    Yeah, I realized after I posted that that it probably wasn't necessary… because a couple other people had already addressed that. And it sounded like you didn't really strongly believe it anyway.

    Crazy as this may sound, a lot of people actually think that something big is going to happen... like either the "a" word, or a big false flag event or something that would keep Obama in power for a third term. Yes, like I said, it may sound crazy but there's been a lot of talk about this in the last year or so. There is actually some interesting stuff… maybe predictive programming? regarding a short-lived Trump presidency.

    Unless you're talking about that sugary instant oatmeal that comes in packets, what you're saying is simply untrue. Oatmeal is very nutritious and it is not a high glycemic index food. Back when I used to eat unhealthy I'd start my day off with a cup of coffee w/sugar and maybe something sweet then I'd head out the door and I'd always crash a couple hours later and have no energy. But now I often start my day with oatmeal and I always have a very stable amount of energy throughout the day.... and I don't even feel hungry again until like 2 o'clock. Oatmeal is fantastic, unless you're you're talking about that instant kind I mentioned before. Even your paleo people list it at 55... which is considered low. Other stuff to look at:

    You're either missing or twisting the point. I never said that asians are healthy because they eat a lot of rice, my point was simply that carbs are not the enemy. That is how we get our energy, not from eating lard covered bacon and sticks of butter.... that is, unless you want clogged arteries and to a die a heart attack at age 55. Your comment about meat requires more time than I have right now, but I definitely want to get back to it because I think you're very wrong on a number of levels.

    My first reaction was to laugh, but I think it's sad that you seem to actually believe that. You have really fallen hard for the Paleo lies. I mean, more than anyone I've ever seen. So for now, we're going to have to agree to disagree. Plus, I've got 7 or 8 keys on my laptop not working, so typing right now takes forever. I will try to get back to this later though.

    I read your post and I heard you, and I stand by what I said. You do realize that rice is the staple food for more than half of the worlds population? I don't see too many fat Asians, but I do see a lot of fat Americans. When I talked about healthy carbs, I was not talking only about non-starchy vegetables. There's nothing wrong with potatoes, rice, oatmeal etc. In fact since I started eating more healthy carbs, I've never been healthier. That may be your experience, but there are tons of people who have a very different experience with a high carb diet... as I said, most of the worlds population. I don't want to get into a debate about eating meat right now, but there's no nutritional reason to eat meat /dairy. The main reason people eat meat is for their tastebuds and habit/tradition.

    BS. Carbs are not the enemy. I'm amazed at how many people on the site have fallen for the Paleo anti-carb nonsense. For starters, "carbs" is a vague term...carbs can mean cookies, candy and junk food, or it can mean heathy vegetables and fruits. So right off the bat, it's deceptive to say that carbs are bad. Zippy was right when he said that being fat stems from a wrong lifestyle, which starts with a wrong mindset. Eating the standard American diet (which is horrible) not exercising, and not really caring about your health is what causes people to be fat. That's why there are so many fat people in America. Too much fast food, too much meat, dairy, processed food and junk food. Don't worry about carbs, worry about the type of food that you're eating. Just to add...my diet has always included a lot of carbs (even before I went plant-based), and I've always been thin or at the right weight for my height. In the past, it was probably because I had a high metabolism. But now it's because I eat healthy, even though I eat a high carb diet. :)

    Ha. Did he know what it was before you called it a veggie burger? I like some veggie burgers, but I guess like you said, I don't have the "it has to taste just like meat" mindset. I tried a vegan pizza (frozen) recently and it was really good. (I'm not usually a fan of frozen pizza.) I'll definitely be getting that again, for days when I'm too lazy to cook. But for the most part, I try not to buy substitute stuff, because it's not as healthy as eating homemade plant-based whole food.

    Yeah, I was just saying that there's a specific market for faux meat, and it's growing in popularity, even though it still doesn't taste the same. I think that people who go vegan for ethical reasons don't care that it doesn't taste the same, they're just glad to be eating something that doesn't involve torturing a sentient being.

    Since you (like Mr. Motz) are an enthusiastic carnivore, I have a question for you. :) Would you be open to lab grown meat, which (unlike the impossible burger and other veggie burgers) actually IS animal flesh... just without the torture and killing? I also don't like the idea. But I think they're mainly geared toward people transitioning to a vegan diet, who maybe find it hard to quit meat cold turkey. (no pun intended)

    Of course they have the right to exclude who they want. I absolutely agree with you that people have the right to freely associate and live among like minded people... but I don't see how she's denying anyone's right to free association, she's simply voicing opposition to certain traditions. I think it's good to question traditions. And that inevitably makes people angry. I'm sure slaveholders were pissed off when people questioned the tradition of slavery.

    Yeah, I read that she admits being loud and vocal. I guess opinionated troublemakers don't fit in, in neutral Switzerland. Personally, I think that some traditions do need to be challenged (I say that as a conservative.) But there's also a right and wrong way to go about doing that... Alienating people is not a good idea.

    Not surprising that a little country known for cheese wouldn't have open arms for a person who speaks out against dairy. We wouldn't want her views to catch on, now would we?

    Thank you for posting this. Interesting. Maybe this is why the media is not reporting on it. Because the Mexican government is not the only government involved with drugs. And our govt/media wants to keep that in the dark, of course. :-/

    I'm definitely not a Trump supporter, but turning her acceptance speech into a political rant was inappropriate, classless and an extremely divisive thing to do, at a time when we need the exact opposite.

    lilymc replied to a thread What's for dinner? in Open Discussion
    I like mangos, but I usually don't put them in smoothies. I was just out of bananas and berries, so I used what I had. It was yummy though. You can't taste the spinach, if you only put in a handful or so. Not that I dislike spinach, I love fresh spinach, but with the sweet fruit you can't taste it. :) About the almond milk... I like the regular one. Not vanilla, but not the unsweetened one either. But I think the unsweetened one is good in some things that you want to make without adding sweetness. Like creamy soups or whatever. I'm trying not to drink coffee much anymore (because I'm too susceptible to sugar addiction and I don't like it black) but when I do drink coffee, I use regular almond milk and I like it. I'll try your smoothie and look at that shake mix supplement, it sounds good. :D Thanks for that and for watching the vid.
