  1. Re: Weekly meal planning: Any successful planners care to share methods?

    I am currently following the McDougall diet so most of my meals come from that. I tend to plan out meals I want to make in the week and pick meals that share a lot of the same ingredients. Most are...

    Hi Lolly! Yep, it's horrible once you take the 'red pill' and realize the truth about meat and dairy. With regards to eggs, baby male chicks are gassed as they are not needed....

    Re: Does a healthy body manufacture B12?

    Yeah, veggie means vegetarian. Yes, I gave up all dairy and eggs in September 2012. But I was tested around 2 years ago and I was told by my doctor that I needed to consume more eggs and dairy, which...

  5. Re: Good news to share regarding vegan food at medical complex!

    Good for you! Yeah, a note would be a nice idea. Have you read the China Study or Forks Over Knives? If so, you could even tell them about it and how nutrition is so important for recovery. There are...

    Noooooo! That's horrible. It is animal rape. That's why I felt so weird watching those two weirdoes forcing the ponies to mate. I just felt so sorry for the ponies, it was undignified. It's rape, no...
