^^^ complete article ^^^

EAST BAY - It was six years ago when Melissa and Jim Burton experienced a case of bovine intervention. "One day we were grilling steaks in our backyard and we were looking at the cattle grazing back there," said Ms. Burton, whose Aquidneck Island property abuts farmland. "There was a moment."

Half the article talked about people no longer eating beef as though that was some sort of achievement. Like killing a chicken instead of a cow was special?

"Lololz I dun jus ate torkay boogars at dem barbeequel olO!Ll."

I thought the article was pretty informative for people who don't know much about veg*nism. But I think the fact that they mentioned raw foodism within the definition of veganism was a little misleading. I tend to think of raw foodism and veganism as seperate things that just overlap often.

raw foodists and vegans are not one and the same.

there are, in fact, people who eat raw meat (as well as having other raw foods such as fruit and veg) and so they are sortof "raw foodists" too.

not all vegans are raw foodists, and not all raw foodists are vegan! they should have been in seperate catagories IMHO.

I did think the "* Semi-vegetarians (or "flexitarians) are people who eat a mostly vegetarian diet, but do consume meat on occasion. Die-hard vegetarians often refer to them as 'pseudo-vegetarians'" line was funny. I don't call them pseudo-vegetarians. I call them omnis.


While the article certainly restated a few misperceptions about the veg*n lifestyle, overall, I thought it was one of the more informative main-steam articles I've read.

they aren't "sort of" raw foodists, they are raw foodists. A lot of raw foodists eat raw honey, raw dairy, raw meat (sashimi, etc)..

I get really annoyed on this raw food message board I go to because everyone there calls themselves "raw vegan" when most of them don't even know what vegan is. It doesn't help that the board owner calls herself raw vegan and promotes her way of eating as raw vegan (including honey, but not dairy or meat.)
