U2Bama's Vegetarian Thread

Just to clear up any long-standing confusion: I am not, and never have been, a vegetarian.

I realize this fact goes against the very spirit of being a U2 fan, but it is a choice I have lived with my entire life, and, you know, I am okay with it.

There are many "vegetarian" food items that I enjoy, but there are also many food items I enjoy that contain meat. I do not wish to eat bean burritoes, falaffel, and Caesar salad every meal of every day, although I do enjoy each of them.

I eat the following meat products:
beef
pork
chicken
crustacean (shrimp, crab, crawfish)
lamb
venison (deer)
fish (tuna)

I am sorry if this disappoints any of you. I couldn't live under your false impressions of me any longer.

If it means that I can't be a U2 fan, then so be it.

~U2Alabama

What's wrong with being an omnivore? Nothing to be ashamed of U2Bama, in fact, Vegetarianism is only healthy if its pulled off properly. I know someone who is supposedly a vegetarian and is ruining her health.

Prima in Walnut Creek California has the best Veal Chop I have ever had...

Bama - Caesar salads have anchovies or anchovy past - so they are not vegetarian. Also, most refried beans use bacon grease...

Just FYI

Although there is a Greek-owned, "Southern cookin" meat & three cafeteria in North Birmingham that serves very good veal, I have avoided ordering it over the past few years becuase I do feel bad for the little baby calves (maybe there IS hope for me?).

Possum, raccoon, or fox would be a very efficient meat source where I live; their roadkill rate is exponential.

Ant, if I were to attempt vegetarianism, I would starve to death within a week.

Thermopylae, if a restaurant at which I am eating indicates the presence of anchovies on their Caesar, I order it without; most places where I order Caesar Salad are steakhouses (ironically, with a Sirloin), and they use a cheap but very tasty imitation dressing, sometimes scattered with eggwhites, so I guess that would be a violation.

MissMacPh, I knew you would do that.

Just ask this scientician. He'll tell you that, in nature, one creature invariably eats another creature to survive. Don't kid yourself Bama. If a cow ever got the chance, he'd eat you and everyone you care about!

I've eaten squirrel before. A little gamey but tastes like chicken (what doesn't?).

I love meat

------------------
And I feel like I'm slowly slowly slowly slipping under.

And I feel like I'm holding onto nothing.

Rono, please explain what you mean by "biologically produced meat"

I thought all meat was produced biologically

O.K., i try. Producing bio-meat is ehh, growing animals up without help of Hormons ( cow ) or antibiotica ( used for pig, to gain more wieght ) and with enough space to move around. You can think about chickenfarms for producing eggs, there are 7-8 chicken in a cage. You ever been in such a place ? Not very biologic .Just take a look. Ore producing veal, they a calf into a very small box so he can not move around. That is the way to keep veal nice red and tender. But not the way to treath animals.

------------------
I can`t change the world but i can
change the world in me.

Hearing only what you want to hear and knowing only what you've heart.
Read you, Rono.

There definitely exist in America "biologically produced" (perhaps the proper term is "humanely produced") eggs.
