While I applaud the efforts of the quick meals trade in trying to offer vegetarian and extra healthful options to the crap they already promote each day, I’ve to level out shortcomings and defects of their makes an attempt to offer vegetarian and wholesome options that sabotage or defeat the entire objective of trying to offer more healthy and meat-less (vegetarian) merchandise.
Is well being or the wellbeing of the American folks the principle goal in promoting vegetarian merchandise or is it monetary acquire? Unfortunately for all of the individuals who wish to imagine the quick meals trade is coming round and changing into extra well being acutely aware, the quick meals trade’s goal in promoting vegetarian gadgets such because the veggie burger is strictly business, at the least proper now or presently.
Why? Because till the vegetarian gadgets are utterly missing animal byproducts, the marketing and promoting of vegetarian gadgets is to deceive quick meals customers into believing that they’ve a alternative in consuming meatless or more healthy gadgets and merchandise, which simply is not true
Take McDonald’s, Burger King, and the Habit for instance. They all promote a veggie burger. But that veggie burger patty (if the patty itself shouldn’t be solely vegetable based mostly) is cooked in ANIMAL LARD primary, and quantity two, cooked on the identical grill that meat (DEAD ANIMAL FLESH) is cooked on.
All meat comprises parasites and worms, and the ugliest ones that you would ever see with the human eyes. I do know this personally as I’ve completed the private analysis (and have been introduced analysis from Doctah B, Bro. Tarik, and others within the Los Angeles space) and have the nauseating images to point out you. TOTALLY GROSS!
Some folks thought they have been avoiding animal byproducts by solely consuming French fries from the quick meals restaurant, not figuring out that almost all quick meals eating places akin to McDonald’s have been cooking their fries in vegetable oil combined with beef juice. That’s proper! McDonald’s add beef juice to its cooking oil for taste, along with spraying the fires with a sugar answer, freezing them and delivery them off to McDonald’s franchises, and after cooking the sugar sprayed fries in beef juice (oil), sodium chloride (salt) is added and you’ve got probably the most addictive merchandise in America – McDonald’s French fries!
Take Subway for instance, a spot I used to eat at typically in my early vegan days and whereas I used to be within the Corporate world. I had my locations to eat at and menus to select from. However, consuming out was the exception to the rule and never the rule, as I usually ready my very own lunch. But Subway was proper throughout the road from my place of employment and the meals was a lot lighter than the stuff offered on the extra basic quick meals institutions.
However, as I turned extra non secular and well being acutely aware, it began to hassle me consuming at institutions that served vegetarian merchandise alongside with meat or flesh merchandise. I used to order the Veggie Max sub sandwich from Subway. But the soy based mostly Veggie Max patty was in a container or bin subsequent to bacon (pig’s again finish). This was not a far distance for the microscopic parasites and worms to crawl from the bacon bin to the veggie patty bin. Also, the veggie patty was lower in two with the identical knife used to chop meat with. You see, it actually does not matter for those who’re well being acutely aware or vegan or vegetarian and the particular person making ready your meals (or product) shouldn’t be. To the quick meals worker, they’re simply making ready one other product completely oblivious to strict meals sanitary preparation ethics and ideas.
Another factor to level out in regards to the Subway Veggie Max sub or sandwich is that it was (1) cooked (really, RADIATED) in a microwave oven, (2) cooked or radiated in the identical microwave oven as meat or flesh merchandise (pork worms cannot be killed in warmth due to a heat-resistant shell that types across the worm in very excessive temperatures, and the one substance that may penetrate or break open that shell is the hydrochloric acid of the human physique).
