Exactly.

Though the good thing about PB 'junk' (in this case, burgers) is...

we don't kill or abuse a sentient being.


Killing for food is natural. It isn’t bad. How is is done can definitely be bad. It is important to know where one’s food is from and how it has been cared for.


Unfortunatley, death is death.

Yes, some might argue that killing spiders in the lettuce fields

is killing animals...and I respect that, but on a larger scale,

we don't need to raise/kill/manufacture animals food, in particular.  

Everything we need nutritionally can be obtain through plant sources. 


We will always disagree on this point. As a human, I have no nutritional need for any plants at all.

All these yummy ingredients and I never understand why you don't put your monthly hamburger threads in the RECIPE or KITCHEN forum.

I'm not sure what you mean, or maybe I'm mistaking humor for a serious question.

In answer to what  I think might be your question, I don't have monthly hamburger threads discussing "yummy ingredients.".

If you deleted your own harsh comments from just a little while ago, you have done a good thing to maintain civil conversation.

On this I can be the example that you're both right. I love junk food--not proud of it but it's true--but I also get the Beyond Burger when I go through Carl's Jr. 

 

It's not that I'm super excited it's PB but I am happy an animal didn't have to die so I can enjoy it. Another plus is that it's really, really, delicious! 

 

Still hoping to get to Burger King to try the Impossible Burger. I hear they're good too. One of these days...

Nope. Don't delete. I stand behind everything I write.

If I would write a post saying 'the sun comes up in the East',

there would be posters would would argue by saying it

comes up in the West. And they would prob begin believing it

does come up in the West.  PB discussions have that same feel at times.

@sidsmom PB discussions have that feel sometimes because SOME posters insist, often in a mean way, that everyone who does not follow PB is ignorant (that has been used) or otherwise somehow inferior because they are not PB.  Hence, the thing you are talking about.

 

FIve guesses how that happens?  Really?

Facts are facts.

The way it's presented, or more importantly how it's perceived,

does not make those facts less true.

The human body workings are pretty finite.

I give up - everything either causes cancer or will kill you.  I need to lose about 35 lbs and yet I have lost that same darn 35 lbs and often more weight many times more than I care to count but it always finds me again.  I know what my problem is - I'm an emotional eater and lots of deaths and diseases among family, friends and myself have happened over the past 5 years.  Cancer and heart issues.

 

Dad had heart issues and dementia.  The dementia and BF's Alzheimers really slammed me hard bc it's rough helplessly watching someone leave you long before they actually die.   


@Financialgrl  I'm so sorry for what you are going through.  A very dear friend of mine, my mentor in the corporate world, has Alzheimer's and it's heart wrenching for all of us.  While I do not know you, I'm sending you the biggest hug!  Take care, sweetie, and be kind to yourself.

Re: How those plant-based burgers emerge from the laboratory

I didn't eat fast food before, so I won't be now. I make my own veggie burgers so I know what goes in them.
