Apparently Arby's now has a vegan help hotline for vegans who don't want to eat their new bacon. Normally I would be really upset over something like this but for some reason I find it hilarious because it shows if a company like Arby's is having this type of campaign it means vegetarians/vegans are just getting more mainstream. :P

A hotline? Like "I don't like veggie bacon, please help!" kind of thing? Or is it that they don't want to eat real bacon so they need some kind of hotline? I'm confuzzled.

It basically advertises their bacon and than tells you to go eat a salad. Its very very stupid.

From my friend today about why she will never go vegan and why I'm unhealthy...

I respect people for being vegan, I respect that they would rather have perhaps a less beneficial diet in order to not be part of the farming trade
all the big organisations have the wrong information about what is good and what is bad for the human diet
people are taught it all wrong, dieticians, scientists, doctors, surgeons, biologists etc. because no one knows any better
Now this is what I was talking about before, how do you know that their blood results are healthy if the original scientific reports were made to look that way for drug companies to get more money
my mother has done research, comparing all of the diets out there, and meat is essential for your diet for longevity. all the scientific studies are wrong and if you go right back to their source you can find they're all bias and were pushed by money to be published as real
not even blood test nutrient ranges are correct. the actual ranges are what my mother has found research for and her blood test now say she is unhealthy when she goes to the GP but healthy when she does it by her ranges

Later in the conversation...
If I can prove a vegan's bloodwork matches your preferred levels, what of you accepting veganism?

Her response...
I don't think you can prove it because it's in the research my mum has done already, she's compared blood results from vegetarians, vegans, paleos, high carb diets, low carb diets etc. all with people on the similar sort of diet that she's on
Trust me, she's done it all
because her aim was to find the healthiest way of living which would prevent illness and provide longevity



My heart breaks for her </3

So if you ask to see her published data you cant because of the ol' 'everybodies out to get her' theory?

I guess her mom has never read the China Study or that in almost all the "blue zones" of the world they eat very little meat. But honestly most doctors I know don't go around telling people to eat more meat, it is usually "eat more veggies and fruit". My own doctor who isn't a vegan told this to my mom when she was all worried I was going vegan he said something like "I see nothing wrong with this I usually tell my patients to eat more fruits and veggies."

yes!!! I hate it when people say I'm "picky" as if we just arbitrarily pick foods not to eat because we don't like them

I was at the dentist I was "talking" with this guy who said to me "I'm not a Rabbit I don't eat veggies, they are over rated! I couldn't live without bacon." He just kept on repeating that to me over and over again. I couldn't respond as the dentist had called my name.

I was invited to a fair by a couple of friends and I didn't know anything about this fair before I went, I was think it was just one with rides and games and things like that. This place had this huge area of many farm animals like goats, sheep, cows, chickens, alpaca, none of them were caged and you were allowed to pet them. If I knew they were there I probably wouldn't have gone. There was this one really obnoxious guy who kept walking through the cow area slapping his stomach and saying "Beef it's what for dinner!" Oh and every night this stupid fair has a chicken dinner, so after everyone is done petting the cute little chicks and chickens they eat chicken! I don't get it at all. It bothered me so much.

Ugh. A friend of mine just posted pictures of her daughter playing with someone's pet pig at a barbecue. I commented that pigs are so sweet and intelligent, and that it bothered me to think of this pig's family hosting a barbecue. At first my friend said that she didn't see any pork there, but then her husband said "There were ribs. I had one. They were delicious!" I was upset both at the idea of people who care for a pet pig eating pig, and at my friend's husband callously saying that pig ribs are delicious on a picture of his daughter playing with a pig.

It's like they think the ribs they are eating magically appeared there and didn't come from another adorable little pig. It is really disturbing though that they would eat pig if they have a pet pig. Could you imagine if someone had a pet dog or cat and then had a barbecue with another dog/cat on the menu. People would think they were psychos.

I had the fortune to be able to show my 15 yo nieces (2 mums, 2 mos apart) the place where my friends get the humane beef for their dogs (15, huskies, malamutes and wolf hybrids). These are retired dairy cows that are put down by a vet after living out the last of their lives in the most beautiful pasture about a 1/4 mile from my mum's house. When the cows do pass on, every bit is used. We happened to be there on a day when the butcher was, and walked by the better part of a whole cow, sans skin, being made into dog food.

Niece #1 (sweet and talented, but a bit vapid): What is THAT? It looks like meat!
Me (evil auntie of evilness): It is.
Niece #2 (whip-smart, aspiring veterinarian, already veggie): Ooo! Neat! Look at the musculo-skeletal structure! She must have been a fine beast! (goes off to talk to the butcher)
#1: But...that looks like a roast...(turning green)
Me: It is.
#1 (light dawns): That's beef! Like steaks and roast and hamburger! (runs up and hides her face in my shirt) Can we go now? I SO need to learn to be a vegetarian.

I mean theymakebacon flavored suckers. Which is kinda gross.