One day whereas out in town with my kids right here in Glendale, California, my daughter needed some noodles or Chow Mein and I feel some vegetable-fried rice or egg rolls from Panda Express, I actually cannot bear in mind precisely the gadgets, however I do bear in mind asking the Panda Express worker to organize an completely vegetarian plate – NO MEAT OR MEAT-BYPRODUCTS WHATSOEVER, i.e. vegetable-fried rice, Chow Mein, steamed greens, and to my utter shock, the worker actually advised me that NOTHING at Panda Express was vegetarian. Absolutely nothing! I stated, “Even the vegetable-fried rice, noodles, and steamed vegetables?” He stated “That’s right, Sir!” With a discombobulated look on my face, the worker then advised me that Panda Express pours hen juice on all of its gadgets. So now I am serious about the time when time compelled me to get one thing on the go and I acquired what I assumed was utterly vegetarian from Panda Express.
And after all, I’ve heard comparable accounts from my good Vegan comrades as effectively. So if you wish to know a factor, ask. And by all means, do not presume.
If you suppose these vegetarian corn canine at Hot Dog On-A-Stick are vegetarian, suppose once more! They comprise egg whites (within the bread batter).
I additionally used to eat the vegetarian burritos at Baha Fresh Mexican Grill. I began getting complications. Why? White flour tortillas cooked on the identical grill because the slaughtered flesh (meat). So what did I do to treatment the issue? I Left these burritos alone and I’ve been effective ever since.
I bear in mind my early vegan days of 1997 and 1998 and pondering I used to be not consuming any animal components or byproducts by any means solely to find that these black beans I used to be consuming from El Pollo Loco contained chunks of hen. One day whereas consuming these black beans, I seen a wierd substance in them. When I picked the substance up and carefully analyzed it, I used to be disgusted to be holding a bit of hen in my hand. Boy did I really feel nauseated at this revelation and discovery. I needed to let these beans go regardless of how good they tasted. I refuse to let style disillusion me right into a state of poor well being and into an early grave.
Vegetarian doesn’t imply vegan! Vegan means “completely animal free, including dairy products and eggs,” whereas vegetarian means “meat-free but not dairy/eggs-free.” A vegetarian burrito at a quick meals restaurant could comprise cheese and bitter cream (congealed cow snot or mucus). Some veggie burger patties might also comprise cheese. Cheese is from an animal so how can it’s animal free? While many well being acutely aware of us and can be vegans take pleasure in Boca Burgers, some manufacturers comprise egg whites and cheese, so begin studying the ingredient listing on the field.
So though McDonald’s now has a veggie burger, simply know that its veggie burger is cooked in beef oil, along with the truth that the veggie burger is centered between two white, refined grain buns, conventionally grown iceberg lettuce (the worst lettuce to eat and probably the most nutritionally poor plant to eat) and genetically engineered tomatoes (if you’d like lettuce and tomatoes in your veggie burger). The identical factor may be stated of Burger King and the Habit’s veggie burgers.
However, for those who’re on the street or out and about in society and should make a option to eat one thing that isn’t so insalubrious, it will be a good suggestion to expertise round with a serious quick meals chain’s veggie burger reasonably than give in to the standard crap that has been served over time and that you just all the time purchased and ate. However, it’s higher (and wiser) to hunt out vegan eating places earlier than you really hit the city (for those who’re a well being acutely aware particular person or vegan).
I understand how troublesome it’s to be vegan (at first) and to not have vegan eateries so simply and readily accessible, particularly for those who reside in a small city. I am grateful that the Greater Los Angeles space and Southern California basically is loaded with vegan spots round city to get one thing healthful and nutritious to eat. The identical is true for different massive cities across the nation akin to New York City, Atlanta, San Diego, San Francisco-Oakland Bay space, and so forth.
If you are having hassle finding vegan eateries across the nation, contact Friends of Animals at [email protected] or (203)656-1522 for a potential itemizing of vegan eating places.
If you are within the Greater Los Angeles space, chances are you’ll contact us at http://www.DHERBS.com for an inventory of vegan (and vegetarian) eating places.
Eating wholesome is a journey, self-discipline, and way of life and doesn’t come with out challenges within the early phases. However, as you grow to be extra well being acutely aware, you may uncover extra wholesome locations to eat at whereas out in town.
Thank you for studying! PEACE, LOVE and LIGHT!
