longer.

I've never cared much for smoothies, but I do love veggies and try to eat lots of them daily. I have a bowl of mixed berries with baby lettuces for breakfast along with a bowl of oatmeal. I snack on apples and oranges throughout the day unless I have a lunch meeting. A bit of hummus for a before dinner snack. Dinner is something vegan. Haven't had meat or dairy at all in 2016, hope I can keep it up. Still making gains in the gym, btw.

I really don't understand why anyone would completely cut out animal protein and dairy from there diet.

It was an overnight decision for me.

I'm a biomedical scientist. I've killed hundreds of mice to perform experiments on them. The reason I'm comfortable with this is because a) the experiments could not be performed without animal models and b) the experiments would result in knowledge that might some day be beneficial to human health.

In fact, those are the criteria that researchers must fulfill before they're granted permission to experiment by the ethics committees. If I could perform these experiments on cell lines or biochemical assays instead of mice, I would do that instead. This is pretty much the same all over the world: if you don't need to harm an animal, you shouldn't.

One day it struck me that I wasn't applying these same ethics to my life choices. I don't need to cause the suffering and death of animals by contributing to the industries responsible. So I don't. Pretty simple.

Yes, but not a whole lot. Some ice and just a bit of water.

Speaking of ice, this is an amazing ice tray:

@hendrix do you only perform experiments on dead subjects or live ones too? I'd find it a tough sell to say I'm fine with torturing another creature in the name of science but I don't eat meat because #ethics

Live and dead. Usually dead but live when I need to.

The point of difference comes in the justification. I'm not one of those vegans that believes animal lives are just as important as human lives. For my work the justification is to increase knowledge that may lead to medical breakthroughs. And again, it's only when I need to; if I can test a hypothesis without the animal model I will. Whereas with what I eat, the reason for including animal products would be simply that I enjoy the taste.
post #55980 of 57262
I'm not fully buying the merits of animal models as relevant to human.
I think if you want to find out if something works on people, test it on them.
I don't think human life is more valuable than any other tho, there are too many of us for a start. Cut some up, reduce the burden on society
