    Like those califags who vacation in old lyme, then come into the supermarket and say they don't want plastic bags because they hurt the enviornment.

    That is the only time I'm ever even close to rude to customers. I tell them "We order these bags in units of 10 boxes with 2,000 bags in each box. You aren't making a difference."

    Unless you're a vegetarian because you love animals too much or something, it was directed at vegetarians in general.

    but if more people start using them then they wont have to order as much bags. And its one less bag thats rotting in some landfill.

    I'm a firm believer of the canvas bag. Most people I know are starting or already use them.

    i've talked to a few vegetarians and was thinking about becoming one but when they said their main source of protein was nuts, i decieded not to because i'm allergic to nuts...so then i wouldn't get any protein.
    although, if i wasn't allergic to nuts...and if my parents would be willing to cook vegetarian meals for me(which i'm sure they wouldn't) then i would seriously consider being a vegetarian.

    For me protein is def not a problem, there are many meat replacment products out that that do contain high amounts of protein like beefless ground beef or chickenless chicken strips. Before I was started becoming vegetarian I talked to a bunch of other veggie eaters and one girl said for protein she would take protein powder and mix it with milk or make it into a shake ( though some taste really really shitty thast why u get a good brand ), u also got tofu you can cook with, theres also fruits that contain simple amino acids and if u eat various fruits with grains and nuts u cna get all the required amino acids ( meat contains all the necesary amino acid) since i'm lacto-ovo vegetarian I can consume milk and eggs and get my protein there if I need to. Alot of vegetarians usually jump into becoming that way without a plan and there diets always lack something (I've noticed this in alot of people that i have talked to). I bet a majority of vegetarian teens probably won't be able to do too many stanous activitys cause of there unstable diets.

    For me everything is in check these past 3 months since I started, and my diet has been the healthiest its ever been, TBH the thing I know my diet lacks the most but i'm still getting enough of is fats and sodium, which are both needed for runners considering both those usually come with with the process of eating meat
    What the fuck!?!?

    its practically imitation chicken, like imitation crab meat that looks like crab but is accually produced from whitefish, The chickenless chicken strips I buy looks like chiken, and has the texture of chicken and is created from gluten, from what i remember of what chicken taste like I thing its taste pretty similar. its also contains good amount of protien.
