    My ex-BF used to get lamb from New Zealand, and then have me charcoal barbecue it. (I'm totally inept in a modern kitchen, but surprisingly good in primitive outdoor conditions. Must be decades of military field training and personal camping)

    But my Italian husband always ridicules vegans. And I could see he wasn't pleased at his first visit with his new cardiologist, who told him he had to go vegetarian, and preferably vegan, like he was himself.

    But what ticked me was when the doctor took this patronizing approach with us, saying the way to know how to eat vegetarian was to consume nothing with a "face" (eyes, mouth).

    Well, we're not 5-year-olds, we understand the concept of vegetarian and vegan. So I said to the doctor:

    "Not even fish? I thought some fish could be part of a healthy heart diet."

    "No fish, nothing with a face."

    "Well, if he can't eat anything with a face, what if I put a paper bag over my head?"

    His expression was priceless, and I thought my husband would die. We still laugh about it years later. And still eating things with a face.

    Any time this topic arises. Because lots of guys here are new, and others may have missed my previous post about this.

    Concepts you evidently aren't considering. Web sites are a moving train, with people getting onboard and getting off continuously. Things I or you wrote 6 months ago here are barely remembered, if at all (well, unless it's southbeach1500, who obsessively catalogs my posts).

    We're constantly reinventing the wheel. Because this is a dynamic, ever-changing environment, not the static world we have with our real-world friends. Are you with me now?

    I have no problem with vegan cuisine, I am going to a vegan restaurant tomorrow. But in our society, I feel like limiting yourself like that is a pretension.
