I was driving the other day and was passed by a car that was covered in ads for "almost vegetarian gourmet" personal chef services. I was very intrigued and went to their website, www.almost-vegetarian-gourmet.com
and they're right. It's not vegetarian. They use stuff like fish oils and shrimp.
I was wondering...how much good does that really do? I wonder how many people there are that aren't veg that want to reduce their meat intake enough to use a personal chef. And it's not usable by vegans or vegetarians. Why wouldn't they just go all out and be vegetarian? That way at least they could pick up on the veg market and also be an option for those omnis just looking to reduce.
The "about" page talks about the fact that it is hard for most people to be pure vegan or vegetarian. Why wouldn't the company try to help them out and go full veg to offer them another option? Do people really have that hard of a time being KIND OF veg that they need someone to help them out?
The FAQ also has what I believe to be some false info... They talk about how a vegetarian diet is inherently low carb and vegetables have less carbs than meat. Now I don't know the full carb content of meat, but I doubt that! And I know that a veg diet CAN be low carb, but wouldn't the most natural form be pretty reasonably carb-y? They didn't cite anything or give any evidence, so I wonder how they came up with that.
Anyway, I just saw it and wanted to bring it up. I know that every little bit helps, and if they're helping people reduce their meat consumption, great, but it just seems a little odd to admittedly be "almost veg." Thoughts?
